Like most people, I love the winter season for two main reasons – one for the delectable gorge-worthy food that winters have to offer and second, for the dressing part. There is some undeniable charm about winter dressing. Most people pull out their stylish best separates from their wardrobe. Layering and styling a lot of pieces of clothing together is a lot of fun and also puts a check on your styling abilities. Winter boots are a favourite with every fashion aficionado out there. There would hardly be a girl who would not have a set of atleast two stylish winter boots in her closet for those chilly windy days of the year.
Boots in winter don’t just look uber chic, but they also help in keeping you warm and snug. I almost have a boot style for every occasion in winter so that I do not have to rely upon wearing any other piece of footwear.
Winter boots ideally look the best in leather or faux leather material, but there are also other options available. Suede, fleece, rubber, faux fur and synthetics are some of the other materials used. While picking a stylish pair, one must definitely look for optimum comfort apart from how stylish the boots look. Since the feet are all covered up in these shoes and one tends to wear them for a longer period, breathability is another important criterion. The inner fabric of the boot should be soft and comforting so that it doesn’t hurt the feet. Make sure your boots have a waterproof lining and do not get ruined in moisture or water.
Though long black or tan brown leather boots are a no-brainer for the classic style, there are a lot of other interesting options out there. Luxury brands like Gucci, Hermes and Louis Vuitton have some rich, out-of-the-box options to choose from. We have researched and listed some of the high-end as well as comfortable winter boot options for our readers. A true blue fashionista ought to have most of these styles to have an impeccable look every time she dresses up in winter. Think through what you need and would love to have in your collection. Invest wisely. These boots do cost a good deal but it is all worth it if you have managed to get a dream pair in your collection.
