Top 20 Shoes to Wear with Different Kinds of Pants

Shoes to Wear with Different Pants. Pants are an amazing piece of clothing simply because of the endless possibilities that they give you of creating new looks. You can wear the same pair of pants to school, to work or even to a party simply by dressing it up or down. This is why every girl loves to wear pants. But you can’t just wear your pants with any shoes of your choice, for example, a wide-legged pant would not work well with pointy flats.

So today we’ll be sharing some of the best looks that fashion bloggers have created with pants, along with details on every piece of clothing to go with those pants, of course with special focus on shoes.

How to Choose Footwear with Pants

There’s never any right or wrong with fashion, you can wear anything you like as long as you’re comfortable with it. But who doesn’t love some freestyle advise! Let’s start with some basic tips:

  • If you’re wearing any type of cropped pants, go for high vamp or lengthening shoes like booties or loafers.
  • When wearing menswear-inspired pants like cargo pants, go for feminine shoes. And vice versa, which means that if you’re wearing menswear-inspired shoes like oxfords, a more feminine outfit should be preferred.
  • With skinny pants, choose well-fitted shoes like strappy sandals.
  • Remember that the suggestions given below are just tips on what shoes look best with the different types of pants, in our opinion, so don’t be afraid to try different combinations or any other shoes that you feel would work.

Now here are the most gorgeous looks that we found to help you decide what shoes you should wear with pants.

↓ 20 – White Pants

The color white has been trending so much lately that it’s impossible to not own white pants. The best thing about these pants is how versatile they are as it’s so easy to pair them with different shoes and tops. Especially if you’re traveling, taking white pants with you will be life-saving as you can create many different looks with them, without carrying a lot of different outfits in your luggage. Anyways, when it comes to shoes, we highly recommend pairing these pants with brown mules. If you’re a fan of white pants, you might want to check out our earlier post on How to Wear White Wide Leg Pants.

↓ 19 – With Khaki Pants

Khaki pants are a wardrobe essential that every girl needs. And while most of us choose to wear them with neutral or nude-colored shoes, we’re absolutely digging this idea of wearing them with leopard print shoes. Here are some more awesome Women Khaki Pant Outfits.

↓ 18 – With Bright Colored Pants

If you’re wearing pants in any bold color like yellow, your shoes need to be minimalist no matter what type you go for. For example, you can choose simple white or nude heels to go with such pants or even some minimalist sandals if you don’t feel like wearing heels. Alternatively, you can also go for animal printed shoes if you feel like being a little extra.

↓ 17 – With Sailor Pants

Sailor pants traditionally had a wider silhouette but these days you can easily find them in skinny fitting too. Their defining feature, however, is the nautical buttons at both sides. I feel like they make the ideal Monday morning outfits when you don’t have too much energy to put in your dressing. They look super cute with simple, flat pumps, especially if you can get your hands on one that matches your shirt.

↓ 16 – With Palazzo Pants

Who doesn’t love wearing palazzos? They’re especially popular in Summers because of how breathable they are. You could wear them with flip flops if they’re the right length but if they’re a bit long, you need to go for heels. Espadrille heels are a great choice. Do have a look at these Trendy ways to Wear Palazzo Pants with other Outfits.

You can also go with any other chunky shoes, the reason being that palazzos are a type of voluminous or large pants and sleek shoes won’t really look as good with them. On the other hand, when you’re wearing skinny pants or straight-legged pants, feel free to wear slim and refined shoes like heels or ballet flats.

↓ 15 – With Yoga Pants

We all love yoga pants because of how comfortable they are but these days you have such a huge variety of yoga pants available that look so cute that you feel like wearing them all day, every day. For casual wear, they look best with simple flip flops.

↓ 14 – Sweatpants

Gone are the days when sweatpants were just limited to home-wear. If you’re wearing sweatpants for casual wear, you can opt for sneakers. And if you’re wearing them to work, you can opt for slip-on loafers as well as mules.

↓ 13 – With Wide-Legged Pants

In my opinion, flat shoes look best with wide-legged pants since they already elongate your legs so you don’t really need heels (unless you want to, since there are no rules when it comes to fashion). If you’re going for a casual look, you can opt for some comfy flip-flops or sandals and for a more semi-formal/formal vibe, you can choose loafers or mules.

↓ 12 – With Cargo Pants

When wearing cargo or boyfriend pants, choose shoes that are more feminine to balance out the whole look. For example, go for pink or yellow sandals, or any other color that complements your top.

↓ 11 – With Bootcut Pants

With bootcut pants, we highly recommend two types of shoes. The most obvious choice, of course, is ankle boots, but if you’re not in the mood for boots or it just isn’t the right season for them, then the next option in your list should be pointy pumps. It’s up to you if you would want to go for flat pump shoes or pointed pump heels, but the way the pointed pumps subtly peep from under the bootcut pumps just looks too good in my opinion.
