When Kate Hudson stepped off a recent flight donning fringed boots we all took notice and then hunted for the exact pair. Even if you're on a budget, or aren't sure if the look fits your style, you can still jump on the fringed-boot trend this season:
- Purchase fringed boots made from real leather, which only get better with age. And stick with a classic shape instead of peep-toe or boots with lots of sparkling embellishments that may only be in style this season.
- If you do lots of walking, opt for a low or wedge heel. But if you're searching for more of an evening look, splurge for ankle boots with heels that have just the right pop of fringe.
- Pick a color that fits with your wardrobe. Go with knee-high styles in neutral colors to make a bold fringed boot statement. Black or darker leather fringed boots pair well with tucked pants or leggings for a chic, polished look, and anklet boots offer a touch of fringe when worn with your favorite skinny jeans.
- Look for styles that can be worn rolled down or shrugged for various wearing options. And fringed boots aren't just for colder regions; they can be paired with colorful tights or bare legs in warmer climates for Winter style.
