There are two types of people when it comes to getting dressed: those who create an outfit around a pair of shoes and those who throw on shoes right before walking out the door. I for sure fall into the first group, with a dressing behaviour highly focused on my shoe selection. That’s not to say there aren’t days when I flip to the other side of the spectrum—every rule has its exceptions. It’s the reason I’m typically drawn to footwear that I want to show off, truly covetable styles that will make any outfit the best it can possibly be. Of course, comfort and versatility are always key.
Jeans are practically my second skin — and so here I bring you the new styles of flat shoes that look best with a pair of skinny jeans. Do your standard ballet flats need a refresh? I have just the update for you. Looking to swap your slides for something that feels a little more elevated? Everything you need is below, right at your shopping fingertips. The best part, though? A dependable rotation of flats and skinny jeans means you don’t have to spend as much time thinking about your shoes as I do. Keep scrolling to discover five outfit-making flats.
