I saw your post about Chelsea boots just at the time I was looking for a shoe that could be worn in the winter that doesn't have much of a heel and that wasn't a tall boot (sometimes I just need a break!). I'm still looking for the right pair for me, hoping to go with a fairly traditional style, but could really use some outfit inspiration. I would typically wear them with pants and outside of work, running errands, going out with friends, etc. Any chance you're working on a post that showcases outfit ideas for Chelsea boots?
A Chelsea boot is a great addition to a wardrobe for its versatility and amazing combination of trendiness yet classic style. They look modern, but will still be wearable for years to come. If you purchase quality and take good care of them (take them to the cobbler to be reheeled and resoled as necessary, have a day between wearings so they don’t get stretched out or stinky, polish and protect the leather), this is the kind of shoe you can have in your wardrobe for over a decade. A few ideas on how to wear them outside of the workplace.
Chelsea boots are low and roomy, making them perfect shoes for days when you’ll be on your feet. I created this look for the sight-seer, spending the day at museums and historic homes. A shift dress is comfortable but looks nice if you enter an historic place of worship or decide to dine somewhere nicer. Fleece tights and a pashmina or scarf will keep you warm while maintaining style. The Chelsea boots give a modern downtown feel to the look, continue it with an on-trend crossbody bag.
