Would they look ok with dresses/leggings etc?

Too clunky i think for dresses/ leggings.

Lapinlapin Sun 11-Sep-16 09:34:16

I like them!

But probably best to ignore me. I don't think I really fit in on style and beauty!

They would look OK on a very wintry day with jeans, but look to workman-like for dresses IMO.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 11-Sep-16 09:41:48

hmm..yes I see your point re them being clunky.

I've ordered them to try on and will return them if no good.

Btw there is a working 20% off voucher code for Clarks running at the moment: BTS16 - if anyone is thinking of ordering anything smile

Agree with the pp who said they'd work on a wintry day with jeans. They're definitely an "outdoor" boot, for going to the park etc, rather than something you could wear for work. I wouldn't put them with dresses unless you want to look like a Fat Face advert.

I would wear them with dresses. But then again I wear my work boots [I am a gardener] with dresses and nobody runs off shrieking.

SnugglySnerd Sun 11-Sep-16 10:24:54

I like them and would probably wear them with everything all winter!

GinAndOnIt Sun 11-Sep-16 11:06:36

I think the height of them is wrong for dresses. I know someone who wears boots like these, and despite having very slim, long legs, she does look rather clumpy and masculine in them.

Runningupthathill82 Sun 11-Sep-16 11:13:14

Gin has it. It's not just the clumpiness that's the issue, it's absolutely the height. These boots would cut off at around the widest part of the calf and look really odd with any length of skirt or dress.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 11-Sep-16 13:10:30

I shall take a pic of me in a skirt with them when they arrive grin

Northernlurker Sun 11-Sep-16 15:32:18

I think they're nice. Had my eye on them for a while actually so thanks for the code, I got the black ones.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 11-Sep-16 17:59:16

no worries Northernlurker

I'd be interested to see a pic of your black ones when they arrive smile

I think they're lovely and would be great with dresses. I don't like the silly little ankle boots that most people think look good with dresses atm. They look more like overgrown shoes. These ones are definitely boots and look ace.

Masculine? Is she wanging her penis about as surely that is the only way to really look masculine? This whole 'women must fart flowers in pretty lace dresses to be feminine' really gets my fucking goat. Fuck that shit.

DavetheCat2001 Mon 12-Sep-16 08:52:49

haha Doreen!

FluffyFluffster Mon 12-Sep-16 09:00:53

I like them. I would wear them with jeans or leggings and a patterned floaty tunic dress thing.

GinAndOnIt Mon 12-Sep-16 09:37:28

Fair point Doreen

Dave, if you like the boots, great. Wear them and rock them. It's good that everyone has different tastes. But I have to say, it does rather seem like you didn't actually want opinions on the boots other than 'they're lovely', so I'm wondering why you asked the question to begin with.

DoreenLethal Mon 12-Sep-16 09:41:17

haha Doreen!

I like them - I had to chuck [well recycle] my non-work boots last week so I've bought some. Lets be clunky and masculine together [my bazookas do tend to give the game away unfortunately]. Vive le revolution in chunky brown suede boots. With decent return policy natch, just in case they really do look too 'masculine'.

DavetheCat2001 Mon 12-Sep-16 09:56:21

Eh Gin?

Of course I wanted opinions, hence starting the thread.

I don't think I have indicated I only wanted to hear positive things at all, unless you can point me to where I have?

Was simply laughing at Doreen's comment

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 12-Sep-16 10:01:15

What are you on about Gin?

I like them OP and they'd go with anything.

0dfod Mon 12-Sep-16 10:07:27

I think that they would look fab with a slightly above kness shortish skirt, thick tights and a wool roll neck jumper.

Oldraver Mon 12-Sep-16 10:17:18

I have these Clarks National Sugar boots and do wear them with leggings and a tunic. They are on the more 'clumpy' side of boots and probably wouldn't go with a delicate dress...I suppose it depends ont he dress

toastymarshmallow Mon 12-Sep-16 10:51:03

Oh they are lovely. I would wear them with everything.

I am on a cheaper budget and I am eyeing up these from new look.

But they aren't as nice so I am having some boot envy right now. grin

NotSureYet Mon 12-Sep-16 11:01:56

They'd be really cute with leggings and dresses. I quite like having contrasting styles in the same outfit, like a flowery/floaty dress with warm leggings and boots in the winter. It's an awesome way to extend the use of summery dresses too. I'm forever just throwing thick tights or leggings on under the summer dress with a nice warm cardigan. Super cute. Rock the boots!!
