6 Ways to Style Brown Boots & Booties
I LOVE brown boots and booties. Don’t get me wrong, I also love black boots and booties…but with my style, I tend to gravitate more toward lighter neutral color palettes with beautiful beiges and yummy brown tones. No matter what your style, brown boots are a must-have in every woman’s closet. They’re a wardrobe basic that is crucial to building all of your fall and winter (and even some spring and summer) outfits for those colder months! They’re super stylish and versatile, can be dressed up or down to suit your mood or occasion, and there are TONS of options out there. Keep scrolling to find SIX ways to style your brown booties that are casual and dressy!

Do Brown Boots Go With Everything
Brown boots and booties are so classic and versatile that they really can go with everything. There are so many different types of brown boots out there that no matter what you’re wearing, there’s probably a boot that you could pair with your look. Depending on the type of brown boot or bootie, you can wear them with dresses, skirts, or jeans in all styles. If you don’t already have brown boots in your closet, make sure you consider the different shades of brown that will work with your wardrobe, heel heights that will work with your lifestyle, shaft heights that will work with your bottoms, and materials (like leather, suede, etc.) that you prefer.
Below, I’m sharing six outfit ideas to give you some inspiration to recreate outfits from pieces you have in your closet.
#1) Brown Booties with Straight Leg Jeans
The first look is a classic casual outfit combination that really can’t go wrong. A sweater + jeans + brown booties = a super easy and chic fall/winter outfit! You can recreate this look with any pieces in your closet, but I’m wearing a fair isle sweater by Brochu Walker that is SO soft, comfortable, and cozy. And the colors in it are just so beautiful! You case use code ‘ERIN15’ for 15% when you purchase through their site (limited sizes available)!
I styled the sweater with a pair of AG jeans I’ve had for a few months and wear all the time. They are straight-leg, super high-rise, and SO easy to style with any kind of shoes.
On my feet, I’m wearing an old pair of brown Paige booties I’ve had for years. I love the way to brown boots complement the brown tones in the sweater…perfection! But you can wear whatever brown booties you already have in your closet. Since these jeans are a slimmer straight-leg fit, I could also wear some brown knee-high boots too. If you don’t already have brown booties, I linked a similar pair below.
#2) Brown Boots with a Dress
The next way to style your brown booties is with a mini dress! This is s super simple combo. Because this dress is short, the length is easier to style with boots and you can get away with pretty much any style of brown boot…ankle, high-heeled, knee-high, combat, sock booties, etc. Throw on an oversized teddy coat, some of your favorite everyday jewelry, and you’re ready to go!
If mini dresses aren’t your style, you could also style your boots with midi dresses, maxi dresses, flowy dresses, sweater dresses, etc. If you wanted to dress this look up even more, you could swap the block-heel boots for a pair of brown boots with a stiletto heel. The possibilities really are endless!
I love a boots and dress outfit combination so much, I shared 12 ways to wear boots with a dress here.
#3) Brown Booties with Black Dress
If you want to turn up the sexy for your next date night or GNO, this brown bootie outfit is the one for you! The dress I’m wearing by ASTR the Label is a sexy show-stopper. The longer length is ideal for women over 40 but I love the fitted silhouette and strappy cutout details on the bust. You don’t need this exact dress to recreate this outfit…but if you’re looking for a new black dress, this one is perfect! I’m wearing the same Paige booties, but you could also wear a pair of brown ankle boots, black booties, heels, sneakers, sandals, etc.
#4) Brown Boots with Chino Pants
This is probably the most unique way I’ve come up with to style brown boots…and I LOVE it! This Frank & Eileen button-down shirt is super high quality, has a beautiful fit, is very well-made, and the fabric is amazing.
I paired it with a pair of Frank & Eileen chinos that are equally as high-quality and well-made as the shirt. I’ve been throwing these pants on with different tops and sweaters and finding it fun to try them with different, unexpected pieces. When you think of chino pants, you think of them in a more traditional way, styled with sandals or mules, but I love them with western boots and a glam teddy coat. This is just a really cool look for any of my risk-taking fashionistas out there!
#5) Brown Booties with Baggy Jeans
This next look is another great, casual option that you can tweak depending on your personal style preferences. I’m wearing the same brown Paige booties from previous looks underneath these cool, baggy high-waisted (11”) jeans by SLVRLAKE. I love that they’re a baggier fit but still pretty straight-leg. They fit beautifully over my booties and will work perfectly with whatever brown ankle booties you have too! The length is great on me when I’m wearing heeled booties but if you’re shorter (I’m 5’4”) you might need to get them hemmed. By the way, if baggy jeans aren’t your style, that’s OK! This look would work with skinny jeans, straight jeans, flared jeans, or whatever style you feel comfortable in. I styled the jeans with an IRO sweater with the most gorgeous details like the puff sleeves, unique ribbing, and shorter hemline that takes the guesswork out of whether to tuck it or not. I love wearing this sweater with high-waisted jeans.
#6) Brown Booties with Joggers
This last look is another one for my trend setting fashion lovers…Brown booties over a pair of baggy joggers! Wearing boots over baggy jeans, trousers, joggers, pants, etc. is very on-trend right now so I wanted to give it a try. I’m wearing a pair of Rag & Bone joggers that look like jeans. They are SO comfortable and feel like lounge pants, but they have the look of real jeans printed onto them…cool, right?! A few Team Busbee members purchased and LOVE them too, which means they’re good for multiple body shapes, heights, and styles. If these are too trendy for you, swap them for your favorite pair of jeans to get the same look. I styled the joggers with a pretty brown plaid blouse by Isabel Marant. I love the plaid print, puff shoulders, silver buttons, and overall western-inspired look.
