When it comes to choosing the best jeans to wear with cowboy boots, it’s hard to know where to start. At Cavender’s we have endless options, which allows for different combinations. Finding the right combination will ensure you’re comfortable and looking your best. Check out our style guide below for the best jeans to wear with boots while working on the ranch, walking down the school halls, or headed downtown for a date night.

Cavender’s Style Guide: Best Jeans for Boots

When looking for the best jeans for boots, you’ll want to pay attention to a few key things: the material, the fit, and the cut.


Denim is perfect for cowboys and girls. The material is comfortable enough to wear in any setting, but tough enough to withstand a lot of activity without wearing out. The durability of denim jeans makes it a good pairing for cowboy boots and gives you a classic western look. In terms of color, it depends on individual style, but typically you can’t go wrong with dark or medium-wash jeans. The slightly darker colors give a clean look and helps hide dirt, grass stains, and whatever else you might accumulate working on the ranch or farm.

Make sure you’re choosing jeans that fit well. Every body is different and so is every brand. Take a trip down to your local Cavender’s store to try a few different pairs on. Once you know your jean size, you can also order from Cavender’s online as well. Pay extra attention to your jeans length. Try on your boots with your jeans to make sure they aren’t too short or too long. The rule of thumb to follow is that your hemline should stop at the end of your boots shaft.


The cut of your jeans is arguably the most important thing to pay attention to when choosing the right jeans to wear with your cowboy boots. For women’s jeans, skinny styles can be tucked in. This puts the spotlight on the boot itself. You can also choose boot cut and flare jeans to go over the shaft of the boot for a classic look. For men’s jeans, your best options are boot cut, straight-leg, or tapered for a slimmer look. Just make sure that whichever cut you choose, you don’t have too much difficulty getting your jeans to fit over your boots. Your jeans should be roomy enough to not see the shaft outline of your boots underneath your jeans.
