Boot wearing season is almost upon us, which means its time to find a warm, cozy, stylish pair that can be worn throughout the fall and winter months. Fashion trends seem to come and go, but this year it seems every style of boot is in fashion. You’ll find everything from short ankle-length boots to super, long thigh-high ones. Here are a few favorites:
Thigh High Boots
Thigh high boots will most definitely keep your legs warm, as the weather gets colder. While you can wear them over skinny jeans, they are most often paired with mini-skirts that show a thin line of skin between the top of the boot and the bottom of your hemline. You can also wear them with modern blazers, sweater dresses, long ponchos and pleated skirts. These body-conscious beige and grey suede options by Balmain are styled with pointed toes and pencil-thin stiletto heels.
Knee High Boots
Knee high boots provide an extra layer of warmth on a very cold day. They are just as stylish as thigh-high boots and allow you to show just a little more skin. Knee high boots can be worn in simple black and brown shades like the pair on the left by L’autre Chose or you can find interesting prints or extra special details like this pair with a long line of silver tone buttons. Knee high boots are often paired with pleated skirts and short dresses.
Lace Up Boots
Lace-up boots are another popular option this year. Both short and long boots are now available with lace-up options. Check out the smooth black suede boots from Sergio Rossi that come complete with a lace-up front and a tall thick heel. For those looking for a shorter boot the UGG Australia leather ankle boots might fit the bill. These shearling boots will provide an extra layer of warmth on a cold winter day.
Platform boots first became popular in the 1970s, but they made a reemergence in the early 90s and are showing up again on runways this season. Designers seem to love the design of these high, thick-soled shoes. Platform shoes can be worn over jeans or styled with a short dress or skirt. Check out these chestnut suede, lace front, natural crepe platform wedges by Burberry Shoes or the smooth black leather platforms by Robert Clergerie.
Black Patent Leather Boots
While suede boots seem to be the most popular this year a lot of black patent leather is also making its way into stores this season. This high-shine, glossy pair of black patent leather ankle boots from Pierre Hardy are sure to make a statement with buckle fastening straps and embellished back tabs. If you like a simpler design choose this plain black patent combat boot that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
It seems there are very few rules when it comes to boots this season. You can wear them high or low, fully embellished or simple and plain. Search for these boots and many more at StyleBop where you can find the perfect boot to suit any style.
