STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bringing Boots Back

September 16th, 2015 at 2:00am

We have all seen the trend of boots with dresses and skirts. Whether it be on Tumblr, Instagram or Pinterest, there is nothing more eye pleasing than the grunge look of boots with causal dresses or skirts. When this trend first came onto the scene, I was skeptical about how to match the perfect pair of boots with the perfect dress without it looking like a train wreck. But, after seeing so many different pictures with the same look, I decided to give it a try. Soon, I started noticing how this craze took off everywhere for the people who wanted to have the comfort and ease of a dress, with the rocker look of boots.

When I see this outfit it makes me think of how putting different basics together can really make an outfit shine. The mustard-colored cardigan keeps this Fashionista warm in the freezing classrooms of our college campus, while the dress makes the outfit fancy and classic. My favorite part of this outfit—if you haven’t guessed already—is the Dr. Martens look-alike boots.

So how would you pull this look off? Well, the first thing is to grab any basic cardigan from your closet. The best thing about cardigans is that you can put them on when you’re indoors and it is chilly, or take them off when walking in the hot sun. Next, grab any dress in your closet that would look nice with some killer boots. Once you’ve done that, you can pick out any boots that you own that will give your look a little more attitude!
