Despite the heat of the summer sun boots have made their way into every Fashionisto’s closet. Boots are a staple no matter the season, probably because of their versatility. The desert boot has landed and is here to stay. They offer function (for those times you want to get in touch with your nature side) and are very fashionable. Who could say no to a shoe that is not only fashionable but also provides great function!
This week’s Fashionisto knows the wonder of the desert boot! He decided to pair his light brown boots with surprise pieces, such as a denim jacket. Underneath his denim is a lively graphic T-shirt. His graphic tee adds a punch of color to the otherwise neutral color palette. To go with a neutral tone of his khaki shorts he added a braided leather bracelet. The braided bracelet is a great accessory and has been very trendy for the past few seasons. To add a personal flair and a sophisticated touch, this Fashionisto added a silver Mavado watch. A classic silver watch adds a special touch to this outfit. With items as trendy as a graphic tee and desert boots, it’s always great to add a personal touch, such as a watch or another beloved accessory.
This Fashionisto has done a great job of incorporating basics, such as khaki shorts and denim jacket, to his outfit. But what if you want to add some punch to your desert boots? Go for color! Colored chino shorts have been everywhere this summer — go for your favorite color to start your ensemble. They are a great addition to any outfit because they add a great pop of color while secretly being a great starting piece to any outfit. To go for a more subdued look, add a chambray shirt and a great hat with an interesting print. This creates an interesting pairing that is laid back while still on-trend. Looking for something more daring from your desert boots? Try out the camouflage print, whether it’s on a button-down or a pair of shorts. To top off your daring desert look, go for a pair of socks in a fun print that speaks to your personality. Pull up the socks so the top shows out of your boots.
Spotted: Desert boots were a hit on the Missoni spring 2013 menswear runway show. Desert boots were seen on almost every look and showed the versatility of the shoe while not detracting from Missoni’s famous zigzag pattern.
