STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Perfect Chelsea

Can you recall those times when you’re stuck on a trend and have searched just about every store looking for the perfect style, fit and price? That has been my dilemma lately with the popular ankle bootie. What caught my eye about this Fashionista on campus recently were her shoes. The Chelsea boot trend has been worn in men’s fashion for decades, but has recently flooded women’s wardrobes everywhere. This particular style of ankle boot is categorized by its elastic sides, creating a simplified approach for taking off and on. The Chelsea provides an extremely versatile silhouette that works just as well with jeans as it does with a dress.

This Fashionista demonstrates one of the many ways this boot can be worn. She starts with a sleek, polished look in her military jacket. To dress down her outfit, she pairs this with your basic skinny jeans. She accessorizes with a purple knitted scarf for warmth and the perfect Chelsea bootie giving her look a more casual, utilitarian style.

Fortunately these boots are not limited to only one season and time. You can pull these off in the summer with a pair of shorts or a sun dress. They also come in different heights. On a night out you can grab a pair with a two inch heel and throw on some stockings and a skirt.
