Many fashion bloggers welcomed the new year in style in January! The subzero temperatures did not stop them from dressing up — certainly not from wearing hot heels! A number of these style bloggers were able to put together noteworthy looks even with dark and dull colors, which are often associated with winter.
Without further ado, here are our top shoe bloggers for the first month of 2015! Feel free to get some ideas and inspiration from their clever fashion skills.
1. Megan Knight from Canada
A black and white combination is never drab, especially if you wear pieces like those sported by Megan Knight of The Lovely Knight last month. Dress up a white top and a pair of black pants with a fab black coat and over-the-knee leather boots for a stylish winter look!
2. Anouska Proetta Brandon from Ireland
Not sure how to style an all-black outfit? Take a cue from Anouska Proetta Brandon. She balanced the plain dark color of her shirt and pants with a luxurious fur coat and a pair of leopard-print boots. The contrasting details brought life and sophistication to her entire look.
3. Stephanie Ka from Germany
Brave the cold season and channel effortless cool without wearing boots. Stephanie Ka of Véjà Du opted for tough-chic caged sandals with buckles and studs to finish her street-chic ensemble, which included a loose white top, ripped jeans, a leather jacket, and a beanie. The result was amazing!
4. Helena Cueva from Spain
Go for a modern look this season by wearing monochromatic clothes. Helena Cueva of Mi Aventura con la moda wore a grid-patterned gray sweater with trendy black shorts. A pair of bright-colored heels made her edgy cold-weather outfit more exciting.
5. Anya Robie from the United States
How about a vintage look this season? If it’s your style or if you’d like to experiment, you may take inspiration from blogger Anya Robie of AnnRobieFashion. Wear black pants with a white sweater, and layer with an embroidered scarf and a brown jacket. Style with oversized sunglasses and a pair of brown ankle boots for a stronger retro vibe.
6. Priscila Diniz from Brazil
Priscila Diniz of Look at Me BR put together a very chic vintage ensemble, including a bright orange sweater and a pair of gray culottes. Her statement accessories — a brown leather jacket and a brown sun visor — enhanced her retro-glam look! Priscila opted for an equally interesting pair of shoes. Her unique and edgy sandals feature green textured panels, brown and white trims, buckled ankle straps, and stacked heels. This is a very refreshing look from head to toe!
7. Diana Enciu and Alina Tanasa from Romania
This winter, boots usually do the talking. Diana Enciu and Alina Tanasa of Absolutely Fabulous used gorgeous ankle boots to amp up their simple but elegant brown coats. Check them out below, and tell us which pair you prefer.
8. The Pearl Oyster from the United States
Channel your inner bohemian like this chic blogger of The Pearl Oyster. Layer a loose sweater over a mini dress, and finish the look not with boots but with a pair of gladiator sandals! You might also want to style the outfit with round glasses and a sling bag to finish off a stylish boho look!
9. Ruta from Lithuania
Break the fashion rule, and mix spring and winter fashion trends like Ruta of ADM Amoureuse de Mode. Wear your favorite floral top with fitted jeans, a leather jacket, and a scarf. For a chic contrast against the dark-colored outfit, opt for bright-colored boots!
10. Elen Ellis from Italy
Elen Ellis of Elen and the City sported a monochrome jumpsuit and jazzed it up with statement black heels and pink sunnies. The pop of color was funky, but those bold heels added some edge to the overall getup.
