I find red boots intimidating. What about you?

They’re bold, flashy, and they catch attention without fail. But if you’re looking to fashion a pair for the first time, try taking a cue from the style pros.

Here’s a getup from Rosie Huntington Whiteley that might be worth copying. The stunning supermodel was spotted out and about with her pup in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. For the activity, she wore a casual getup of ripped black skinny jeans and a gray t-shirt. Topping off the combo were a denim jacket, a Gucci embroidered purse, and a pair of fire-engine red ankle boots.

I don’t know about you, but I found the combination surprisingly chic and on-point. The red boots and embroidered purse should have clashed considering they were both statement making, but Rosie managed to pull them off.

So can you rock ’em red boots like Rosie here? Would you wear her outfit?

Rosie’s red boots are from Balenciaga. The silhouette is very timeless, featuring pointed toes, slim self-covered heels, and narrow boot openings for a snug fit. I’m guessing the boots come in varied heel heights because I found a shorter version over at MyTheresa.

Rosie’s Gucci purse can be had for $3800 if you’re interested. Her sunglasses and jeans are available online too. They’re from Saint Laurent and Paige Denim, respectively.

Of course, you need not grab these designer pieces to steal Rosie’s style. Substitute the clothes with items from your closet and finish the mix with these red boots from Sam Edelman:
