What will you be wearing this winter? It’s not too soon to start thinking about your autumn-winter wardrobe. If you want to know all about the top boot trends for the 2017 season, read on.
French fashion hints
Recent shows on the runways of Paris presented some very interesting boot options for 2017 winter and autumn. Among them were dazzling pearl-studded combat boots from Altuzarra and soon-to-trend metal-tipped cowgirl boots from Calvin Klein. Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and the House of Chanel are also offering a splendid selection of boots to take fashion savvy girls from September 2017 to March 2018 in style, reports Vogue magazine.
From ankle high to mid-calf to over-the-knee, this year’s autumn and winter boots are all about showing off colours and shapes that make a statement. Dries Van Nonten boots in jewel coloured velvet are sure to be seen on the sidewalks of New York this season. Thigh-high silver foil Balenciagas, maybe not so much.
If you think that you can’t pull off the outrageous over-the-knee boots look without attracting the wrong sort of attention, tone down their overt flirtatiousness when you wear them over skinny jeans and a cashmere jumper or try them on with an A-line midi skirt, recommend style mavens at Marie Claire.
In many corners of the world, snow boots are a must-have. This doesn’t mean they must be dreary. On the contrary, 2017 snow boots can be as groovy as you want them to be. At more than a grand per pair, Nicholas Kirkwood ankle-high sporty boots with non-skid soles may not be for everyone, but they sure are cute. A pair of fur-lined Wellington style boots from Sorel will keep your tootsies toasty warm and only set you back around $170, says Harper’s Bazaar.
Boots are basic to autumn and winter wardrobes, and the more pairs you have, the better. The cooler seasons present a variety of temperatures, so it’s a great idea to own sidewalk gripping snow boots as well as several pairs of flirty ankle boots with varying heel heights.
Boot accessory must-haves
Of course, you’ll want high-quality leggings and plenty of boot socks to don with your wintertime footwear. Shop online to find colourful cable knits and funky patterns that boost your mood while keeping your feet warm. Don’t skimp on comfort by wearing too-tight socks. Invest in a few pairs of wide calf boot socks by BCS and you’ll tread through autumn-winter 2017 in style.
Lace-up Victorian boots make a steampunk statement that might be just right for you. Feminine and super retro, Victorian boots can be paired with lacy toppers for extra ankle warmth on chilly December days.
Winter and autumn are sensational seasons in which to show your individual style. Choose boots that fit and step into the cold with panache and pizzazz. Remember that a pop of colour here and there makes winter wear even more enjoyable.
