Brown Boots Will Make Your Jeans Pop

One of my favorite things to wear with jeans: boots. Nothing feels better or more right. Luckily, it’s officially boot season. The best time of  year! Walking around the streets in Nolitia, one of the things I noticed that there were an awful lot of women wearing riding boots, mostly brown and with skinny jeans tucked in. It’s the perfect look to get in the spirit of autumn. I’ve always been partial to brown boots because they warm up pretty much any color you pair them up with, especially when it comes to blue denim. Notice how the brown truly compliments the blue denim? It brings out the richness of the colors and textures of the outfit. Personally, I’m in love with capes this season, this one she’s wearing is similar to the Nanette Lepore Get a Clue Cape.

Here I caught this lovely lady walking her bike as she was drinking coffee. Don’t you love multitasking? One of the things about black boots is that they can be visually heavy when wearing lighter colors. Here she’s wearing brown boots with a pair of light gray jeans, similar to the J Brand Silverlake Skinny Jeans. Even though she’s wearing a black coat, the brown boots kind of act as the ‘color’ in the outfit. Brown boots can help keep your lighter colored summer jeans in the wardrobe rotation throughout the year.

The black pea coat is great, and one of those classics you can wear year after year. I have a pea coat that saved my life last year, as it was the perfect anecdote to the puffy jackets so many other people wore during the winter. Luckily mine was warm enough and held up even in New York and Chicago. This lady is pretty much wearing what I’ll be wearing for the next few months!

    Oh man, I need to get a pair of brown boots. Love the warm look of brown boots. I have a closet of black boots and they’ve just not been feeling right. Now I know why.

    Haha, it’s always good to have both. Black boots are indeed very handy. I love them both!

    I am loving brown boots with jeans right now. I just bought a slouchy suede pair from a local vintage store and I can’t stop wearing them. The brown really does add a warmth and richness to the denim that you just don’t get with black.

    Nice pix. I’m semi-convinced to try brown 😉

    As I was walking around yesterday in my brown riding boots, it was impossible not to notice how many of girls were, too! They are such a staple this time of year in Portland. The good news is that everyone wears them differently and they look great in so many ways.
