STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Beauty Does Not Have To Mean Pain

A new trend interest that has developed lately in the fashion world is shoe design, from platform sandals to the tennis shoe obsession and for winter, the chunky bootie. As most trends lately have been approaching the whole 1990s grunge idea or the 1950s British Twiggy approach, it is only appropriate that the chunky heeled bootie make its reappearance.

This Fashionista pulls this 1990s grunge trend in very well with her everyday obsession with neutrals. Going with a classic dark brown wash insures that they will go with anything in her wardrobe. The chunky heeled bootie is such a great trend because it allows you to gain height and also dress up an outfit in more of a casual way. Like a wedge, the boot is also much easier to walk in and way more comfortable than a pair of heels, which is what this Fashionista is all about!

So why is this 1990s trend reappearing so successfully? As the bootie has been popular, it has been upgraded into a very versatile, comfortable trend that even campus and city walkers can enjoy! Some of the many trends that correlate well to the chunky heeled bootie are tights and dresses, as you see this Fashionista wearing, tapered pants and a blazer for a dressier look or just casual with jeans and a cardigan. This boot can be grungy, alternative, casual and dressy to fit your wardrobe needs.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Comfort! In the winter you can not try as much and still look cute, but be comfortable. For me though, shoes especially have to be comfortable because I go to school in a city and I have to do a lot of walking.”
