Most Stylish Boots Of Fall 2014

Every gal needs a good pair of boots to get her through those colder months. This fall, the boots – like the clothes – are wild. Sixties-mod styles dominate, but there is no shortage of quirkiness if you’re brave enough. Be inspired by these fall runway looks.

Knee-high and thigh-high boots

You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of knee-high boots, like Valentino‘s wide-legged, heels – perfect for both day and night occasions. However, we also love Alexander Wang‘s fresh, modern take on the style, with his low-heeled, tri-toned thigh-highs.

Block heels

On-trend with the popular mod look, are these Lanvin (left) and Gucci (right) boots with square, block heels. Blue is a popular color this season, as is the tan leather.

Textures and prints

Snakeskin patterns and reptile textures are hot – just see Tom Ford and Gucci (left-right). However, Valentino is also making waves with his colorful retro-print ankle boots (pictured top).

Straps, buckles and laces

Adornments of all kinds were seen on the fall runway, but my personal favorites are the Isabel Marant stiletto boot, and Louis Vuitton‘s tan ankle boot with a patent finish.

Flat and casual

Calvin Klein showed a range of sporty sneaker-boots at his show, but the velvet-textured Doc Martin replicas are the street-friendly winner. Also loving Rick Owens‘ boots/tights/sneakers combo shoe.

Our Favourite Winter Trends

The weather is getting cold and gloomy but this doesn’t mean your clothes have to be dull as well. Winter is one of the best times of the year to show off your personal style and involves some of our favourite trends here at SHESAID.

This is our checklist for the must-have essentials this season influenced by the wearable items straight from the runway:

Coats

The elegance of the coat makes it a timeless piece, one colour to flaunt is navy blue, the dark intensity is a standout this winter, it seems popular as a nice change from the usual black. If you want to make the look a bit different to your normal silhouette, wear a short or long coat with oversized shoulders, Balenciaga and Gucci have both channeled this recently in their collections, this 80’s style revival has been a hit in street style too, with top heavy becoming one of the biggest trends this year.

Boots

I’m sure you all know by now that boots are a must have. Here are the three boot styles you should invest in:

  • Ankle boot: Guaranteed to look chic whether they are heeled or flat both will also lengthen your legs and make you feel sexy at any time of the day.
  • Over-the-knee boot: This trend has seen numerous famous fashion bloggers working it this season, perfect with an A-line dress and coat.
  • Work style: As Australians the work boot is part of a practical lifestyle; Dr. Martens are easy to find in an op shop for less than $70, or if you want a pair nice and cheap, replicas are available from many fast fashion shoe stores.

Jeans

Most online and physical stores are having their End of Year Financial Sale, therefore it is the best time to take advantage and buy a new pair of jeans. Glue Store now have jean specialised fitters, this would be a great way to find a pair you love and you know are the right fit. If you are more interested in what is on trend, grab a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, the loose look is flattering and works well with a basic tee and blazer.

There you have it, our three necessities this winter. Happy shopping!

Bedtime Fashion


I have done some checking on the Web for great PJ’s and slippers. Tell you what – it’s not easy to find slick and affordable night gear – it’s all pretty bad to tell you the truth. Although I discovered the www.peteralexander.com.au site and it has everything from bed linen to candles.

Look great around the house this winter with Peter Alexander boots, ($59.50) and spot pyjamas, ($69.50).
