Embrace Winter Elegance: A Comprehensive Guide to Wearing and Styling High Heels in the Coldest Months

The winter months invite us into a world of frosty landscapes and cozy aesthetics, and while the season presents its own set of challenges, it's also an opportunity for fashionistas to showcase their style prowess. For discerning women of luxury who appreciate the perfect blend of fashion and function, Mavette brings you an exclusive guide to walking the winter season without saying goodbye to the grace and style offered by a classic high heel.

When building out your winter shoe collection, there are a few important things to consider, the main ones being material and practicality. Heels in the winter can be risky—when conditions are slick, we want to choose options that will keep us on our feet in style. Now is the time to reach for a chunky heel that offers more surface area for standing, cold weather-proofed leathers and suedes that you can come back to season after season, and elegant styling tips that will keep your outfits feeling chic, fresh, and, most importantly, seasonally-appropriate. Say goodbye to cold feet and cracked heels, because Mavette's shoes are built to last the winter and help you do the same.


Best Materials and Styles for Winter Heels

#1 Leather and Suede: When it comes to heels in the winter, indulge in the richness of Italian leather heels and suede for their durability and ability to keep you warm during the cold winter months. Mavette's exquisite collection features meticulously crafted footwear that embodies luxury and warmth, offering styles in both supple calfskin and water-resistant suede. If treated with the utmost care, they will be a winter wardrobe staple for years to come. Not sure where to start? Here is a helpful guide to caring for leather and suede shoes.

#2 Low Heel Heights: Achieve stability and comfort during snow season by opting for shoes with a lower heel height. This becomes especially important when navigating icy sidewalks or uneven terrain, ensuring both style and safety. Mavette’s selection of shorter block heels will allow you to proceed with your plans regardless of the weather. With most styles capping at a 2” kitten heel height, you will get the lift that you crave without the struggle of having to negotiate your balance on slippery surfaces.

#3 Heeled Boots: Elevate your winter style with a heeled boot, the epitome of sophistication. Offering warmth, ankle support, and versatility, Mavette's collection seamlessly fuses style and practicality for various winter occasions, and affords you the opportunity to dress up or down depending on your plans.


Outfit Ideas and Styling Tips:

#1 Ankle Boots and a Tailored Coat: Pair flat or heeled ankle boots with a tailored coat and slim-fit trousers for a polished daytime look that effortlessly blends warmth and sophistication. Reach for the Aria heeled ankle boot in whichever color best matches your outerwear selection.

#2 Knee-High Boots and a Sweater Dress: Style knee-high boots with a cozy sweater dress and opaque or fleece-lined tights for a fashionable winter outfit that keeps you cozy in fashion. The black Loreto heeled boot would be a stunning choice for heels in the winter.

#3 Classic Pumps for Glamour: Opt for classic pumps to elevate your evening dress, adding a touch of glamor and sophistication to your winter nights. The Nola or Aurora styles, both offered in a variety of colors and featuring an adjustable ankle strap and stacked heel for stability and comfort, would pair well with any elegant winter outfit.

#4 Heeled Ankle or Knee-High Boots and a Midi Skirt: Combine high heel boots with a sleek midi skirt and a statement blouse for a chic, refined, and versatile ensemble.

#5 Monochromatic Magic: Experiment with monochromatic outfits to create a seamless and elongated silhouette, adding an extra layer of elegance to your cold weather looks.

#6 Day-to-Night Transition: Easily transition from day to night by incorporating statement accessories or a bold lip color, transforming your daytime chic into evening elegance in under five minutes.


Tips to Prevent Slipping in Snowy Conditions

Once your outfit is on and you are out the door, there is no going back. Here are a few of our best tips on navigating the winter terrain.

#1 Add Non-Slip Pads: Enhance traction by adding non-slip pads to the soles of your winter heel.

#2 Rubber Soles: Opt for shoes with a rubber sole, providing better grip on slippery surfaces and ensuring stability.

#3 Chunkier Heels for Support: Choose a chunky heel, offering enhanced stability and support in challenging winter conditions.

#4 Take Small Steps: Minimize the risk of slipping by taking smaller, deliberate steps, especially when navigating snow or icy surfaces, and know when to take it slow.

#5 Check Weather Conditions: Stay informed about the weather to make smart decisions about your footwear, ensuring both style and safety. Know when it’s time to reach for winter shoes rather than a stiletto heel, or when it's simply a good idea to forgo the heel and opt for flats  (or even a snow boot) for one night.

Mastering the art of wearing heels in the winter is a testament to your style and resilience. Mavette's exquisite collection not only embraces the challenges of the winter season, but transforms them into opportunities for elegance and comfort. Choose the right shoes, follow our styling tips, and step into winter with confidence and grace. 

If you do opt for heels in the winter, explore Mavette’s stylish, comfortable, and practical heels to elevate your winter wardrobe to new heights and you are on your way to embracing the season with sophistication.
