You finally get to enjoy the fresh breeze of spring and with that comes the yearly wardrobe overhaul. Clean your closet out of those bulky jackets and chunky scarves and jump back in the world of soft summer dresses and floaty tops.

Skinny jeans do the most work during these transitional periods, since a) they can be practically worn with just about anything and b) they provide just the right amount of cozy vibes mixed with their quintessential classic edge, of course!

The best shoes to wear with skinny jeans during spring has to be sneakers! They will not only protect you from the sludge of the changing season- no one wants to ruin that delicious pedicure but also perfectly embodies the laid back trend that everyone is trying to emulate.

If you are looking to add length (which I always am) then a somewhat controversial yet loved ( by me) addition would be wedge sneakers. The lines created by these babies help add that extra oomph to your skinny jeans without overdoing it and is the perfect in-between shoe for this season.

Try going for a cropped pair of skinny jeans during Fall time or even a straight leg version. The more professional cut of straight leg jeans will perfectly balance out the more casual edge of the sneakers and will keep you looking at the top of your style game.

Outfit Idea: Try these pristine white sneakers with lightly distressed skinny denim jeans, pair with a floral spaghetti strap top and an oversize jacket to complete the look. Add classic accessories such as a chunky watch, dainty earrings, and layered necklaces to complete the look.

Bonus points if you pick a denim oversized jacket to match your skinny jeans since denim on denim in so HAWT right now!

You can try substituting your skinny jeans for jeggings. Jeggings are usually made of soft spandex and made to look like jeans, some even come with handy pockets and other detailing to truly create an impressive combination.

This best of both worlds item is versatile in wear as well as being extremely comfortable. What is not to love here?

You can style your jeggings just like regular jeans, but just to throw a little caution your way, make sure that your top is long enough to cover your bum since a lot of jeggings can cling to the skin. Some cheaply made versions can even be SEE THROUGH!

If you want to experiment with one of the hottest trends right now aka athleisure then head straight to the sneaker aisle. Sneakers are back with a vengeance and now can even be found with girly ruffles to edgy studs.

Mix sneakers with high waisted skinny jeans and an easy crop top to get the perfect essence of summer trends while still feeling laid back.

A great way to dress up your skinny jeans in summer would be to throw on a pair of statement heels. Experiment with color and even bolder shapes since the classic nature of the skinny jeans will tone down whatever you decide to wear.

I personally recommend going for a low block heel because not only are they super trendy right now but also easy to wear and won’t leave your feet tortured by the end of the day.

Outfit Idea: With long sweaty summers in mind, pick breathable denim jeans, paying close attention to the material. Once you have the right jeans, build your outfit by adding on these statement Anna Sui mules, which embody everything that is a must have for this season. Let the shoes do the talking and pair with a basic white tee.

For a more dressed up option, change up the mules for these tropical printed Nine West beauties.
