As the mother of all fall fashion staples, boots are an absolute must-have to tackle the season in style. While most fashionistas are well-versed in the potential power of the perfect boot, they may still find themselves wondering which pairs are missing from their fall footwear arsenal, presenting the ultimate style connundrum. If you’ve yet to acquire a boot that’s the perfect mix of dressy and casual, look no further than Saint Laurent’s knee-high striped boot, otherwise known as “the shoes dreams are made of.” Your outfit will never be lacking when you’re strutting around town in these exquisite black and white beauties.
What to wear with such a fabulous shoe? With a piece this versatile, the options are truly endless. While flat boots and sky-high platform boots are a dime a dozen, a 1.5 inch heel is less common, making this an extra special pair with extra special capabilities. For an outfit sure to make a splash, pair black skinny jeans with a black tunic, a little leather jacket and a pair of fabulous printed boots. This will take you from the mall to happy hour and then to dinner in a flash. Carry a cross-body bag in a pop-of-color during daytime and switch it out for a cool clutch for night.
Just because these far-out boots look amazing with jeans doesn’t mean they’re forever banished to the casual side of the closet. Rock these boots with a number of adorable dresses to make the most out of this one statement piece. Print-mixing is one of our favorite past times during the fall season, and these bad boys are prime time for doing just such. Pair your striped boots with a plaid dress and top off with another print in a similar color palette to nail the look to perfection. Play with texture and incorporate a black fur vest or sequined handbag to drive the look right into chic territory.
