Hey everyone. Today’s post will be a bit different as I’m not the one who wrote it. Yep, it’s another guest post. The last time I had a guest post on here, you were given a couple of gift guides. Now, Gerta Jones is bringing you a list of must-have boots this winter. Before we get into the post, though, let’s learn a little about Gerta.
Gerta Jones is a freelance writer from Omaha, Nebraska. She has written for clients like Demand Media and the Omaha World-Herald. When she isn’t working on DIY projects with her two daughters, Lauryn and Lila, she’s volunteering at her local pet shelter.
Now, enjoy her list of must-have boots this winter.
Neither rain nor sleet nor snow will stop you from looking your best. It’s winter, but that doesn’t mean drab clothes and rain boots every day. The leaves may have wilted, but your style has not. Here are five winter shoes that every woman must have.
It’s cold out there. Very cold. You’ve got your scarf and cap on, maybe a nice overcoat, but your feet are still lacking. Look no further than the Eskimo boot. ShopScarpe lists several options of this classic shoe. Some versions come wrapped in fur, others are straight leather, and still others include various leather straps wrapped around the body and up the shin. Whatever option you choose, Eskimo boots are a sure way to keep your feet cozy in the snow and stylish for all to see. Eskimo boots are the perfect way to combine a classic look with daily comfort.
Clogs are the perfect shoe for dressing down or something a bit more refined. You can pair this timeless shoe with skinny jeans or even a sweater dress. Wear clogs to brunch with your friends, or a night out at a lounge. Clogs are traditionally made with a wooden sole that functions as a clean design feature for dealing with wet ground. Throw in brass studs or some gold embellishments, and you’ve got modern style. Clogs are an iconic shoe in any season, but are the perfect way to keep your feet dry and warm.
Nothing is more classically winter than the Hunter boot. This is the boot that any woman from six to sixty should wear and maintain in her closet season after season. Made from rubber, and easy to slip on and off (even with thick socks), this buy is an essential. Hunter boots keep you dry, whether you’re jumping in puddles, or just headed to work. The boot can be found in a series of bright colors (sunflower yellow, anyone?), and is a cheerful pick-me-up during winter’s gloom along with a warm reminder that spring is only a few months away. Hunter boots pair well with skinny jeans and leggings.
The ankle boot you want is the ankle boot that goes with everything. Dinner with your parents? Check. Meeting with a client? Check. First date at a new bar? Check. The typical ankle boot has a small heel and a leather body to keep you looking great. Black suede is an especially appealing variety. Booties made with a stretching ankle gore allow for an easy slip on and off. Rubber soles allow you to walk in ice, snow, or anything else winter throws at you.
The Riding Boot
There is a reason people continue to wear this boot even if they have never been within a mile of a stable. The riding boot is made from durable leather and can withstand just about anything. Also, its refined elegance is a statement all by itself. Pair riding boots with jeans, a dress, or jodhpurs if you dare.
Those are some nice choices for women’s boots, especially with the trends we’ve seen on the runways. Not to mention, everyone in New York has a pair of Hinter boots. Also, nice pair of Clarks would be nice too.
