style trend comment

Move over leg hugging boots – slouchy boots are here. Earlier in the year, they were on all the major runways. These boots are flexible by design and go well with skinny pant silhouettes. But, that’s not all – consider pairing them with a form fitting sweater dress to contrast the proportions. I’ve rounded up boots of all heights and colors with prices starting at $59 and all are under $200!


SHOP THE LOOK:

ONE {3 colors}

TWO {vegan leather; only $80}

THREE {can fold down back part of slouch}

FOUR {3 colors}

FIVE {4 colors}

SIX {50% off & 2 colors}

SEVEN {5 colors}

EIGHT {under $100 & 2 colors}

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.

THREE {2 colors}

As you’re prepping for the boot season, don’t overlook the current sock boot trend. The tight-fitting boot trend is distinct in its close hugging nature. Not only that, its length falls somewhere between the calf and ankle giving the illusion of a true sock. Their popularity is due to the silhouette they help create: a slimming effect. Pair it with your favorite legging to create the look of extra long legs. Or, pair them with your crop pants to extend your wear when the temperatures drop.

1. Burgundy velvet sock boot {only $34 & comes in 2 colors}

2. Green stiletto sock boot {comes in 2 colors}

3. Pink {literal} sock boot {30% off & comes in 3 colors}
