The Chelsea Boot

*This post was sponsored by Zappos Never underestimate the power of footwear, especially great boots. I just can’t live without them. Here’s why: Strong statement shoes add the finishing touch to your outfit, and trust me, that doesn’t go unnoticed. Boots add an elevated and seasonal feel to your outfit that, when done right, can pull your entire look together. They’re so multi-functional that you can wear them with denim, chinos or even full suits. You can tuck the pants in for a more rugged look or keep the pants over the boots for a dressier feel. Depending on the vibe of the outfit, there are so many ways to play with styling boots during the fall and winter months. You can get so many looks out of them! I’ve been wearing Steve Madden boots for years. Their lace-up combat boots (in both black and brown) are staples in my wardrobe because they are comfortable and versatile enough to wear with everything.

Break Out Your Boots 

I love wearing boots during the fall and winter — the seasons to have fun with footwear! I love that you can wear boots in so many different ways. Tuck in your denim loosely into a pair of boots and you have a great look for a night out with friends, or throw on a pair of colored chinos with a woven and roll the pants up once to form a fitted cuff and you have a great dressier option.

The stone wash of the boot gives a rustic feel for the fall and pairs nicely with just about any color pant. I also love the narrow, tailored shape of the boot, as many boots appear clunky. Florsheim carries a variety of boots that are tailored to your foot, which believe it or not, are hard …

Rugged Feel

One of my favorite looks this season is centered around henleys. These shirts are perfect for the fall because they can be worn as a layering piece under a jacket or flannel, or they can be worn solo on a crisp day. Remember that henleys should fit closely to your body as its meant to be a form-fitting shirt. I paired this off-white Henley from J-Crew with a grey distressed pair of denim from Ralph Lauren, one of my favorite pairs of jeans to wear in the cooler months. A flannel wrapped around the waist and black boots from Steve Madden were the perfect touch to complete this look. I like to tuck the bottom of my pants into my boots and crinkle the fabric up a bit to give a more laid back and rugged feel. I wear boots all fall and winter long and have this pair also in brown. I definitely recommend buying a pair or two for the season because you can get so many different looks out of them! Lastly, …
