Style Forecast: Leggings & Boots

By on October 8, 2014, in Soft Surroundings
Fall is here again, and that means it’s time to bring out the leggings and boots! As supremely comfortable as jeans and a t-shirt, leggings and boots have become a wardrobe staple. With the right layers and accessories, this look can go from casual to effortlessly chic.

The beauty of this season is that really, anything goes when it comes to pairing leggings and boots. Styles are delightfully mixed to create eclectic, romantic and edgy accents. You’ll find a multitude of figure-flattering options if you stick to a few basic rules:

Leggings are more body conscious and are meant to create a sleek, slim look in a layered outfit. Make sure they are neither too tight nor too loose. Pair them with a tunic-style top, sweater, or soft jacket with a long, lean, flowing silhouette that falls to the upper- to mid-thigh.

And of course, your leggings will look best with a great pair of boots. Tall boots in shades similar to your leggings will give you a polished look that elongates the leg. A great pair of booties will look fantastic with leggings as well, as long as you make sure your leggings are in proportion to the booties.

From there, your options are limitless!


Beautifully Eclectic: Rich color meets dark denim, and a military jacket-inspired silhouette is softened with feminine lace trim. Accents of gold in long, statement earrings and edgy-yet-sophisticated chain-trimmed boots make this look a perfect play of fall styles.

full2Elegantly Equestrian: Conjuring up the infinitely romantic English countryside, we’ve updated the look with a long and lean riding jacket silhouette detailed in contrast trim. Paired with tonal riding boots in sumptuous leather, you will be ready to stride in style.


 Fabulously Folkloric: Another delight of the season: the wrap. Sumptuous embroidery in paisley motifs makes this wrap eye-catching and texturally tantalizing. Paired with of-the-moment fringe booties, you’ll be swept away by this look.


The Color Story: Fall is all about color. After a season of brights and pastels, we crave spice and pumpkin tones that celebrate the season of harvest. Pair with dark denim and boots that give the outfit an unexpected, playful feel.


 Minimalist ChicUnderstated yet decidedly chic, the tunic and tall boot pairing is a wardrobe must-have. Simply styled with subtle accents or layered with statement pieces, this look is infinitely versatile for fall.

full22Go for Baroque: Play up the romance of the season with flowing silhouettes, luxurious fabrics and swirling florals. Add a sexy touch with over-the-knee black boots and statement earrings for a decidedly dashing look.


Victorian Vogue: Florals are lovely any time of the year, and we love the surge in floral embroidery this fall season. Elegant against a dark backdrop, fall florals and rich colors in cozy fabrics will bring delight to the chilly landscape.
