Final Touch: Flannel Changer
Put a stylish spin on the season’s plaids with a high, heeled boot.
Fashion is all about balance: a billowy blouse with a slimming stovepipe jean, an edgy moto jacket over a lacy party dress, sporty sneakers with a textured mini skirt. The ultimate goal, of course, is to level the style scales so that you never look shabbily underdressed or shamefully over-the-top.
Now imagine yourself enjoying some downtime on a crisp fall day, latte in hand and crisp leaves underfoot. Rather than throwing on runners, you should probably pair that perfect off-duty plaid and denim duo with a killer over-the-knee boot for the sake of sartorial stability.
It’s no surprise that a heeled, thigh-high boot works like a dream with your 9-to-5 wardrobe, but it can also take a casual look to chic new heights, boosting your style cred and bringing down the cost per wear (hello, good investment!). From brunch to browsing stores to before-dark cocktails with friends, you can take your ’90s-grunge look from relaxed to ready-for-anything with the simple addition of a sleek statement boot. What’s the point of strutting about town in your free time if you’re not going to put your best foot forward anyway?
