Worn jeans this week? Probably, yes. Jeans have been a staple for decades and they’re not losing appeal any time soon. Which is why it’s surprising that one of the biggest questions posed online every month is…  “What shoes do I wear with jeans?”

As jeans are oh-so-versatile, there’s simply too many options out there to choose from! That’s why we’ve made things that little bit easier with our top hemline and heel picks…

White ‘Frankie’ Broderie Ankle Grazer Jeans £26, Lilac ‘Essie’ 80s Slingback Court Shoes £25

Broderie was seen all across the SS18 runways and has now has taken pride of place in our denim wardrobe. And likewise we’ve been all over ‘80s-inspired footwear, which has been seen on everyone in-the-know. They may seem like worlds apart, but these two trends can work together – the slingback’s striking shape contrasts wonderfully against the jeans’s delicate hemline. Keep this duo nice and summery with a pastel palette.

Want to jazz up your jeans for the new season? A coloured jean is the perfect way to mix up your denim collection, however they can be trickier to style than those faithful blue options… Luckily the mule is still high on our footwear radar and a neutral-coloured pair can be styled with every (yes, every!) possible colour. Take the jeans into the night and opt for yours with embellished detail.

Cropped Jeans & Nude Heels

Jeans perhaps aren’t the first choice for hot-weather dressing, but a cropped pair is perfect for sunnier days. Nude heels are everyone’s go-to shoe and here’s no exception. Together with the exposed ankle, this flattering pairing will make your legs look longer and leaner – and who doesn’t want that? Choose heeled sandals with a bow back for a welcome dose of prettiness.
