Okay ladies, it’s time you ask yourselves an important question. Imagine you’re getting dressed for the evening. You’ve got your dress or outfit picked out, have decided on the right pair of boots and are rushing out to meet your date. Do you pick out a purse to match your outfit, or do you choose a particular purse that’s right for your boots?
The answer? Always think about how your purse pairs up with your boots! Though they don’t have to match, per se, they should pair well in terms of style and weight. You don’t want to have a big, clunky bag with delicate heeled boots or a light clutch with big, chunky boots. Here are a few rules to follow when matching a purse with your boots.
Color: Sometimes Less is More
Colors are great, but not too many bold tones! If you’re wearing black or gray cowboy boots, then by all means, spice up your outfit with a bright, yellow or red purse. If you have turquoise boots, though, keep your purse more neutral, and vice versa.
Style: Keep it Consistent
Keep both casual or both formal. Carrying a stiff leather purse with casual boots can come off a little awkwardly. Try to bring a soft purse with casual boots–and save the boxy, stiff bag for more formal nights out.
Shiny Happy Bags: Don’t Overdo It
Think about shine and finish. If your boots have delicate silver buckles, make sure your purse does, too! Likewise, if your purse has chunky bronze zippers, wear boots that have similar details. Little things like this will make your outfit feel more pulled together.
Like Momma Said: Be Yourself
Wear purses that fit your fashion personality. Though you want your purse and boots to look good together, try to find a purse that is in line with your personality, i.e., don’t carry a loud, neon-green one just to spice up your brown boots if that’s not the type of person you are! People look best when they’re comfortable, so find the right purse-and-boot combo for your lifestyle.
