Christmas is not far away. Do you have a clue of what gift to buy her this holiday? If not, you are in luck. Every female needs a good, stylish boot for the cold weather months. Check out these five trendy boots she’ll love for Christmas.
Over-the-Knee and Thigh-High Boots
This idea is for the hardcore fashionista on your list. If she is always on top of the latest trends and wears clothing with style and confidence, then she will love a pair of over-the-knee or thigh-high boots. This boot style is edgy and sexy, even when worn over skinny jeans. Check out the Catepult for $129.95 by Steve Madden. What I love about this low-heeled boot is that it can be scrunched down to wear as a knee-high boot. For style versatility, go with the boot in Cognac.
In my opinion, knee-high boots are the perfect accent for jeans. Whether they are classic fit or jeggings, a knee-high boot can update their look. For your giftee this holiday, look for a heeled boot in a rich color like cognac or one of the trendy wine hues of the season. A good choice is the Beatrice for $198.00 by Ralph Lauren. This dark brown boot with a leather exterior and suede interior can be worn at the knee or cuffed to be worn just below it showing the suede interior for added interest.
When it comes to boots, lace-up styles tend to be a little funkier and sexier, even for the more athletic styles of boot. This style comes in many heights, from the shortest booties to darn-near crotch-skimming thigh-highs. A fun and flirty Christmas gift for her is the Funtasma Athlete for $43.95 at Shoebuy. This boot features the colorblock trend of the season and can adjust to fit wider calves.
Ankle boots or booties have been the trend for the last few fall seasons. Mainly because they look great with dresses, skirts, pants and suits. This style of boot has now become a fashion staple. A scrunch ankle boot is a safe choice, like the Rampage Shoes Brazil Bootie for $49.00 at Macy’s. This boot comes in three of fall’s trendy colors: red, purple and olive. I recommend as a gift for her the red, as it has more of deep claret color that can still be worn for seasons to come.
Riding boots have become the sleeper trend of the season. Don’t be fooled, this style of boot is classic and is fashionable each fall/winter season. The riding boot looks elegant when worn with napped fabric pants like suede, velvet, velour or corduroy. A very on-trend and timeless riding boot is the Fergie ‘Limit’ Boot for $189.95 at Nordstrom. This boot features the signature buckle detailing of the riding boot with colorblock and texture blocking details mixing leather and suede together. Both the grey and taupe versions look good. However, my pick for her gift is the taupe, as the style details blend more seamlessly in that color.
These five boot styles will make a perfect gift for the stylish lady on your Christmas list. The product mentioned are simply suggestions to be used as a guide when boot shopping for her.
