Wedding Shoes with Jeans
Want that effortlessly chic look? The denim-and-wedding-heel combo is the perfect duo for you.
We got 99 problems but having enough shoes to match jeans ain’t one of them. Jeans can go with any heels, especially your wedding shoes, but here are a few tips
- Remember to show off your ankles. It gives the illusion of height and is totally on trend at the moment. You may need to roll up your jeans to pull off this style.
- If you want to make your legs look longer, your blush or nude wedding shoes will be perfect. Or stick to one color - white jeans with your white wedding shoes can help elongate your silhouette. You can make this look more casual by wearing with a simple black t-shirt.
- Finally, do not be afraid to experiment. Do not worry, all different styles of jeans will be perfect with your wedding shoes.
