Moto boots are one my favorite trends this season. Not only are they very practical – think comfy – but they are also incredibly easy to wear with just about anything. I can’t tell you how often I grab these biker boots to wear with my outfits. The style is definitely an unexpected throwback to the 90s, and I’m totally digging it. Anyone else wear Doc Marten’s all the time? Just me? I thought I was a very cool punk kid. But, you know my love of moto boots from this post from a few weeks ago, and I finally got some for Christmas! I also got these awesome pink velvet boots. Because you always need some edgy and girly pieces, right? Anyways, I want to persuade you to love moto boots as much as I do. While they definitely make a statement, they have quickly become a staple in my closet.
How To Wear Motorcycle Boots
Biker Boots with Leggings
Leggings, especially these leggings, are on heavy rotation in my wardrobe lately. They are so easy to throw on with a baggy sweater. And, they look great tucked into all boots – ankle boots, over the knee boots, and moto boots.
Tips for Wearing Biker Boots with Jeans
Jeans are always my go-to when going out on the weekends, especially during the winter. Ankle boots have always been my boot of choice for a casual look, but now that I’ve gotten these moto boots, I have been grabbing them more often. (I also have my eye on these heeled patent black leather boots – what do you think?!). You can easily pair any kind of top with jeans – like a chic button up or a funnel-neck sweatshirt – and they will look great with biker boots. There are a few tips and tricks I stick to when pairing my moto boots with jeans:
- Pair skinny jeans and an oversized sweater with black boots for a casual look
- Don’t wear a leather jacket with your outfit – unless you want to look super edgy.
- Make the motorcycle boots the stand out as the feature of your outfit by keeping everything else simple for an elevated and refined look.
Biker Boots with Dresses
Wearing these chic ankle boots with dresses is such a fun twist on the trend. During our Christmas Eve celebration, my mom wore her favorite combat boots with a plaid dress and the combo was perfection. I know, my mom is super stylish!! Pairing the short boots with a feminine dress is a great way to show off this edgier shoe style, especially if you’re a little hesitant. My rule for trying new styles is to pair it with something familiar and classic, like a dress. Neutral accessories, like this black crossbody bag and black earrings, add the perfect layers of style without being too dramatic.
The reason I picked two plaid dresses to pair with these biker boots is because I love the edgier feel of the pattern. The plaid wrap dress is definitely more of a splurge, but the feminine draping is perfect for these more masculine ankle boots. I love the plaid shirt dress because the pattern is a bit smaller and it has a great oversized shape that lends itself to these statement boots. It also feels more casual and appropriate for everyday wear.
