Fall is here. And with the change comes a cool weather requirement: boots. They’re ideal for everyone, from career women to students. It’s the shoe that can keep up with people constantly on the move. Accompanied with the right outfit, boots can be worn from morning to night, making them convenient for even the busiest of lifestyles. It’s an easy look to achieve, as long as you know what to look for.
Which boots are best for an all-day transformation?
We’re going to style 4 boots from Ross & Snow’s collection. The new collection offers classic shapes in a modern, luxurious and functional way. With a shearling-lined interior, your feet stay comfy, insulated and dry, making them excellent candidates for all-day wear. Style them right and they will take your outfit from day to night.
Meet the Boots
- Michela – sky-high boots with a foldable shearling-lined shaft. By far, the most sophisticated pair of the whole collection. It has over 3” of height and a slim and sexy fit. During the day you can rock the cuff, upgrading your casual look with a bit of luxe.
- Elena – the reinvented riding boot. The slimmer, knee-high style is flattering and functional. With a short heel and thicker sole, you’ll be out all day in total comfort. The Elena is practical and flirty, making her a go-to pair for all day wear.
- Renata – this is the staple ankle boot. Renata is the pair you need to transition your closet through the seasons. Perfect for almost any outfit or occasion, she is the easiest boot to style. She has a chunky high heel, so prepare to stand out in this sleek boot.
- Rosina – behold, the mid-calf marvel. This footwear style helps transition you summer minis into colder weather. With a stacked outsole, she’s your feet’s best friend – comforting you from 9 to 5 straight to a night out. With midi-hems, Rosina is one to stun.
Day to Night Outfits
Jeans and an oversized sweater is the trademark outfit of fall. Either skinny or boyfriend fits, it’s cozy and effortless. High-waisted styles can be worn with fun cropped tops for warmer days. To take it to night, switch out the top for something fitted then top slip into a faux fur coat. Voile –you’ll be warm and on trend. If only all of our problems could be solved just by adding faux fur. Depending on the occasion, this look pairs well with all boot styles. Try out Elena for a more practical night. If you’re feeling edgy, stomp around in Renata and opt for a graphic tee and boyfriend jeans. If you need an added ounce of glam, go big in the heeled Michela and skinnies. All you need is a key statement piece to transform your outfit.
If you’re heading to work (and jeans aren’t part of the dress code), opt for a midi dress and a long trench coat. Knits are work-appropriate, but a body-con midi with a tasteful leg slit means business. This look is trending with mid-calf boots like Rosina, – this classic silhouette captivates most when the hem matches the top of the boots. It’s a statement outfit that you can wear even once the sun goes down. You can swap for a sleek jacket for an edge or lose the jacket to bare those shoulders – pair with Renata to show off a bit more skin. If you’re going for a subdued look, Rosina in Leopard has a voice of its own.
It may be fall but don’t put away those mini dresses! Boots are a great way to continue wearing your summer favorites into the colder months. For casual occasions, shirt dresses are chic and pair with boot styles. Add a blazer or a knit sweater, and you have a work-ready outfit. Once you’re off the clock, slip into something slinkier like a sexy slip dress or velvet mini. Throw over a moto jacket for a fun “hard and soft” look – the key is to be conscious of your outfit’s silhouette. I’d pair this outfit with Rosina or Elena, uncuffed, for a rugged finish. For more femininity, Michela and Renata will take you there.
Styled with any top from tees, a button-down to feminine blouses – miniskirts can be worn every season. Aim for flowy fits during the day, like skater and A-line skirts, which accommodate lots of movement. They’re flirty and extremely versatile depending on your personal flair. For school or work, Rosina and Elena are best for a comfy look and built-in practicality for fall. To hit the town, tighten up with a leather mini or a flirty lace-up bodycon skirt. Turn up the femme with a silk cami (bonus if it has lace details), and layer under a bomber jacket for a sexy but sporty vibe. To balance out the jacket, go for either Renata or Rosina for polish.
All-day Outfits and Comfort to Boot
You’ll find them in closets of people on the move. From working women to students, this sturdy footwear is a fashion necessity. Ankle boots are a sundress staple in the spring and knee-highs are synonymous with fall. The versatility does not stop there – when worn right, any outfit can be worn all day with just a few key changes.
During the day, when you’re out and about, it’s important to be practical and accommodate for movement. Whether you’re rushing between classes or running to a meeting, stepping into a thicker sole and heel will keep you going. Once work is done and it’s time to play, be conscious of your silhouette. Balance slimmer and sleeker fits. With the help of thigh-highs or polished ankle boots, you can top your flirty nighttime look with a loud coat. Once the weather gets colder, you’ll be happy your feet are fashionable and comfy in Ross & Snow’s shearling-lined boots.
