Give it the Boot

Originally created to provide protection from the elements, boots have become a fashion staple. Ever since Parisian couturier André Courrèges created the Go-Go boot in the ‘60s,  we were sold. A good pair of boots is a wardrobe investment, able to ground any look. A great pair goes one step further, making a bold fashion statement of its own. Here are five groupings to complement your fall 2017 wardrobe.

TO THE POINT

An ankle boot with a slim heel and subtly pointed toe can take the place of pumps in cooler weather. This proportion works with everything from skirts to dresses to trousers.

GET STACKED

A chunkier heel ankle bootie goes the distance—both literally and figuratively. These are boots made for walking, giving the wearer more stability. An additional  bonus is the added height.

HELLO, MOTO

The particular moto boot your drawn to is a personal decision, but the idea should be a bit edgy, definitely black and perhaps with just a hint of hardware. Paired with a slinky dress, straight-leg pants or mini-skirt, you’re set to go.

A HIGHER PURPOSE

Whether flat or heeled, over-the-knee boots lend a sultry vibe to jeans, skirts or dresses. Did I mention their ability to make your legs look extra long?

THE BOHO BOOT

This is the bootie to pair with everything from filmy dresses to distressed denim. It solves problems you didn’t even know you had. Not just for the festival crowd—a good low boot is casual and cool.
