How to wear Chelsea boots
These military-inspired boots are a must-have for girls who march to their own tune. Here we arm you with all you need to wear them in style and comfort.
Chelsea boots are easy—they go with everything! A symbol of elegance and sophistication (they were worn by Her Majesty the Queen Victoria), they embody the pomp and circumstance of the Victorian era. A timeless, cult piece that is now perfectly at home in a woman’s closet, the Chelsea boot still retains its masculine traits of comfort and practicality.
But enough about history! This is how we wear them now:
+ Classic black Chelsea boots with black skinny jeans, an Aran sweater and a dandy coat for an oh-so-British look.
+ Faux suede Chelsea boots with pulled-up hiking socks, raw skinny jeans, a jacquard knit sweater and a puffer jacket with faux fur hood for a polar look.
+ Leopard print Chelsea boots with ankle grazer jeans, a deep emerald green sweater and a men’s camel coat for an animal look.
+ Wedge heel Chelsea boots with faux leather leggings or slim-fit chinos with slightly rolled-up ankles, a sportswear sweater and a Barbour or K-Way style jacket for a hunting and fishing look.
+ Aged leather-look brown Chelsea boots with khaki ankle socks peeping over the top, a black sweater dress and a red and black shirt knotted at the waist for a springtime lumberjack look.
+ Black high-shine Chelsea boots with dark skinny jeans and an oversized military coat for an army look.
+ Black Chelsea boots with a side-slit midi skirt, loose-fit cashmere turtleneck sweater, boho hat and large tote bag for a boho-chic look.
Whether you're an urbanite or a country dweller, these boots will give you the laid-back look of a clued-up gal who knows exactly where she’s going. To Chelsea!
