Q&A: What to Wear with Motorcycle Boots

August 14th, 2007

Q: I just received a pair of knee-high black, leather motorcycle boots from Banana Republic. How do I wear these on a college campus without looking too pretentious? I love skinny jeans, dresses, and skirts.

A: 
We have two ideas for you to work your motorcycle boots into your wardrobe:
(1) For a fun, adventurous look, wear your motorcycle boots with black tights, dark colored short shorts, and a white blouse.  The look is somewhat man tailored, and a little Patti Smith goes to college.  
(2) For a less flashy way to wear the boots, pair them with skinny jeans , a white t-shirt, and a grey wrap sweater.  The wrap sweater softens the look without overly contrasting with the hard style of the boots.

Perhaps most importantly, have fun at college–and wear the boots with confidence!

    I just bought a pair of mid-calf black motorcycle boots from Free People. Any ideas of what to wear with them in the summer? Or any season, for that matter?
