One of the oldest footwear ever created by men are boots. They were a very practical choice for footwear and were designed to offer as much protection as possible to the wearer. Today they have evolved into a style and they look absolutely spectacular. There are so many types of boots available today that it is easy to get lost in just thinking of ways to wear them. Also, with the advent of the smart casual trend, there is simply so much that you can do with them. So today we are going to take a look at some awesome ways to wear boots.
Let us first begin with how to wear the three main types of boots that are available in the market.
- Chelsea Boots: By design, these are a slim fit and sleek looking pair of footwear. Although originally crafted from fine leather, today you can get your hands on multiple iterations of them. They also come in a wide selection of colours and textures as well. This is the reason why we have decided to talk about this first. Anything ranging from a full suit to a pair of slim fit denim jeans worn with a jacket works with them. For a classic look, try black with an all-black men’s suit. If you are a fan of brown, especially in suede, try them on with a pair of blue denim jeans and knitwear or a plaid shirt. Make sure to roll up your denim trouser from the bottom to show off your shoes.
- The Desert Boots: Your wardrobe is simply incomplete without a great pair of Desert boots. They are a quintessential men’s footwear piece and they give the Chelsea a run for their money in the versatility department. They are lightweight which makes them an absolute pleasure to wear during the warmer months of the year. Desert boot are best worn with denim trousers and Chinos. These boots look the best when working with a bomber jacket or a pullover on top of well-fitting denim trousers.
- Work Boots: If you are a fan of those thick lace up with the rugged looking sole, then these are an absolute essential. Work boots get their rugged looks from the fact that they were designed to survive the harsh work environments that they were built for during the 1930s. Today there are many variations ,the most popular iterations of them being combat and motorcycle boots. Wear these with a leather jacket for the best style combination that you could come up with when wearing them.
How your boots fit you, defines the effectiveness of your fashion. New boots must feel snug when you wear them on socks. Any signs of discomfort mean that they are too tight. If you can fit one finger into the back behind your heel and the boot, it means they are too loose. With something sturdy like work boots, for example, it is important to get the fit right because they may lead to a lot of discomforts due to their weight.
