The Shoe Dictionary : All with “A”


“The next day, the Prince set out to find the maiden he had danced with the previous night. No one, not even the Prince, knew who that girl was…. The glass slipper was their only clue. The Duke has been ordered to try it on every girl in the kingdom, and if one can be found whom the slipper fits, then by the King’s command, that girl shall be the Prince’s bride. Bride… Bride!

After reading these above quotes I am sure you would have realized that your shoe is just not any shoe or a shoe it always has to be The Shoe. You can look glamorous or chic with just the right pair of shoes. So let’s know about it. I have compiled a small dictionary about the shoe style and with what can it be teamed up with

Ankle boot: Tucking your pants into your ankle boots creates a long, lean leg line. Your jeans should be fitted at the ankle to allow for this look to work. Rolled or double cuffed jeans are a cute look with booties and allow for a little bit of your ankle to show and keeping your ankles from looking wide. Straight-legged or wider-legged jeans shorten your leg line when rolled. When wearing jeans with booties, an exposed ankle is key to keeping your ankles looking as slim as possible. One of the ways to create this gap between the jeans and boots is a cuffed hem.  Try this with a longer pair of skinny jeans as larger cuff is more flattering. Layered Socks and Leggings make a cute wintery look.. Go for a neutral-colored sock to avoid drawing too much attention down there. Don’t layer socks over your jeans when you’re wearing booties. Unless you are wearing leggings and are very thin material.

A monochromatic look is a great way to wear those taller ankle boots. A pair of black tights and a black pencil skirt creates a sleek long black line that makes it so the height of the boot is irrelevant. Try a funky  patterned top to offset the monochromatic bottom. But colored Tights are a great way to incorporate some color into your outfit. Socks are super trendy. Keep your socks neutral so they don’t stand out from your legs too much. When wearing socks with bare legs, keep your skirt or dress hemline above the knee. Anything longer will also cut off the line of the leg and make your legs look short.

Booties with a dress is a fun and non-obvious choice. Keep the hem of your dress above your knee to create the longest leg line possible. A-line skirts with ankle boots makes your ankles look smaller. Wear a neutral pair of ankle boots with a slimmer and more fitted skirt. Darker boots draw the eye down toward your feet and can make the outfit feel bottom heavy.

Army boots:

Also known as the Combat Boots. They look best with your boyfriend’s Jeans. Just fold it at the bottom. Army boots with short skirts are a good way of making you look smart, sexy and attractive. Go chic with Army boots. Wear a blouse with lighter color and fabric. Avoid big patterns and strong lines. Anything that is feminine adds up the grace. During winters add a cardigan on the blouse this will not only keep you warm but will retain the feminine side of the outfit.

A pencil skirt with length up to the knee or slightly above the knee is a good option but refrain yourself from wearing a maxi skirts. It will make you look out-dated. A skirt in black, grey, navy blue or brown is also a green signal. For winter pair it with thick leggings. To add more layers wear them underneath the skirt to complement the skirt. The best color for leggings to pair with army boots is black/ brown.

To dress easy and simple with skinny jeans and nice tunic or tanks. Skinny jeans tend to elongate your legs making you look taller. Dark color skinny jeans or navy blue skinny jeans will work best with this outfit. You can tuck in the skinny jean into your boots. Tees, blouses, flannel shirts of neutral color like white, grey or cream are a great pairing. You can throw on a poncho to layer up instead of jackets or cardigan as they look more formal to the trends putting on her boyfriend jeans folded.The Shoe Dictionary All with A army2

You can wear a Black, Grey or White t-shirts with a flannel shirt fully unbuttoned work well with Army boots. Denim shorts like cut-off denim shorts or acid-wash cut-off shorts with or without leggings underneath in black or brown colour will match with the outfit. Tuck in the tight into your combat boots is the style mantra.
