Having spent most of my life on converse I have no idea of the rules with boots.

Are brown boots ok with black jeans?

I think it depends on the exact brown of the boots, and the exact black of the jeans. Links to both?

I say it is fine, unless there are too many other colours going on.

I think it is perfectly okay as long as both are saturated colours rather than faded. Tan, chocolate and mid-brown all work fine with a solid black.

I can't link on my phone!

You can wear whatever you like but I think black jeans look best with black boots.

I like black jeans with a light or dark tan boot, but brown - I'm not too sure! I'd be more likely to wear brown with a colour like teal or brick red. Black boots with black jeans looks much smarter.

I think both fine in any combination,
It's blue jeans and black boots that's dodgy, unless navy.

So what colour should be worn with blue jeans?

browns, greys, greens or blues...neutral / stone type color. rust/reds.
anything but black...

disclaimer this is just my opinion!

I pretty much always wear black boots with jeans. I prefer them to brown with blue jeans.

I think it depends upon the boots, the jeans and the outfit as a whole. I wear brown boots with black skinnies sometimes and an animal print scarf and all is good. But if I had some other string colours going on then I would stick with black boots.

I personally don't do black boots with jeans as it makes me feel like a copper. Nothing wrong with that per se but not the look I'm generally after! wink

Coppers don't wear jeans where I live! They wear all black.
