The Big Apple’s style of dressing has always been effortlessly chic, whether it be in the refined and polished sense to the maximalist grunge. NYC girls step out of their apartments with such sartorial confidence that you’d probably guess that they’re a New Yorker just by looking at their clothes.
If there’s one essential trick that these stylish gals always do, it’s completing their look with a pair of chunky boots. Not only are they comfier than your usual heels but they’re also versatile enough to be incorporated into any outfit.
See how they’ve been wearing it below!
Opt for platform boots with a patent finish, as it will (literally) elevate a look without sacrificing comfort. Pair it with an oversized leather jacket and a turtleneck dress for an easy cool outfit that gets you out the door in seconds. For a finishing touch, incorporate some high-ankle tan socks!
Inspired by Victorian dressing with a twist, wear a dainty high neckline dress with a pair of grungy combat boots. But to avoid looking flat, opt for a bright mini bag for a pop of color.
It’s easy to see why not everyone is on board with flared jeans. The wide hemlines can make you look stumpy, especially if you lack in the height department. However, a pair of burgundy, high-heeled platform boots will do just the trick to help you look more statuesque.
Taking a page from frequent menswear dressers like Alexa Chung and Yoon Ahn of Ambush, pick out your trusty pair of Chelsea boots and wear them with a ribbed long sleeved top and a leather midi skirt for a Fall-ready outfit.
When the weather’s just too confusing to figure out the perfect get-up, go for frayed denim shorts and bundle up in a suede trench coat. The high ankle chunky boots come in to further embellish the minimal outfit.
