In addition to dark-colored cowboy boots, you also find many light-colored boots like white or red. For these cowboy boots, you’ll need to consider color harmony.

Red or white cowboy boots may be more suitable for women than men when wearing black jeans. The style of black skinny jeans combined with colorful cowboy boots always brings a youthful vibe to women.

I’ve seen many men also wear red cowboy boots to go with black jeans and look good, but it’s a crimson color.

If you are a man and prefer cowboy boots in bright colors like red or white, then dress pants, khaki pants, or cargo pants may be a better choice than black jeans.

In addition to the color harmony, you should also know how to match cowboy boots with black jeans properly.

While most cowboy boots will pair very well with black jeans for a sharp look, it’s pointless if you tuck jeans into your boots.

One of the rules for men in the world of cowboy boots is that you won’t tuck jeans into the boot shaft. They will cause a contrasting style and not bring a clean look.

Even though black jeans are great with cowboy boots, don’t let that happen. Make sure the bottom legs of the black jeans are wide enough to tuck the shaft in without the patterns or V shape collar being printed on them. And your jeans should be long enough to cover the entire boot shaft.

The types of black jeans that men should stay away from are skinny jeans or shorts, as they will expose the entire shaft.

Meanwhile, for women, you have more freedom in style and there are almost no binding rules. As long as you feel the combination is beautiful and has good harmony.

In addition to cowhide, bull hide or goat leather cowboy boots that you often come across, some exotic cowboy boots such as caiman, ostrich, or lizard leather should be your choices to match with black jeans.

These exotic leathers are usually dark and unique, but go great with black pants. Lizards or caiman leather will bring a formal style, while ostrich leather is elegant for casual wear.

Conclusion

In general, you can confidently wear black jeans with cowboy boots, especially dark-colored boots (and most cowboy boots are dark).

The combination of black jeans and cowboy boots can bring harmony in both color and style. This gives you a clean and classic look.

You should also pay attention to the exotic leather boots, they have very beautiful and unique finishes that will surely make you impressed.

However, if you are a man, make sure you wear jeans with cowboy boots properly. Cowboy boots with shafts should be tucked into black jeans without letting the shaft’s patterns be printed onto the pants.

In addition, men should not choose skinny jeans or shorts to wear with cowboy boots. The rule in the world of cowboy boots is that men shouldn’t show the boot shaft unless your job forces you to.

That’s all you need to know and take note of!
