Inspiration Notebook: The Classic Riding Boot

2-minute read

The Classic Riding Boot by Poppy Barley Made to Measure - Illustration

An equestrian-inspired boot that will never go out of style, The Classic Riding Boot laid the foundation for Poppy Barley's first-ever collection of made to measure boots. As the original, inaugural, pioneering style, we naturally feel pretty sentimental about it. Rooted in function and rich with history, this enduring flat boot promises to be the cornerstone of your day-off or day-on style routine. The luxurious leather, rounded almond toe and feminine curves are on-trend yet timeless, and depending on how you style your boots and customize them--with your choice leather colour, half-moon or square buckle, and tarnish--they'll speak volumes about your unique tastes.

To get you inspired, we've taken to Polyvore to show you the versatility of The Classic Riding Boot. Above, a chambray shirt, geometric-printed skirt, and rich, statement coat is off-set with the smooth and subdued tone of our Toffee leather--one of our newest colour options--and the sharp parallel lines of the Square Buckle in Silver. The Classic Riding Boot in Sand Grey by Poppy Barley Made to Measure Think Jackie O. or Charlotte York (hey, SATC fans!), The Classic Riding Boot in Sand Grey (pictured here with a Gold Half-Moon Buckle) has elegance and class written all over it. Don't be afraid to wear your boots to a dressy affair: some of us (especially us) live in cold and wintery climates and knee-high boots are entirely acceptable when styled with the right amount of flair. Try a wrap dress, lace tights and a delicate-chain purse--and don't forget your famous sunnies. The Classic Riding Boot in Chocolate Brown by Poppy Barley Made to Measure From last night's winter soiree to tomorrow morning's day of errands, our boots are super comfortable and can easily be dressed down. Here, we've paired The Classic Riding Boot in Chocolate Brown (sans hardware) with grey skinny jeans, a cargo jacket, a cozy-knit hat, and a neutral, printed sweater. You'll never want to take your Poppy Barleys off.
