The One Boot Style To Never Wear With Leggings

Share

We’ve officially entered boot season, and fresh trends abound, from bold colors (stark white and red) to fun silhouettes (cowboy and slouchy styles). We plan to give them all a try, but when it comes to teaming them with one of our fall wardrobe go-tos—leggings—things get a bit tricky. Especially one particular style that happens to be huge this season: sock boots. Womp, womp. The combination of stretch on stretch makes for an unflattering and awkward fit on most body types—it’s a no-go in our book. The good news? Tons of other boots look great with leggings, from over-the-knee to combat. Ahead, shop our edit, starting at just $60. As for your sock boots, go ahead and reserve them for denim, dresses and skirts instead.
