Wool Suits & Leather Boots


Just because it’s the winter doesn’t mean that your style has to suffer, especially when it comes to your suiting!

Therefore, if you have to wear a suit for work, an interview, etc., make sure that you do it right with a warm wool suit and the right pair of leather boots. By the right pair, I mean that it needs to have the right silhouette and the perfect height to really compliment your suit.

Here is an example of how I wear my wool suits and leather boots in the winter!


I’ve talked about pairing denim shirts with your suit in the past to create a more casual and laid back look. However, you can also create a more sophisticated and professional look with a denim shirt as well. Instead of a button down collar, consider wearing a denim shirt with a wide spread collar so that you can wear it with your favorite textured tie.

Not only is a denim shirt more appropriate for the season, but it’s also a fresh and unique approach to the typical white or light blue dress shirt that so many of us wear during the warmer months.

Especially me!


When it comes wearing the right pair of leather boots with your suit there are a few things to keep in mind:

Firstly, make sure the silhouette is sleek and not rounded. Try an almond-shaped silhouette as opposed to a rounded one. This will create a more refined and well put together look.

Secondly, you want to make sure that your boots aren’t too high and not to low. Choose a boot that goes slightly above your ankle like these leather chukka boots from Thursday Boots!

Lastly, having a slim taper and the proper length on your pants is crucial.Consider getting your pants hemmed so that they stop at your ankle. By doing so, it will sit comfortably on top of your boots and not look sloppy and bunched up at the ankle.
