How to Pick the Perfect Pair of Fall Boots for your Lifestyle and Body Type
Women anxiously await the cooler months of fall so that they can pull out and dust off all of their favorite go-to boots. Women love boots because they protect the foot from the elements and they look chic and polished with any outfit. With the extensive number of styles and trends available each season, it can be difficult to choose the best look and fit to suit your lifestyle and body type. Here is a quick guide to help you find the perfect pair this fall.
Ankle boots are, arguably, the universal choice of boots for most women. They wear like a comfortable shoe but perform like a boot. A pair of ruched suede boots with a low heel and a slightly pointed toe is perfect for those with a Bohemian personality. If you love trends and taking fashion risks, a pair of stiletto ankle boots with fringe, fur or metallic studs is the perfect choice for you for fall. A classic pair of Western-style or shoetie ankle boots is practical for the office or with denim. Ankle boots are the ideal choice for women with larger or more athletic calves. It can be challenging to find the perfect fitting pair of tall boots if you have a more defined calf.
Tall Shaft Boots
Tall boots are the most classic of the bunch. Women who love wearing dresses, tights, leggings and skirts in the fall will love the appeal of a great pair of classic tall boots. They also add balance and dimension to women with very thin legs and calves. When shopping, pick a well-constructed pair in leather, and make sure they have gussets for ease of movement and added comfort.
The pointed toe, embossing, low heel height, and pull-on style appeal to the modern cowgirl and fashionista alike. These year-round boots look great under pants and jeans in the winter, and they look just as cute with a white, eyelet skirt and a chambray shirt in the spring. Cropped shorts in Kelly green or royal blue look amazing with a basic white tank and a pair of cowboy boots in the summer. Buy a great pair from a trusted name brand in Western apparel and footwear, and they will last you for many years. Ladies with larger legs and calves love how their legs and calves look in a fierce pair of western boots.
Happy shopping darlings!
A Few of our Favorite Things!
Nothing says 'relaxed comfort' like sheepskin boots. And while Australia is the birthplace of the ugg boot —
which, by the way is the name for this type of boot in Oz — California was where they were put on the map. All it took was one enterprising Aussie surfer to stuff his suitcase with several pairs, show up on LA's prime surf spots and get his fledging business bought up by a major footwear player. The rest, as we know, is history: a look that is fashionably anti-fashion and devotees wearing boots year-round because they are simply the most comfortable thing imaginable.
The secret to sheepskin footwear lies in using the right kind of sheepskin. The best sheepskins, meaning those that have dense, yet soft to the touch wool, are from Australian Merino sheep. LAMO is proud to exclusively use only premium quality Australian sheepskins and Australian Merino wool.
I recently received a pair of LAMO Valerie clogs to try out. Lucky for me the weather here in the San Francisco area always cools down in the evenings, so I was able to give my new sheepskin clogs a good test run. Honestly, these are the most comfortable pair of shoes my pampered little tootsies have ever had the pleasure of wearing. These clog-style slippers feature a hardsole bottom that grips both indoors and out, and a suede body with stylish stitching. The Australian Merino Sheepskin lining snuggles your foot in total comfort. These clogs are guaranteed to cause to make you the most stylish girl on the block!
