After saying yes to the dress, shoes are often the next step when it comes to your wedding day look. Classic pumps, romantic heels, comfortable flats, and even sneakers are popular choices for brides on their wedding day, but boots and booties make for a super-cool bridal alternative, especially if you’re a fall or winter bride getting married in a colder climate.
From ankle cuts to over-the-knee silhouettes, boots are one of the most coveted accessories in fall and winter. And while you likely have a solid assortment of styles to team with your everyday attire, your bridal wardrobe is a place to consider them for a unique and fashion-forward look.
Depending on your bridal style, a boot or bootie will perfectly complement your wedding dress from classic gowns to modern bridal separates, suits, or jumpsuits. If you’re going for a Victorian-inspired bridal look, a lace-up boot or bootie in lace or leather will create a perfect, vintage-inspired effect. For the modern bride, stark-white leather styles make for a fresh finish from ankle-length stilettos to sleek kitten heels (optic white boots just happen to be the trendiest boot style of the season, by the way). If you’re a glamorous bride, a glittering boot will make a major statement while velvet, satin, and metallic styles are a luxe, but more subdued take on glam. Sheer, lace, and floral-adorned boots are perfect for the feminine and romantic bride whether you go for a lace-up bootie with a peep toe or a pointed sock-style boot. If you’re taking an edgier approach to bridal style, a black boot will feel decidedly moody whether you’re wearing a black wedding dress or want a graphic pop against a white gown.
Whether you wear a bridal boot on your wedding day or for your engagement party, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner, you can easily wear the versatile shoe style time and again, long after your wedding day. We especially love an optic white boot with everything from midi dresses to jeans as a fashion-forward finish to outfits through the rest of winter and beyond.
