Military Style is the biggest look of Fall 2010, so it’s not surprising that desert boots have come back around. This old-school style is one of the most current shoes of the season. If you like it, it’s definitely the time to wear it!
The most classic incarnation of the desert boot has the following characteristics:
- Rubber crepe sole
- Low rise
However, if that doesn’t work for you, there still might be a version that does. Some of the newer styles feature leather and stacked heels, so keep shopping until you find the right pair for your wardrobe. Check out a few options below:
As a petite, I’m always seeking elegance and height in my shoes, so this is a tough style for me. I like the Sam Edelman and indigo by Clarks versions, though, and could see myself wearing both of those.
This shoe pairs easily with jeans (skinny, bootcut, and straight-leg) and the new skinny cargo pant. If you’re more adventurous, you can try it with dresses and skirts as well. Just remember to keep the whole look balanced by pairing desert boots with more streamlined, tailored pieces.
