I’ve had my eye on red Hunter boots since high school, and I’m sooo happy I finally own them. You guys might remember from my Black Friday haul that I picked up these babies up. I also got these boot socks to keep me even warmer on extra cold days. Surprisingly, the boots themselves kept me pretty warm even in -2 degree weather.
Wearing something as daring as bold red Hunter boots isn’t out of my comfort zone, but it definitely isn’t something I’m used to styling. Coloured booties are one thing, but coloured tall boots are on a whole different level. Although I love my red Hunters, I do find them a bit flashy, so I prefer to dress them down with my outfits.
I wore these Hunters to an event last week with a white knit sweater, a black bomber, and black denim. This outfit is pretty much the same colour scheme lol. I wore a white button-up (that ripped on me later, argh!), a black leather jacket, and dark wash denim I actually got at the event I just mentioned (thanks Mark’s!) I also threw on a brown coat overtop because it was so darn cold.
For something as bold as red Hunter boots, I’d definitely pair them with more neutral shades. They pair perfectly with any standard colour of denim (dark wash, light wash, black, or even white) and they look adorable with dresses! In high school I once wore a bodycon dress and some black tights with a pair of navy Hunters I used to own (I documented it on my old Tumblr lol – here are some more of my old Tumblr posts including some OOTDs from way back).
Can we also talk about how great these photos turned out?! I’m not the best when it comes to posing or art direction, and the photos always turn out so much nicer when Adam steps in with some ideas. (Shoutout to all the #instahubbies out there.) This is probably my favourite shoot next to this other one Adam and I did back in the summer!
Do you guys own any bold-coloured boots or are they not for you? I’d love to know in the comments!
