Ask Alison | Style My Boots

It’s time for Ask Alison, my regular feature where I provide virtual styling solutions for your fashion questions.  This week’s question comes from Michael.

Alison, I have a pair of boots that I got for a steal.  Although I can semi-see how I should wear them, I have NO idea what to wear them with.  Can you help? – Michael Z.

Why certainly, Michael!  It would be my pleasure.  (BTW, you should check out Michael’s blog Crazy Tragic Almost Magic for some serious comic relief.  She is one funny girl!)  First off, what a great pair of boots.   I just love the zipper detail and the heel.  This color also works really well with just about everything.

I couldn’t find  your exact boots for this set, so I had to improvise but you’ll get the idea.  I created two different casual looks – one wintry for colder days and the other more of a transitional look into spring.

Wintry Mix features a pair of emerald green jeans, a fur vest, lightweight turtleneck sweater, leopard socks to peek out above the boots and a fun bright clutch.

Warm Front combines girly florals with tough studs and spikes.  It features floral denim, a lightweight knit, a spike necklace, studded purse and mixed metal bangles.

  • I love these boots and I love both ways you styled them! The floral pants outfit is so fun. Great job! Heather

  • Cute boots and love the outfits you posted that will match! I really need to apply to what not to wear. I think I have about 2 cute, stylish outfits. Other than that, jeans and t-shirts are what you will find in my closet!! Have a great Valentine’s Day!

  • So pretty! 🙂 Happy Valentines day!

  • Those boots are fantastic!!

  • Crazy! I have the wintry mix in my closet! The vest, the pants, the elephant pendant, my wallet is coral, and obviously the boots! I’ll give it a try this weekend and see how it works out. I think my biggest issue is the boots beign ankle height. I’ve conditioned myself to think tall boots go OVER pants and short boots go UNDER. Time to burn the rule book.

    • And a HUGE THANK YOU for doing this!

      Ha! No way, that’s awesome! And yes, those boots need to be over the jeans, you would hide the cute details if they were under them. It was my pleasure. I really love those boots.

  • Great job! Love both looks!

    What brand are the boots. I am not sure how to figure out your sources? Thanks!
