Lug Sole Booties
Lug-sole boots are without a doubt my favorite shoe trend for winter because they’re functional, warm, and stylish all at once. They cap off a feminine look with edge and help us channel ’90s grunge in a rugged silhouette. Plus, there’s truly a shape — long, tall, or somewhere in between — for every taste. If you’re unfamiliar, the lug sole is made of rubber and has grooves at the bottom for added grip, but they also play up the design of the shoe, oftentimes working to accent or contrast the upper.
In my opinion, they’re the next best thing to wearing sneakers for going out on a walk in cold temperatures. Some famous versions that are recognizable anywhere, include Prada, Ganni, Dolce Vita, Steve Madden, Sam Edelman, and more, so you can shop at every price point and maybe even collect lug-sole boots for your wardrobe at a few different heights. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to wear the look. You can guess that I chose this particular pair of lug sole booties because of the rhinestone embellishments.
You originally saw this look on my post about winter coat trends. You can see that post, HERE. I could hardly wait to start wearing these boots when they got delivered. The first way I styled them was with my wide leg cropped faux leather pants, fair isle sweater layered over my white button up blouse and added my winter white puffy coat. It’s a monochromatic look with a touch of metallic in the fair isle sweater. I picked up on the rhinestone embellished boots in my accessories.
Looks 2 and 3
For a more casual look, I paired the lug sole booties with my Love sweater and distressed jeans. I think booties and jeans are an obvious match. However, I wanted to share how my jeans could be easily switched out to my red dress pants for a work appropriate look. By switching out one or two items, you can easily change the look and feel of an outfit and get more wear out of each piece in your wardrobe.
You might recall a very similar look that I shared with this exact sweatshirt except in black! When I find things that I love, I will often get them in multiple colors. Additionally, it went on sale plus I had a coupon! I am the self appointed coupon, bargain queen!
The rhinestones on the boots are a nice compliment to the rhinestones on the sweatshirt plus you already know that I adore all things embellished! This sweatshirt has many things going for it – rhinestone embellishment, puffy sleeves, super comfy yet looks super stylish! That’s a trifecta in my books. The faux leather joggers are a frequent go to and the lug sole boots pull the look together!
Thinking about transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring…it might be a tad early here in Illinois but wanted to share a spring look option with these boots! These faux leather shorts seemed like a great styling option especially since we had a 50 degree day…although still too cold for me hence the tights. The cable knit sweater and winter white tights and boots create a monochromatic look. These shorts were a recent purchase from a local boutique, Jade. I do love supporting local, women owned businesses! I layered on my vintage (once my mom’s coat) camel faux fur collared coat. I was feeling pretty sassy until I got in my car to go to work. Once I sat down, the shorts were much too short. Full disclosure, I ran back in the house and changed into look 5 1/2. I knew I wouldn’t be comfortable at work. The more I thought about the shorts I knew if I couldn’t sit down comfortably I probably wouldn’t wear them at all so I sadly returned them after having worn them for about 10 minutes. Since I loved this look, I’ll probably look for a different pair of faux leather cream colored shorts that are a tad longer so I can sit comfortably! Tip: I tried them on in the store and felt perfectly comfortable in them; however, I should have tried sitting down!
Look 5 1/2
Nothing like a bathroom selfie…LOL! This is what I changed in to – swapped out the shorts for my plaid pants. I didn’t have much time to change so this is what I grabbed. I have a pair of cream colored corduroys that I wish I would have thought of grabbing in order to keep my monochromatic look. However, that will give me another option for another day!
