We are in the middle of January, which means we still have at least two cold winter months to go. While cuddling up in cozy teddy jackets has become a ritual this season, it’s now time to think about the feet. Luckily, there are enough versions of shoes, in which you can feel warm and stylish at the same time.
The Season of Boots
Shoes are made for walking. Well, this might be one side of the coin. For this fall/winter season however, various designers decided to make the whole story a bit more special and the runways gave us plenty of ideas. The furry shearling boots at Chloé are just one example. With their extra fluffy comfort, they are probably the highest up in the top 10 of functional winter boots, which still look cool and fashionable at the same time. If you are up for a more sophisticated shoe trend, let’s stick to the several variations in white as they were shown at Balenciaga or Maison Martin Margiela. As they represent the minimal style perfectly, white boots are the ideal companions for easy-going and cool looks. The good thing is, you can find them in isolating and warming versions, which are perfect for the cold season. Plus, they can easily be paired with some comfy socks.
Last but not least, a less sleek but more extravagant shoe trend is the glitter boot. While the white boots are inspired by the Space Age of the 60s, the shimmery versions remind of galaxies and star constellations. After they were seen at the shows of Chanel or Saint Laurent, they rapidly made their way through several Instagram feeds. By now, you can find them in all variations at several labels and online-shops. Even though the shimmery effect might appear as pretty striking, the boots are actually the perfect all-rounders. The only condition is to keep the rest of the look classy and simple. After all, this is what snowy winter looks are all about: once the key-pieces are set, you can mix and match them with different shoes. So let’s invest in some of those wintery friends before the cold times are over – which may or may not occur too soon.
