Here we have a return to one of Amanda’s most wearable looks – a long sleeve dress and ankle boots. The combination is a dependable trans-seasonal outfit- just add a biker jacket, tights and over-sized scarf for those extra chilly days or shed them when you head indoors to warm air-conditioned spaces. Even these creamy colours are perfect for transitioning from winter to spring – that washed-out pink tone in Amanda’s leopard dress is a print that would suit everyone. It’s also a good neutral base if you’d prefer to add pops of red or perhaps build up the softness with more pink.
Maybe it’s because we don’t have many locations that get extremely cold, but this popular outfit is a look that we believe us Aussies do well. Here, we’re showcasing how two of Australia’s top influencers wear their dress-and-boot combo’s. We take a look at how the insanely-popular, Nikki from Styling You likes to rock her ankle boots and long sleeve dresses as well as the beautiful Iris May Style. Both ladies have a strong relationship with Frankie4 Footwear and all of the ankle boots you see pictured are by the brand also. Frankie4 are designed by a podiatrist plus a physiotherapist so if you’re someone who likes to take care of your feet then you’re likely very familiar with them already!
Although there are similarities between these three Aussies we enjoy how each of the ladies has their own take on the look.
STYLING YOU: Nikki from Styling You could potentially be one of our nations first influencers. Nikki has been modelling her looks for years and we’ve even witnessed her house evolve over the years along with her style. What we love most about Nikki is that she is really open about body image and staying healthy plus we don’t think she has ever posted a photo that hasn’t made us swoon. There has been quite a bit of black from Styling You of late and honestly, we’re not complaining. Nikki also wears a great deal of colour so it’s a nice balance for all of us. See below how Nikki rocks her ankle boots with different styles of dresses and click below the images to follow her at Styling You.
IRIS MAY STYLE: We have something in common with the star of Iris May Style, Bev and that is a love for blazers! And we even love the way Bev styles her jackets too. They don’t have to be preppy (although that looks good too) but Bev loves to pair blazers with unexpected items like a pretty floral dress (see below). She is a girl who wears colour confidently and radiates for it – which ties in with her enchanting tagline “the youthful girl’s guide to style”. Bevs lights up our social feeds whenever an image scrolls through and we highly recommend giving her a follow – details below each image.
