The falling leaves, cool air, and warm sunshine create a perfect mix for fashion lovers to step out of the house with a seasonally suited outfit. The right look helps reflect the time of year and makes you look great. But how do you mix and match your wardrobe staples into an outfit that is seasonal, eye-catching and comfortable?
The answer is with a set of killer footwear from Australia, well, Hobart in Tasmania to be precise. Blundstone boots, specifically their no nonsense footwear like the classic Chelsea Boots have been a go-to fashion item for both men and women for years, because they’re both functional and versatile.
They keep your feet warm when the temp starts to drop. We’ve put together some of our favourite autumn looks that are easy to make up with some basics that you’ll likely already have in the wardrobe. And with a brand making shoes and premium safety boots for over 150 years, you can have the faith that Blundstone deliver quality.
Rustic & Ready – Denim
When pairing your rustic brown Blundstone boots with jeans. First of all, the most important thing is to make sure your jeans are the right length. You want to be able to tuck them into your boots or roll them up so that they sit at the right length, so you’ll want to avoid jeans that are too long. After all, you want to show off your boots and having your jeans hang low over them isn’t a good look, unless intentional.
The type of jeans you wear is also key for the ideal fit. Slim or skinny-fit jeans look cool with chunky boots because you’ll get a nice silhouette from the combo. Next, pair your denim with a button-up shirt or a casual t-shirt, try to choose one in a darker colour so it doesn’t clash with the denim. If you’re wearing blue jeans, stay away from green and blue shirts. Blue and green should never be seen!… and Blue and blue is just a little boring.
Adventurous & Casual – Shorts
You may as well make the most of the remaining warm days during the fall. Many people dismiss shorts when putting outfits together with boots, but it can create a pretty fun look if you get it right. The number one tip for wearing shorts with boots is finding styles that compliment each other.
One go-to style of shorts to wear with Chelsea boots is the standard khaki shorts, you can also pick up cool military shorts or chino shorts to give off an adventurous look. Darker-coloured shorts look perfect with brown or black boots, while lighter-coloured shorts are great with sand, beige or grey-coloured boots. A pair of chunky socks that come above the boot are a quick way to give this outfit some interest.
Cosy & Cute – Leggings
Leggings and boots go together so well, they’re practically made for each other. The best leggings for wearing with boots are those made with a thicker fabric like fleece or wool. You can wear almost any style of leggings, grey will work well with brown boots.
Matching Black leggings with a nice pair of black boots will give off a strong look and pretty much any colour of leggings can be worn with brown boots, great for any casual look. A super quick outfit to get out the house in the morning!
Formal & Fun – Blazer
Blundstones might not be the first thing you think of when you think about going to events, dinner parties or art exhibitions. Though, if you pair these boots with a cool blazer and t shirt you have yourself a versatile outfit that will project interest into any situation. Roll up the sleeves on your blazer and wear loose fitting trousers, or cropped trousers for a chilled out look. Perfect for those chilly nights during autumn. Formal doesn’t have to be boring, do your own thing in suede boots!
Pretty & Tough – Long Skirt
Longer skirts or dresses are a great way to keep warm, but they can also look stylish when paired with boots. You’ll just want to pick a skirt or a dress that is long enough to cover the tops of your boots. Wearing a skirt with a tall pair of boots can be tricky, so it’s important to choose the right style of skirt and the right type of boots. Skirts that are knee-length or longer are best for wearing with tall boots.
Mini skirts are too short to cover the tops of the boots and will look awkward if you try to pair them with taller boots. Skirts with a straight hemline are best for pairing with tall boots, as you’ll want to avoid a hem that is too thick and will make the boots look awkward. Dresses work similarly to skirts, but you’ll want to make sure that the hemline is long enough to cover the tops of your boots. Straighter hemlines are best for pairing with boots, whereas flowy hemlines will make the boots look awkward.
Unique & Playful – Mix it Up
There are no hard and fast rules, this is fashion! Make sure you stay warm and dry on those colder and wet days, but other than that you can do whatever you like. Try different colour combinations and textures such as corduroy, or why not throw on a leather jacket?
The great thing about Blundstones is being able to mix and match, they’re supposed to be a casual and easy going addition to your wardrobe, so treat them like that. We hope this has given you some ideas to be creative with the way you wear your Blundstone boots, let us know if you have any other looks that you are a big fan of that can be worn with recognisable boot brands!
