Inspiration Notebook: The Uptown Boot
By definition, The Uptown Boot is all about cool sophistication. With elongating strips along the inner and outer leg, and along the boot top trim, this flattering style can be subtle or statement making, depending on how you customize it. If you choose a solid colour, this knee-high boot is sleek and streamlined. Choose to colour-block, and you’ve added panache and personality to an everyday staple. Either way, they'll be accompanying you everywhere this season.
We took to Polyvore to style some outfits you might consider pairing with these gorgeous knee-high boots. First tip: don't be intimidated by colour-blocking! Above, we've paired our Sand Grey Leather with a soft Black Nubuck, and, although it may seem counterintuitive, the contrasting textures play down the bold colour contrast. What you're left with is something you can integrate into everyday wear. Next, add some colour to your wardrobe: bright reds, blue jeans and here, a black and white knit coat with a waterfall-style edge. Toffee leather literally goes with everything--from black to varying shades of brown and bright pops of colour. A cooler shade than our mainstay Kaki leather, a solid Toffee boot is highlighted by the now-subtle vertical lines on The Uptown (in fact, because of the strips, our very own Customer Insights Associate, Breanne, is a big advocate for this style on a shorter frame). Pair these knee-high boots with a fitted black dress, an oatmeal-coloured cape and furry ear-muffs, and embrace the beauty of winter. Essential Black and Royal Purple Nubuck might be your best kept secret to making knee-high boots formal. Whether you're sipping cocktails at a Christmas work party or celebrating New Year's Eve with your loved ones, this outfit will most certainly add some sparkle. (Looking for a little more edge?
