Fall has arrived again and, I find myself scavenging for the boots online and in my closet. I can't help
myself looking beyond the uggs. what other trends can contain my entusiiasm that dont involve 5 pounds of suede giving my feet heat rash. I love heels with a passion but, at 5'11'', sometimes, I don't enjoy people craining their necks to look up at me and hold a conversation for as long as their necks can hold up their heads. For my size, I would go to the 2'' heel so its not too tall, and the heel of the shoe doesn't get confused with a 5 year old's shoe, Flat boots can be great as long as they look fitted and don't look like you cut off the paws of a snow beast. I am really feeling the fringe trend for an on-the-go bohemian look especially with jeggings (jean leggings) and a ligh hued top and over sized vest to glam up the somewhat casual ensemble. For those night out on the town, I would step it up and rock the booties with a bow conventionally placed on the side to a flirty touch that doesn't over whelm the shoe, When looking at booties, go for one that has a slit along the tounge, or else you'll have that strange cut off on the ankle which makes your legs look shorter than they are and for a thin heel to elegonate the back of your legs. A shoe like that doesn't deserve to look like someone glued a block to the arch.
The only kind of boots that can pull off the block like heel is the kind that have the oxford design which should be worn as conservativly as the shoe was designed for, perhaps a sheer button up and a high waist skirt or pants? My style of choice would have to be the wedge heel (no sinking in the snow and easy to walk in, how can you beat that?). A cool trend I have stumbled upon is the corset lacing around the front for an edgy feel If I need a boost to a somewhat "safe" ensemble. How can you write and put your concentration on fall boots without mentioning the classic and sexy calf-length boot. I say calf length because I think that if you dare for thigh high you are trying for the "superwoman" look, which looks embarrasingly cheesy. Theres also rules when looking for the simply sexy calf length boots. To show off the legs, look for the ones that fit like a glove and not the ones that "wrinkle" or "cinch" in unsusually areas. They look unflattering on the legs, think of a garbage bag tied around your legs and wrinkled. Thats not flattering and does nothing for your style. Also think conventionally for your legs and feet, and give them room to breathe. You don't want to look like you taped plastic wrap to your feet. If you follow these steps and put your own spin on the styles, then YOU have mastered the footwear of the fall!
