One of my favorite things about fashion week is all of the street style, particularly that of the models. These girls have to jet from one show to the other in a matter of minutes and yet they still manage to look totally put together and chic. Since some sort of blustery weather has become a signature part of New York Fashion Week — take last season’s blizzard for example — my style radar is turned up extra high to see how these stylish runway strutters handle not-so-footwear-friendly weather. While I was eating the pavement wearing heels in 5 inches of snow, all last season I saw girls pairing their stylish urban looks — chunky sweaters, oversize leather jackets, studded bags, and skinny jeans — with weatherproof boots.
Upon seeing SOREL’s Slimback Riding Glow boots, I knew they would be just the right addition to the laidback chic model-inspired look I’ve been perfecting over the past couple of months. Pairing my new weatherproof ankle boots with black jeans, a cozy striped sweater, and leather motorcycle jacket has me ready for whatever Mother Nature decides to bring while still feeling fashion-forward. Bring on the puddle stomping because my days of feeling icky in my snow and rain gear are officially over. -Sonia Evers
