Winter footwear

When the winter chill bites at your toes, no matter how nattily you are dressed, it eats away at your confidence and comfort.  If you are presuming the only way to keep warm is pulling on woollen socks - or those toed socks that aunts from Ludhiana to Lingarajpuram trust - and ditching fashionable ensembles, you have got it wrong. Check this list to know which hot pair of winter footwear you have been giving a miss.


No introductions needed for the oomph factor of these ones. A good pair worn well will no doubt make you stand out, but remember like all else you can go wrong with them too. Boots have to go over fitted bottoms. If you are heavier around the calf, see the boots don’t reach half-way around it. Try ankle length ones or those that  go way beyond the calf.


These have never been the same since the vertiginous kinds took over. Closed at the toe, they can be pulled over sheer stockings, all of which means you needn't face the chilly air without some protection against it.


If you have envied the men in their secure Oxfords, who says you can’t have them too. For a truly gender-bending style statement, wear these to skip looking frumpy in layers of clothing and those age-old sneakers.


They go best when you have picked the shalwar kameez or any other ethnic wear for the day. Pick from the brightly embroidered ones to those that rock the traditional leather look. 

Heeled Loafers

Comfy with just the right hint of a fashionista, the heeled loafers are good for work wear and can be quickly transitioned to channel a very 1930s look.
