As a judge for three seasons on Project Runway, it’s obvious that Michael Kors knows fashion. Kors started out as a fashion designer and then started producing shoes in 2001. So, when he designs shoes he has clothing definitely on his mind. But what should you wear with his shoes?
Kors’ shoes are fashionable, yet functional, and work with many types of wardrobe choices. The Michael by Michael Cors’ Carney Riding Boot in black or coffee leather sits just below the knee and is the must-have boot this season. The gold stud detailing and 1-inch heel make it perfect for day or nighttime wear–you can literally go from the office to dinner at an uptown restaurant. Pair riding boots with skinny jeans, but a wrap dress is the perfect fashion statement, because the boots are sophisticated and will give the dress a chic element. Another good look would be to sport your riding boots with an above the knee skirt in plaid or a solid color like black along with a ruffle shirt or solid tee–you can even go for leggings with the skirt, in a solid color of course.
Michael by Michael Kors’ Carney High Riding Boots in black or luggage leather come up to the knee and have a casual feel to them with the strap and buckle detailing and 2 ½” stacked heel. This classic boot can be worn for many years and goes well with a mini skirt and patterned tights along with a sweater. You can also pair them with either skinny or narrow cut jeans if you have small calves.
With Kors’ Webster Boots in coffee or black leather, you have more choices. Ankle boots are the boots everyone bought last fall and still sporting this winter. Many women like to pair them with long skirts–if the skirt doesn’t touch the top of the boot and you’re showing leg, you might want to put some tights into that ensemble. For women with shapely legs, try rocking these boots with a short skirt that’s above the knee or shorter. Of course, you can wear them with pants, but no one will know they’re ankle boots unless you tuck them into skinny jeans.
And lastly, don’t put away those sandals just yet. Michael by Michael Kors’ Berkley in black leather will work well in cold weather with a few adjustments. The zip front closure is sleek and lends style to any outfit. Because the shoe is chunky and not strappy, you can wear them with black tights, or even black pantyhose that’s not sheer. Only a short skirt that’s a little above or below the knee will work with this look. Pair with a sweater or button-up shirt.
And if you run out of ideas of what to wear with your Michael Kors’ shoes, he still designs clothes that will work well with his shoes. But whatever you wear, remember it’s all about the shoes and make sure your clothes don’t overpower your outfit!
