How To Wear Granny Boots Without Looking Like, Well, A Granny

We’ve been seeing trendy, heeled granny boots all over town lately, and while they do sort of look like they belong on a mean, British schoolteacher, or as their affectionate name insists, a grandmother, we like this lace up look. Worried about how to style up this particular type of ankle boots? That’s where we come in.

First things first, pick a pair of granny boots that aren’t too clunky – we like Deena & Ozzy’s slim lace up pair. While your first inclination may be to go with a floral frock, we suggest jean leggings with a sophisticated high waist. Next, add a blouse with exaggerated ruffles – Grandma definitely wouldn’t sport this super trendy style.  We suggest you tuck in your top and throw on a fitted velvet blazer to balance out your not-so-feminine foot wear. Finally, slip your arm through a slouchy hobo in a neutral gray or black.
