Get ready for the ultimate statement piece in your wardrobe. These ultra-luxe boots (available in black) are defiantly not for the timid; hitting just at the knee. With a 2 1/4 inch wedge heel and rounded toe, these boots add class and sophistication to any outfit without trying to hard. Extra bonus: the micro suede material keeps feet warm; so they do serve a practical purpose. While these boots look like they came straight off a runway, try wearing these stunners with more understated pieces. You want the boots to be the focal-point of your outfit, so a simple floral dress or grey V-neck t-shirt with a slim-fitting jacket are great solid choices.

These 80’s inspired slouchy boots (available in black and taupe) are planning a big return in the fall. With a 3″ inch chunky heel, these boots are perfect for shorter women looking to add a few extra inches to their frame.  The buckle detailing on the top and bottom of the boot creates a clean-crisp look; a great look for fall. Aim for a solid colored dress that hits above the knee; anything to long can make legs appear shorter. Add a stream-lined top such as a denim jacket or boyfriend blazer to bring the whole look together. Inside Bonus: Now until the end of August, Bare Essentials is offering free make-up tips and free sample with any purchase. The perfect way to pull your whole look together.
