I really wondered what this duck boot is when I first heard about it. Did you? Why is it named so? Well it has a great sense behind. The upper section of the shoes are made using water repellant fabric called, duck cloth canvass and bottom has rubber sole. So it’s quite obvious it’s meant for rainy season and is called as the DUCK BOOT.
Way back these shoes were used as hunting shoes, comfortable to walk on snow and water. This shoe is first invented in 1912 by Leonwood Bean. He used a very interesting strategy to introduce his shoes to the mass. The very first lot of the shoes produced was handed over to his customers with a return back policy/ exchange policy. Unfortunately the first lot was not that big a success, though many customers bought the shoes, but were returned back due to non satisfaction. On this he reworked and dispatched a fresh lot to the customer’s back, which was a boom. His count for lovers kept increasing and its 100 years now that the duck book shoes are back in vogue with full swing. This time it’s not just the hunters but the college student also inn for the style.

Being fashionable!!! Is what all try every morning, right? Even I do. But the problem is pocket money. Which may be the same as last year and no increment, but the attires you need to pick up to keep trendy are becoming expensive every day, more than that often trends are changing. So how do we afford it?
Well let me tell you something interesting, I have sailed the same boat for some time now.
Finally today I have made fashion affordable for myself.
1. Accessories are the best way out. It gives you class when worn properly. Put on a plain tee with Denim or a skirt, high heels, a scarf around your neck, with studs. Just take care of the colors blended together. Prefer printed or contrast stoles over plain attire.
2. Tap a long chain on a plain tee and Denim combo, with a thin belt on the waist, if you have wear boots or flats will do well.
3. For a club visit, wear a plain attire may be a dress or trousers and add baling to it with earrings and may be a clutch bags and heels.
It is not always needed to buy expensive dresses. But when you have budget constraints I will suggest to pick and choose more of accessories as you can mix match and have a new look every day .Then pick up basic like solid color dresses, plain tee, dark color denims etc.
The other way to look elegant and trendy is to go for more of bright color attires, (it can be basic stuff) but the colors have a class of their own, they stand out.
