Fall Denim, Fall Shoes


The eternal question is going to be finally answered… what shoes do I wear with my denim? Are flats flattering with a fringe hem? Does an ankle boot look better with skinnies or culottes? Should I try a bootie under a wide leg or straight leg? Relax, its fall denim, fall shoes by espy and we’re throwing the rules out the window. It’s time to go bold by bringing together your most eccentric jeans and a killer pair of boots.

I had this boyfriend once…


Ah yes, the boyfriend jean. Cozy, comfortable, and lazy, just like the real thing. Ok, we’re kidding, and we’ll even admit the timeless pairing of sneakers and your boyfriend jeans is the perfect fashion remedy for most casual occasions. But have you considered breaking away the norm? Step away from your traditional inner thoughts of wearing sneakers with your boyfriend’s and mix it up a little with some statement boots.

Love to cuff ’em? So do we. Just because you’re wearing boots with your boyfriends doesn’t mean you have to hide your denim under all that leather. Take facets of when you’re wearing your boyfriends with sneakers and transfer that over to when you’re wearing boots. Let the world see those amazing shoes! Plus it doesn’t hurt to have a little protection around the ankles when the temperature starts to drop and the snow level starts to rise.






Skinnies and flats? Nah…


Time to hit one of the fall seasons on-point trends: Victorian-inspired footwear textures and fabrics like brocade and velvet. Skinny jeans are a forever staple so consider it an opportunity to swap out your luxe flats with your skinnies for a laced ankle boot to change things up a bit.






You’re rugged, you’re edgy, you’re tough! That’s why when you plan on wearing a chunkier, more robust shoe, the denim you pair it with should have the same attributes. Distressed and destroyed denim to the rescue.






2017 BoHo Style


Flared denim or culottes need a little-added height to properly visually elongate your legs. How do you do that? Pair your culottes with a stiletto heel bootie or a chunky heel boot and embrace your inner boho chic… or in this case your inner Mary Poppins.

Let’s Go Riding


A great pair of riding boots are timeless and look great paired with the right denim. So what’s the right denim? As per usual black and brown are the most popular colors when it comes to the boots, which means your jeans can range from white to black and everything in between! We saved the easiest pairing for last…

Depending on your personal style the boots you pair with your denim is up to you! Make your own rules and experiment a little! That being said, don’t be afraid to step a little outside your comfort zone and try something new. Nothing compares to fearless fashion confidence at the end of the day.
