Winter Footwear Dejour

Filed under: Shoes — luxebeaute @ 3:14 am

I love the Winter months. Not because I enjoy cozying up on the couch listening to the rain whilst getting all introspective like, but for much more superficial reasons… All Summer, I look forward to first sign of gloomy whether so that I may breakout my jackets, scarves and boots! Yes, I am deep.

Though it is only Winter in theory, as Whether wise,  Californian Mother Nature is being quite schizophrenic. Even so, shoe designers in all price ranges have a lot to offer this Winter. Tall boots have been kept somewhat plain but I say go for whatever catches your eye and represents you. I like classic and chic but I also can’t resist an excellently embellished knee-high. Especially if its retro look, bright, or embroidered.

Somehow, designers have managed to keep overly embellished looks from coming off as cheap; and a surprising amount of companies that I typically brush off as for the under 30 crowd (Rock & Republic, Collin Stewart for VS, Guess) are designing chic looks which can easily be mistaken for their high end counterpart. Imagine my surprise when my eyes led my body (and wallet) toward a lovely platform whilst online shopping which looked like it could have been a pair of Valentino’s, but were actually Guess! These my dear readers, are the surprises I like- and I don’t do surprises.

If you do not own any yet,  this time to upgrade and invest in a pair of really good quality knee high or over the knee boots.  You will get a lot of bang for your buck, considering they are masters of disguises of sorts- they look equally great with knee length dresses. Ditto for the ankle boot, which seems to survive the test of time. These will both come back into play fashionwise at some point within the years to come- trust me I know, as this Winter is the PERFECT time for me to break out my Topnotch lace up boots by Charles David and my Dollhouse Ciru Studed ankle boots, and a pair of suede ankle Bandelinos (in which I have had for 10 yrs) from storage.

Don’t be afraid of these particular boot trends, embrace them!
