Manolo says, Build the Outfit has returned, and this time it is boots!!!!




There is so much that one can do with these handsome and practical suede boots from the Enzo Angliolini. These are the sort of boots that could be worn by almost anyone--young or old, tough or sweet, work or casual, skirts or jeans--the Manolo can imagine hundreds of possibilities.  And the price, just over $200 of the American dollars, is not outrageous.

And now the Manolo encourages you to go and build the outfit around these boots. 

Please post your entries below, here in the Manolo's Super Fantastic Forums.

At the end of the week, on Saturday, the Manolo will pick the winner and award the person who composed it with the $100 gift certificate to Zappos.

Oh how I've missed BTO Cheesy

These boots scream for a good coat, and I love this one from Urban Outfitters


With a great pair of jeans, like these beautiful True Religion boot-cuts.


And who doesn't love a cashmere sweater?


Leather gloves.


To add a punch of colour, and to keep the neck warm, a sheer jersey scarf (I have one of these, and I LOVE it!)


And finally, a little necklace, because every girl needs jewelry.

Normally a heel girl (because I am short and my boyfriend is 6ft5in and I can wear heel), I am surprised that these turned my head.  But then again, normally anything that Manolo recommends turns my head.  Nice work once again.

I would wear these boots with this top from Target:

These pants from Old Navy:

This jacket from Old Navy:

These earrings and necklace from Lia Sophia:

And this handbag from Angela Adams:


I live in Maine, so the sweater, warm pants, and coat are a must.  I hate wearing hats, but the hood is practial because it won't mess up my hair.  The handbag is definately needed because I need it to carry around my paperwork for my job.  All in all, the outifit is definately something that I can wear to the office and look professional, but still be able to wear if I'm having an after-work cocktail with my coworkers or doing a powerlunch.  The boots definately add a "I like to have fun, but don't want to hurt myself walking around on the ice" appeal to it.

Okay first, it's winter and I live in Amsterdam and it's real damn cold. So we need to get a base-layer going with these gorgeous tights, designed specifically to keep me toasty:

(from stockingirl.com)

Secondly, we're going to need a cute print skirt with the kind of cheerfulness that will stave of the biting winter chill:

(from La Redoute's website)

With something so eye-catching, we want simplicity up top, so we'll add on a simple t-shirt in navy, to pick up the detail from the print in the skirt, like this:

(American Apparel)
(I don't know what's with her glasses, either.)

Then a cozy sweater, like this one:

(from sundance.com)

which we would cinch with a nice brown leather belt like this one:

(urbanoutfitters.com)

A good brown leather handbag is a necessity, so we would add on this one:

(another find from sundance.com)

And then to top it all off, layer two small and whimsical necklaces, to give it a polish and a flair. I like these two:

and

(also Sundance. I like their stuff...)

Ta-da! There it be, my (personally coveted) ensemble of beauty, all based around these timeless brown suede boots...

I think this outfit would be lovely on anyone from a young lady to a woman of a Certain Age and all stops between.  If I had the money, I'd wear it Cheesy

As a poor college student, I can't really afford every piece in this outfit. But I know it would turn heads if I were to wear it around campus - I would put all the girls in sweatpants and flipflops or Uggs to shame! Boots in general always remind me of fall, so I guess that inspired my color palette.

It's still mild enough here to get away with cropped pants, if you've got fabulous boots of course.  The green adds just enough colour to bring out the green in the clutch and make the outfit pop.  The hat is just icing on the cake.

These boots are perfect for a Saturday brunch, gallery-hopping and shopping in SoHo and NoHo. I love wandering around the shops and checking everything out during a crisp fall or chilly winter day - before it gets bitter out. Layering on days like this is key!

Ronny Kobo jacket from shopbop.com
Free People sweater from freepeople.com
Melissa Joy Manning earrings from fragments.com
Nanette Lepore blouse from shoptwigs.com
Gorjana stacking rings from bluebeeonline.com
Joe's Jeans from revolveclothing.com (tucked into the boots, of course!)
Botkier Hobo from activeendeavours.com

and, of course, the super-fantastic boots from Enzo Angliolini!

I'm thinking it's the middle of Autumn and you're on the last day of a country weekend with your romantic partner, or fantastic friends. It's Sunday and you're having French Toast with lemon and powdered sugar in a gorgeous little cottage. After brunch there will be either a lazy walk or horse ride through the falling leaves, and maybe some antique shopping.

     

A funky bit of jewelry with a pop of color and a relaxed but classy white top




A beautiful cape with a bit of a fox hunting feel, with some green suede gloves that compliment the necklace and a textured handbag to bring out the color of the buckle on the boots.



A trusty pair of Levi's 501's in Vintage Blue (I could not get the picture into the post - sorry)
