Slouchy boots are a must have for fall. They look great over slim jeans, and look even cuter with a dress or skirt. I love the casual and hip look they portray. The flat, slouchy boot is so comfortable and perfect for traveling. You know it’s a fashion must have when you can be comfortable and look chic simultaneously. Best of all, there is no effort involved. I picked out a few slouchy boots that are great for all occasions. A couple of them are suede, so make sure you spray them before wearing them out. I would also consider what kind of socks you wear, if any, prior to purchase. And, here we go…

When picking out slouchy boots, I was relating them to different celebrities. My first feature is very Kim Kardashian or Beyonce. I mean, this Nine West 4-inch “Zarajoe” heeled boot is sexy! These shoes are an outfit of their own! The boot is two contrasting textures, which is what fall is all about-- these boots pretty much sum up fall fashion. The 4-inch heel will help the shorter ladies rise to the top in colder months, and will prevent the sluggish feeling of colder months ahead. I usually think of flat slouchy boots first, but I couldn’t resist when I saw this sassy pair. I definitely would purchase this boot, and pair it with slim jeans or leather leggings.

Next, is a pair of boots I picture Eva Longoria wearing. This Naughty Monkey chocolate suede D Ring Boot has a detached-looking wedge, which gives you the height without discomfort. Wedges are always known to be more forgiving. This boot will be more comfortable than the Nine West 4-inch heeled boots. This pair is very versatile, and can be rocked with pretty much anything. I love the D-ring on the boots-- it gives the boot a lot of character. I would wear this boot with a plaid blouse underneath a boyfriend blazer and paired with leggings.

Lastly, I feature my ultimate favorite pair! I absolutely adore the Steve Madden “Brio” boots for anyone. Most celebs would snatch this pair up in a heart beat; especially the Olsen twins. These boots look awesome in the cognac color because it makes more of a statement. I think they stole the number 1 slot because they look rugged, and wouldn’t look bad with a little wear and tear, which is the type of boots I’m always willing to buy!
