What shoes to wear with your jeans this Autumn Winter

River Island's guide to shoes when wearing jeans.

There’s a strong chance that you’ll live in jeans around the clock. This is denim after all, and it’s made to be versatile, durable, and effortless for near enough every occasion. Whether it's classic blue, black or light washed denim you prefer, there's a strong chance pieces in your wardrobe work well with them all. However, one area that you might not be so clued up on is the denim footwear department. 


Here we break down the exact shoes to wear with every pair of River Island jeans, from a classic skinny to a retro flare or mom.


Skinny + Strappy Heel

Legs for days? We’re just getting started. Our classic skinnies sculpt the leg and finish above the ankle for the ultimate elongating fit. Add a pair of stilettos and you’ll be ready for the runway



Sculpt + Mule

When you’re putting all that effort into sculpting your behind, there’s no harm in lifting yourself in other areas too. Enter, the mule - a low heel to give your legs an extra elongating boost, to support all the good work your jeans are already doing around your derriere.

Flare + Pointed Heels Boot

Flares and heels are a dream duo if you’re hoping to lengthen your legs. A solid block heel can also provide that little extra bit of extra height - just make it patent to up that 70s vibe.

Mom + Western

Not all cropped jeans can carry it off, but there’s something so undeniably chic about a wide retro fit with an unexpected boot choice. We love a pointed western with an acid wash Mom jean for the ultimate rock’n’roll feel.

Slim + Loafer

Ultra laidback Slims need a relaxed flat to match - so why not give loafers a try? Perfectly cropped to show off your shoes, we’re styling ours with socks for a 90’s styling hack that feels so now.

Molly + Chunky Trainers

We’re all about the contrast, and in our opinion there’s nothing that showcases a pair of box-fresh new kicks like an ultra-skinny jegging. Add yourself a slouchy oversized sweater while you’re at it.
