how to style boot cuffs with marleylilly boots

When it’s time to bust out your favorite fall/winter boots, you can’t forget about their trusty and fashionable sidekick. We’re talking about the boot cuff, of course! 

Boot cuffs, also called boot toppers, make it easy to achieve the look of wearing a chunky knit sock without the added bulk. If most of your boots are on the tighter side, boot cuffs are an easy solution to your fashion woes!

Whether you’re getting dressed up for date night or meeting up with the girls for brunch, boot cuffs are an easy way to instantly enhance your style. Below are some of my favorite ways to wear them: 

Boot Cuffs with Lace Trim and Black Leggings

Let’s start with the classic look for boot cuffs: wearing them with leggings! Pairing lace trim boot cuffs with black leggings and riding boots is a simple, yet on-trend look for fall and winter that is effortlessly stylish.

Pair your lace boot cuffs and riding boots with black leggings, riding boots and throw on a Sherpa pullover or flannel top to complete the look. Sherpa pullovers and jackets are incredibly warm and cozy, which may explain why celebrities such as Alison Brie are rocking Sherpa outerwear this year

To stand out this year, check out this Monogrammed Sherpa Pullover by Marleylilly. It’s reversible, so you can switch up your look by wearing it two ways! 

Preppy-Colored Boot Cuffs with Blue Jeans

Grey, beige and white are common boot cuff colors. Why not add a splash of color to your ensemble with a preppy yellow boot cuff instead? 

Yellow will look great with any black or grey leggings and tights, but it really pops against blue jeans. If you want to add some color during the dreary winter months, this is an easy way to do it! 

Play up the preppy vibe even more with a monogrammed herringbone vest. Slip on a pair of black lace-up boots and position your boot cuffs to peek out over them (about two inches) for a fun, prep-inspired look this winter. 

Paired With Monogrammed Duck Boots

If you’re like me and are OBSESSED with duck boots, this next style is a no-brainer! Duck boots and boot socks are a match made in style heaven and enhance your cozy look.

Duck boots are insanely trendy right now and have been popular for years, which makes it difficult to stand apart from everyone else! The solution to this problem? Monogrammed boot cuffs paired with monogrammed duck boots, of course.

If you live the monogrammed life like we do, you already know that monogrammed duck boots are a must-have in every preppy girl’s closet. Throw some monogrammed boot cuffs into the mix and you’ll stand out among a sea of other duck boot-wearing gals this holiday season. 

Knee-High Boots and a Dress

If you live in a place with temperamental weather, you can always wear boot cuffs with riding boots and a shift dress. This outfit is also great for when you’re transitioning seasons as well!

Plus, you can always throw on some leggings or tights underneath to add some warmth. To style it further, consider throwing on an infinity scarf and some everyday arm candy! Adding a few little details to this outfit can instantly elevate your style.

Heavy, Cable Knit Boot Cuffs on Lower Boots

Boot cuffs are commonly worn on tall riding boots or mid-length boots. But you can also wear them on ankle boots and booties as well. Winter is the season of chunky cable knit everything—from sweaters and scarves to, you guessed it, boot cuffs!

Slip on a pair of chunky knit boot cuffs followed by a pair of stylish booties and adjust the boot cuff to where it hangs over your shoe, like so:

I would style this with leggings and a cozy, collared layering tunic for a perfect fall/winter look. Whether you’re drinking hot cocoa by the fire or doing some last-minute Christmas shopping, this outfit will have you ready for the holiday season.
