I’ve partnered up with Skechers to show off the versatility of their Laramie boot. As the weather cools down, durable footwear becomes a MUST when consideration of keeping your feet warm & dry comes to mind. There’s nothing worse than the misery of cold feet. However, many boots can’t live up to the functionality and aesthetic status us women need – you either get a pair that’s comfortable but ugly or drop-dead chic yet do absolutely nothing for you.
Now boots like these are not meant to be worn to a formal event but that doesn’t mean you have to resort to them for cold stricken situations only. As the typical combat boot we all love and adore, the Laramie encompasses that style but keep your feet warmer than the average combat.
Look 1: Plaid Dressing
This look takes the best aspects of fall – when the weather is just changing and is still warm enough to sport a dress – and makes them approachable for an everyday outfit. The Laramie takes the style of the combat boot and when paired with the red plaid flannel & scarf, the dress itself takes a whole new perspective. Personally, I feel coziest in oversized tops and big scarves. Matching these favorites with a not-so-typical dress choice makes it all the more easy going.
Look 2: Blue Collar
With high necks come multiple variations of cardigan and coat layering, which also means the art of keeping warm is of the essence. This weather also allows for the practice of making a durable ankle boot appear more sophisticated. How is this accomplished? When paired with structured & longline pieces as well as black jeans, this boot matches a more than casual style while still taking on the wear and tear of a New York minute.
Look 3: Denim Approach
I live for casual days and when I can dress relaxed, it’s all the better. Comfort and chic don’t always go hand in hand, so it’s important to match structure opposite to oversized on top/bottom. These boots work as great substitutes for my everyday flats, completely covering my foot and allowing for a wool sock to peek out – a fall trend many of us like to indulge in with our boots of choice.
