My female friend and I are having a debate that we can't come to an agreement on. She says that it looks trashy and girls who don't know any better dress like that and are sending the wrong message to guys. I say that it looks great, it's normal and considered to be classy to have a nice looking pair of jeans and heels on (pumps, sandals, slingbacks - your choice). We're talking about doing normal everyday things like going to work, shopping, or going to a restaurant for lunch, whatever. Also, we're not talking about shoes a stripper would wear, just normal heels.
If you need more detail, let me know. All opinions are much appreciated.
Call me crazy, but I'm thinking this debate is going my way. Ladies, much appreciated for the all the responses so far, keep them coming! Your insight is great. Also, if there's any dudes out there who have an opinion, type it up. Merry Xmas!
Thanks again for all the responses. Pretty amazing when you have every response going your way... much love and thanks for all of your insight!
Whaaaaaaat? I love wearing heels with jeans as do most of my friends. I don't think it's ever passed our minds as being trashy. I mean, maybe if you're wearing a lowcut top with cleavage out to there. But what? What other shoes are we respectable women supposed to wear out? You can only go so far wearing flats. (and don't tell me to wear sneakers to look nice.)
If she thought wearing heels with a mini skirt was slutty or trashy, I'd no doubt agree. But jeans? Com'on lighten up.
i dont' think it looks trashy to wear heels with jeans but I've never done it before. I think it just looks ok. I think heels, with heels, I would rather wear a cute dress with it, like a shirt dress or a light summer skirt with heels or even capris, but not jeans
god no.I don't think it looks slutty! next thing you know, wearing tank tops will be slutty, showing a little wrist will be slutty.cmon now! don't heels make you feel good, not to mention a bit taller when you are short.I think heels make an outfit look classy and clean.
Not at all! If the jeans were distressed and ripped it might look a little cheap, but nice regular wash or dark wash jeans are perfectly fine with heels. The only other option would be with skirts, dresses or dress pants. Short skirts with heels for the "every day" look would definitely be trashy. But for work or shopping heels with casual dresses, jeans, dress pants, or pencil skirts are absolutely appropriate!
I have no idea why she would think it looks trashy to wear heels with jeans, I think it generally makes an otherwise boring everyday outfit look interesting! And who wears flats anymore for that matter?
omg, Heels with anything is attractive! The girl who thinks not, what do you were? sneakers all the time? goodness. how in the world is a wearing heals with a pair of jeans skanky? the only way they would be was if you wore a whorish shirt with it. Is your friend amish, or of an old school religion?
i like the jeans and the heels look... I think it is classy... but only if done rite... like no heels with holey trashy jeans... but a nice pair of jeans and a flirty top and cardi with a cute hand bag would be cute I think...
If you can't wear jeans with heels, what can you wear with them? Tennis shoes and sneakers seem so dressed downed and flats? I'm short enough, thank you! I think heels are universal - wear them with anything but sweat pants.
Ok 5 months too late, but I think jeans and high heels are wierd. They are sort of a turn off. I would rather someone wear sneakers and jeans or a skirt and high heels. I've seen it on the street but I don't like it.
