Boot season is almost here, and high on my must-have list is slouchy boots. This shoe style is having a serious moment – and although endlessly chic on my favorite celebrities and street style stars, styling them in real life can be rather tricky. Luckily, with a few outfit formulas handy, you’ll never have to think about how to pull them off. Today, I’ll be sharing five foolproof ways to style my new favorite slouchy boots. I recently snagged this pair by Marc Fisher from Nordstrom and it’s even better in person. The super soft suede delivers the perfect amount of slouch while the stiletto heel and pointed toe silhouette elevates any ensemble. If you’re on the hunt for your own pair, Nordstrom has several styles for every budget, including this one for under $200 and this designer pair. On top of that, you can find all the wardrobe essentials you need to create a killer look. Scroll on for more styling inspiration.
1. Oversized Sweater & Leggings
My ideal fall outfit is equal parts edgy, effortless and feminine. Nothing epitomizes that uniform like leggings and a supersized sweater. Throw slouchy boots into the mix and you have the ultimate effortlessly chic look. I love that you can switch it up between basic, faux leather and high-shine leggings for a different effect every time. I decided to go with my trusty patent leather leggings (here) to up the chic factor. Then, this Free People sweater was an easy choice. The tunic itself feels like a warm blanket and the cable knit adds a beautiful texture to an otherwise basic look.
2. Skinny Pants & Oversized Jacket
Slouchy boots can take on any aesthetic. It all comes down to your outerwear choice. For instance, you can take on a modern vibe by pairing it with pieces that are sleek and tailored, like a boxy blazer and skinny trousers. They’re also incredible with skinny jeans and an oversized bomber jacket if you prefer an edgier look. Other jacket styles you can’t go wrong with are trench coats and menswear-inspired coats.
3. Miniskirt & Knit Top
You can always keep things classic with a miniskirt and turtleneck top combo. Adding in slouchy boots gives the look a trend-forward flair. Since miniskirts are another hot fall item, you’ll have no problem finding your ideal fit. I rounded up some of my favorite styles that Nordstrom currently has in stock.
4. Fall Minidress
I’ll always have a soft spot for bohemian dresses – and no shoe style looks better with these frocks than slouchy boots. Billowy minidresses in natural earth tones and patterns look instantly grounded and chic with scrunchy boots. Nordstrom has just the selection of frilly dresses you need now.
5. Dress Shorts, Tights & Sweater
For a look that makes a statement, consider wearing slouchy boots with dress shorts, tights and a cozy blouse. Suede boots, like the pair I’m wearing, against chunky knits and leather offer sumptuous textures that feel just right for the colder seasons. It also makes for a fun, playful look when you’re going out at night.
