Modernize your high-waisted jeans and makeover your 2022 wardrobe. Your shoes can make wide-leg jeans one of the most flattering or least flattering jeans you own. The right heels and high-rise jeans work wonders together for an effortlessly stylish outfit. Pick the perfect flats and you will see how it feels to be comfortable and look fashionably pulled together at the same time.
Flattering Wide Leg Jeans
Sandals With a Heel
Avoid looking squatty when you’re wearing wide-leg jeans by adding some height with a heel. Unlike flats that stop your leg line short, heels continue to elongate your legs beyond your hemline. Any kind of heel helps. You can wear block heels, a chunky wedge, or dainty heels like I suggested last fall.

Square Toe Slides
For comfort’s sake, sometimes you have to let it slide. Every girl on the go needs flats that work with her jeans. Since flats don’t have the added benefit of naturally elongating your legs beyond your hemline, you can compensate with pointed-toe shoes. Pointed-toe shoes are less bulky than rounded toes. Wearing a backless mule or nude flats breaks up the bulk by showing a little skin.

Low Profile Sneakers
Fashion sneakers can work with all your outfits. This season what’s old is new again. Classic Converse “Chucks” are back! Avoid looking bottom-heavy by picking a pair that fits close to your foot. High tops are hot right now. A canvas lace-up will fit close to your foot and tuck up and under your wide-leg jeans. Show a little skin and avoid looking bottom-heavy in a low-profile lace-up sneaker.
