What Goes with Brown Boots?
So, how do you dress your brown boots? There’s so many options when it comes to what to wear your boots with. First of all, brown isn’t just one colour, think about the shades of brown you already have and the shades of brown you can get with your new boots. You give yourself much more variety in outfit choice if you have different shades of brown to work with.
On your bottom half, go for some black tights if you’re wondering what colour tights to wear with brown boots, or some black leggings. The contrast is quite nice and is on theme with winter. Blue jeans are always a good choice with brown boots, another pleasing colour combination that will add a splash of colour to the season. Or consider some brown cords for serious effortless style.
What about on top? Don’t be afraid to keep wearing autumnal colours into the winter. If the weather isn’t too cold, pair a dress with some boots and a jacket to keep things light and fun. Neutral colours on top will go well with brown boots and make a great daytime outfit. Brown boots will also match an all-black outfit with ease.
If you want to add a dash of debonair to your casual style, wear them with tracksuit bottoms. Wrap up warm in a nice winter trench coat and pair with your brown boots for serious fashion points.
If you’re wondering what to wear short brown boots with, like Chelsea or ankle boots, then some jeans and more casual outfits will definitely suffice. Blue jeans or black leggings, a casual all-black outfit looks fantastic with some brown Chelsea boots, for example.
As for tall brown boots, your knee high boots or even over the knee brown boots will look good with a black dress and your more formal wear. Pair them with a classy trench coat, don’t be afraid to work in some patterns, or pair them with a blazer for a power outfit.
Can Brown Boots Be Worn with Black?
Fashion rules be damned, if you’ve ever thought can brown boots be worn with black, then we’re her to tell you that you most certainly can. The fact is, rules are made to be broken and these old-fashioned rules tend to be rooted in old attitudes and in this day and age, we think it’s time to say goodbye to them all.
We disagree that there should be any ‘rules’ of fashion and not wearing black and brown is definitely one we think is ridiculous. Brown boots go really well with black jeans or leggings. You can pair them with a black skirt or even a black dress. Some over the knee brown boots and an LBD are a killer look.
Celebrities, fashion bloggers and influencers alike are pairing brown with black, do you think they’re stopping and worrying about breaking the ‘rules’? Of course not! So, like them, forge your own path and break the rules. Your own personal style shouldn’t have to follow a regimen and tick boxes; dress in whatever makes you feel confident.
How to Clean Brown Boots
Brown boots will help you nail trends this season, but it’s another thing keeping them fresh and clean, so you always look good stepping out in them. Whether your brown boots are leather or suede, we’re going to give you some quick tips on how to freshen them up.
How to Clean Brown Leather Boots
One thing you can do to prevent the need to clean your brown leather boots in the first place is invest in a water-repellent spray to coat them in. This will help prevent the build-up of stains and blemishes. However, if you have not done that, then here’s how to clean your brown leather boots.
You will need:
- Soft Cloth
- Clean Towel
- Large Tub or Bucket
- Baking Soda
Follow these steps to freshen up your boots:
- Make a cleaning solution from your vinegar and water. It needs to be half and half between the too.
- Take a rag and soak it in your cleaning solution. Dab the stains on your boot with your rag.
- Take another rag or a clean cloth and wipe your boots. Make sure your cloth is a bit damp and don’t be too hard on the boots.
- Dry your boots off with your clean towel and let them dry naturally for a few hours. Don’t put them near a direct source of heat!
- Buff your boots with your soft cloth once they’re dry to give them some shine (give them a polish if you fancy it!).
If you’ve got brown suede boots, then you need to change tack to freshen them up. Again, some water-repellent coating will come in handy and there’s a quite a few ‘suede protect’ sprays that you can buy. Otherwise, here are our tips on how to clean your brown suede boots.
Suede-cleaning brushes are a fantastic investment, especially if you have brown over the knee suede boots. You can’t use water on your suede boots, so you have to get a bit creative. A rubber eraser should help lift stains or dab the problem areas with a clean bath towel if the stain is fresh. If it’s a stubborn or dry stain, use some white vinegar and be very careful to try and lift those stains.
