Boyfriend jeans are that cool and reliable friend you can do anything with. Grabbing drinks after work? They’ll be there. Running errands on the weekend? They’ve got you. Taking the kids to the park? Name the time and place. No matter what you’re doing, your boyfriend jeans will always rise to the occasion—so long as you partner them with the right shoe. Wear a polished shoe to dress them up, or slip into something casual to dress them down. Here’s all you need to know about what shoes to wear.

Dress up Your Boyfriend Jeans with Flats
Balance the looser silhouette of your boyfriend jeans with polished pointed-toe flats in a vibrant hue. Take this look to work with classic layers such as a pullover or a knit blazer (or both!), and finish with a sleek crossbody bag.
Stylist Tip: Wearing boyfriend jeans to your 9-to-5? Infuse your outfit with intentionality, and keep the whole look playful with fun prints.
Dress up Your Boyfriend Jeans with Heels
You knew this was coming, right? Elevate your boyfriend jeans with any type of heel—think stiletto, kitten, slingback or chunky. You have the full spectrum of dressiness here, ranging from a carefree block-heeled sandal to an elegant sky-high pump. Complete the look with an of-the-moment tasseled blouse.
Dress Your Boyfriend Jeans up or down with Booties
Yes, you read that right. It all depends on the bootie, of course. Headed to a party but it’s chilly outside? Switch your usual pumps for stiletto booties. For more casual affairs, keep it simple in flat, low-heeled or block-heeled booties (which just so happen to be ultra daring, too). Top off your outfit with a lace cami or a simple button-down, and tie your whole look together with an edgy jacket.
Dress down Your Boyfriend Jeans with Sneakers
When in doubt, you can always default to a trusty sneaker. This is a safe choice for your laid-back combos, or even if you’re wearing something nicer up top but want to break the balance and create more contrast. Plus, sneakers are a no-brainer if you’re looking at an active day. Pair this with a knotted knit top or with a delicate sweater and add a streamlined layer.
