Putting the best boot forward
Take inspiration from these divas who wore boots on their way to an award show in Macau
Popularised by actor Julia Roberts in the film, Pretty Woman, this style has always spelled out bold and sexy. While styling this look, one must be very careful not to go over the top. “For a daring look, pair your thigh high boots with shorts and balance the look with a voluminous top”, says designer Mandira Wirk.
Ankle length or chelsea boots
Evolved in the Victorian era for horse-riding, these boots have made it big at high-fashion stores and personal wardrobes. “Team them with a short dress for a risque look,” says shoe designer Rohan Arora. Our pick is cropped pants or knee-length skirts. Pair these with a loose shirt dress and a cool hobo bag.
Calf length cowboys
These are the most versatile of all styles and can be worn with a wide range of outfits. “Style them with fitted trousers or leggings for a rainy, windy evening or with a mini dress on a bright sunny day”, says designer Jenjum Gadi. Play around with style by going for cowboy boots and tassels adorned like Deepika.
Boots are now a hot favourite round the year, so know how to make them season ready. “For summer go for low-rise boots in a feminine cut”, says designer Jenjum Gadi,"opt for lighter fabrics, lace trimmings. Avoid leather, suede,” he adds.
