10 Ways to Wear Mid-Calf Boots
With spring around the corner, it is time to rejuvenate your closet, and we talk here not only about the clothes. Spring is a tricky time when it’s still too early to wear sandals, while high boots will look out of place in this warm weather. That’s when mid-calf boots come to the rescue. These wonderful boots are back and there are so many reasons to welcome them into our spring wardrobe. They come in all different shapes and styles and can be quite adaptable to whatever you are wearing. Choose heavy heel boots to wear with a maxi skirt, and ultra high stilettos if you work in the office. Go for cowgirl mid-calf boots when you feel like wearing jeans and rubber boots will be great for an outdoor festival. Yes, these boots are just perfect and below we will show you the best ways to incorporate them into your wardrobe.
- With a short dress.
This is one the most traditional ways to wear mid-calf boots. According to the old rule, these boots should be worn with a dress above your knees to visually elongate your legs and to create a nice balance between your top and your bottom. Wear mid-calf boots with any dress above your knees to emphasize that even though summer is not here yet, winter is definitely over, and you are ready to conquer the world.
- With skinny jeans.
Another way to rock these boots is to wear them tucked into your skinny jeans. Skinny jeans have their firm spot in almost everyone’s closet, so it’s a cool way to give them a new look without changing anything. Make sure the boots you choose to pair with your skinnies are not super wide and bulky to avoid giving your legs stick figure appearance. Rosie Huntington-Whitley wisely adds an extra layer to thin fabric to her outfit, thus creating a nice chilly spring day casual look.
- With boyfriend jeans.
Loose boyfriend jeans is a more casual way to wear calf-length boots. In such a way you can still see the whole boot, but the whole look is more relaxed and casual. Add a cross-shoulder bag, like Sarah Jessica Parker, and you are ready for an afternoon walk.
- With maxi skirt.
Mid-calf boots look great with a maxi skirt or dress. Choose heavier boots for this look. Heavy boots compliment feminine length and their slouchiness helps you stay on a more casual side, without looking more romantic than you wish.
- With a mini.
This is another variation of wearing calf-length boots with a short dress. Pairing them with a mini skirt lets you break your outfit into a few parts, thus creating a complicated look. Wear any mid-calf boots with a denim or fabric skirt for a sexy feminine style.
- With shorts.
Wear mid-calf boots with shorts if you are young and bold and are not afraid to make a statement. This look is very noticeable, though at the same time quite modest, as cowgirl boots with shorts look more decent than, for instance, shorts with platform sandals. If you want your legs to look longer, then go for higher-heeled boots, which will make you look so sexy.
- With leggings.
Boots with leggings are sometimes inseparable. If you want to add length to your legs, pair your boots with same-color leggings, like Ashley Tisdale does here. For girls who can boast long legs anyway, experiment with different colors and patterns to bring the best out of everything.
- Like a rock star.
Rock those boots by pairing them with a rock star outfit- a leather jacket and a mini skirt will do. This look is mild and can be interpreted in many different ways, so if you are ready to make a serious rock statement, try something bolder and use definitely more rocking accessories- mid-calf boots can handle all of it and more.
- With over the knee socks.
When it’s still chilly outside, you can easily wear mid-calf boots with over the knee socks, and in this case wear something short on top – a dress, a pair of shorts, or a mini skirt. No matter which style you will choose, this is a very fresh look. Over the knee socks are just made for these boots! They will keep your knees warm and your whole image distinct and memorable.
- To the office.
Yes, contrary to the popular belief, mid-calf boots can be used in an office environment, when chosen carefully. They can be higher than the ones Olivia Palermo have chosen, but in any business situation, the right business apparel matching the color of the boots will look just excellent.
These are 10 ways proving that there should be some place for mid-calf boots in any wardrobe, no matter which style you wear.
