Fashion Boots for Women Over 40, 50, 60 – You Can Never Have Too Many Boots!
by Tina Boomerina (Christina Gregoire)
You can never have too many boots! There are so many cute, winter-friendly styles out there that are totally indispensable for older women. So, put on your boots and look hot, not dowdy, in 2013/2014.
No matter who you are or what your age, if you are a woman, you need as many pairs of boots as you can get. Well, within reason. Why? Boots are a hot look, but more importantly, boots are more stable, more convenient, and more practical than most shoes. And, fashionable boots are cute.
If you are over 40 (or 50 or 60) and you wear high heels, you can use your footwear to fool your public into thinking you are:
- Taller than you really are.
- Skinner than you really are.
- Sexier than hell.
However, if you are a Baby Boomer chick (or older), you may not have the balance you once had in your disco days. Well, I have found that boots are more stable than pumps or high-heeled sandals, because properly fitted boots will hold your ankle in place, thus keeping your heel under your foot's center of gravity. And, that’s a good thing, even if you aren’t out dancing the Funky Chicken or whatever crazy things you used to do when you were young and single.
Stable footwear is important for everyday stuff, like going up and down stairs... like walking to the car... like shopping at the market. Sure, you can get stability with Nike-like shoes. But, Nikes will make you look frumpy, not elegant.
Boots Are Convenient and Practical
I don’t like to wear jeans because I got burnt out on them after wearing denim non-stop during my hippie days. Also, I find pants hard to fit and uncomfortable. So, after wearing skirts and dresses for years, I know the advantages of knee-high boots over regular shoes... especially if you have more important things to do than to obsess over fashion and beauty. In my opinion, boots are indispensable because:
- You don’t have to waste time finding the right color tights or hosiery to coordinate with your shoes or hemline.
- You don’t have to shave or wax your legs as often because your boots cover your legs.
- It is easier to find two boots that match, when your closet is a disaster, than to find two shoes that match, because boots are bigger and easier to spot.
- Boots keep your legs warm when it’s cold and raining or snowing.
Boots look fabulous with pants. It’s so easy to upgrade your favorite jeans (or slacks) with some cute knee-high boots, a huge Parisian-style purse, and a big pair of sunglasses. Also, good boots will save you money in the long run, because you can wear your same old, boring jeans without looking old and dowdy yourself. And, that’s because boots are a young, hip look.
If you hate jeans because they don’t have enough stretch, you can wear leggings (or jean jeggings) tucked into your knee boots (or ankle boots) for a cute alternative to that ugly, suburban uniform of jogging suit and white tennis shoes. Why look like an old lady who shops at the local mall when you can look like a hip celebrity by shopping the entire world of boots on the internet?
Hey, looking hot doesn’t take much money. It just takes a little imagination and the courage to wear what looks good on you.
What Boots Are Hot for Fall/Winter 2013/2014?
