I love wearing boots. They can bring any casual wear up to being nice or dressy-nice. I have what you would say a collection of boots. Over the years, sometimes, it gets hard for me to get rid of a few pairs of them for various reasons. I remember I was a little sad when I had to give up my first pair. I had owned and worn them from the eighth grade up until my sophomore year of college.
I actually end up naming my boots. Some of them I named myself and some of them other people have named for me. The names are as follows:
-These Boots Are Made for Walking boots
-Pirate Boots II
-Stormy Grey Boots
I've never had all eight of these boots at one time and I would switch out the boots I would wear depending on the color of the shoe and the season.
With it being winter, it is time to bring out your colorful sweaters, scarves, knitted hats, gloves, and jackets and shoes. Leg warmers and arm warmers are making a comeback. If you don't own any you can make a simple and easy pair out of old socks.
Colorful and patterned tights/tights with a design are big right now as well, especially if you wear them shorts, skirts, or jeans with holes in them so the pattern peeks through. Yes, you can wear tights or leggins under jeans. Even though no one can see them, they keep your legs warm through the bitterly cold temperature.
Word of warning though, leggings are only to be worn in place of pants if you are wearing a long enough skirt, dress, or tunic. Leggins are not pants.
Knitted hats or bean hats have always been a staple for winter wear. You can find them at most clothing stores or if you know how to knit, you can easily whip up a hat in a variety of colors and styles that would make people ask you where you got it. Scarves are a must have as well. These days there are various types but a popular scarf this year is the hooded scarf. You can wear it around your head to protect yours ears from the cold and then pull it down to have it worn casually around your neck.
Don't put away your colorful sweaters too quickly. Even though Christmas is over, pattered and designed sweaters are a must have during the winter season. They can easily bring up the look of a regular pair of jeans. Plus, if you have a sweater tunic, they would look great with both tights/leggins or pants.
Finally, with jackets, really any jacket will do. Pea-coats are great for women to give them that feminine look. What is also big are faux-fur trims on the jacket like a hood or even faux-fur vests. It adds a classic sleek style to your look and you won't be harming animals in the process.
Don't forget these tips to bring up your winter fashion.
