If you think I’m inconsistent reporting on big trends one day and trends that are over the next, you’re right. I am what we (my friends and I) like to call ‘all over the place’. Today, my so called condition took me to trends that we love, aka RED BOOTS! And that is with all the capitals and drumrolls in the world, because… you cannot escape (who the hell would want to?) this trend in the next year no matter what you do. It is the best thing fashion has given us so far. Say it with me people: red boots.
I need a moment to cry. #happytears
Red boots are to 2018 what the sun is to summer: hot, beautiful, and makes everything look better.
Designers have shown red boots – heeled and thigh high, or ankle style with kitted heels, block heels or stilettos – all throughout their collections for this fall. But since fall only lasts 2 seasons (autumn and winter) I don’t think it’ll ever be enough for sartorials to showcase their red boots love for only a few months. Hence the stretching out of this boots trend way into spring 2018. Talk about a great outcome.
So for 2018 spring trends – we’ll be witnessing a lot of red boots worn with jeans and a tee – like a statement piece, OR blending them so cool into a boho fashion kinda look, when paired with those flirty summer dresses or retro jumpsuits. Perfection.
Why red boots is the best trend so far?
1). They look amazing. So fear not the ‘puss-in-boots’ analogies or jokes. You’re fashion. Everyone else is an ignoramus.
2). They’re both classic and statement. Red will always be a fantastic choice in style, and boots come in a billion designs, so if you want a pair of classic red boots – staple worthy – go for a pair of stiletto red ankle boots, or even block heel ankle boots. For statement pick over the knee red boots style.
3). Red boots go with everything. They’re like black boots only cooler, and for cooler people, for daring fashion soldiers who ain’t scared to walk the fashion walk. But like all trends they too will most likely have an expiry date. For example, just last week as this red boots through was crawling more more and into my sartorial head… I Facebook stumbled upon yet another Jenner inspired trend #eyeroll – as Kendall Jenner was supposedly seen in what will be or is the boot of 2018 – which was… attention people… a pair of white boots. Pointy toe, ankle cut, kitten heel an all – just like its massive red boots trend over here.
So… that’s that for trends per se. But don’t tell anyone. Let’s just pretend this red boot will last forever and ever and ever and ever.
And to put a pin in the why Q above… a great trend is one that stands out, yet can live on on on over time without losing its charm or that sexy je ne sais quois it used to have. QED. #redboots
How to wear red boots?
The title pretty much sums it all up, and if you put this next to there’s no wrongs in today fashion you could actually wear red boots on your head and get away with it.
For the conservative lot out there, who wear boots as shoes still… you can go on wearing them as such because they look damn good.
Red boots look great with denim and all red outfits. It’s their best best best combo in the world.
Blue jeans, white shirt or chunky turtleneck, red boots with block heels, and one of these cool coats that are fab for winter 2018.
Another great outfit tip for red boots is to just add them onto any outfit you’re wearing, be it colourful, be it weird, funky, elegant, office… it will be that eclectic detail that will either pop out or bring everything together. Either way you can’t go wrong.
