Parsing Trends: Re-Boot

All kinds of boots hit the runways for Spring - lace-ups, mid-calf, ankle, combat, block-heel, lug-sole, stiletto, and on and on! The point is to have a bit of a heavier, grounded look to go with some of the more ethereal ruffles, chiffons, and lace details of the season. Boots with dresses are totally a thing again.

This is a great way to get more wear out of those boots and get into your Spring dresses while it's still too chilly outside to bare your feet. However, as with every trend, some people will appreciate this look more than others. 

Positive Connotations

  • Rebellious
  • Tough
  • Ready-for-anything
  • Open-Minded
  • Creative
  • Relaxed/Casual/Rugged
  • Unconventional

Negative Connotations

  • Defensive
  • Aggressive
  • Un-relatable/Weird
  • Unaware ("What season does she think it is??")
  • Rough/Unrefined
  • Unpredictable/A Wild Card

If you want to wear boots with your dresses this Spring without looking too tough and unconventional, look for boots with refined details like a slim heel, sleek fit, and minimal embellishments. 

Any takers this season? Does wearing boots with dresses make you feel like a Western heroine galloping into the sunset... or do you feel more like you haven't gone shoe shopping for the new season yet? Do you like this look on others but not for yourself?
