Q. I bought some printed jeans, but I’m not sure how to style them. What sort of top should I wear with them and what shoes (I need something flat that will hold my foot in place)? Thank you for your help.
A. Printed jeans are far more wearable than you think. I particularly love the Gap pair that you’ve chosen (below) — it comes in several pretty prints, and the chic ankle length makes it perfect for pairing with everything from wedges and pumps to flats. The easiest top to wear with printed jeans is a monochromatic top such as a button down shirt, t-shirt, blazer or denim jacket. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try mixing prints like the striped top shown below (read our tips for mixing prints here).
As for flats, a pointed flat would look great, and is perfectly on trend for spring. A ballet flat or even a smoking slipper or loafer would work well, too. Here are some suggestions to start your search:
