The colder months are amongst us now, there’s no stopping it. There’s no hibernation for us. Which means ladies, if you want to be stylish but stay warm, here’s the ultimate guide to the footwear staples for the next few months.
Shoes are a difficult ball game to master during the unpredictable winter we experience as it is but having to go to work in the a.m. does not help the cause. It’s probably a good idea to have a few key footwear pieces that are appropriate for work as well as a drink after.
Small block heels are okay to start with in the early days of the dropping temperatures because they give you an advantage of added security when wondering around frosty surfaces. However, as the weather gets colder, ankle boots are a lifesaver. Ankle boots have always been in fashion, but more so this season. They’re everywhere! Take your pick…
Though ankle boots are super flattering, if you’re not ready to let go of the work skirts and dresses, then depending on the length, long boots would be more advisable. Made for the winter, long boots really elongate your legs and are perfect for the extra cold days!
Though the shoes shown above are comfortable, affordable and stylish, Instagram’s favourite footwear at the moment goes to Tinker Hatfield’s (Nike shoe designer) inner sock invention. Also known as ‘second skin’, sock booties are the outcome of the “sporting-cum-sophisticated” needs. With the increase of high fashion sportswear, it was just a matter of time before “our wardrobes demand streamlined functionality”. Not too long after the ‘athleisure’ movement peaked, top luxury brands such as, Balenciaga, Fendi, Jimmy Choo, etc. got involved in the trend and expanded horizons.
