These Boots Were Made For Walking

May 2, 2016

With temperatures starting to drop it’s no secret that Winter is right around the corner… and what’s a must for every Winter? A pair of boots of course.

Skimping on proper good quality footwear is never an option, especially during Winter. No matter how many pairs of boots I own I still find myself browsing the stores trying to find that perfect pair of boots that are a.) Waterproof. I cannot stand wet socks! b.) Durable c.) comfortable and d.) of course stylish.

Layering is key during the colder months and I’ve teamed my cosy turtle neck with the ultimate double breasted military coat, a pair of fish nets (yes you heard me right, when was the last time you wore a pair of fishnets?) maroon Chelsea rain boots, a classic gumboot with a sleek style upgrade, and a simple clutch.

There’s something rather sleek about carrying around a clutch bag instead of a tote or cross-body. They form an essential part of any wardrobe, and can transform your look from classic to cool in a flash. Or course I opted for the more minimal clutch, though I did make sure that they matched my boots. The Perry Clutch from Witchery also comes in black and it’s on sale.

For a classic take on the Seventies I teamed a navy turtle neck (because sometimes it’s nice to take a break from black.) with a pair of cropped, frayed denims and tan leather accessories: the skinny belt and block studded heels, the two must have accessories this winter.

Belts are often the go to accessory to enhance the seasons latest trend. For an evening look add a velvet or bejewelled belt. For a feminine look and a way to enhance your figure when wearing a winter knit or your favourite winter coat add a waist belt that helps clinch in the waist line. Or for a simple, minimal update add a thin tan or black belt to your look.

Let’s talk about the block heel. Seen on the runway thanks to designers such as Anthony Vaccarello and Dior, the block heel is a comfortable and reliable heel. This particular pair has some added flair with it’s gold studs and double buckles. What’s not to love?

What’s your must have accessories for this Winter?
