50’s 60’s 70’s
Riding Boots for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: On the Outside
Quote of the day: “A wise system of education will at last teach us how little man yet knows, how much he has still to learn.” John Lubbock, Sr.
Since you most likely paid extra for a taller boot (as opposed to an ankle boot), you might as well show it off! One of the modern looks for a riding boot is to tuck your jeans into them. If you want to try this, just make sure the jeans are close fitting throughout the leg…it looks funny to have extra material pouching out on top of the boot. Practical tip: Tucking your jeans into your socks first makes the entire process easier! Visit Riding Boots 1 to see these same boots paired with dresses!
50’s Riding Boots: I was never going to buy red jeans thinking they were too young for me…but, really, why would a color be off limits to an age group? And this necklace? It’s reversible….same design, but turquoise on the other side!
60’s Riding Boots: Since Nancy’s boots are burgundy, I kept the top half of the outfit in the same burgundy color scheme. I knitted this sweater for myself first, but then gave it to Nancy since it looked so good on her (then I made myself another one)!
70’s Riding Boots: The riding boots also work fabulously with leggings! We then add a punch of color by donning the burgundy cardigan sweater!

Riding boots can be one item that is easier to order online–you can always order them slightly bigger and wear heavy socks with them!
