Boots: models and trends in 2022. Boots are a type of shoe that covers the foot in its entirety, the ankle and depending on the model, the calf or part of it.
This type of footwear has a relatively ancient origin. Since the first records occurred in Mesopotamia, where men and women used them. It became a shoe exclusively for men over time.
In the 19th century, the first women’s boot garments emerged, differing in a very marked way from the male models. They were popularised by Queen Victoria, who gave life to the Balmoral Boot model, named after the people of Scotland.
With time, this type of shoe has evolved, and today it is part of daily clothing, according to each person’s tastes, gaining a special force of presence today. Therefore, let us know the existing models and the trends for 2022.
Dr Marten´s boots
They receive this name from the creative brand of this model, with all similar models going by the same name.
They are characterised by being military-style, with laces and cover up to above the ankle.
Also known as fur boots or fleece boots, they are lined with a soft material, like fur, that provides warmth.
They have a rubber sole and a low square heel, with elastic details on the sides.
These boots offer a lot of comfort, and due to their material, they´re ideal for humid climates and rainy days.
They can also be classified as safari boots.
Their appearance is more like a shoe.
They have a crepe sole and laces at the top.
It is an ankle boot, characterised by its robust platform and wide heel, with lace closure.
They also correspond to a type of ankle boot, whose height is up to the ankle.
Wedge boots have a wide platform and are closed.
They are still in force and are found in different styles, colours and details.
Its main attraction is the buckles or straps that accompany it at the top.
They are medium cut and covers above the ankle, and they are manufactured in different types of materials and colours.
Thigh High Boots
Also known as musketeer boots, they are the type of long boots that reach above the knees, up to the thighs. And have a heel and an elastic cane that makes them fit the leg.
Cuissard/Over the knee boots
They are similar to the previous model but less high and may have a heel or even flat.
Also called Katiuskas, they are the popular wellies.
Which today are also used for regular clothing without the need to use them for humid climates.
Inspired by the military model, they adopt a grunge style with a broad, marked sole, laces, and a loaded style.
Today it is one of the most worn and sought after models because it is very fashionable.
And we find it in various materials such as a patent. In addition, another characteristic is the comfort it offers and the ability to combine them.
Even with slightly more formal clothing.
It is a type of boot, but short, that only covers the foot and part of the ankle.
The heel is not very high, so it will not add height to the body. And you can wear it in your daily look since you.
Tips for wearing boots
Wearing boots also implies adhering to a few small rules. So that when you wear them, you have a perfect image and can take advantage of the model you use.
For that, we will tell you the most common mistakes and what you should try when wearing boots.
Wear winter boots or fabrics such as velvet or leather and patent with summer clothing and hot weather.
Wear high boots (Thigh High) and narrow outside the pants if you have wide thighs.
Combine high boots with blouses or long shirts.
Wide boots and narrow calves will show that they are the wrong size.
If this is your case, try to wear high boots below the knee. Since wearing them at mid-calf will hide less the leg thickness, so you should also avoid wearing ankle boots.
Here, on the contrary, we recommend ankle boots and black stockings.
Because the colour will hide and give a visual effect of thinness in that area.
The idea is to divert attention from the ankles.
Tall and thin
This type of figure is suitable for all kinds of boots.
Make sure that the tip is narrow to give visual harmony in conjunction with the silhouette.
To visually lengthen the figure, we recommend the use of high boots.
And in the case of using shorter ones, they should be with stockings or leggings of the same colour.
Here the objective is to slim the legs visually.
So, you can wear high boots with a wide mouth, medium, flat or wide-heeled boots.
The legs of this build are privileged because various types of boots fit well.
However, the ones that favour the most are the high ones, above the knees. And in the case of wearing pants, stockings, or leggings, choose a different colour than the boots.
The goal, in this case, is to divert attention from the hips.
So, the ideal type of boot is those that reach below the knee and have a medium heel.
Avoid narrow boots or those loaded with material that provides volume to thighs and hips.
The higher the boot, the shorter the dress should be.
For work use, you must wear them with pants.
Wear boots according to the year’s season, avoiding wearing winter boots in summer.
