STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Riding Boots Sans Equestrian Status

This Fashionista has put together the perfect fall outfit by pairing multiple trending styles of the season. Working from the top to the bottom she starts with a fedora, scarf, a sheer and flowing long-sleeve blouse, some arm candy, a slouchy bag, leggings and riding boots.

The fedora, traditionally worn by men in the between the 1920s and 1950s, has become more popular for women and are available in many different materials and colors. Fedoras are great for those days you want to look trendy, but may not have time to wash or style your hair. Change your hairstyle when wearing fedora hats. Try your hair down, in a low bun/ponytail or in a long side braid. When buying a fedora, it is important to choose a color that will work best with your wardrobe. It’s nice to have a white/black fedora and also a brown/beige one to pair with different color schemed outfits. This Fashionista choose a brown color scheme for her ideal fall outfit including a beautiful burnt orange blouse to complement the fall leaves.

As the temperatures continue to drop, it’s nice to have a selection of long-sleeve blouses for the fall. You can try them in different materials, sheer being my favorite. Sheer blouses can be dressed up or dressed down, and look great in bold prints or polka dots. When wearing sheer blouses, remember to buy them a little oversized in order to hide your undergarments. When it gets even colder, you can always throw on a blazer over a blouse. This Fashionista choose to wear leggings with her top, but it would also look great with a pair of dark skinny jeans.

Extra fall tip: stock up on those leggings. They can be worn with lots of different outfits, but tend to not last very long without a small snag or hole.

Moving down to the bottom of this Fashionista’s ideal fall outfit, she pairs her leggings and brown color theme with a pair of flat riding boots. You don’t have to be an equestrian to pull off riding boots. They come in a range of colors and lengths, and can be paired with almost any fall outfit. Dresses, skirts or pants—riding boots always stick out. Wear your boots with tight-fitted bottoms (skinny jeans, leggings or tights) in order to elongate your legs and show off the long lines of tall boots.

Lastly, don’t forget to accessorize. Decorate yourself with some arm candy, throw everything you could possibly need into a bottomless slouchy bag, put on a scarf and you’re ready to go!
