Beware ladies– winter weather is here, bringing its usual, hard-hitting rage onto our beloved winter fashions. With the numbing wind, ice and frost, the sidewalks become a warzone as we struggle to strut elegantly through the slush and muck. Our mission: protect our beautiful garb in these harsh conditions. But this can be a taxing battle– a fight between practicality and fashion. Nevertheless, our instinct for glamour must prevail. Weather does not have to stop a fashion-wise woman from rocking her favorite trends.
Here are some ways to keep your garbs looking fresh and fabulous through the winter.
From hailstorms to salty sidewalks, your winter wear is constantly at risk! The ideal solution is to wear water-proof rain boots, which can be worn outdoors and then switched for heels when you arrive at your location. Unfortunately, this never fully satisfies our urge to look stylish wherever we go. So, if you can’t bear to part with your latest pair of Micheal Kors knee-high boots, have no fear! There are ways to wear your winter luxuries outdoors while protecting its material and shape.
The first rule of boot care is to avoid puddles at all costs. Suede boots are particularly vulnerable due to its raised finish, which absorb liquids easily. When liquids seep into suede, they cause it to discolor and loose shape. So, you must stay wary of your surroundings– don’t let those charming display windows steal your focus as you walk along!
You are also at risk of ruining your boots when stepping off curbs. There are often muddy street puddles awaiting you, ready to splash over your precious boots. What we really need is a revival of the good ol’ days when men covered puddles for us with their jackets… In today’s world, we are lucky if our man at least warns us about the puddle ahead! So, ladies, please watch out.
