Reader Request: Harness Boot Styling

I got a request from Lindsey a few weeks ago saying:

I received [a pair of Harness] Fryes last year for Christmas, but I am having a problem feeling feminine in them. Could you give me an idea of how I could wear these tough boots, without looking like a tough cowboy myself?

I honestly never wear or look to wear these type of boots because they are more masculine, and frankly just slightly out of my comfort zone. But, I have a very good friend (Ali) who has a pair of these boots, and they are her go-to footwear option for winter. So, I am taking cues from things I have seen her pair with her boots.

Harnesses look great paired with skinnies (denim, pants, or leggings) tucked in. Here is an option I like:

Skinny Stretch Pant - Forever 21 - $17.80

Also, a great tip to help balance out the heaviness of the boot is to keep the top light and flowy in a feminine fabric. Here are a few choices:

1 - Ethnic Print Tunic - Forever 21 - $24.80
2 - Geo Shapes Silk Top - Forever 21 - $29.80
3 - Water Painted Floral Top - Forever 21 - $17.80
4 - Luciana Floral Chiffon Top - Forever 21 - $17.80

What do you think? Is this something you would wear? Leave a comment!

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!


  1. I'm seeing tough boots like this paired A LOT with really frilly, feminine dresses. I don't know if I'd have the guts to pull this off myself, but the contrast between masculine and feminine is really appealing.

  2. I am just jealous she got a pair of those boots, I love Frye boots...and they look great paired with jean skirts(short or long), boot cut jeans,and lots of more casual dresses...for the fall especially, they are a great foorwear option.

  3. I totally agree with you about pairing the boots with something light and feminine- it truly balances out the look. Nice job!
