A Slouch In Your Step

I've been doing some research on shoes for my Fashion Home and Accessories class. As I've been doing this, I've noticed that slouch boots seem to be very popular right now. With menswear-inspired looks being in, these sloppy yet stylish boots fit in perfectly on the list. Slouch boots also go with the western-inspired fashions that are supposed to be big for Spring this year. I think these boots are really cool so I decided to feature some of my finds in this blog.

These slouchy boots would look great with a skirt/dress and a pair of thick tights. You can also wear them with a pair of jeans and tuck the bottoms of the jeans into the boots. To get a menswear-inspired look with these boots, grab a pair of ripped or loose-fitting jeans, a boyfriend cardigan and a fedora hat. For a western-inspired look, grab a plaid button-down shirt, a fringe purse, a denim skirt with a braided belt, and a cowboy or straw hat. I hope these ideas inspire you to try out some different looks with slouch boots. Tell me if you have any more ideas on how to wear slouched boots. Also let me know if there are any other boot trends you would like me to write about. E-mail me at Charmed42787@gmail.com or send me a message through myspace.
