“What are the best boots with my jeans?” is the thing I’m asked the most each fall and winter. Choosing the wrong boot to wear with your jeans will ruin your outfit. These are the boot and jean styles you’ll be seeing the most this season. Start with these combinations on sale now and avoid a closet crisis later.
WESTERN BOOTS AND FLARE-LEG JEANS
Western boots have always been popular, but are the front runners for fall’s must-have boots. It’s no surprise they look the best with all of your boot-cut jeans. Boot cut or wide-leg jeans that have an opening of 16″ or more that don’t get caught up on suede or bulkier profile western boots.

Trend Alert- Don’t save your new western boots for winter. Wear them right now with a jean skirt or a ditsy print dress.
Sit and Stay
These AG ex-boyfriend straight-leg ripped jeans have a 14″ opening and are 28.5″ long so they sit and stay over these western boots. Most western boots come up a little higher which helps keep them from getting caught.
STRAIGHT-LEG JEANS AND SHORT BOOTS
This is where most women get caught up, literally! The trick is knowing the numbers. First, you should know your full-length inseam (the distance from your center crotch seam to the ground). Then shop in Jen’s Jean Shop or check online to find out the jean’s width at the “opening”. Most straight-leg jeans fall straight from the knee to the bottom of your hem and usually have a leg opening width between 12”-14″. Anything less will be too tight to tuck a jean under.
Straight Leg Sale Jeans
Make sure you choose an inseam that goes over the top of your boots by a few inches so it doesn’t get caught on the top of your boot when you walk.
Fitted-to-the-foot boot styles are the most flattering. Sometimes shorter styles, like these, that are leather instead of suede are easier to style since they don’t tend to stick to your jeans as easily.
These fitted styles come up a little higher, hugging your ankle so they work well with cropped jeans.

FLAT BOOTS AND SKINNY JEANS
Don’t ditch your skinny jeans just yet. They look best with flat boots that are too bulky for all your other jeans. AG’s Prima a best-selling style from last year’s anniversary sale is on sale again this year.
Boots for Skinny Jeans
Most of these styles are waterproof and come in more colors.
STACKED-HEEL BOOTS AND WIDE-LEG FLARES
It’s all about balance. Sometimes wider-leg jeans need the height and weight of a stacked heel. Wide-leg jeans are going to be the most popular style this season.

Stylist Tip- Check the inseam length before buying. If you’re petite sometimes you can buy styles listed as “cropped” (like the ones I’m wearing with a 29″ inseam) and not have to hem them.
