3. What Shoes to Wear with Your Mom Jeans

Mom jeans are extra flattering, and we think that’s why they’re such a wardrobe staple. They look great worn with a bodysuit or blazer, and their straight-leg cut looks great in a cropped or turned-up style.

Zoe Kravitz rocks her mom jeans perfectly, preferring a pair of cropped jeans with delicate high heels and a fitted top to highlight her silhouette without looking overdressed.

Ripped mom jeans in a light wash are the dream for relaxed summer days. Match them with a laid back T-shirt, hoop earrings and flatforms to keep it casual. Despite the name, your mum probably wouldn’t wear them like this…

Trainers work really well with mom jeans, as demonstrated by none other than Kendall Jenner. Known for her off-duty style, Kendall pairs her jeans with a cute graphic tee, a ’90s-inspired shoulder bag and a pair of black trainers.

Grab some flattering, high-waisted Mom jeans to pair with your trainers, flatforms or high heels.

4. What Shoes to Wear with Your Skinny Jeans

Although flares and loose-fit jeans have taken centre-stage for a while, skinny jeans haven’t gone anywhere. Everyone has a pair of these in their wardrobe for a reason: their fit is flattering for all.

Skinny jeans are ideal for tucking into a pair of knee-high boots, like Alessandra Ambrosio. Flats or high heel boots work just as well for shopping, brunch or hitting the park for a picnic.
