Living in the Midwest, I wear Chelsea boots a lot! For me, they are a three-season shoe. The material and sole make them perfect for rainy Spring, Crisp fall, and cold (sometimes slick) Winter. I have had this pair for nearly 10 years and reach for them all the time. They are affordable and have held up really well. My favorite feature is that they slip on and off easily.
Let’s take a look at some Chelsea boots outfit ideas. To shop my outfits, click “outfit details” below the image.
How to Wear Chelsea Boots and Jeans
1. Wide Leg Jeans
Chelsea boots are great to wear with wide leg jeans because of the slim shaft. The boot sits nicely under the pant leg without getting bunched. Baggy fit jeans are trending, therefore you can easily achieve a fashion forward look by wearing Chelsea boots with a wide leg fit.Outfit Details
2. Flare Jeans
Flare jeans are back and they look so good with Chelsea boots! I love this combination because flares cover the boot shaft completely and make the outfit appear less casual. With this vibe, you can wear a top that is more dressy. This is my go-to Chelsea boots and jeans outfit when I want to feel more polished yet comfortable.
3. Chelsea Boots and Black Flare Denim
4. Ankle jeans
They key to wearing Chelsea boots and ankle jeans is to keep a slight gap between the boot and jean. For me, personally, this is about 1-1.5″. Most ankle jeans are longs and hit slightly below the top of the boot, which is also flattering.
5. Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans and Chelsea boots is a versatile look. They can be rolled up for warmer temps, with a small gap of skin showing between the jeans and boots. Another way to wear skinnies to to tuck them into tall socks. This is my favorite combination for cold days.Outfit Details
