Chelsea boots are some of the most classic boot styles to wear for fall. A ton of you bought a great pair this summer, and I want to share how to wear tan Chelsea boots for outfit inspiration!
LOOKING FOR SOME IDEAS FOR TAN CHELSEA BOOTS OUTFITS?
You know how much I love Chelsea boots – but I typically only share how to wear black ones. Like so many of you, I grabbed THIS PAIR of tan Chelsea boots (they’re the same brand and style as my FAVORITE BLACK BOOTS EVER) recently. A lot of my followers went crazy for these boots so here are 4 fun ways to wear tan Chelsea boots for fall and beyond.
Sizing and details on these boots
These boots fit the same as the Black Chelsea Boots — they’re true to size, and they’ll be a little stiff at first but soften after a few wears. The material is a faux suede and claims it’s water resistant, but with the light material, it is more prone to spots or scratches. I would definitely treat them before wearing and using in the rain or the snow, and just know that they’re not going to be quite as durable as the black pebbled leather ones.
How to Wear Tan Chelsea Boots
1. Try them with light wash jeans!
Since the boots are light colored, light colored jeans make sense with them, so give them a try. I paired with a white top and lightweight jacket for an easy fall outfit, but if you want to make it more wintery with these jeans, try a lighter colored sweater and coat, like gray or white or tan, or a soft pink or green or blue.
2. These light boots look great with a dress!
Sometimes Chelsea boots can feel clunky with a dress, but since these are lighter colored (but not too stark) they work well with a dress and don’t make the outfit feel bottom heavy. Since the dress is lightweight, I paired with a dark denim jacket to make the boots make sense with the outfit.
3. Try your light boots with a light jacket
If you’re wearing the light colored boots with darker pants, try balancing the outfit with a light jacket. You could do a trench coat like I did, which matches the shoes pretty closely, or you could do a more rich tan colored wool coat, or even a gray or white coat or jacket.
4. Light colored layers on top work well when wearing light boots with dark pants
Here’s an even more extreme example of outfit #3 above, when you have super dark pants with light boots. To balance the dark and light mixed bottom half, choose a lighter colored top. I chose a longer top layered underneath, and a chunkier sweater on top, because I wanted to have more of the outfit be light than dark so the light boots made sense.
I hope that’s helpful when you’re wearing your beige/tan ankle boots!
