re-souL Iris Bronze Metallic Boot

 

It used to be that the cool kids wore silver, never gold. Then, something changed. Now, it’s all gold all the time. There was also a day when a classic black boot was your go-to. That time has passed. Now, it’s all about the unexpected. Whether you opt for a neutral, like green or blue, or try a surprising heel, it’s time to dive into a statement boot that is shockingly practical. For me that boot is metallic and the Iris from the re-souL collection is just right. The color is more subdued, which is just right when you are searching for something cool and not overly flashy. Of course, it’s crazy functional for walking up and down the hills of Seattle. So, it’s clear you need this boot. Now, how to style it?

I’m all about embracing your personal style and ensuring that your clothes communicate who you are. So, let’s begin with your very own Iris boots in bronze. Feel free to layer a leather jacket over top with any of these options or wear them sans cover-up.

 

1. With a compelling casual dress. I like neutrals with metallics and this cozy option is edgy and functional. Layer it up with leather leggings or distressed jeans or try it solo.

2. With a super feminine dress. There’s nothing like the balance of hard and soft. A girly piece paired with sturdy, hip boots is a timeless approach. Elevate the look with metallic boots instead of black and feel your fashion-forward self come through.

3. With a long vest. A great strategy to simplify your life is to find boots that work well with a specific coat or vest. That way you can finish off every outfit effortlessly. Even the most basic of outfits is much more stylish with the right shoes and outerwear. If you find styling vests challenging, feel free to check out my post on the subject.

re-souL buffy boot

 

 

I’ve always been a fan of green and blue shoes. They behave as neutrals when it comes to fashion. As long as the intensity of the color works with the rest of the hues in your outfit, you are good to go. After all, the stem never clashes with the flower and the sky complements everything. So, when I discovered that Maggie had chosen to include blue and green boots in the fall re-souL collection, I was thrilled. And, let’s face it, shorter boots are right on trend.

When I was offered the chance to offer up my suggestions for, “What to Wear Wednesday, ” I quickly discovered how effortlessly the pieces in the shop work together. So, I started with accessories that I love together, then set out to find clothes to complete the look. In fact, when creating outfits, I often suggest the clients start with one piece and work from there. For me, I tend to start with the shoes.
For the woman who wants to look chic and put-together, this dress brings it all together. Looking to inspire confidence in others? A winter white coat does that better than anything. Because the boots are luxurious and have a reasonable heel, the boots keep it all effortless and functional.Too fancy? A pair of skinny jeans and a basic tee work just as well with this foursome of goodness from re-souL.
