They are the last thing you put on in the morning and the final key to completing your outfit; they are the shoes on your feet and they deserve to be acknowledged. This season, there are three styles to focus on and consider adding to your wardrobe.
The ankle boot or booties are a great way to wear high heels that stay on your feet and look great at the same time. Find one that cuts just below your ankle to give shape, or you could suffer from a look that resembles you foot being abruptly cut off.
Look for boots with studs on them for an edgy look or a lot of buckles. Ankle boot wedges are also a great option if you donâ€™t want to teeter on spiked heels. If you are comfortable in heels, there are some beautiful high heels to check out.
This season, spiked heels were on the runway, but on the opposite spectrum was the straight block heel. The width of the heel makes it possible for these to reach heights of four to five inches, and your legs will thank you for making them look amazing. Check out the Louis Vuitton beauty pump for a great example of this heel.
Marilyn Monroe once said, â€œI donâ€™t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.â€ She would definitely be thankful for these sky-high heels.
Something a little more grounding this season, but nonetheless chic, are riding boots. The popularity of boots has grown exponentially over the past few seasons. Walking into a shoe store, you will see several rows dedicated to the current fashion staple. Every girl needs a pair of boots and if you happen to be one of the few who has still not picked out a pair, you have no need to fret as you have the opportunity to get ahead of the game.
In the boot family, riding boots are your cool cousin who lives in New York, and when they come to visit always have a story to tell about how they met this awesome band that no one has heard of. Intriguing, no?
There are a variety of riding boot styles to choose from. Some things to look for are a low heel, nothing slouchy, buckles are always a nice touch and try a brown leather boot. Black is always a great color but it is everywhere and you donâ€™t want to look like everyone else, right? Be a fashion individual.
After a day of walking in any of these shoes your feet may need a little therapy, so donâ€™t forget to thank them for totally rocking these styles. The easiest way is by just running a hot bath and slipping those puppies in. The next day your feet will feel fully ready to strut down any street knowing full well that they look amazing.
