Hello! Hello! It’s boot week. I’ve been stalking my favorite boots from Tanger for weeks now and it’s finally time to share the love. There are so many varieties and each serve different fashions and functions. Because I’ve been a boot connoisseur for awhile now, I admittedly have one of each (of the below). With that said, I think I’m a pretty good judge of the perfect boot for each and every one of you. It’s like a dating game… It’s all about finding the right match!
Are you the super casual, kind of trendy, wanna fit in with the cool kids type? Booties are for you! Wear them with skinny jeans or pair with a casual dress if you dare. Look for a cut that’s low enough to show off the ankle. I learned the hard way that it prevents blisters. A shorter cut is also a little more flattering to the leg line.
Are you a little preppy and adore oversized sweaters, piko shirts and blanket scarfs for fall? Riding boots are your BFF. They are a bit more refined than the bootie and come in really great, genuine leathers. I have multiple pairs of black and brown riding boots. I would also suggest wearing these with skinnies (tucked in) or even a mini skirt styled with other fall layers. Also, buckles for the win!
Are you the trend-setter – first to try and eager to buy type, always looking for straight from the runway fashions at Tanger? Try the knee-high or over-the-knee boot this year for a showstopping look. Wear them with your favorite leggings or on their own. I love these suede beauties from Charlotte Russe. The tie detail behind the knee is fun and practical (allowing the leg a little room to breath).
I got it! You’re the sporty, outdoor enthusiast that laughs out loud at the thought of wearing leather in your fall/winter conditions. That’s fine, but there’s still a practical option for you! These ski boots from the Columbia Outlet are the perfect shade of winter white. Call me crazy, but I think these would look so stylish with all all white/cream ski suit – head-to-toe. I love it! Talk about a snow bunny. 🙂
Ahh you’re the fun, free spirited type. If so, you need a fun and stylish pair of rain boots this season! Gone are the days of the shiny boots that you splashed to school in. Now, it’s all about making the rain boot appear as part of the originally intended outfit, like these from Saks OFF Fifth. Who would ever know! I love the stretch detail on the side – a touch of practically (no water seeping in, please) and a splash of fashion. Go for the win in these puddle jumpers!
So, what are you waiting for! Pick the style that’s right for you and go find your match! Happy shopping.
