ACCESSORIES REPORT: These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

Accessories Report

Fall is in full swing here in Bloomington. As the days are becoming chillier, it’s getting more and more difficult for Fashionistas to rock any footwear that does not involve warm socks. The solution is a pair of shoes that will be as versatile as sandals, comfortable enough for everyday wear and still look chic in order to avoid the sweats and Uggs fiasco. Does a miracle shoe that fits all the above criteria actually exist? The answer is yes, and it's a simple leather boot.

This Fashionista displays all of the leather boots' great qualities. Instead of resorting to pajama bottoms and slippers after class, she kept it casual but stylish by adding motorcycle-style boots to her simple ensemble. The black leather adds an edgy feel to her neutral cardigan and jeans. The neat thing about leather boots is that they come in so many colors and styles that just switching out your boots can completely change the vibe of your outfit. For example, if this Fashionista had opted for a pair of riding boots like these, her outfit would have taken on a preppy, all-American feel. Conversely, these fringed boots would have channeled a hippie spirit.

If your alarm didn’t go off this morning, you haven’t done laundry in weeks or you don’t feel like dressing for a New York runway, you can still look chic without all the effort. Tuck your jeans into a great pair of boots, top it all off with a scarf and be on your way.

Spotted: Leather boots were featured in Tommy Hilfiger’s fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection.
