Must Have Boots to Wear with Skinny Jeans - Fashion Blog Post

Meet Jack and Jill, my new riding boots. Don't they make a pretty pair? And for $50 -- thanks to Fred Meyers' clearance markdown -- they are a deal too.

Boots -- they are more than meets the eye

Back in the Midwest, I feared wearing tall boots over skinny jeans. Always thought it was for the trendier crowd, and opposed my girl-next-door style. After one rainy day in Seattle, however, when the bottom of my jeans dragged through puddles, I realized how functional boots are -- that they protected pants from getting wet. 

From that day on, I became an advocate of tall boots, and have fallen especially for riding boots, the most down-to-earth of them all. I like them so much that I've categorized them as a "must have."


Okay then, why are riding boots must have boots?




They are comfortable

With just a small lift, riding boots are mostly flat, and great for walking. For a pedestrian-friendly place like Seattle, they are great for a (stylish) day around town.

They are versatile

Riding boots can be worn with many things, including leggings, dresses, skirts, and even shorts. 

Also, if you don't feel like wearing them on the outside, you can always cover them under a pair of boot legged or flare jeans.

They are warm

Riding boots are high, and cover your calves. They provide warmth on cold days. 

They are sleek

Riding boots have a sleek appearance and an understated elegance. Putting them on gives you instant class.


Why Wear Them With Skinny Jeans?

Speaking of riding boots' sleekness, they look fantastic with equality sleek -- yet casual -- clothing. Therefore, they look best with skinny jeans, leggings or jeggings (like what I am wearing today).


Thanks for reading.
