There is one thing that has been walking all over the fashion scene, dominating runways and classrooms alike: motorcycle boots. Typically, those Fashionistas keeping up with the latest trend rock the ankle-height, folded-down black military-style version, but little have I seen of a different take on the look.
When I saw this Fashionista, I was instantly impressed by her choice of shoe. I love her slightly-higher-than-the-ankle, brown and copper two-toned boots. The lace-up detail and overall rustic appearance add to the military feel of the pair, which she informed me she found on sale at DSW in New York. The color was a fresh and interesting take on the up and coming trend.
Upon opening her black, double-breasted pea coat, I found that the color of her boots also created a mix-and-match palette with the rest of her ensemble. Her gray, wrap-around chunky knit sweater – cinched at the waist with a wide black belt – and matching metallic-gray leggings created a cozy, winter-like outfit – practical, perfectly chic and most importantly, Thanksgiving-appropriate. She also paired her sweater with a longer, draping white tee underneath – a great way to keep your leggings from being worn as pants – and a wrapped up black knitted scarf – can’t forget to accessorize!
Hint: Ready to join the motorcycle trend? There are plenty of ways to look edgy and biker-chic. Try a similar pair of boots, throw on a cropped leather jacket, (this one has a winter feel) or pair faux-leather pants with your shoe of choice. Remember, a different color than black will definitely make a statement!
