Fashion Boots for Women Over 40, 50, 60 – You Can Never Have Too Many Boots!
(continued from page one)
We all know that money is tight, but you don't want to buy something that's going to make your feet hurt or that's going to hurt your feet long term. So, if you're spending a lot of money, look for investment-grade boots in investment-grade styles that are similar to these:
- Fendi Yorkshire Buckled Suede Knee Boot: Ooh La La, this ridiculously expensive (over $1,000) boot has everything I love: suede to help it mold to your foot, buckles to bring your style up to date, and a thick, rubber heel to help your balance when stepping onto escalators.
- Stuart Weitzman Toujours Boot: This sleek boot has an incredibly sexy EuroLook that will never go out of style.
- Miss Mooz Shannon Boot: Take the trendiness of Victorian style, add some height, and camouflage the heel, so that you'll look naturally taller... beautiful genius.
- Uggs Fabrice Boot: I usually don't like Uggs on older women, but this style would be fabulous with skinny jeans or jeggings... or a skirt and some tights... or a pair of jeans... or a boring travel dress... or...
In reality, older women (like you and me) look better when avoiding trendy extremes. We look better embracing subtle details like the 1970s-retro heel on this Diane von Furstenberg Suede Chunky Heel Knee Boot from several years ago. I like this type of thick, stubby heel for both boots and shoes. And, this boot is great for two important reasons:
- The heel is solid and stable.
- The suede will stretch to fit swollen feet.
Real women who want good solid boots should check into styles like these - or something similar - for reasonably priced boots:
- Nine West Tiptop Boot: This has no heel, but it has beautiful EuroStyling that will work with skirts and jeans.
- 7 for All Mankind Floriane Bootie: If you can wear this, get it. It's a reasonable price for a boot that will take you from breakfast through dancing to the blues at some old club.
How to Build a Boot Wardrobe
If you are just starting up your boot wardrobe, get a pair of versatile knee-high black boots and a pair of knee-high beige boots. Both should have solid, stacked heels and insoles with great cushioning. Buy these basic boots in the best quality you can afford; you will be wearing them for ten years or more. (If you wear pants or jeans most of the time, you’ll only need one pair of knee-high boots in black.)
Next, get knee-high or ankle-high flat boots to replace those ugly Nike-style white sneakers or loafers or flip-flops that you always wear. After you have some basic boot styles in your closet, copy the well-dressed Europeans and look for amazing boots in colors you love.
You would have been astounded by how many striking, elegant Parisian women were wearing all-black winter clothing with bright red, mustard yellow, or cobalt boots. So, go ahead and have a little fun this year.
