These versatile shoes are anything but boring. They can take your fit from simple to slay – if you know the secrets to styling them.

There's no room for basic outfits here, sis! Buckle up for a bootie-full journey to help you learn how to wear ankle boots with jeans like a Swank girl.

How to Wear Booties With Jeans

Wearing ankle boots with jeans sounds simple, doesn't it? Well, the wrong pairing can have heads turning for all the wrong reasons.

Jeans and ankle boots are a winning combo – if you've got the right fit. Here are some insider tips to inspire your next outfit with ankle boots.

Cuffed Skinny Jeans

Want legs for days? A pair of ankle boots can complement your booty-hugging jeans to accentuate all your best assets.

For some real Swank style, roll up the hem of your skinny jeans to create a small cuff that ends just above the top of your ankle boots. This peek of ankle adds a little bit of sex appeal and ensures your shoes are on full display.

Tucked-In Skinny Jeans

Don't like the look of a cuff? Tuck your jeans into the top of the boot for a sleek look.

Opt for an ankle boot with a taller or wider shaft, like a Chunky Ankle Boot, that allows for a little more room. Or, make sure you have the skinniest or skinny jeans on to avoid any bunching or covering your booties, which can look sloppy.

Boyfriend Jeans

With a wider leg opening, boyfriend jeans are perfect for a more casual look. The relaxed fit pairs perfectly with combat boots or booties with a block heel to make a statement as you walk down the street.

Roll up the cuffs for a slightly cropped look, allowing your booties to steal the show.

Mom Jeans

These aren't your mother's jeans. The high waist keeps you snatched in all the right places, while the tapered, cropped hem is perfect for showcasing your best booties.

Straight-Leg Jeans

How to wear straight leg jeans with ankle boots may seem like a challenge. The wrong combination can look bulky and anything but stylish.

But we'll let you in on a little secret, sis – it's all about the hem of your jeans. Booties with straight leg jeans are a classic combination. Just make sure that the jeans have a slight crop or hem them to hit just above the boots.

Flared Jeans

Need a pair of jeans to show off your curves? These retro outfit ideas are meant to stand out in the crowd. The boots will be partially concealed under the wide legs of the jeans, giving a hint of their style.

Flare jeans are versatile and sexy – perfect for a day in the office or a night out on the town with the girls.

Bootcut Jeans

Ankle boots can be worn under bootcut jeans for a more laid-back, boho, or street vibe. The boots peek out subtly, and the wider leg of the jeans creates a balanced look.

Bootcut jeans perfectly hug your body to showcase your curves. While your shape takes center stage, the right pair of ankle boots gives you a little more lift to emphasize your snatched silhouette.

High-Waisted Jeans

High-waisted jeans and ankle booties are a match made in heaven. The flattering cut of these jeans hugs your body in all the right places so you look and feel confident no matter where the day takes you. A pair of ankle boots complements the look, giving you a sleek silhouette that we love.

Colored or Patterned Jeans

Want your jeans to be the star of the show? Don't be afraid to experiment with colored or patterned jeans when wearing ankle boots. Your shoes should always complement the look, not compete.

Choose a neutral color or a pair of classic black booties to balance the boldness of your jeans.
