4 Looks That Get Us Excited For Boot Season
There are some boots that will never go out of style. This reason in itself justifies the investment—if it’s something you can wear for years, it’s absolutely worth the splurge.
But how do you make something so timeless feel fresh? We asked style influencer Brittany Xavier to style four classic boot silhouettes in a way that feels fresh for fall.
1. The Combat Boot
The black combat boot may be standard issue, but don’t feel relegated to the expected hue. “I love the muted color of these combat boots,” says Xavier, who styled her MCKENZEE boots with a cozy, off-white sweater and cropped pants. “They’re a bit taupe, and I don’t have any other boots that are this color currently in my closet.”
The combat adds the perfect amount of edge to any outfit. Not only is it sturdy, but the utilitarian style is versatile too. “They can be styled up or down and throughout any season,” says the street-style star. “You’ll find me wearing them in the summer with shorts and in the winter time with jeans and a coat or a mini dress and sheer tights.”
2. The Buckle Boot
In a cream cardigan and white, wide-leg pants that crop just high enough, Xavier channels a “slight cowboy vibe” with her buckled boots. The doubled metal hardware and leather add unexpected dimension and character to her neutral, clean outfit. At the same time, the shoe would fare just as well paired with an animal print or statement piece, she insists.
