I’ve been trying my best to steer clear of the official “fall boot blog” for weeks now, because well, I’m still sweating when I leave the house and there isn’t even snow up north yet (our north that is), it just didn’t feel right. However, there are too many fantastic boots out there to avoid it any longer and the way I see it you want to be prepared when the time finally comes—right?
So here are my favorite boots of the Fall 2011 season, and of course how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe…even starting now if you really want to.
Riding boots are a true classic and an effortless way to give a casual outfit that extra bit of chicness. If you do decide to do a riding boot you of course have to do Ralph Lauren. According the RL Style guide these Isella Calfskin riding boots will go great with dark opaque tights and a short flared skirt.
Boots and Dress at Kate Spade
The bootie has become a fall/winter staple over the past few years because of its sexier and less cumbersome silhouette. We have covered several different varieties of the bootie, glitter, color blocked etc. on the blog so far, but Kate Spade takes the cake with what I like to call the holiday bootie. This Leigh suede and fur bow-accented bootie is ultra feminine, making it the perfect bootie for any Holiday outfit!
Boots and Sonia Rykiel Dress at Net-A-Porter
The over-the-knee boot is undoubtedly one of the sexiest styles a woman can wear. There are several ways to incorporate these gray suede Gucci over-the-knee boots, but my favorite is with a knee length dress…a sort of mysterious-sexy. Of course you can always pair with skinny jeans for a glamorous day look or a mini and opaque tights for a night of dancing.
Boots at Nordstrom
I will be the first to admit that a fur boot can get way out of hand, remember when celebrities thought it was cool to wear boots that looked like sasquatch feet? However these shearling UGG boots are gorgeous. For a more animal friendly look you can get these very similar Captive boots by Fergie. The fairly neutral tones of these boots cry out to be paired with bold, rich colors—play with oranges, deep blues, and purples.
Last but not least is probably my favorite boot—the rain boot. For me there is no other rain boot than a Burberry Leather Trim rain boot. What do you wear with rain boots? A trench coat. Lucky for us trench coats now come in a wide range of colors, silhouettes and materials. So, if the classic camel trench isn’t your idea of stylish try something like this Patent Sleeve Trench also from Burberry.
