The temperatures are dipping and as the season grows colder we’re becoming more and more limited in our footwear choices. Gone are the days of slipping on a pair of sandals and we’re frantically searching for a new pair of boots to add to our collection. Motorcycle boots and ankle booties have been all the rage at VCU these past couple seasons, but what spin can we take on our beloved staple this year?
This Fashionista I spotted was rocking a pair of booties that gave her ensemble a cool, chic edge. She donned an oversized Fair Isle sweater, an impeccably tailored pair of dark skinny jeans and a must-have pair of lace-up booties. She made this look her own with a pair of statement earrings and an olive green tote.
These lace-up booties are slimmer and more streamlined than the combat boot we’re so used to seeing on campus. It’s a unique spin on an incredibly popular trend. This type of boot will still make any ensemble a bit more edgy while still having you look put together. The heel is high enough to give any look a healthy dose of glamour, yet small enough to run around campus all day with ease. These boots from Steve Madden and DSW are two budget-friendly options for any fashionable coed.
Not only will these boots make your outfit, but they are remarkably versatile as well. Rock them with a pair of skinny jeans like this Fashionista did or pair them with dresses and skirts (don’t forget the tights!) The styling possibilities are endless for this sharp boot.
