Fall is here once again. As I shop my closet for what to wear and browse online, I can’t help but notice this season’s key trends. Yes, I know. I’m a little bit late.

What better way to pay homage to punk culture than with the lace-up boot. Designers silently gave a nod to Vivienne Westwood as lace-up boots pranced down the catwalk. Whether ankle length or knee high, lace-up boots can add an edge to any ensemble.

Add a touch of pizazz to your personal style by jazzing up a simple outfit. Metallics are the way to go if want to create a bold look.
SQUARE TOE BOOTS
