Its a new year and if you’re like me, you want a new look for 2018. I’m seeking new proportions for the new year, even when it comes to casual staples like black leather and denim. To add a little drama to an otherwise casual outfit, try white boots for winter. That’s right. You can wear them even if you are over 40. Here’s how to properly wear white boots this winter.
I’m crazy about this Alexander McQueen black leather moto jacket. The belt at the waist gives it slimmer proportion than a regular oversize moto jacket and it works perfectly with high waisted cropped jeans, which happens to be my favorite style of denim at the moment. I recommend them for everyone and if you don’t already own a pair – get on!. They showcase your shoes and booties so why not shake things up this winter with a pair of bright white boots?
How to Wear White Boots
There’s no huge secret to wearing white boots, simply pretend they are black boots. Hold your head up high and be a little brave. Yes, they will be noticed. If you love them you will make them work! Since white is a neutral color they will go with all other colors, prints and fabrics but you may want to keep the colors rich and stay away from neon brights.
High Low Fashion Over 40
You can invest in this amazing Alexander McQueen belted leather biker jacket for $4,995 that also unzips at the wait to create yet another look, or save a bundle and get this Neiman Marcus Leather Collection peplum jacket for only $371.
Try these Alexander Wang Cult cropped high-rise straight-leg jeans for $265 or you may like these Mossimo™ High-rise flare crop jeans from Target for $20.98.
I’m literally obsessed with white boots. They have come on strong this season and there are a lot of selections in stores right now. If you’re going to get white boots they need to be of good quality, whether they are high or low priced. Cheap white boots will look like a costume. You may like these Calvin Klein Metal-Tipped Haircalf Ankle Boots for $1,995 or go with smooth white leather (for one quarter of the price) with these Barneys New York Lula Leather Ankle Boots, $425.
Top off this look with a fun pop of color and texture like this Diane von Furstenberg Soiree Top Handle Cross Body Bag for $448 or go low with this My Accessories Faux Fur Navy & Orange Stripe Clutch Bag from ASOS for $24.
Now that I’ve given you the high-priced and low priced pieces for this look, the choice is yours. Take your pick of how much you want to spend or mix and match.
