FASHION FROM ABROAD: Keep Calm And Chelsea On

Fashion From Abroad

Ciao once again Fashionistas! Milan has long been known as the fashion capital of the world, hosting fashion weeks, major designers and extremely stylish women for decades. That’s why I was beyond excited to travel there with my Italian design class to visit showrooms this past weekend.

I spotted this Fashionista outside of the Salvatore Ferragamo store, and instantly fell in love with her Chelsea booties! Not only has the Chelsea style boot been seen everywhere over the past year but her choice of one with a slight heel was a great compromise between comfort and style. This style of boot is sold by most brands and comes in almost any color imaginable (it is even sold by Hunter as an adorable rain boot!) With the right outfit to match, Chelsea is sure to be your new best friend this fall and winter — and every other season for that matter.

To go with her shoes, this Fashionista wore a warm and classic white sweater while keeping the rest of her outfit streamlined. She did this by keeping the color of her jeans and her boots the same, making her legs appear longer and her look appear chic and put together. This black and white combination gave her the opportunity to add a trendy piece like her leather moto-jacket with the green detail. Her only accessory was her black bag, which was the perfect choice.

Want to take these booties from day-to-night? Simply wear them with tights and your favorite fall dress for dinner with the girls or pair them with leather leggings and an oversized blouse for an edgier look when going to a concert.

So, whether you’re hooked on riding boots, combat boots or those adorable little flats — give Chelsea a chance. With ankle-length boots making a serious comeback here in Europe and around the world, there no longer needs to be a day of “I-don’t-know-what-shoe-to-wear” distress. Just choose your favorite and rock them. So, in other words, keep calm and Chelsea on!
