Style Dilemma: What Shoes to wear with Skinny Pants

I recently received a request from a friend that I thought I would share.

Request: "I need a favor. I have some “skinny pants” - but I am struggling with the shoes. The pants are shown with spiked heels, which is not happening for me. Do I have other options?"

Answer: "Some other shoe options could be ankle booties, tall boots or ballet flats. Here are a few styled options - all budget conscious..."

Option #1: Ankle booties
Gray Sweater / Ankle booties / Leather wrap bracelet

Option #2: Tall boots
Shawl collar sweater / Tall boots / Tassel necklace

Option #3: Ballet flats
Peplum jacket / Ballet flats / Bib cluster necklace

Other than the ponte knit skinny pants shown, you could also wear skinny jeans, like these or these. Also, other ponte knit options available from here or here

Fringe Necklace

I recently purchased this necklace at The Limited (during a 45% off sale!); however, I have struggled with what to wear it with and how to incorporate it into what I have in my own closet verses what the store paired it with. I loved the necklace but just wasn't sure… Recently, I found this sweater at Nordstrom and it sparked an idea that I could pair it with black and my grey denim. When cleaning out my closet this summer, I debated getting rid of my grey jeans that I have had for a few years, and I am so glad that I did not because it is a trend this fall and it worked for this outfit!

So, this is what I came up with from my closet verses the store.

My own closet or similar items:

(similar) Citizens of Humanity Avedon Skinny Leg Jeans sold @ Piperlime
(similar) Martina Pump sold @ Nine West
(similar) Michael Kors Runway Chronograph Watch sold @ Nordstrom
Rubbish Crewneck Sweater sold @ Nordstrom

One other item I would add to my "wish list" and that I would like to pair with this outfit in either the black or bone color, is this item

The Limited:

Faux Leather Kick Pleat Skirt sold @ The Limited
Basic Opaque Control Top Tights sold @ The Limited
Pointy Toe Heel sold @ The Limited
Ombre Scoopneck Sweater sold @ The Limited
