How to pick white boots

Style: white boots | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Move over black or brown boots – white boots are here for the fall. You’ve probably seen them around: a “summer” boot trend that has extended itself for an extra season. The white boot pairs with just about any outfit and is in itself a statement piece. A few tips on how to style them:
Height matters. When buying a pair of white boots, look for ones where the shaft comes above the ankle because of…(see next point)

Proportions are the name of game. Instead of elongating the leg, the white color can cause the illusion of shorter legs if you’re not mindful of how it’s paired. If pairing with pants, try to go for more fitted cut and stick with a monochrome outfit. If pairing with a skirt, make sure it’s either high-waisted and/or above the knee.

Have fun with it! These boots can be paired with pants, skirts, or dresses for both work or play.

Style: slip dress

style trend comment

The slip dress has long been one of those unspoken pieces that you wear underneath your other dresses but the new style is to make it the focal point of your outfit. Worn alone or in conjunction with other pieces, it is definitely the statement piece. I’ve picked out 5 slip dresses that can be styled alone or layered for a completely different look.

This black slip dress is beautiful with the lace detail. Try pairing it with a structured blazer and strappy sandals for a more professional look.


 

Pink is such a romantic color and this dress is just that. Want to make the look a little more rugged? Try pairing it with this jacket and these slip on sneakers.


 

Stripes will always hold a special place in my heart and the details at the bottom hem of this dress is perfection. How about adding a button down around the waist to give some visual interest and pairing it with equally playful shoes?


 

The diagonal stripes on this slip dress would be perfect for a tropical getaway. Pair it with a cover-up, cute sandals and a hat, and you have the perfect, relaxing outfit!


 

Though in color and cut, this black slip dress speaks volumes to me. It would be great for a summertime wedding – simply add a belt and heels and you’ll be ready for the dance floor.
