I love winter as much as the next person, but I still get sad thinking about all the shoes I can’t wear during the cold and damp months. Winter, especially in Wisconsin, is reserved for heavy-duty winter boots and old shoes when it comes the time to face the elements, which is a sad day for us shoe fanatics.

I ran into this Fashionista in between classes and was instantly attracted to her heeled ankle boots. They paired very well with her corduroy wine pants and detailed leather jacket, creating the perfect, sophisticated school day outfit.  Her wine colored pants are on point with this seasons jewel tone trend while her leather jacket is a staple piece every girl should have in her closet. It’s contemporary, yet maintains a classic silhouette that will be in style for years to come.

Where most people just wear flat riding boots or ankle boots, this Fashionista rocked a pair of heeled ankle boots which is a fun twist on the boot trend. Its detailed design add to it’s already cool structure. Adding a heel to the always popular boot trend sets her apart from the surplus of riding boots seen around campus while providing a shoe that can trek through the Wisconsin weather; it’s stylish and functional.

To get this look, avoid the flat boots and check out this season’s take on heeled boots. Black or brown is always a great bet for boots, so focus on that color scheme. Find a pair with a little texture like zippers or buckles to add to the shoe’s appeal. They work great with a skinny pant, preferably a fun colored pair to keep some flavor in this weather.  Also, find one without a fur liner because you want these to transition into other seasons, not just winter.

One last tip: make sure to get boots with a manageable heel. You are not trying to walk around campus with five inch stilettos on, so get a reasonable sized heel when you are looked for this style of boot. Get out there and try it.
