Is it OK to wear heels with jeans?

You can definitely wear jeans with heels. This classic pairing has a chic and modern appeal, and heels can easily transform the look of jeans from casual to dressy

low slingback heels

We love this elevated take on an all-denim look. The oversized denim jacket is so chic paired with ripped black jeans. This is a perfect look to wear in the spring.

Even though denim has a casual vibe, this outfit is expertly styled to look put-together. Black jeans tend to have more of an upscale feel, and we love how the low slingback heels add a feminine vibe. The button-up also adds a classy feel to the look, although you can use a plain white tee for a similar look. 

Add a handbag and sunglasses, and you’ll have a stylish jeans and heels combo to wear out for your next lunch date. 

strappy summer sandals

This look shows how easily dainty heeled sandals go with a pair of light blue jeans. The strappy sandals, straw tote, and cherry print Reformation tank create a cute and feminine outfit we would wear any summer day. 

This look would be perfect for strolling the farmer’s market or a relaxed summer date night. Add a pair of Rayban’s and you’ll be ready for wherever the day takes you!

Which heels are best for jeans?

You can wear any style of heels with jeans; it all depends on the aesthetic you’re going for. Go for classic pumps for a timeless look, try strappy heeled sandals to add a sexy and playful vibe, or opt for kitten heels or slingbacks for an elegant touch. 

You can also style a jeans and heels outfit based on the season you’re in. Heeled sandals and strappy pumps are perfect for a spring or summer look, and heeled ankle boots are a go-to piece to wear while it’s cold outside.

go for glove boots

get the look:

Glove boots, also known as sock boots, are the perfect choice for a jeans and heels pairing in the fall or winter. Because they hug the ankle and shin, the boots won’t bunch up under the hem of your jeans. So, you can easily wear a full-length jean or cropped style and look polished. 

In this outfit, blue jeans are the perfect choice to combine with the other neutral pieces. The black turtleneck and long houndstooth coat add an elegant feel and will definitely keep you warm while out and about in the cooler months.

straight-leg + ankle boots

This cozy outfit is another great winter look. The oversized wool coat and straight jeans give off a comfy casual vibe and pair perfectly with the brown-heeled ankle boots.

When pairing heeled boots and jeans, opt for a pair of jeans that have a wide enough leg opening so the hem doesn’t get caught up with the shaft of the boots. Another way to pair heeled boots with jeans is by wearing knee-high boots over skinny jeans. 

Wear this fashionable look to grab a coffee and browse in your favorite shops. You can go for black jeans if you want an all-neutral look, or stick with classic blue denim.

classic cap-toe heels

get the look:

Cap-toe heels instantly elevate jeans creating a classy look for work or for an intimate gathering with friends and family. Wear them with a puffed sleeve button-up shirt for a stylish and feminine touch.

Go with light blue jeans for a spring-ready look (you could easily go with dark denim too). Finish off your outfit with your fave jewelry, and grab a neutral handbag for balance. 

the sandwich effect

We are in love with this oversized leather bomber jacket, and it looks so stunning with the black slingback heels. Pairing the same color shoes with top gives “the sandwich effect” and creates balance in any outfit.

The darker-wash blue jeans keep the outfit looking polished and refined making them the perfect choice with the slingback heels. 

This lovely outfit is a perfect pick to wear in the spring or fall. Rock this style while grabbing dinner and drinks with the girls or during date night with your SO.

mary-jane mules

Give us all the Mary Janes.

You know what they say – “there’s beauty in simplicity”, Mary Janes have made a big comeback and we love their simple, polished appeal. This minimal look is perfect for days when you want an outfit that’s easy to put together but still want to look chic.

The jeans and cable sweater are great for early spring days, and the Mary Jane heeled mules are the perfect elegant addition. The ankle-length of these jeans are perfect for showing off the heels, but keeping the look refined at the same time.

The jeans and ivory tank give this outfit a relaxed and effortless look, while the black heels and oversized transform the look into something totally sophisticated. Elevate this outfit further by adding a black belt to accentuate your waist. 

Jeans and Heels Party Outfit Looks

Jeans and heels are a great combo for a party look, so we’ve included some ideas to inspire stunning outfits you can wear to your next gathering.

Combine distressed mom jeans with block heeled sandals for a vibrant look perfect for a BBQ or summer party. These jeans have a trendy and youthful look, and the strappy heels dress the outfit up.

We also love the hot pink top as a bold addition to this warm-weather outfit, although you can opt for other summer shades, like lilac or soft green. Complete this look with a chic shoulder bag and sunglasses for a stylish outfit you’ll want to wear again and again.

Nude heels have the magical ability to lengthen the look of your legs and always look excellent paired with lighter-wash denim. You can never go wrong with this combo in the spring or summer.

Black jeans and classic black patent leather pumps are an edgy combination that we can’t get enough of. This stunning look is perfect to wear to a concert or a night on the town with your friends. 

The straight-leg jeans and cropped graphic tee are trendy and casual, but the pointed toe heels and gorgeous green handbag add a chic touch. We love the pop of deep green from the purse, although you can use brightly colored heels to get the same aesthetic.

Do heels go with skinny jeans?

Yes, heels look amazing with skinny jeans! This stylish combo will elongate your legs and is a simple way to upgrade a casual jeans look. You can also wear tall knee-high boots, or over-the-knee boots with skinny jeans for a cute look in the fall or winter.
