Another casual combo for this week’s “Inspiration Monday” look, via the eternally chic Charlize Theron. I recycled the foundation from last week’s inspiration challenge (grey dress + black leggings) but capitalized on the opportunity to demonstrate how footwear can really change up an outfit (and how different pairs of black shoes can be from one other!).
Below is the same outfit shown with 3 different pairs of black shoes: flats, high-heeled boots, and flat-heeled rain boots.
Interpretation, Look 1 (high-heeled boots):
Details: Black sweater cardigan: Maurices, Wisconsin, old / Grey dress: Gap, Chicago, old / Long johns repurposed as leggings: Walmart?, old / Boots: Rampage via Nordstrom’s, Wisconsin, old
I think the boots really elevate the look and make the very simple combo of sweater cardigan + tunic/dress + leggings look more chic and pulled together.
Interpretation, Look 2 (flats):
Details: Flats: Payless, last summer
This is the version I wore around the house, and I would grab these flats as a first choice to do things like run errands, etc.
Interpretation, Look 3 (flat-heeled rain boots):
Details: Rain boots: Chooka via REI, last winter
Ahhh, the Oregon special of flat-heeled (rain) boots and leggings. So comfy and practical for this off-and-on rainy weather.
Which is your favorite shoe combo? Please leave a comment and let me know! 🙂
