Hi guys and welcome to another week of blogging here at Falling for Fashion! This week’s blog post will be all about finding the perfect boot for you. In this post I will be introducing you guys to some of my favourite boots we have been seeing this season. Boots and booties are the perfect shoe for those who live in a city with unpredictable weather, just like here in Vancouver. Let’s say you and your girl friends decide to do a day of shopping and finish that off with a classy dinner at a delicious restaurant. After spending hours picking out an outfit and getting ready, you’re about to head out the door when you think to yourself “what shoes am I supposed to wear?” As you stare at your shoe options, you begin to consider the weather conditions outside so you look at your weather app. The app calls for rain during the day and sun in the evening. What shoes are you supposed to wear? Sneakers are perfect for a day of shopping but they don’t look cute with your outfit, whereas your favourite Steve Madden heels look amazing with your outfit but aren’t ideal for a long day of shopping. So finally, you reach for your favourite pair of boots and you head out the door.
When picking out the ultimate boot for you, there are a couple things to consider:
- Climate you live in
If you are looking for an all around dependable and stylish boot, I recommend any of the boots from Dr. Martens. Docs come in a variety of styles and colours, and they have been super popular and trendy this fall season. The three most worn Docs of the season have been the Jadon Smooth High Top Platforms, the 2976 Polished Smooth Platform Chelsea Boot, and lastly the 8053 Leather Platform Casual Shoe. These specifically add a fun twist to the normal Dr. Marten boot as they all have platform soles. As a shorter girl myself, I love wearing shoes with a chunkier sole as they can give off the effect of longer legs, as well as give you an extra inch or two of height. Although Dr. Marten’s can be on the pricier side, their shoes are known to be very durable, sturdy and reliable.
Next up are these adorable boots from Zara. Over the past few months, I have been seeing some of my favourite Instagram influencers and Youtubers style these affordable and trendy boots. The Low Heel High Shaft Treaded Sole Boots from Zara have been an essential in many closets over the past few months. Zara’s affordable reputation attracts consumers from all over the world. These boots are a super affordable price for good quality boots. There are so many different ways you can style these. From skirts and shorts in the fall to jeans and pants as we transition into winter, these boots work perfectly with any outfit.
My last boot recommendation has to be the Prada’s Monolith brushed leather booties. These boots are a fancier designer version of the Dr. Marten 2976 Polished Smooth Platform Chelsea Boot that I talked about above. Because these boots are made from a high end designer brand, they are quite pricey. If you are looking for the ultimate chunky bootie and you are willing to splurge and treat yourself, this is the shoe for you!
