What to Wear with Light Blue Jeans — Tips for Men.

Header Banner Header Banner

There’s no denying the everlasting power of jeans.

First produced in spring of 1873, jeans were called “waist overalls” because their purpose was to serve as work pants — their sturdy material and ability to look casual yet spiffy made them go continental… worldwide.

Light blue jeans are a classic touch to any man’s outfit and their timelessness and versatility with any look cannot be ignored. Light blue jeans, unlike any other color jean, have a light-hearted, fun quality that is simply meant to brighten a look.

But light blue jeans, unlike other color jeans, don’t just go with anything and everything. To truly rock the style, it’s important to know the tips and tricks of what matches and what doesn’t and the accessories that complement the pair rather than waste them.

So, The Highest Fashion, lo and behold, has tips and tricks headed your way:

What Shoes to Wear with Light Blue Jeans

Now that you know what to wear above your light blue jeans, let’s start getting into the nitty gritty of how you can best sport a style below them.

Before we go into our top 10 shoes that pair perfectly with light blue jeans, let’s get one cardinal rule straight: always, always match the shoes on your feet to the belt you are wearing.

In other words, never pair a pair of black shoes with a brown belt and vice versa.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s check out some of the snazziest looks you can pull together with your light blue jeans:

  • White sneakers
  • Any color converse (this really brings to bear the retro vibe)
  • Brown suede shoes
  • Grey sneakers or loafers
  • Brown leather shoes or loafers
  • Dark brown boots
  • Black Doc Martins
  • Black leather boots
  • Pastel patchwork trainers
  • One-striped sneakers

The key, as with the shirts, is to provide substance and depth to your outfit without taking away or washing out the light blue jeans.

Shoes that aren’t too “noisy” in their pattern or coloring but that gently collaborate with the blue lightness to show sophistication allows for the eye to refrain from feeling too crowded.

Ideas of What to Wear with Light Blue Jeans for Guys

It’s the worst feeling when you have a dope pair of jeans but nothing in your closet seems like it goes with them.

And The Highest Fashion doesn’t want you feeling desperate and slagging on a yellow tee over your light blue jeans creating what France would call a fashion faux pas.

If you’re currently staring at the shelves of your wardrobe, question marks pouring out of your head, let’s see if we can be of any help!

Before we write out how some of your closet essentials can suddenly become your light blue jeans’ best friend, check out this cool video for some “light” inspiration:

Are your light blue jean gears churning? Let’s add some fuel to the fire by fleshing out what items you own can actually help complete your look:

  • Bulky knit sweaters

If you have any winter sweaters lying around that are knit, mesh or just wintery looking, their elegance can fit the light blue jean quality perfectly.

  • Muscle tees

You read that right. Muscle tees, especially when black, complement the kindness of the light blue with its edgy contrast. Its juxtaposition is what makes the two stand out alone, together.

  • Beanies

Any old beanie lying around can actually elevate your light blue jeans to look rather hipster and artsy. Don’t ask why it works – just indulge!

  • Rich-colored scarf/black scarf

It doesn’t take much for an outfit to come together for men, especially when you go just a little extra mile to show you care about your look. So, if you have a warm winter scarf that you’ve neglected, this can be the very game-changer that makes your light blue jeans pop with a debonair galante that’s rare to come by.

  • Turtlenecks

Just like light blue jeans, turtlenecks are classic, traditional and spiffy-looking because of their vintage appeal. Putting the two together, it’s like sophistication fireworks.

If none of these ideas strike you, or if they do but you still have nothing of the sort, maybe it’s time you admit that a little shopping is to be done.

Light blue jeans that are cut or ripped matched with a white shirt and camo jacket scream “edge” and “swagger” unlike anything else. Light blue jeans often feel light-hearted and more formal than darker jeans.

Thrown a light-colored (preferably white) dress shirt and sport this cashmere crewneck on top. Be sure to puff out the collar and have the sweater be short enough that the dress shirt sticks out.

Slide into these light brown loafers with minimal laces to complete the look and grab hold of this black leather jacket for the slick, glossy effect.

The Cool, Calm and Confident

True blue and casual yet confident, this look’s openness and channel of one color allows for a very suave and subtlety powerful ensemble.

The openness of the chest yet matching of the shoes and dress shirt creates a welcoming coolness that the color blue underscores even further.

This look is quite simple if you already own a blue dress shirt, brown belt and blue loafers.
