Gorgeous dark skinnys 15 down from 60, how could I resist? Problem: all my shoes are black or brown. Do I need to go shoe shopping?

Of course you can wear them with black boots confused

Umm yes. I often wear black boots with jeans or navy or burgundy.

Black is fine, in fact best if they are new and dark jeans, as I have had lighter coloured shoes ruined if new dark jeans get wet and the dye runs.

If you have brown boots, wear them. Much nicer with denim than black, surely?

Thanks, it does seem fine in principal but the colours seem too close.

I think this photo shows the true colours ok.

I thought brown would be even worse, shows how much I know.

Well I would wear brown, same as I always wear a brown leather belt with jeans (if they need one), but I actually quite like your boot/jeans combo.

I guess I wouldn't wear black heeled boots with jeans (too "Mum at Next"), but would wear brown/taupe etc.

Why on earth not? Anyone who trots out that appalling old 'mum boots' crap needs a good slap.

Agree with shelagh smile

With those boots, fine.

If not black or brown then what?

Denim goes with everything.

What Shelagh said. Also I think that if the denim is dark then black looks better because your legs will look longer as the colours are closer. Brown is too contrasting for this reason.

I always wear black boots with jeans. I just prefer it personally.
