Trend Alert: Jazz Shoes

So, you've been seeing all those hipsters rocking adorable and oh-so-comfy-looking lace-up jazz shoes... and you're wondering, "How can I wear those?"

Here's my advice. They look great with skinny jeans, but not on everyone. If you don't like wearing skinny jeans, wear them with just-above-the-ankle jeans that are either tapered or boot-cut.

If you have larger feet, I may also suggest skipping this trend. You're in danger of looking like a clown, because they tend to make your feet look longer than they are.

Jazz shoes look their absolute best with leggings, shorts and A-line dresses. It's a great way to make a dress look more casual if you're running out the door to run some errands and want to avoid wearing heels.

I love this photo shoot with Keri Russell from InStyle Magazine. This is a great example of the jazz shoes pulled off perfectly with jeans.

    I LOVE those red ones! Where are they from?

    Also...just as another side note - these shoes can get really smelly, so i suggest you buy them cheap or buy some nylon footsie slippers to wear with them.
