Pirate Bootie!

Catching a glimpse of Meghan Markle’s outfit at the Royal Holiday, I was inspired to jump on the footwear trend of the moment—slouchy boots.

This style – last seen in the early 2000s – is back and bigger than ever as the season’s biggest shoe trend. Major designers, including Saint Laurent, Tibi, and Victoria Beckham (who was also seen wearing the trend, styled to perfection) sent them down the runway with their fall looks, many of which featured skinny jeans. Although slouchy boots work well with longer skirts and dresses, they look best paired with skinny jeans because they’re roomy and provide a flattering proportional contrast to the slim denim.

Boots are the essential go-to when dressing for fall and winter. Try this former fashion favorite to add to your current wardrobe. I found these Manolo Blahnik boots for under $100, which is the best way to wear a boot trend … at a great price!

Try culottes. First spotted for fall, this fashion trend is still going strong for spring and one that you can pull off! This pant that hits at the calf looks like a skirt but is actually a trouser. And you can find it in various fabrics and textures. High-end brand Tibi has beautiful and original culottes – but you don’t have to pay high-end prices to own a pair. I didn’t want to invest in culottes until I saw this pair at Zara for $60. And now I want to wear them all the time!

How would I style culottes? Since the pants are on the wide side, I suggest pairing them with a slim-fitting top and heel. And don’t forget to accessorize!

My outfit: culottes, Zara; top, Alice + Olivia; sandals Coach; and of course, pearls!
