There are quite a few outlets that are having winter sales at the moment and this means one thing- it is time to cash in on some great deals and stock up on stuff to keep you warm and fuzzy. However winter shopping is not all about following trends or getting the cheapest buy, when it comes to winter wear pieces like boots and jackets I personally believe in investing in staple and timeless designs. Purchasing staple pieces really adds to your wardrobe as these can be mixed and matched and they will never go out of style.
Best Bets For A Chic Winter Boot
For a classic winter boot, the key is to look for something that marries fashion and functionality. You want something that is going to keep your feet warm and dry without compromising on the style factor.
The other consideration is whether or not you want to fork out a little bit more for a leather pair; these tend to be more durable and longer lasting. This Boheme Boot by Siren is $119 with free delivery at Myer (see left).
It is available in full black leather and features a solid block heel.
If black isn’t your thing, there is also this RMK Lucetta boot (see right) in taupe or black which is going at $127.46 with free delivery, also from Myer.
Faux Leather But Equally Fab!
If price is your top priority or if you have ethical issues with purchasing leather, there are some fantastic faux leather and synthetic boots that are equally stylish and a fraction of the cost.
This pair of Therapy Dakota Smooth boots are $41.96 not including shipping at The Iconic. The outer of the shoe is finished with a leather look and a decorative buckle.
The Iconic also offers free shipping for orders above $50, so have a look at the post for how you can add on some items to hit the $50 threshold. The site is currently hosting a 50% off sale so there are bound to be some good bargain finds
The next fab faux option is this pair of Therapy Montague boots from FSW Shoe Warehouse, which are just $29.90 delivered. This pair is far more elegant than the other options, but the thinner heel also means they are a less sturdy option. FSW Shoe Warehouse has these in black and taupe.
Just Jumpers & Jackets
The winter essential sale going on at Bonds is the place to be at the moment- for all your winter wear needs at least. Bonds are offering hoodies, shrugs, jumpers and jackets at 40% off, with free delivery to boot (also see here for more Bonds-bargains during this sale).
Want at jacket that will up the ante? I would go for this Mossee Belted Boucle jacket now going at $119 with free shipping at The Iconic (down from $129 when it was first posted)
All in all, it might be a little cold but it’s a great time to be a shopper and to stock up on some sleek boots and jackets.
