STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather and Bohemian

Style Advice of the Week

I have talked about this shoe numerous times in past posts. Its practicality makes it the ultimate choice from fall through winter. Its style allows one to dress it up or dress down. This shoe is the riding boot. Yet, despite the variety of fun styles the riding boot offers (two-toneombré tipped and quilted) the simple black or brown boot seems to be a favorite. This Fashionista’s outfit is a great example. She styles a solid black colored riding boot in an innovative way that pushes spring fashion forward.

However, not only is this shoe a trend on campus, but it’s also trendy on the catwalk. The boot was a sleek and sporty ensemble in Alexander Wang’s fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection as seen in New York Fashion Week. It was also a classy and elegant addition to Tom Ford’s fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection in London. Therefore, as seen on the runways and as well as in town this tall boot is a stylish and practical trend.

Furthermore, this Fashionista’s shoe was not the only fashionable piece to her outfit. Other elements of her outfit include a denim button-down and tribal printed skirt paired with tights. Together these elements create a bohemian look. The colors of her light blue denim shirt match the loud tones of red on her skirt to evoke bright spring colors. With all the snow and below freezing temperatures this winter, bright colors are a nice way to anticipate the warm weather to come.

This Fashionista’s Longchamp bag also adds a sense of spring fever as well. The navy color is a pretty color for spring and size of the tote bag is perfect accessory for the fashionable college student.

The riding boot is a fashionable shoe during this season. Mix and match it to your personal style to be riding in style.
