Reader Request: Harness Boot Styling
/// categories: style tips
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,
