The total fashion freedom which pairing boots with skirts affords is sublime, offering a thrilling opportunity to reach back into the early 90’s while stretching forward into 2013 and beyond. As every well-heeled, winter shoe-shopper knows, this season ushers in an abundance of boots, but rarely do we see real paradigm shifts. For the first time in a long time, those on whom the lens of stylish approbation is focused confirm a convincing air of free choice, serious style purpose, and witty good humor. Two things have the us all atwitter this season: the influx of grunge redux short boots with a masculine edge, and the confluence of this grunge-inspired style with fancy, modern pieces. We are at this moment besotted with a palette of black and white, realized in monochromatic pieces of luxe fabrics and textures, and appearing in irregular proportions. Think black-on-black sequins, wispy loose-weave knitwear, cropped tops, super maxi skirts, and rugged, muscly shoes. Jeffrey Campbell has a gorgeous selection of boots this season featuring red-blooded structure atop feminine heights, all of which look stunning with skirts of every length. With its turned-out, crenellated, black faux-shearling cuff, and throwback Grandma bootie lace-up suede upper, the ‘Milton‘ by Jeffrey Campbell is an easy favorite. Buckle detailing adds an element of punk to the boots’ already saturated selection of style references; in the ‘Milton‘ 90’s grunge hallmarks, “lumberjack chic,” and “prairie propriety” converge. A 2 and 3/4″ wooden heel lends sex appeal and makes this a wonderful ankle boot to pair with short skirts. #lucky #trends #outfitideas

It’s all about great boots for us right now, and there are lots of trends to pick from this season. While we’re sort of over the moto look, we’re really digging the equestrian vibe. Luckily, we found a 90’s grunge, moto boot that will still make you look ready to jump on a horse’s back! Meet the ‘Logan‘ bootie, a new addition to B.F.T. by Barefoot Tess, and available in black, dark brown, and natural tan. The dark brown is our current favorite since it seems to bridge the gap between trends easily and makes for a very versatile boot. Pair it with tights and an awesome, 70’s inspired floaty dress for a boho look, or dress it down with skinny denim in a bright color like red or cobalt, adding a fresh, thick-knit white sweater. Welcome to your fall wardrobe!
