STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Riding Boots Are Made For Walking

Style Advice of the Week

Accessories are very important to any person’s wardrobe but during late autumn they become even more essential to an overall outfit. When all you can really wear to protect yourself from the cold is jeans and a jacket, it is important to enhance your look. This Fashionista does this with her riding boots and her purse. Boots are hot on the market right now from the combat boot to the riding boot there are a variety of choices for everyone. If you decide you want something different, check out lace up boots or even suede boots. For a night look maybe search for one’s with a thick heel or if you want one for a day look checkout tan booties. I like how the Fashionista paired a long cardigan with  simple leggings and a nice blouse, but a lot of the outfit is made because of the boots.

Riding boots are a trend that is prevalent on this campus but what was unique about this outfit was the addition of a woven purse. I rarely see woven purses in the fall time usually it is during the summer months. However, this purse adds a unique twist to the overall look. Woven purses are not only long lasting but cute for every day use.  Woven purses are similar to basket purses primarily used in Africa. The trend has creeped into mainstream society and is being loved by everyone around including me.

Somehow the Fashionista was able to blend distinct colors into her outfit and it looks great! The dark colored sweater with the bright colored blouse and the complement of an off pink jewelry directly matches  her tan purse and color blocked riding boots. Everything was put together well and the boots and the purse play an overlooked role!
