Boots are basically all I can think about right now, especially with all the great trend pieces coming our way for fall. (I’ve spent a lot of time online shopping these last few weeks—part of the job, I swear!) There’s that ’80s-style “my mom had a dress like that” trend I’m super into, as well as the Western-inspired touches and animal prints currently flooding my IG feed. I wanted to show you how my brain has been processing all these amazing new arrivals the last few weeks—and how I’d pair them with three of my favorite boot styles from SOREL. Consider your fall outfit rotation officially set.
I imagine 1997 Julia Roberts wearing a belted leather jacket like this one on a crisp fall day in NYC (complete with skinny sunglasses). To re-create her tailored vibe, a crisp button-down and straight-leg jeans are all you’ll need. Layer on the leather, and incorporate a touch of ’80s (see: pendant earrings) to make it feel extra special. I’ll be wearing this with the wedge lace-up boots to give my ensemble that extra oomph.
Animal print: Get used to seeing it, because it’s so hot right now. Leopard print is a favorite of mine, so I’m really excited it’s back in action for F/W 18. I’ll be styling this wrap dress with lace-up moto boots to give it a little London edge. Finish with statement gold earrings and a faux-croc bucket bag for an on-trend mixed-print look that would make Cher Horowitz jealous.
I’m a fall girl, and the thought of finally getting to wear a cozy sweater is honestly making me giddy. For a fun, comfortable weekend look, I’m going for a lighter color palette, opting for these Chelsea boots with wide-leg jeans and a muted pink cowl-neck sweater. I’ll also be attempting to pull off this belt bag as a crossbody like all the cool kids.
Off To The Countryside
If the mood strikes on gloomy day and I want to look like I’m low-key wealthy (read: off to spend the weekend in the country), I’ll be opting for plaids and nubby textures. I’ll pair a classic collared knit with an uneven-hemmed plaid skirt and add in these wedge lace-up boots.
And finally, the most classic look of all (and the one I basically live in): a trench with fantastic cropped jeans. For this look, I’ll be reaching again for those white SOREL moto boots and accessorizing with a chic beaded handbag. (We keep spotting the latter on the coolest Scandi girls.) From there, I’ll pull on my trench—bonus points for an oversize, relaxed fit—and leave it unbuttoned.
