Which Types of Boots Look Good for Spring?
As the winter changes to fall, our footwear should change with it. Warmer temperatures give fashionistas the opportunity to wear long leather thigh-highs, ankle cuts, and combat boots.
These exciting new additions to your outfits can bring a lot of personality to your appearance, but what boot should you choose? This boot round-up presents the best styles for any budget.
Maison Margiela Tabi Boots
The iconic Maison Martin Margiela boots are real showstoppers because they look unlike the traditional ankle-high heeled shoe. From the side, the construction and stitching are apparent. Made in Italy from quality leather, the cylindrical stacked heel is a signature in the industry, but wait until you see the front! The toes are split, similar to Japanese tabi socks, which is where Maison Margiela designers drew inspiration from. Buy them in white, brown, black, or grey.
Martens 1460 Felix Lace Up Boots
It’s difficult to keep yourself away from Dr. Martens. They’re always stylish, well made, and look great with casual outfits like jeans and a t-shirt. Lace-up boots don’t have to be difficult to pair with a professional outfit either, as long as they’re white, black, or red. In the 1460 Felix Lace version, Dr. Marten brings back its unisex 8-eye style that features a high-shine and premium feel. If you’re not fond of combat boots, Dr. Martens may change your mind.
Christian Louboutin Cavalika 85 Suede Knee-High Boots
No matter what Christian Louboutin produces, it’s quality. Knee-high boots are a must during the spring season because rainstorms are common. You may find yourself splashing through puddles, but with a suede boot, you don’t need to worry about permanent damage from mud as long as you protect and wash them. The Cavalika’s block heel makes it less likely you’ll slip, and that signature red sole adds sophistication to your cold-weather looks.
By Far Lange Square Toe Kitten Heel Leather Bootie
The block heel isn’t a necessity in the spring. To add a little “sexy” in your step, choose a square toe kitten heel leather bootie that adds a modern style with the elegance that leather always provides. By Fars signature is the blunted, square toe that cuts off your foot and makes it look more petit. Kitty heels look great with straight-legged pants or jeans but avoid tucking them into leggings or yoga pants. Doing this will make you look shorter.
Everlane The Glove Boot
The glove boot by Everlane markets itself as the most flattering boot ever made because it perfectly fits around your foot without giving gritty details. However, glove boots, in general, are lovely and often retain a lot of moisture. You can find glove boots in varying heel lengths and types, but block heels are perfect for fall weather. They’re easy to fit into, which makes them the optimal choice for busy days and missed breakfasts.
Dolce Vita Solei Boots White Embossed Leather (Cowboy Boots)
Cowboy boots have gone from a western staple to typical spring and fall wear. The western-inspired Solei boot goes mid-way up your thigh to make its wearer look taller, but it’s beautiful design makes these shoes unique. Cowboy boots are typically high-heeled and made of leather, making them an asset while walking in the rain. For fashionistas who want something warm and versatile, the cowboy boot is the right choice.
Vince Camuto Abrinna Bootie
The Abrinna bootie is an exposed ankle boot that can be worn as the weather warms up or if you’re brave in mild temperatures. The Abrinna bootie specifically comes in multiple colors, including a snakeskin variety that will look great with black pants or a skirt. Ankle exposed boots are usually low healed and have a sleek zipper on the back for easier access. To keep your toes especially warm, find these boots in suede or leather.
Blundstone Vegan Range
You can look trendy this spring whilst staying animal cruelty free, thanks to Blundstone who are offering their vegan range of boots in both black and brown. These have gone down well with the vegan community due to the lack of fashionable options available when it comes to vegan footwear. You don’t have to sacrifice looks just because of materials, as more companies start to adapt to the changing times. The vegan #2116 belongs in the classic Blundstone series and is a great looking versatile ankle boot which is also waterproof!
