i.e not quite skinny but slim leg or maybe straight leg what do you put on your feet ? or should i not even go there and wear skinnies ?

i am always fine with the top half, tops , blouses etc but bottom half pfff!

ballet flats or sandals in the summer, ten they get stuck in a cupboard for the winter whilst I wonder how does everyone else wear theirs!

I suspect everyone else is wearing converse, but I feel like a duck waddling walking in them!

Converse or biker boots.

RedBlanket Thu 04-Oct-12 22:41:47

Ballets or converse.
I'm considering brogues this year as well.

I wear wedge heeled boots with mine but I'm no style icon grin

Cremolafoam Thu 04-Oct-12 22:55:19

Biker boots or ballet pumps

Zwitterion Thu 04-Oct-12 22:56:45

Bikers or daps (supergas at the mo)

Mid-heel platfrom clogs or boots e.g Dr Martens Diva.

I adore these but the price is ridiculous, they'd look good with straights.

Glad you posted on this one, I was facing the same dilemma - I bought some slim legs jeans in the summer and have been wearing trainers in the summer (sorry not very fashion conscious here) but tried my ankle boots on in the week with them and you can tell I'm wearing them as you can see the top part agains the fabric.

Think I need to go out and buy some converse or a different pair of boots (which I was actually thinking about anyway!).

I wear either biker boots, Toms or Super Ga's/Converse.

Madlizzy Fri 05-Oct-12 12:34:08

Brogues, converse or Doc Marten boots or shoes.

I also wondered this - if I wear ankle boots, the jeans are too baggy to tuck in, so I then look mumsy I think.

I generally wear either ballet pumps, or some converse or some ash high tops I've got. But this morning I still thought it looked rubbish, so swapped back into skinnies.

i suspect slim or straight jeans just aren't on the fashionistas' radar atm.

Converse or I find if I buy straight legs too short then they are fine tucked into boots.

Bunbaker Fri 05-Oct-12 14:45:45

Stupid question, but do you tuck the jeans in or wear your biker boots under the jeans?

cocolepew Fri 05-Oct-12 15:07:51

I wear then under, I sometimes turn my jeans up a bit. Dick Emery is my fashion icon obviously grin

DonaAna Fri 05-Oct-12 15:19:41

I wear my straight-leg jeans with desert wedges and ankle boots (cowboy heel) - I prefer not to tuck the jeans in, roll them up if necessary.

Straight-legs also look good with loafers and chelsea boots.

MrsSnow Fri 05-Oct-12 15:44:27

Ankle boots
Converse style shoes

thriftychic Fri 05-Oct-12 16:27:06

thanks , dont think i will be wearing converse , too much rain . maybe bikers

QueenCadbury Fri 05-Oct-12 17:50:35

You can get leather converse

runnervt Fri 05-Oct-12 20:42:33

I'm having a similar dilemma at the moment. I've just bought these thinking my skinnies would sit nicely inside but they're a bit too wide at the ankle. Just debating whether bunched up or turned up would be better. Anyone here have any thoughts?
In summer I wear Converse or super Ga - no dilemmas there!

Iatemyskinnyperson Fri 05-Oct-12 22:31:05

Wedge desert boots

BerthaKitt Fri 05-Oct-12 22:38:20

Just to interrupt here, as this is one of my major fashion concerns, having no instinctive sense of style whatsoever - if you wear loafers or brogues or some other non-ballet flat shoe that shows the top of your foot or ankle, do you wear socks? Or do I have to have bare feet all winter?
