Style Advice of the Week

I don’t know about you guys. but it seems that the colder it gets, the harder it is to be stylish. We all know “beauty is pain,” but are we willing to freeze our butts off about it? The most stylish items that can actually keep us warm in single digit weather aren’t usually college-budget friendly. But by experimenting and throwing in a little sass, you can turn an item that works for weather into one that works for style too.

I caught this Fashionista strutting in her boots while keeping warm. What caught my eye is her stylish yet casual approach with a boot that most would wear on an adventurous hike. She went with a staple wardrobe piece and dark wash denim jeans, making them chic by adding a cuff. Her cross-body bag, that you can find here, believe it or not also changes the dynamic of her ensemble. It’s a bag that she wears with her boots, but can also be worn with heels or a nice bootie—this adds a girlish touch. You can also try this type of boot if you’re going for a more urban look.

It’s fun to experiment with your style so try this boot as a challenge. You don’t have to go specific store to find these. Just stopping by the mall can save you the hassle, or you can find them here. The boots that this Fashionista is specifically rocking are a kids’ size, but don’t worry because kids and women sizes correlate with this brand. If the normal nubuck color that she’s rocking isn’t your shade then you’re in luck because you can customize your own pair here. Go even further and really put a twist on them by adding spikes and a cool print to them; Basically Bangin customizes boots to your liking. And don’t worry about the price, the boot is included!
