6 Ways to Style Skinnies and Boots Like Katie Holmes, J.Lo, and More

To state the obvious, skinny jeans and boots go together like peanut butter and jelly. It's a tried-and-true outfit combo for fall, but if you're anything like me, you can easily fall into a rut and rely on the same look over and over. My go-to is a white tee, dark skinny jeans, and black ankle boots—the same shoes I've pulled out every fall for the last 4 years. (Note to self: perhaps it's time for a fresh pair?)

Many of the celebrity-inspired outfits below are composed of pieces you may already own. Kaia Gerber, for instance, loves a color-coordinated look and recently wore a black leather jacket, sweater, bag, and boots with blue jeans for a polished ensemble. Scroll down for 6 ways to style skinny jeans and boots like Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Middleton, and more.

There's a reason Levi's is still going strong after so many decades: the jeans are just that good. 

Ugg just launched these shortened versions of its most popular boots. The lower shaft makes these shoes even more versatile than normal.
