While you may love your trusty Western boots, they don’t always look good with every style of denim. Instead of getting frustrated while trying on pair after pair of jeans until you find the ones that work, use this handy guide from Love Those Boots — it will make pairing boots with jeans a breeze!

Classic Cowboy Boots
For your classic, mid-calf cowboy boots, you’ll want to wear either a simple, straight-leg skinny jean that you can tuck right inside. Darker jeans look better with just about any type of boot, while lighter wash jeans look great with a contrasting boot in a darker leather. If you’re not a fan of skinny jeans, you can also wear boot-cut jeans that hide the upper portion of your boot (hence the clever name). 

Fashion Boots 
If you love the modern look of glam Western boots, you’ll want to pair them with a sleek, simple pair of straight-leg jeans. Keeping things simple on top means that you can go wild on the bottom, including wearing boots with rhinestones, colored leather and even layers of fringe.

Roper Boots 
For ladies who like the casual look of low roper boots, try a relaxed or boot cut jean that fits right over the bulky boot. This simple shoe style looks good with just about everything, as it has a simple, no-nonsense shape and classic brown or black leather exterior.

Low, modern booties are some of the most in-demand shoe styles today, and they look good with almost any jean style. If you’re going for a look that’s modern and sexy, try pairing your favorite booties with cropped skinny jeans; for a look that’s laid-back and casual, wear them with your favorite boyfriend jeans in a distressed or lighter wash.
