Launched by an influencer or a street style shot, or on the catwalks of fashion weeks … trends come and go. There are several trends in bags for autumn-winter, but in terms of shoes, all fashion sources agree: in autumn-winter 2020-2021 we will absolutely not be able to do without a pair of red boots.
Like all original trends, however, red boots pose several styling problems for mere mortals: beautiful on top influencers, they risk being ridiculous on our feet once paired with everyday clothes.
How to wear red boots? Here are some general rules to avoid style slips:
The middle way is the right one
Neither killer toe and high heel like the already cult model by Balenciaga x Colette, nor kitten heel: the perfect red boots for everyday wear must have a comfortable square heel (no more than 5 cm).
The model is important
The boot’s socks version is definitely the most cool of the moment, but not all have the slender ankle. in this case, it is better to focus on a leather or suede model at the ankle. The cuissardes like those of Clare? Only for those with slim legs, regardless of height.
The wearable combinations
To wear red boots during the day you need to opt for simple and minimal outfits. Choose a suit or dark ankle-length trousers/jeans to be on the safe side (if you have any doubts, here you can consult the coolest jeans brands), which you will combine with a top or a white shirt. For a WOW effect, make them the protagonists of a total black or total white look. To avoid any fall in style, however, leave in the closet blouses with ruffles, printed dresses, tights, and dresses with shiny applications.
Color. The trend wants them to be bright red, which is also the most difficult red nuance to wear. If you don’t feel comfortable, choose a burgundy or brick red shade, which is easier to style.
