We show you how some of today's most fashionable women are wearing trendy flat shoes with skinny jeans, so you can achieve this modern and effortlessly stylish look, wherever your day takes you.

Metallic Loafers

Metallic shoes — much like leopard print shoes — will never go out of fashion. The latest style to take the fashion world by storm is the shiny, metallic leather shoe that fronts like a menswear loafer, but is crafted in an easy to wear, slip-on style that's great for warmer days. Since metallic tones are considered a neutral, you can pair a metallic loafer in glimmering gold (those pictured here are by Gucci) or shiny silver with all your skinny jeans outfits, to look smart for the office, cocktails, or shopping with friends.

When you want to stand out from the crowd in skinny jeans, consider the fashionable effect of pairing body-hugging skinny jeans with menswear-inspired leather shoes. Pointy toed, menswear-inspired leather loafers add a fashionable, boy-meets-girl charm to your daytime outfits and more comfortable than stilettos to walk around. Black is a classic choice for loafers, as in the Jimmy Choo shoes pictured here, but you can also find this footwear style available in stores and online in a variety of colors and textures.

Sneakers go together with skinny jeans like peanut butter and jelly. Sneakers are a great option when you want to add some edge to your outfit, or dress down your look for daytime. A basic white running shoe style is really a must-have in your wardrobe — you'll be surprised at how often you pull on this shoe with your daytime and weekend outfits, including dresses. We like how a classic white sneaker can add a cheeky dose of laid back weekend style to dressed-up jeans outfits, even for the office.

Add a fashion-forward vibe to your outfits in slim jeans outfits when you wear them with furry, comfortable moccasins. This footwear adds a cozy vibe to streetwise looks in skinny jeans, and keeps your outfit super-comfortable, whether you choose to go with a full shoe or a trendy moccasin slide. Don't save these snuggly shoes for colder weather, either. Furry slip-ons match surprisingly well with summery, bohemian looks, so go ahead and wear that off-the-shoulder top or white peasant blouse with your jeans. You can also wear these comfy flat shoes to soften a boyish outfit of a leather motorcycle jacket and jeans.

Flatform sneakers are trendy now — and we like the way these cheeky, casual shoes can give you the same leg-lengthening boost of height as high-heeled pumps, while being easier to wear around town all day long. Plus, these cheery sneakers come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, giving an instant style upgrade to your daytime jeans outfits, whether you’re wearing them to go shopping or out on a casual date.

When you want to stand out from the crowd in your skinny jeans, consider the fashionable effect of pairing slim-fitting denim with shiny, patent leather loafers, inspired by dressed-up menswear. These shoes are super-stylish with jeans as they are, but for an ultra-current and fun look, try dressing up a lace-up loafer with rainbow ribbons (this pair is from the Ted and Muffy footwear line).

Tall Flat Boots

Tall, flat leather boots, such as the ever-popular riding boot, are easy to pull on over skinny jeans and, in a classic shape that fits close to the leg, they never look wrong. Choose black or brown boots for a more uptown, polished look. You can also add color to a basic outfit with a flat boot red or forest green. Want to take a walk on the wild side? Choose a riding boot style in a metallic tone or wild leopard-print.
