The Chelsea boot is said to be invented by Queen Victoria’s bootmaker in 1837. So how does a boot that has been with us for almost 200 years, still be this cool?
No matter how long it has been around, the Chelsea boot is an amazingly versatile, attractive piece of footwear that can be combined with a seemingly endless amount of styles. It’s been seen worn by fashion icons, rock stars, actors and artists.
That’s why the Chelsea boot has been around for almost 200 years, and here are some great ways to style them in 2022.
Jeans and Boots
Like a hot dog and ketchup or sushi and soy sauce - jeans and boots are a pairing that just makes sense. Due to Chelsea boots’ minimal design, they can be matched with skinny, loose, boyfriend and even oversized jeans. Cuff your jeans above the top of the boot for a bit of extra style.
Biker Shorts and Chelsea Boots
Although jeans and boots are a given combination - there some things Gen Z have put together that shouldn’t make sense but they do. One of these ‘shouldn’t work’ combos that looks really cute is combining the classic Chelsea boot with biker shorts. Finish this extraordinarily stylish ‘now’ look with an oversized pullover or sweatshirt.
Rocker or Biker Cool
Another timeless look that has the Chelsea boot as its foundation - biker or rock uses black as its palette and leather as the primary material. A simple classic leather jacket, combined with a full body con dress and Chelsea boots will make you look like you are about to take the stage. For a more everyday look swap out the dress for black distressed jeans and a vintage band t-shirt or a mid-drift revealing crop top.
