There’s a certain style of footwear making it’s way across the pavement this winter. Brace yourself ladies BIG BOOT ENERGY IS HERE!! And we are “walking tall” into the season. It’s time to “Pump up the volume” and pull out your big, big boots, because being a maximalist is to be embraced. Chunky is in, and here to stay for a while as the idea of a high stiletto has been trumped by the notion of a comfortable platform boot instantly delivering a lift and add an edge!
The trend isn’t limited just to utility boots and high riders, we’re seeing iterations of wander-sized gum boots snow boots and big soled just about everything! It’s a complete departure from a slim refined shoe, the bigger, the bulkier the better. Let’s jump back to high riders for a moment though, travelling the full length of the lower leg, the gusset is wide, and you literally just pull it on! It’s a beautiful statement under dresses, over jeans or fully exposed when teamed up with a mini. The heel is solid and stable allow you to scale a cobble street without so much as a wobble! We’re also seeing boots of epic proportions worn in the athleisure category, with track pants and sweats with oversized puffer coats, it’s seemingly excessive, yet it just works!
When creating an outfit, begin with the big boot and build your look around its foundation, the whole look will be anchored by the heaviness of your footwear. You’ll be perfectly grounded and go BOLD, don’t hesitate to grunge out a feminine flowing dress or a baby doll and rockstar your way through the depths of winter, trudging around in your big boots.
- Style your big boots with:
- • Absolutely everything in your wardrobe.
- • Little cutesy dresses and with romantic long dresses.
- • A puffer and chunky knitwear.
- • Chic suiting for work.
