My favorite shoes to wear with Luna Pants

The jogger-style pant is a relatively new trend, so when I first started wearing my Luna Pants last summer, I played it safe and just wore them with sandals. Since then, I’ve discovered that Luna looks great with a number of other shoes, so I wanted to share my four favorite kinds of shoes to wear with Luna Pants. Maybe this will give you some new ideas if you’ve been wondering how to wear your new Luna Pants!

Clogs
I think Lunas are adorable with clogs. The heel helps make the leg look longer and increases the distance from the cuff to the ground, which is visually flattering! (these are Dansko clogs, by the way)

Sneakers
This is the school-pickup or yoga class look. Bonus: it’s comfortable and sporty!

Sandals
As I mentioned, Luna looks great with sandals, and the options are nearly endless depending on whether you have dressy, casual, flat or heeled sandals (the heeled sandals shown here are also Danskos).

Flats
Dress them up with a pointed flat, or go with a ballet flat, Toms, or moccassins for everyday wear.

Finally, here’s a shoe that I tried but I don’t really think works: the high top sneaker (even though I la-la-love these new Supergas!! Just not quite right with Lunas).

What do you think? I don’t love it, but if you do, I’d support you 100%.

I think the reason it’s not a win for me is that personally, I think jogger-style pants look best with a bare ankle. This also means that wearing them in winter can be tricky. Jess pulls it off with a pair of adorable ankle boots, but finding the perfect bootie can be a trick. I’ll admit most of the time when the weather’s cold I just go Full Nerd and wear my Lunas with striped socks to fully cover all bare skin, but it’s not the most attractive look. So take advantage of the warmer weather and get out there and wear those fabulous pants!

  1. Ha! And if you go full in nerd, Rae, I support *you* 100%. Living your work lately. You’re such a natural and it’s great to see all your hard work paying off. Keep having fun!

  2. I’ve been letting this trend pass me right on by, because I knew at a glance those would not be flattering pants for my body shape. But, I clicked on the styling post out of idle curiosity and… look at that – cropped joggers. Now, isn’t that interesting? That could work for me. There might just be a muslin in my future.

    • Haha that’s great! Let me know how it goes!

      I’m the first to admit Luna isn’t a style for everyone –it’s great that you know your own body and what works for you!
