Skinnies + Wedges?

sockswedgesSo Jen and I were having a conversation today. It lasted about four minutes, but the main discussion point was:

Are skinny jeans/pants and wedges at war? Are they supposed to be together, or do they look weird?

In my experience – they look weird. Almost always. The wedge just makes your legs look like 4″x4″ posts with some toes on the bottom (if they’re open toe wedges, of course).

But then, Jen said she bought a pair of low wedges (almost flat) that looked okay with her John Varavatos skinnies… So now I feel like I might be missing out on something great.

What’s your experience?

(PS – Do you love my collage lady with gigantic feet?)

Probably watching Netflix.

    depends on how much wedge and how skinny. also, depends on what the girl is wearing above the waist.

    I have to say if the wedges are low, then yes skinny jeans are fine. But any higher… it looks kind of strange to me.

    I love them and wear them all the time. In fact I think wedges look best with skinny jeans or shorts.

    I have to say, if it’s just a wedge that looks like a regular pump in the front, how would it look different from wearing pumps? I have wedges I’ve worn, up to 3″ with jeans, and they’ve always looked fine… but I also don’t wear ones like your lady is wearing either…

    I looooove pairing skinny jeans with wedges. I absolutely do. I’m short, and I feel it makes me look somehow taller. I think it’s fun for summer!
