STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bring On the Snow Boots

With the temperature and snow ceaselessly falling, snow boots are a must for any college student braving the dreaded Winter Vortex 2.0. This Fashionista stylishly prepares for a snowy semester with her black Dr. Martens. From running building to building to escape the near-tundra weather, a waterproof boot is essential.

Dr. Marten shoes are associated with the 1980s punk movement and also the 1990s grunge styles. To this day, these punk and grunge connotations are still in play. Furthermore, as this Fashionista informed me, Dr. Martens are great for icy and snowy weather because they are waterproof and slip-proof. Therefore, Dr. Martens make for an excellent and stylish snowshoe. If you love the boots but not the price, try Target’s take on these grungy boots!

Although this Fashionista wore the Dr. Martens for their practicality and fashionable appeal, these boots can be worn in all seasons for their easily identifiable edgy look. For winter, dress like this Fashionista! Match them with tall wool socks for added warmth and to create a cozy and relaxed style. In the summer, pair these boots with high-waisted jean shorts for a 1990s-inspired grunge look.

Having snowshoes is critical for students who go to a college where the snow falls freely for the majority of the winter. However, as this Fashionista demonstrated, one does not have to sacrifice style for functionality. These boots are a great way to stay dry, warm and most of all, fashionable.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Layers, therefore, warmth! Just because it is cold does not mean that your outfits can’t be cute and fashionable. Cardigans and long sleeves are great— that’s what I’ll be wearing all winter!”
