I'm a Stylist, and I Always Tell Clients to Wear These 5 Shoe Trends With Jeans

VIP Nordstrom stylist Sandy Koszarek previously shared her favorite trends with us. While chatting, she also revealed that one of the questions clients routinely ask her is what shoe trends look best with jeans. So we thought it could be informative to have her offer up some of the combos she suggests—you know, in an effort to potentially inspire your denim and shoe wardrobes.

For the most part, Koszarek often recommends footwear silhouettes that are extremely versatile and could be worn with a range of items, jeans included. Below, you'll see the shoes in question, including of-the-moment boots and a comfortable flats style.
