With the chilly weather upon us, we’re finally ready to start breaking out the coats as we put our layering skills to the test. Gearing up in new winter clothing is just as fun as playing dress-up was for us when we were young, but we’d be remiss to leave out one of the most important (and perhaps the most fun!) elements of winter style that works just as hard to keep us both warm and fashionable.
Did someone say, “Bring on the boots?” There are just too many fabulous and wearable boot trends available this season to commit to one pair.
PopSugar said it best: “The shoe that dominates the season has so many fresh new styles, you’ll want to add a friend to that basic black boot in your closet.” It’s time to find some new friends for your trusty black boots, and these new friends come in all shapes and sizes.
Take a look at the best winter boot trends that were definitely made for walking.
Reach for the stars… or at least above the knees! Thigh-high boots have been reveling in their fashion moment, with various styles spanning the spectrum. Lace-up thigh-highs are a dash of dainty, whereas suede styles are sure to keep those legs warm while helping you look hot!
Just because snow boots serve a function doesn’t mean they can’t merge form as well. In fact, Harper’s Bazaar believed in the possibility of fashionable snow boots, and they rounded up 10 styles for your browsing pleasure. Heeled snow boots sound like everything our winter wardrobes needs.
When you can’t decide on a solid colour, why not bring a few shades into the equation? Patchwork boots are all the rage this season. Whether existing in reptile skin varieties or smooth suede, you can find a mismatched, patchy pair in just about any height, too.
For low-key days when heels just don’t feel right, Lyst says to “work androgynous cool in wear-anywhere flats,” and we’re giving the suggestion a big thumbs up. Blurring gender lines is more chic than ever in the fashion world, and slipping into a relaxed pair of flats is the perfect way to try out your gender play.
A fall favourite that always strolls into winter with ease, ankle booties are a classic silhouette that has footwear fashion in its grasp. Always ranking at the top of a must-have trend list, the short style looks great with a variety of outfits. Want to add a little zest to your bootie game? Look for a fringed pair; Western wear is of-the-moment.
No matter your taste, one of these five winter boot trends is sure to catch your eye—and don’t fight it. It’s normal to want many pairs of stunning shoe styles, and some people might even go as far to say it’s healthy to have a few options!
