This short guide will walk through the latest fashion trends we are expecting to see when the weather starts to cool off.
Chelsea Boots Everywhere
Chelsea boots are a huge fashion trend this year. Although Chelsea boots haven’t ever really been out of fashion, their popularity in the ’10s did wane slightly after being extremely popular in the late ‘90s and ‘00s. But trends recently have been borrowing heavily from both those decades and the Chelsea boot has come back with vengeance. Its minimal design and utilitarian look lends itself to a multitude of styles and looks.
Timbs or Timberlands
Again riding the wave of 90s throwback fashions - ubiquitous yellow Timbs or Timberlands boots have recently experienced a resurgence. Honestly, styling these rugged, high-quality boots are a piece of cake, since they are worn exactly as they were back in the 90s. Combine them with oversized jeans, denim overalls and bold graphic tees.
Desert or Chukka Boots
Another type of boot that has been in fashion more than out of fashion in the past few decades, Chukka boots or their variant desert boots are in vogue once again. They’re a great casual boot that can be combined both with jeans, and trousers. Not only do they look great, they’re also super comfortable.
Never out of fashion - Doc Martens
Since the British Mods adopted Doc Martens as their go-to footwear in the 60’s these high cut boots have never been out of fashion. Hippies wore them in 70s with custom painted flowers, in the 80s both hair-metal fans and punks adopted them as their fav footwear, in the 90s grunge fans gaffer taped and scuffed them beyond recognition. In the 00’s and ‘10s people wore them religiously but casually with skinny jeans and straight-legged trousers.
