Whether constructed in exotic skins or soft leather, a stunning pair of boots and coats are essential to any fall and winter wardrobe. This season, like many before, the best footwear is by way of designers Gianvito Rossi, Saint Laurent, and Alexandre Birman, among others.
While I dread the declining temperatures, winter’s arrival sparks the beginning of a new fashion season. Say hello to knee high socks, coats, scarves, turtle necks, alpaca, angora, fur, suede, leather, wool and the list goes on. ‘Tis the season of layering!
Multiple layers not only keep you warm, but developing an art of layering means more clothing options, accessories and decisions—essentially emphasizing your personal style.
A great coat and a boot is an important winter wardrobe staple.
Worn every day and usually the most visible, coats and jackets can range from a couple of dollars (if it is a vintage steal) and upward. Such a wardrobe staple is an investment (and that means long term) so it’s important to invest in items that you could see yourself wearing for years to come. Even if you initially love an item, its appeal can dwindle and eventually seem dull in the following seasons.
So, how do you keep the spice alive while maintaining a budget? A simple styling suggestion is to add a boot to your jacket. (match it up with the same color or diffrent color.
If you have a classic coat, then opt for a solid heel boot and add some funk into your look. Styling with a contrast boot color will make your jacket “pop” and give it a whole new feel.
Thrift stores and boutiques shops are a great place to score unique one-of-a-kind boots. As an alternative, fabric, twine and rope could be used instead. If you really want to be creative, then add a trim detail to the sleeves or hem of your jacket too. Flirting with belts and styling techniques keep your coats exciting without going over budget. Below are five winter trends to shop to style for boots + coat.
