Chunky rubber sole, block heel, metal hooks, beige nubuck leather spliced with smooth black trim? OMG! I finally found ankle boots that go well with all the jeans. Seriously! From the light blue straight jeans, dark blue mom jeans and even black ripped skinny jeans! Not mentioning how comfortable and fashionable these hiking booties are. No wonders why hiking boots just got their own emoji recently. Yes, it’s the hiking-inspired boots we are talking about this time. And here is how to style hiking boots with skinny jeans.
Guess what? The skinny jeans are back! If you like it or not, everyone chic is wearing skinny jeans this winter again. And no, we are not bringing the skinny jeans back just because they are great for ice skating, but because of the newest ankle boots.
IT BOOTS OF WINTER 2018 2019 ARE MADE FOR HIKING. IN STORES
Yes, there are new boots in the town. And they go so well with the skinny jeans. Well, actually they are not that new anymore. Hiking boots were all over the Paris, London, Milan and New York months ago already. I even wrote about this new trend – the gorpcore, hiking-inspired fashion trend, remember? Over here in case, you forgot.
Anyway, winter 2018 is the season of this fashion power couple. The skinny jeans and hiking boots. Or better say hiking-inspired boots as we all know we couldn’t reach any top of the hill in these platform ankle boots.
Still, who cares? As long as we can climb to the top floor of our favourite department stores, Galeries Lafayette and Le Bon Marché to see Paris from the above and don’t slip or stumble on our way to the top, we are good to go.
Ha, see me, talking about Paris when I’m actually walking in the rain mixed with snow in Ljubljana.
Nevertheless, the point is that these hiking-inspired ankle boots will take you far. Not only regarding the distance but fashion sense as well. I repeat, the hiking boots, pardon, hiking-inspired boots, are one of 3 most fashionable boots of winter 2018 2019. Ps. Go here to see the rest of 2019 fashionable winter boots.
HOW TO WEAR HIKING BOOTS
So, how to wear hiking boots this winter then? Apart from the pencil skirt and bodycon cocktail dress with whatever you want. Just not wherever you want. I hate to write this, but unless you work in fashion, hiking boots are, same as the skinny jeans, not your 9-5 weekday shoes if you work in the office and you must dress up to the dressing code.
Even though building your career seems like climbing to the top of the mountain most of the time, these hiking boots won’t take you to this top. Nor as said before, actual top of the mountain. But they are, however, good rain and snow boots. Thanks to the chunky rubber sole that prevents you from slipping or getting wet.
And great ankle boots for walking long distances around the town, or countryside. You can’t even imagine how comfortable these hiking boots from See by Chloé (shop here) are. Truth to be told these hiking-inspired boots are more comfortable than my real hiking boots. Those that are actually meant for hiking.
Anyhow, as said you can wear your hiking boots, hiking-inspired boots with almost everything. Even with the skinny jeans. Yes, your favourite type of jeans that you otherwise can’t wear with any other shoes but sneakers and ballerina flats. And in some cases over the knee boots. But not slouchy, as they don’t really look that good with the skinny jeans. Plus the colour of the skinny jeans and OTK boots must match.
HIKING BOOTS AND SKINNY JEANS
Anyway, there is no such thing as colour mismatching when it comes to the hiking boots and skinny jeans this season. Or any other jeans, as a matter of fact. You can take any type and colour of jeans and wear them with these hiking boots as it was a match made in fashion editorial.
In fact, styling hiking boots with skinny jeans is so simple you don’t even need a fashion cheat sheet this time. Still, adding it anyway since I know how much you like to pin and save my fashion cheat sheets.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
So here they are, the fashion cheat sheets for styling hiking boots with skinny jeans for winter 2019. I added two since I’m wearing my hiking boots and skinny jeans in two different weather conditions. The first one is for spring 2019 and the second is for rainy winter days.
Be sure to share these fashion cheat sheets with your friend who walks around in ballerina flats all winter long just because she has no other shoes to wear with her skinny jeans.
Ps. The fastest way to shop my See by Chloé hiking boots and everything else that I’m wearing is to simply click inside those pink frames that will pop up once you touch the fashion cheat sheets. Yet, don’t forget to check the widget below to find all the items I’m wearing. Including the makeup, umbrella and gloves.
As mentioned earlier, I’m wearing my new See by Chloé hiking boots. I got them over here, but you can also get my See by Chloé hiking-inspired boots here and here (best for the US). Check all sites as these booties will go out of stock faster than you can climb on the top floor of your favourite store.
By the way, if the heels of my ankle boots seem too high for you, there are these hiking-inspired boots from See by Chloé with lower heels too (check them here). They actually look even prettier than mine since they come with the shearling trim. Oh, I want those too. Luckily, they are 30% off now! You know, the winter sale? Ps. Check this list to find the code you might need to get these boots (and the ones I’m wearing) on sale.
Furthermore, if you want no heel at all, there are also these See by Chloé hiking boots over here (in dark brown) in here (in the same colour as mine).
These skinny jeans that I’m wearing here are from Diesel (shop here). Which, are with no doubt, the best skinny jeans ever. They are so stretchy and comfortable that feel like yoga pants. I guess these skinny jeans were made for hiking.
And what is even better, they stay the same after years of wearing and washing. Yes, I wash my jeans on repeat. Like for the last 3 or 4 years. I don’t know exactly when I got them. But I know it has been more than 3 years ago. And they still look and feel the same.
If you ask me, a good pair of jeans should stay soft and look same on you no matter how often you wash and wear them. Anyway, as said, these ripped black jeans come from Diesel. You can shop them here.
Ps. If you like everything about my Diesel skinny jeans but the holes, go and check these other black Diesel skinny jeans here.

Because you know I love them million. Ps. Go here to see some other ways how to wear both for the rain this winter.
ACCESSORIES AND MAKEUP
Lastly the gloves and makeup. As you can see, I’m wearing two different gloves this time. The black gloves are from Burberry (shop here). You can get orange gloves (here) or slightly more brown over here.
