STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Never Fear The Snow Boot

January 14th, 2015 at 2:00am

This frigid weather in Nebraska has everyone swapping flats and sneakers for something more fitting to fight off the cold, snow boots. If your relationship with snow boots is anything like it is with me, then you don’t take too fondly to them. They always seem so chunky and awkward. I never know what to pair them with!

However, whenever I see someone who can pull them off, I’m amazed and immediately want to go buy myself a pair and make it work. Around campus, you mainly see them styled in a sporty way. Although sporty chic is very interesting and comfortable, it gets a little old seeing the same legging, puffer vest and snow boot combination.

This Fashionista definitely has the snow boot trend down to a science. She paired these The North Face boots with a flared suede pant and brought a touch of delicacy with a top that had subtle lace detail. This combination gave off a boho vibe that I was definitely drawn to.

Now that I have some inspiration to go off of, I might go ahead and make the daunting purchase. It’d be interesting to see how boots similar to this Fashionista’s would pair with a pair of patterned corduroys or with warm leggings and a long tunic.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Take trends and put your own creative twist on them to make yourself stand out. If I find myself at Forever 21, I shop the mismatched racks to find cheap, nearly one-of-a-kind pieces. Goodwill is also a good place to find unique pieces, but use with caution!”
