Slouch Your Way Through Fall In This Season's Must-Have Boots

These boots were made for slouching.

While we’re big fans of the style, we’re gonna put our hands up and admit that there are several problems with over-the-knee boots. First of all, not everyone’s calves are the same size as their thighs, which can make it a squeeze to get into them in the first place – or the designers over compensate meaning that they’re constantly slipping down and generally causing a nuisance. This fall, we’re happy to say, those problems are a thing of the past because the slouchy boot is dominating the footwear department. 

Everyone from the fashion set and beyond has embraced this laid-back look. Unlike its sleek, bodycon predecessor, this season’s must-have shoe is deliberately slack meaning not only that you don’t have to worry about hitching them back up every ten minutes, but that they’re easy to slip in and out of, too. 

We love the cool and casual look of the slouchy boot hitting just below the knee. It’s a bit mid-millennium meets cowboy-off-duty, but rather than rocking yours with a pair of distressed jeans tucked in and an ankle-length cardigan cocooning you (though, that does sound like a pretty cozy outfit), try styling a pop-colored boot under a slit dress or skirt in a neutral shade for a more modern, high-fashion take on the trend. We are particularly keen on Saint Laurent's crystal-clad design – though unfortunately we don't have $10,000 to spare. 

However you decide to wear yours, our advice is to keep the details of the rest of your outfit fairly streamlined to avoid mushrooming your silhouette out too much – let the slouchiness be a statement structure to your look.
