With winter in full swing (yes, us Angelenos consider sixty and below winter conditions), it’s time to bust out the layers, scarves and, of course, boots! With so many variations of the boot, a Fashionista can never go wrong experimenting with different types. Whether it’s over the knee, to the knee or below it, boots are a must-have this season. They easily complete any winter ensemble and add a chic downtown vibe.
This week’s Fashionista is sporting a simple, yet detailed black bootie from Urban Outfitters. I loved her look; with her maroon colored denim and an oversized black sweater, her black boots did a fantastic job of pulling the look together. Her sweater slits created a peek-a-boo effect as well, which I absolutely adore. Her black booties are detailed with two buckles and a chunky heel, making it the perfect winter appropriate ankle booties. Though I am usually a fan of pops of color in outfits, her color combination is a great pallet for winter season. Her maroon denim is a nice surprise to contrast the black of her ensemble.
Inspired by her boots, I searched Urban Outfitters to find her shoes. Though not identical, this similar variation is a perfect pair for a chilly day. Pair it with a your favorite skinny jeans or funky printed tights. A thick heel always adds a bohemian chic look, so add a chunky sweater over it. The chunky sweater will allow you the opportunity to pair with your favorite winter accessories: scarves, hats and mittens.
So yes, the black ankle boot is fantastic. It may not be for everyone, so never be afraid to experiment with different types of boots. They are practical for the colder weather and are a great alternative to the common shoe. Getting cozy is not only sensible, but it is fun and allows the imagination to run free. So allow your imagination to get a little wild and crazy, and gear up for this upcoming season!
