  • Booty Call The Best Boots To Update Your Wardrobe And How To Wear Them

    Classic Cut

    Dear Sharon: I love calf-high and just below the knee boots. What outfits do these look best with? Can we still tuck in our jeans? Help me out! — Absolutely Bootabulous (Curtice, OH)

    Dear Absolutely Bootabulous: What can’t you wear with boots this season?!? The right pair of boots is a sure-fire wardrobe picker-upper like no other. Living in fear of what outfit looks best with a boot is dressing without any spirit of personal style.

    Expand your options- add contrast to flimsy, flirty dresses with a lace-up boot, continue a sleek monochromatic line of a sheath dress with a sculpted heel knee-high boot, or vamp up schoolgirl pleats with a hacked-off booty and great tights.
    No wardrobe should ever be without a classic black knee-high boot with a shaped mid-high heel it’s can’t miss classic personified! Instead of focusing solely on height, think about styles.

    The fresh comeback this season are lace-up boots- there are even ones that zip up the side to alleviate a good five minutes of lacing! Calf-high or knee-high boots look best worn with knee-length to mid-calf skirts.

    The equestrian trend rides and this is exactly where you can tuck in a slim pair of pants into a buckled boot keep the look lean, mean, and of the horsy-set avoid blousy pants stuffed into boots unless you want to experience a Stevie Nicks moment.

    Slithering Style

    Dear Sharon: I recently bought a pair of knee-high snakeskin boots and do not know what to pair them with. I would love to wear them to a party I have on the 29th. Help. -Snaking Around (Eastpointe, MI)

    Dear Snaking Around: There’s always something rocker cool about reptile. Although, reptile skins were a fashion trend last season, you can still, make them work if you play up their classic rock n’ roll edge. Wear your skins with pair of super flare jeans or funky leather skirt. Think Mick and breezy rather trying too hard matchy-matchy.

    Neutral Nuances

    Dear Sharon: What matches with camel colored boots? -So Camel (Selma, CA)

    Dear So Camel: Camel is the great neutral- it can be simply chic when mixed black or ivory, absolutely modern when worn with an of-the-moment bright like red or turquoise, and totally rugged when mixed with brown or olive corduroy. Don’t forget to try kitten heel camel boots with a well-worn jean skirt for a racy twist.

    Gapping Dilemma

    Dear Sharon: I am so glad that you cleared up the pantyhose question. I recently read an article where Aerin Lauder stated that she hasn’t worn pantyhose in years. Should you wear sheer pantyhose with boots when you leave a little leg between your boot and your skirt? – Through the Grapevine (Mableton, GA)

    Dear Through the Grapevine: If your skin tone is even, bare legs are always sexier, however, a good pair of sheers is perfectly acceptable in most situations other than blending in with the superbabe chiclet party at the scene bar du jour.
