STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Chunky Boots For The Win

Wearing heels can often be a daunting task. Stilettos are—for obvious reasons—not ideal for walking around campus and heading to class. Platform boots are a good way to add height, but they’re sometimes a bit too heavy to walk around in every day. Short girls, like myself, often find themselves wanting some height, but not the sore feet at the end of the day. So, whats a girl to do? For myself, boots with a chunky heel are the solution to this problem.

Boots with a thick, sturdy heel, like the pair this Fashionista is rocking, are super comfortable and easy to throw on to make an outfit look put together. The laces on these boots are stylish, and many boots with tie-up laces have a zipper on the back, making them quick and easy to slip on. The distressed look of these boots make them ideal for dressing down a look, but they’re just as easy to dress up.

By pairing her military boots with tight skinny jeans and a flowy top, this Fashionista has created perfect proportions for this outfit. Often times, wearing tight tops with chunky boots can make the boots a bit too overwhelming. This student’s peasant-style tank top has subtle pink touches, which complement the overall neutral color palette of the outfit. The jeans are always a go-to, and can either be tucked into the boots, or rolled up to just above the boot. This Fashionista opted for minimal jewelry, which keeps the look perfectly casual for everyday wear.
