Jeans and sneakers – seem simple, right? Jeans with running shoes or sneakers usually fit very well, however there is more to it than you may think. Of course you can choose to wear any sneakers with any color jeans, but the question is – are you going to look good in them? My guess is that most of the time the answer will be “no.” So how to wear jeans with sneakers effectively?
First, let’s start with socks. If you are wearing skinny jeans or just jeans that are a bit shorter at the end, make sure you don’t have any funny color socks as it will be seen from a mile away! The best way to deal with this is to have socks that match color with your jeans – this way the socks will blend in nicely with jeans. Another option is to wear no-show socks, as then your skin can be seen a bit when you are sitting down.
Okay, now that we got that out of the way, we are going to move to the actual jeans. Most important thing here – jeans have to fit you! If you want to look good in jeans with running shoes or your casual sneakers, make sure to have the right fit. I have seen a lot of guys who pick size for themselves and think that it fits. If you want to look good in jeans and sneakers, make sure to choose jeans that are correct fit. If not, then there is always a tailor that can help you.
First mistake when wearing jeans with sneakers is – bootcut jeans. I think the name is self-explanatory. Bootcut jeans are designed to be worn with boots. Avoid these at all cost when wearing sneakers. Try to go with straight-leg jeans instead. However, if the jeans are a bit too long, there is always an option of pinrolling.
If you get all these points right – you are ready to hit the streets with the full boost of confidence that you look splendid!
