Ankle Length Boots – A Unique Fall Look


Ankle Boots (

An exciting and easy look this fall is booties, also known as ankle length boots. They are unique compared to the traditional tall boots. So lets dare to be different this season and try them out. Watch out for a variety of colors vastly approaching you in brown, beige, wine, black, grey and many more. Some come in pull on styles,  zip up, flats, heels, and wedges. Others have buckles for show in faux and real leather. You can find them in suede as well which should be protected with weather and water proof spray. Some have fringe and lace and even fur.

With Cuffed Jeans (

Skinny jeans are one of the best items to pair with your ankle boots.  They can help slim your ankles by rolling them up a little to highlight the skinny area above your feet. Another fun look with these boots is wearing them with your socks sticking out. Yes, it sounds funny but with cute socks that are a thinner material, you can make it look dainty and feminine. Therefore, you should avoid thick pants and jeans so your ankles don’t look bulky. Jeggings and leggings are best with this look. If you have bare legs, try a skirt above the knee to avoid your legs looking short. For color, try shorter, neutral colored socks to avoid drawing attention to them.

Tights and A-line Skirt (

A-line skirts are great with ankle boots because the fullness of the skirt tends to slim your feet and ankles. Wear a neutral pair of boots with a more fitted skirt to help elongate your legs as darker boots may make your outfit appear bottom heavy. Sometimes your boots might cover your whole ankle. In this case, try tights with the skirt. Wear your black boots with black tights, beige with beige, grey with grey, and the list goes on. However, if you want to wear a different color tight than your boots, this is ok too, it adds variety.

Try out this great style boot and ways to wear it, I’m sure you’ll love them just as much as this great Fall weather!

The Diamond Body Type – How to make it shine

Diamond (

Here is another blog on how to dress a specific body type, one beautifully named the Diamond. Knowing what body type you have, will save you time shopping so you can look and feel as fabulous as possible no matter what. Every woman is different, and that is a wonderful thing, we are all unique in many different ways.

If you are a Diamond body type your hips are wider than your shoulders and bust and you have a fuller midsection. Your arms are usually on the slimmer side and you carry more weight on your upper thighs than the bottom part of your legs. While being a diamond shape, you want to create a waist to balance your shoulders and bust. In order to do so, choose tops that add fullness and curves to your upper body. You can achieve an hour glass shape by putting focus on the center of your body and arms and legs.

You want to make a good first impression when introducing yourself the place you want to work. In order to do so, you need to appear professional, neat, and clean. Make sure you have your staple items which are neutral colored suits in gray, black, brown, tan, or navy blue. Light colored blouses and cotton shirts are perfect for going underneath. Try a light scarf around your neck especially if you’re interviewing with a more conservative company.

Another staple item is the white button down shirt or a white dressy, plain blouse. If you know you are interviewing with a more laid back and casual company, make sure you are still dressy with your outfit. It’s better to be over-dressed than under-
