SIDE BY SIDE: SOCK STARS
Ready to take on the season’s most of-the-moment look?
Call it a midi-boot, call it an above-the-ankle boot, call it the 2015 boot trend you really have to try, so long as you call it for what it is: awesome. A midi boot (meaning that it’s mid-way between an ankle boot and a knee-high) is of the moment, yet it yields a classically stylish silhouette. Wear it with a midi-length accordion skirt for a feminine, modern fairy-tale vibe, or go for a slightly shorter style for a why-hello-there-long-legs look. And while we love the way this boot will work under a pair of skinny pants (making it all kinds of practical) right now we’ve got major metal on our mind.
Pair a textured, black midi boot with a gold shift dress and you’re instantly channeling the 60s and 70’s and the current fashion mood as well (think Saint Laurent’s runway). A mod-like shift is easy to wear: add a turtleneck or black t-shirt underneath and you get an instant update on the retro vibe. Keep your accessories minimal: think a cocktail ring and a small clutch or shoulder bag, but no more – that gold is already turning heads. Wear anywhere: dinner with bae, an art gallery opening, or anywhere street style snaps might be.
We are obsessed with high-waisted skirts and matching tops right now: a sharp ensemble like this one would make an ideal fit for a more casual holiday party or dinner. What’s so great about this – it’ll work for either day or night (or both! Some parties just run long, you know?) It’s fun, it’s oh-so-modern, and when you pair it with the black Crillian boot and a statement necklace, you will be literally knocking it out of the park. You: one, ugly holiday sweater: zero.
