Each year brings new styles, and each season brings a new opportunity to reinvent your wardrobe. During the winter, however, staying in-style can be especially challenging as you’re searching for footwear that isn’t just fashion-forward, but is also warm and sturdy. Fortunately, 2019 has brought some hot styles that can do it all and keep you looking chic during the coldest season of the year. Here are some of the best winter shoe fashion trends to shop for in 2019.
Knee-high boots are stepping back into the limelight in 2019. With a 70s-style silhouette, a structured pair of knee-high boots provides a retro style to any outfit. This versatile style can be paired with a midi skirt or a classic pair of skinny jeans for an effortlessly chic look.
Lug-soled shoes add an edgy element to any outfit. In addition to being stylish, these boots are also super practical, as their thick sole helps you stand up against the slippery snow and sludge that winter brings.
Shearling accents are delightfully cozy during the winter months. Such accents can be added to the trim of many different shoes—from over-the-knee boots to ankle booties—to give your favorite styles a luxe appearance. As a bonus, shearling accents also add an extra element warmth to help you stay toasty as the temperature continues to drop.
While knee-high boots are giving ankle booties a run for their money this winter, ankle booties remain an essential shoe style to own in 2019. These flattering and versatile shoes complement any outfit perfectly—whether you’re sporting a delicate dress or a structured jumpsuit.
Animal-printed footwear with patterns such as zebra, leopard, and python print are all in vogue in 2019. In addition to such fierce patterns, additional attention-grabbing prints such as checks and florals will also be sported by many fashionistas this winter.
