Celeb-Inspired Trends: What Shoes to Wear With Denim

Looking for a way to dress up your denim?

When the temps begin to drop, one of my go-to outfits includes a cute cardigan or blouse and a fresh pair of denim like cozy boyfriend jeans or stylish skinnies. And to many fashionista’s delight, flare jeans are BACK for Fall 2015 – how great is that?!

So what kind of shoes do you choose if you want to take your blues from day to night? Just turn to A-list celebs like Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Alba for a little fashion inspiration! 🙂

Boyfriend/Skinny Jeans

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon was spotted cruising around LA recently, rocking a stylish pair of skinny jeans and a flowy white blouse. She smartly accessorized with a chic hat and shades – and could’ve easily wore an everyday gladiator sandal or flat to keep it casual. What I love about Witherspoon’s look though, is that it could take her into the evening. The pointed-toe pump she wore adds a touch of upscale elegance and creates the perfect fashion balance. I could totally see this look going from a day of shopping to a night out. Love!

Circus by Sam Edelman Mellie (Women’s)


Similar to Witherspoon’s style, this pointed-toe pump from Sam Edelman brings a bit of edge and elegance to your fave jeans. And it has a little something special – a splash of shiny studs and curvy open shank for extra drama.

Flare Jeans

Jessica Alba

Have you run out to get a great new pair of flare jeans? Wondering what shoes to wear with ’em? On September 26th, Jessica Alba was seen out and about with husband Cash Warren, rocking the trend to perfection. She chose the true boho route, opting for a flowing blouse and studded platform sandal. I could also see a sandal like hers with a darker wash denim, and silky top tucked in to dress it up even more.

I love the shoe Alba chose, and luckily, you can still get a lot of mileage out of your platform sandals before the snow starts to fly.

Sbicca Tomlin (Women’s)


Stylish stitching. Antique-finish studs. Fashionable platform heel. What more could you ask for in a shoe? And how awesome would the Tomlin look with flare jeans?!
