As a contributor to Paris a la Mode and part of Big Day Downtown Halifax, I am now the proud owner of these fabulous Charleston Riding Boots. Read more about my adventure at http://parisalamode.com/2011/09/are-you-ready-boots-start-walkin/.
How do you wear riding boots you might ask?
The obvious answer is on your feet, but with what?
The first thing that probably comes to mind is skinny jeans, or boot cut denims, but I’d like to suggest stepping out of the expected and think about pairing your boots with dresses, tights, stockings, and maybe even some corduroy pants. Check out these looks I’ve compiled to give you some inspiration:
Love this causal day time look with pairing ridding boots with simple black tights, and a jersey dress. This over-sized printed scarf is perfection with the similar color detail that is picked up in the boots; she keeps it simple everywhere else to balance. Well done.
Switch things up and pair your riding boots with thick gray cable knit stockings, and a flowy dress or skirt for an updated feminine boho look.
So this post contains a lot of tights, and the important thing to remember is Tights are NOT pants! Unless you are heading to a dance class or staring a Jane Fonda work out video: YOU NEED PANTS or at least a long enough shirt to cover your bottom. This lady below does a great job or keeping it balanced with this over-sized teal sweatshirt, and skinny belt.
I love the colors she’s chosen to pair together here, the vibrant teal and rich chocolate brown are heavenly, and the belted sweater is great for showing off her lovely shape.
