Yesterday I got a package from Top of the Boot in the mail. I am so excited to present you the boot toppers (photo above) they sent me. And I am so happy that they gave me a promotion code for free shipping for my lovely readers: TOTB2.  It will be good until February 28, 2014.

Have you ever heard about boot toppers? I have to say, I never saw or heard of boot toppers before, despite I live in Alaska for more than 12 years!  I wish I had come across boot toppers and Top of the Boot much earlier!

Boot toppers are socks with a nice lining and faux fur top. They work with ankle to knee-high boots. Boot toppers are easy to put on, and dress up your boots giving them an awesome, expensive looking designer look. Top of the Boot even has accessories that you can add on your boot toppers!

How to wear boot toppers

Putting boot toppers on is easy as 1-2-3. Put on the socks, then the boots, fold the faux fur over the boot top, and go. It took me less than a minute to put them in place (see photos below), and adding on accessories.

Care

Don’t worry about the boot toppers getting dirty. They are hand-washable, but you also can bring them to the dry cleaners if you like.

Boot toppers are a must-have when you live in cold climate

Boot toppers are a must-have when you want to add more options to your boot selection without actually forking over the money for a couple of new pairs of boots. Do the math yourself. Assumed you have a pair of ankle boots, a pair of calf-length boots, and a pair of knee-high boots. Just one pair of boot toppers will double your boot options. You seemingly have six pair of boots. If you buy two pairs of boot toppers or one pair of boot toppers plus one pair of accessories, you will have already nine different options. Thus, investing in boot toppers will not only help not to get cabin fever, save money on boots, but also brings a fun factor to your winter wardrobe.

In cold climate, boot toppers not only dress up your boots, and add variety to your style, but also add extra insulation to your feet. At the top of your boots, they hinder that cold air enters. In case you wear them with booties, boot toppers avoid that snow can enter when you step out of your car after a snow storm in an non-plowed parking lot. Since they elongate the “top” of your boots, you also get some extra insulation over a larger part of your leg. This extended insulation is definitively an advantage on a double digits below zero day when waiting for the bus, idling the car until you can plug in a gear, etc.

Style-wise, boot toppers are for boots what the icing is for cakes. Boot toppers give you the finishing touch for your outfit. They can lengthen the boot to end at a more flattering point. They can balance your outfit. Boot topper can make a casual outfit look polished or cute. They take a classic, corporate workplace outfit from uniform-like to notable (see photo above). They can help you to stand out of the crowd. They add so many additional options to your style. They are awesome.

Top of the Boot’s collection

Top of the Boot’s toppers are faux fur, and come in nine different animal prints, and three different bright colors for those who want to make an even stronger fashion statement. You can increase the variety of options even more with various accessories like matching pom poms or charm chains for your boot toppers. I will show how to add variety to the boot toppers on a post next week.
