Mastering the Black Boot

Black boots are an absolute wardrobe must-have and there are tons of gorgeous style options out there. Still, many of us tend to purchase a lackluster pair because they’re a popular style or on sale. Can we make a pact, girls? No more blending in with the crowd or choosing the safe style option, okay?

Treat your black boots like a high-fashion accessory. They should add interest to your outfit in an edgy yet classy way and the look should seem effortless. Avoid anything overly ornate or too sleek. You don’t want to be too trendy or conservative. The best option is a boot with hints of detail to draw attention without distracting from the rest of your outfit.  

Ready to master the black boot? Here are a few tips and options to consider:

Timeless Details

Fringe and buckles have been popular for decades and will always be in style. Choose a boot that keeps this trend to a minimum so you can dress it up or down easier. They’ll look great with skinny jeans, leggings, and dresses.

Universal Heights

Heel and boot shaft heights matter. A lower height for both is universally flattering and versatile. Low, chunky heels are timeless and provide excellent support for your feet. Ankle boots or booties look sleek and can be worn with wider leg pants.

Wood Toned Heels

This color combination is great because it’s subtle and feminine. Wooden heels also hide scuffmarks well. Wear them with floral dresses to add a hint of bohemian style or with all black attire to soften your look.

Remember impeccable style is found, not forced. But, you can’t discover it if you’re not willing to have fun with fashion or try something new. So go forth and look fierce, my friends. It’s totally allowed.
