The slouchy boot trend is going strong for fall. Tons of designers featured them on the runways, so celebrities and models have made them the first shoe they reach for when they’re looking for something chic and casual. Here are all the reasons why you need to pick up a pair, like, today. You’ll want to wear them with practically every outfit when the weather finally cools down.
1. They Were All Over the Fall Runways
From Marc Jacobs to Celine to Isabel Marant, slouchy boots were seen everywhere for fall. If you get a pair yourself, you just might look like you belong on the runways like a famous supermodel. This trend may not go with everything in your closet like your trusty pair of sneakers does, but because tons of different designers used them in their shows, you’ll have no problem finding inspiration for ways to wear them.
2. They Look Great With Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans are my go-to pants when the temps turn cooler. They go with every type of top, fit perfectly in all the right places, and they’re so easy to wear with slouchy boots. I’m not usually a boots girl, but if you’re looking for an easy way to update your outfit, then this trend is the way to go.
3. You Can Wear Them With A Dress
I always have a hard time letting go of my summer clothes when the weather turns. It’s annoying continually having to find new things to wear for the fall. Slouchy boots will help you make all those dresses and skirts, more cold-weather friendly. It’s just a bonus that they keep your legs warm, so tights are optional!
4. Are Baggy Clothes More Your Style? Slouchy Boots Go With That, Too
A general rule is that you shouldn’t wear baggy everything or you risk losing your figure, but rules (especially in fashion) are meant to be broken. Slouchy boots look just as good with baggy jeans as they do skinny ones, so girls who are looking for comfort over style can rest easy knowing they can do both. If you want cool-girl vibes, stuff your boots over your jeans and pair with a loose jacket and gigantic scarf to look like an off-duty model.
5. They Come In Tons Of Different Patterns And Colors
Whether you want to match your slouchy boots to your outfit or use them as a statement accessory, there’s plenty of styles out there that will match whatever outfit you want to put on. You can go for a streamlined look by wearing a matching trench coat and boots, or look funky with a zebra print pair.
6. They Make Every Outfit Look More Casual
Slouchy boots prevent everything from looking *too* put together. With a dress, they look more boho, and with jeans, they look chic but not fussy. You can wear these to class or work without feeling like you’re overdressed but know you still look bomb.
7. They Go With All The Fall Staples
Oversize sweaters, jean jackets, long coats, tailored pants, slouchy boots go with them all. The fact that they’re super warm and comfortable is a huge plus. These boots are basically made for fall fashion, so once you slide them on, they just may become your favorite shoe for the entire season.
8. Every Body Type Can Wear Them
Boots that are super stiff and tight don’t always fit around curvy girls calves. With slouchy boots, the issue of whether or not they’ll fit is never even a question. Whether you have super narrow calves or wider ones this trend will look good on you guaranteed!
9. They Come At All Different Price Points
It doesn’t matter if your budget is tight, this is one trend you can pull off without spending a ton of money. Of course, it’s nice to invest in a really good pair because they’ll last forever, but if you want them for just one season, you can get a pair at Target or even Walmart. You really can find them everywhere!
10. Not Into Heels? No Worries
I’m a tall girl, so I feel extra self-conscious about my height when I’m in a pair of boots, towering over everybody. Luckily, slouchy boots come in all different kinds of heights. So whether you’re short and looking for a boost, or super tall and want something flat to stomp around in, you can easily find a pair to fit your needs.
11. They’re Great For Traveling
Because slouchy boots look so good with a wide variety of outfits, they’re really the only boot you need for a chic getaway. I hate packing shoes when I travel, they’re always so bulky and take up way too much room in my suitcase. Wearing these boots means you get to save room for more clothes and beauty products, so having them as your only pair of shoes is the way to go.
12. You Don’t Have To Wear Tall Ones To Be On Trend
Sometimes tall boots are too fussy to deal with. Luckily, you can be right on trend with a pair that barely goes above your ankles. These are even easier to style than a taller pair, and they look more grungy. You can wear them the exact same ways you would wear other pairs of slouchy boots, so no need to put extra thought into it.
13. You Can Wear Them For Any Occasion
I love slouchy boots because you can wear them out to dinner, to the bars, or even just to class or the library. They make every outfit look better, and are so versatile that no matter where you wear them you’ll look good. They look super casual with a leather jacket and jeans, and more dressed up with a floral dress. You definitely won’t regret wearing them with anything!
