Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.
I’ve bought a fabulous black wrap dress. I wear it with stilettos for an evening dinner, but I’d like to dress it down a bit with boots. I want to wear that super fantastic dress at work too!
What type of boots would you suggest ? High boots ? Mid-calf ? Leather ? Suede ?
Thank you very much,
First the Manolo must compliment the Julie on her marvelous taste. Every super fantastic girl must have at least one of the Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses in her closet. They are the very definition of the word “classic”.
Beacuse the shilouette and fit of the DvF wrap is very soft and feminine and pretty and because it is also the very practical garment, the Manolo would recommend that the feetwear should have these same qualities of softness, practicality, and femininity.
Thus he would suggest this black knee-high suede boot from the Michael Kors.
Normally, the Manolo is not the fan of the chunky chains on the boots, but in this case, because of the black-on-black combination of the boots and the dress, the chain adds the needed flash to the ensemble.
