Q&A: What to Wear with Grey Military Boots

October 4th, 2007

Q:  I just bought a great pair of grey boots that go up to my knees. They are about 3 inches high with a pointed toe and three military inspired studs on each boot. With what do I wear them?

 GUESS? Donegal Tweed Walking CoatBy Colleen Geary, fashion stylist and image consultant

You’re very on-trend with the grey military boots–both military-inspired styles and the color grey are key trends for Fall.  We’re especially happy about this season’s celebration of the color grey, since grey is a great color to play with tonally.  Pair your military boots with a grey coat and a grey scarf and let the variations of hue (and texture) pull your outfit together. 

But don’t forget to add a splash of color to your look–adding a fire engine red handbag or a bright yellow blouse will add a dash of drama to your outfit.

    I bought red boots to wear with a black suit and a red dress shirt. However, when I got the boots home, they are a little bit darker than the red shirt. Is this okay since it will be up against the pants? Or, shoud I bring them back?

    This is great advice. I just bought myself a pair of military boots and was thinking the same thing. Great advice once again!
