Orange is a colour I so often overlooked, probably up until as recently as this summer, when all of a sudden I was drawn inexplicably towards it. When I saw these orange Jeffrey Campbell boots on Sarenza whilst spending my prize voucher, I new that without a doubt they had to be mine.

The trouble with orange shoes? What to wear them with! Yesterday I teamed them with a simple jumper dress from Next,
and I am sure that if I was in possession of a pair of jeans that fit me, then that would work too…but otherwise, damn, it’s a fairly awkward colour to pair things with, right?!

How would you wear orange shoes? Inspire me. PLEASE!

  1. I would say anything black, full stop. I found that orange and mustard are warm together. Perhaps navy too? What about a mixed print that also contains the same orange. Your floral dress collection must have something with orange.
    Adore those shoes anyhow x

  2. Navy, grey, mink – almost anything neutral really, it’s lets the orange stand out. Khaki is also a good option. Those boots are lovely and look fab with that jumper. Hope you’re having a fab weekend!

  3. Firstly great boots!

    As for what to wear them with well plains, black, navy etc will always work well. Or for a more dramatic effect clash them with other bold colours.

    You must have lots of lovely dresses you could mix them with. Good luck on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans as these would set them off perfectly.

  4. LOVE the shoes! I would pair them with blue jeans or a floral dress. Anything black would look great and dramatic, and something white or cream would look a bit country and fresh šŸ˜‰

  5. You’ve teamed them perfectly, love those boots so much! I think they’d look great with jeans, and lots of your dresses with a hint of orangey tones to them.. x

  6. I agree with nothing black, I like them with nude colors šŸ™‚


  7. I would never think to wear orange boots but these ones look lovely how you’ve styled them! x

  8. Those boots look fab on you x

  9. They’re awesome! Maybe with a black shift dress? Or a black bodycon? I say some orange courts in Primark a couple of years ago and really regret buying them

    I think dark blue jeans would look great with these šŸ˜‰

  11. They’d be lovely with leopard print and black x

  12. That black and white dress you wore on Friday would go great with this. And doesn’t that Monsoon apple dress have orange details on it (or am I seeing that wrong?) wouldn’t that be a fun combo? And a vivid blue or navy blue might work (depending on item though) with orange boots? Otherwise I agree with Sophie!

  13. I love that outfit and that dress is lovely. I love how you have styled the boots xx

    I think you just need to be brave when wearing orange boots, there’s no point wearing with something black. You could try bottle green, turquoise, teal, royal blue, burgundy red or even purple. Go for it!

  15. oooh I love these boots!!! šŸ™‚ x

  16. Those shoes are lovely-i just love boots šŸ˜€

  17. Love these shoes. You chose so well xxx

  18. I really like this colour on you Laura, you look gorgeous. And you’re right, Bath is gorgeous this Christmas. I’d love to spend the day in Bristol and meet you there too! xxx

  19. Lush boots, no wonder you snapped them up!

  20. What brilliant boots, no wonder you had to have them! I like wearing orange with neutral colours – camel trousers or skirt and a cream blouse would look great with a bright splash of colour.

  21. Those shoes are gorge! They work really well with your outfit here. I think I’d keep it simple with black tights and something with a pop of colour to even out the orange of the boots.

  22. I love your shoes! I can’t think of much to pair them with for winter but I think they would look amazing with dresses in spring/summer.

    They look reddish. Amazing with your hair. You have the best shoe collection known to women. ^_^

    I’d wear red shoes with solid black, or a cute cotton white dress…Possibly black & white stripes & if I’m super daring-plaid.

  24. I love your jumper dress!! and the boots go perfectly šŸ™‚ xx

  25. Those boots are spectacular. I’d wear them with all black so they really stood out. Like really slinky form fitting clothes so the chunkiness of the boots caught your eye. Oh man I’m envious of them now haha Molly xo
