Fashionable Footwear for Winter

Posted by rafael on December 13, 2012 in Fashion & Style

Dressing stylishly in winter means you need to pay attention to your footwear too. It’s important to dress for the weather with warm, waterproof shoes, but women’s winter shoes can be fashionable as well as practical. You only need a few different pieces of winter footwear to look stylish in all types of weather and occasions. Don’t be afraid to spend time and money finding the perfect pair of winter boots, since they should be treated as an ‘investment’ piece you will be wearing for years.

Tall Leather Boots Are In

Tall leather boots are a classic look for women and perfect for winter. There are a range of styles to choose from. One that never goes out of fashion is the classic riding boot, in black or brown leather with straps and a low heel. Riding boots look good with jeans or trousers as well as skirts. Platform boots with heels look a bit dressier and can give a retro 70s-style feel. A more recent fashion is very tall boots that reach to above the knee. You need to be confident to wear this style, but it is a perfect look for women who want to stand out. Another option is to branch out and choose a colour besides black or brown—two tone boots with blocks of different colours look really stylish this winter.

Or Perhaps an Ankle Boot?

Ankle boots are another option that looks great. A style that is really trendy in 2012 and goes with just about anything is the chelsea boot, a low-heeled boot with elastic sides. These boots were fashionable in the 1960s and were even worn by stormtroopers in the original Star Wars films. More masculine styles such as military, lace-up hiking boots, and cowboy style boots are also popular, and plain styles can have details such as glitter and studs. The most important factor in the look of an ankle boot is the heel. Flat or low heels have a casual look, while chunky heels are more stylish. Tall, skinny heels are feminine but not very practical in wet weather. Wedge heels are very popular at the moment and a great option, since they combine height with a more casual and comfortable style.

Impractical Is Never a Good Look!

Remember that you will always look most stylish when you are wearing weather appropriate footwear. Fabric boots may be comfortable, but they won’t serve their purpose once they get wet. With a pair of good quality boots you will feel comfortable and look polished.
