Fall boot style (even when it’s 80 degrees)
by Amy Tullis
My favorite part of this time of year is being able to wear boots and booties that I can’t wear during the warmer months. While it’s still about 75 degrees outside on a good day, I still found a way to incorporate my favorite boots into my wardrobe. Booties are my favorite to style because there are so many ways to dress them! For work I’ll throw on a t-shirt dress, cardigan and my favorite pair of booties. It’s a quick and comfortable way to look cute on a daily basis. On the weekends I’ll wear my booties with a pair of distressed jeans and a flowy top.
In Texas it’s very hard for me to wear mid-calf or over the knee boots since it’s still in the high 70s in December. If I decide to just deal with the heat and wear them (like I did today!), I’ll pair my over the knee boots with a dress that hits around mid-thigh. For my mid-calf boots, I’ll style them with jeans and a flannel for an easy fall outfit. If I need a dressier outfit I’ll typically try to wear a dress or a blouse with dark jeans with my booties and cuff my jeans.
When shopping for boots, I try to find some that I can dress up or down, so that I have multiple options. It’s also a good idea to go with neutrals that I know will match with almost anything I already have. Taupe toned boots are awesome because you can wear them with black or brown outfits. I have a pair of booties that have fringe on them for when I’m wanting a statement outfit. PS… good tip is to go boot shopping towards the end of winter so you can get them on sale for next season.
So even if you’re sweltering in the South like me, pull those boots out!
