BLUE VELVET

Steve Madden High Ankle Boots,  Silence + Noise Faux Leather Jacket (similar here),  AGOLDE Skinny JeansSweater, Ear Crawler (similar here)

I’m not trying to be dramatic or anything, but I think I want to be buried in these boots when I die. I’ve actually never been that much of a shoe person; I have a strong liking for loafers and tend to shy away from vibrant colors or a heel higher than 2 inches. But when I heard the Hallelujah chorus (read: saw the sale sign) that fateful day as I walked into Steve Madden, I knew. I love velvet, I love this shade of blue, I love the high ankle, and the sturdy block heel is enough to help me get over my height hang-up.

If you’re going to wear jeans with high ankle boots, I’m of the opinion that they need to be cropped. Tucking or rolling a standard pair of jeans doesn’t do these boots justice. In my eyes, a cropped cut right at the top of the boot is the cleanest look. I grunged it down a bit with distressed denim and my favorite faux leather jacket. And I’m always an advocate for pairing jewel tones. Just because the boots are a statement piece on their own, doesn’t mean you have to default to white or timid tones for the rest of your outfit. I opted for this gold sweater because it plays well as another jewel tone without taking any power from the boots.
