This post was written in collaboration with expert stylist Jamie Lea, who shared her fall fashion insights and showed us how she styles our Fernweh boots.

Hey there!

I am so excited to partner with OTBT Shoes to show you how to style the Fernweh Mid-Shaft Booties for fall! In trying to think outside the box, I decided to take a two-piece set, which is a fun trend this fall, and pair it with these casual slouchy booties. Even though two-piece sets are trendy items, this one is neutral and versatile enough to incorporate well with your current wardrobe.

I wore this outfit during my travels to Waco, TX. My husband and I went to the Magnolia Table restaurant on our 15 year anniversary! YAY to us! My main goal while traveling is to be comfortable but still maintain a fashionable look. The Fernweh allowed me to do this with multiple outfits, and this one was my favorite. OTBT Shoes are made for the traveler in mind, so every step was done in total comfort!

These stylish mid-shaft boots have an interesting double stacked heel, memory foam footbed that "hugs" your foot, and an interior velvet lining. They're the perfect fall booties for all your wandering needs!


I think the
Fernweh Mid-Shaft Booties added something a little unexpected to this outfit.  Here a few tips on how to put an outfit like this together:

  • Pick the right boots. The Fernweh works so well because it's slim through the shaft of the leg.  If the slouchy shaft was wider, it would have looked too overwhelming and overtaken the look of the slim lined skirt.
  • Find a skirt length that suits you. I love the midi length for fall and this one ends mid-calf on me, so it left some space in between the boot and the skirt. I really think any skirt length would work with the mid-shaft booties, even a fun mini skirt with tights.
  • Keep it casual. These booties are a very casual style with the slouchy shaft, low-heel and burnished leather.
  • Accessorize. Jazz up your look with some fun accessories like a hat and some statement earrings. A long necklace would have worked with this as well, but I decided to keep it simple.
  • Add contrast. Balance the black booties with a black hat or handbag. This will help bring the light grey outfit and dark booties together for a cohesive look.


If you just don't like two-piece sets, here are some other options to style with the
Fernweh Mid-Shaft Booties:

  • Really skinny jeans or jeggings and a chunky sweater or blazer
  • Skinny jeans and a graphic tee
  • A maxi skirt or maxi dress
  • Mini skirt and tights with a sweater
  • Black leggings and a long sweatshirt
  • A knee length denim skirt and fun top

Pro Tip:  There's so many things you can wear with the Fernweh Mid-Shaft Booties. When styling the boots with jeans, remember that the legs need to be skinny enough to fit inside the booties, unless the jeans are cropped and you can roll them once or twice.

Happy styling!
