Style Advice of the Week

Welcome back to Pittsburgh, Fashionistas/os! Pittsburgh has greeted us in the only way it knows how, with rain, sleet and a handful of other sloppy winter messes. As easy as it is to throw on your most tethered footwear to manage the weather, there are so many other great options that are not only durable, but also adorable.

This Fashionista is battling Pittsburgh’s winter weather in style, wearing a pair of glossy, gray wellington boots to slop through the slush. The gray color of the boots works perfectly with her dark wash jeans. The opposition in color tones compliment each other, yet do not clash due to the colors that are relatively in the same family. Paired with a long brown trench, this Fashionista is ready to embrace the cold while keeping fashion on her mind. The length of the trench coat corresponds with the height of the boots, leaving just enough of her jeans exposed but still demonstrating how the boots hit her knee.

If you are looking to get more adventurous with your winter weather footwear this season, there are plenty of options to keep things interesting. You could try these lace-up wellies, which would not only be great for everyday wear but could also be paired with tights and a warm wool skirt to spice things up. For those Fashionistas who have no fear, there’s also the high-heeled wellie, a great choice for adding a sense of softness and elegance to something that could normally appear bold and chunky at times.

So the wellie boot, as shown by this Fashionista, is perfect for combating Pittsburgh’s weather in your own style. With such a variety of style options, colors and even accessories to add to your boots, there is a pair that compliments every Fashionista’s individual look. Wellies should be in every girl’s closet, always there to help you sing “rain, rain go away” any day of the week.
