How To Style White Boots
For the past few years, we’ve been seeing a lot of white boots. Granted, when I first saw this trend, it reminded me too much of the 70’s, and I didn’t know if it fit my aesthetic. Then I picked up an inexpensive pair of white booties a few years ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Now you can see almost every fashion-forward girl, influencer and celebrity style them on the regular. I know a lot of people think they “can’t pull it off”, but if you wear white sneakers on the daily, it’s really no different. Although over-the-knee boots may be slightly harder to style than booties, white boots have proven to be the perfect blank canvas for just about any outfit, 365 days of the year.
Let’s start with the “safest” and easiest way to style them, white booties and jeans. In theory, you can wear any colour wash you like, but light wash denim looks best. Its low contrast between the jean and boots compliments the white perfectly. If you’re booties hit below the ankle, I suggest looking for a jean length that will hit just below the bootie to ensure no skin is showing. This will ensure a long, lean leg line. If you’re booties are above the ankle, you can opt for a shorter hemline to play off the heel height.
The long dress continues to be a street-style go-to for any fashionista. Whether you’re rocking a maxi skirt with a basic tee on the weekend or a floor-length dress for the office, a white ankle boot will look perfect with both. The idea is to have the bootie peeping out from beneath the fabric to create just enough visual interest to keep them guessing.
On days when you want to wear your mini-skirts, but there’s still snow on the ground, you might enjoy my personal fave, the white over-the-knee boot and mini-skirt combo. It’s comfy, cozy, while still being incredibly sexy. Ideally, you want to leave a small space between the hem of the skirt and the beginning of the boot. If you want to keep it casual and weekend appropriate, look for an over-the-knee boot with a flat or lower heel. This allows you to create a sportier, modern vibe, whereas a slightly higher heel is dressier. Either way, a mini skirt and sweater is perfect for chiller days when you don’t want to deal with pants.
Another way to style white over-the-knee boots is with pants. Of course, they will need to be skinny enough to be tucked in. This will really help to showcase your legs, without showing too much skin. Even if you’re rocking a basic sweater or tee, there’s something incredibly sexy about knee-high boots. You can make it dressy with a flowy blouse or keep it business appropriate with a blouse and fitted blazer. For weekend, you can dress it down with skinny jeans and a chunky knit sweater or turtleneck. Just remember to create balance. Tighter bottoms require a loser top.
