Boot up!

boots-0102With the days getting cooler, boots are definitely a style staple. Parisian’s collection mixes utilitarian chic with edgy style.


Because boots have become part of our fashion mainstream only recently, it’s a challenge to wear them nonchalantly. Parisian offers tips:


The knee-high boot. Build your look from the ground up with this major statement piece. When you’re craving for some drama, this classic boot length looks best with knee-length skirts, oversized sweaters, or shirt dresses.


The bootie. This abbreviated style makes your legs the star all year round. You’ll get maximum impact by pairing it with bare legs and shorter hemlines. When the weather becomes cooler, think long and lean with tights worn with flirty skirts and body-con sheaths.


The embellished boot. Rock-’n’-roll hardware—studs, buckles, straps—gives boots a perfect dose of attitude. Give the hardware a soft edge: Wear the embellished boot with light leather jacket, or unexpected feminine elements like a tulle skirt, bold jewelry or a floral printed top.


The wedge boot. This is a perfect balance of form and function. Wedge goes best with cable knit sweater dresses, maxi skirts and chic overcoats.


The Parisian boot collection is available at all SM Stores nationwide.
