This is a trend that has stuck around and I’m so pleased- the casual ankle boot. I talked about the popularity of this boot last year in this post, and it is still going strong. This is good news for two reasons:
1. If you purchased some boots like this, they are still in style, so rock them!
2. If you haven’t gotten your hands on a pair, there’s even more options/styles in every price range, which is FANTASTIC.
I love this boot because you can get it with a short heel, or in a flat form. It’s the perfect way to inject some serious style in your wardrobe without making a large effort. Lazy person fashion, you know I love it.
A light grey, khaki or taupe are very popular colors this Fall. Here are a few of my favorites:
Target (I seriously love these shoes) for $49.99
Nine West $119
Sole Society $89
Sole Society $89
Tory Burch (mmmmmmm, PRETTY!) $385 (yikes)
I would recommend wearing these boots with skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans. Bootcut or straight legs jeans are a no-no with this look. The top half of your outfit could be a slouchy sweater, an oversized and loose t-shirt, a chambray button up or even a t-shirt with a blazer over it. Yes, some people even style these boots with dresses. I tend to steer clear of that look because it is fairly “young” and I’m not trying to look like a high schooler. :) I’m too old for that, haha, that ship has SAILED. More on “what not to do” in a post in the near future.
If you purchase one of these “neutral” colored boots, you don’t HAVE to stick with a neutral color palate for the rest of your outfit, but they lend themselves wonderfully to muted Autumn colors. If you want to go a bit more “high fashion” and pair these with LBD’s and such, stick with a black pair.
Here’s me styling a black pair from Sole Society with boyfriend jeans and a casual red blouse:
This year, I’m going for a grey pair, I think. Do you have a favorite pair, brand or color?
