Flare Fabulous Faux Fur Accents Jazz Up Outfits

It was a light bulb moment for Kim O’Connor when she snipped away at “old tried and true (ski) pants” and fashioned her first pair of Boot Chic to wear with her ski apparel.

Now a full fledged, fun fashion accessories’ line…Boot Chic, made of faux fur in assorted colors and patterns, are over the boot cover attachments…with coordinating scarves, headbands, and wristlets. It’s an inexpensive way to dress up an outfit-on or off the slopes.

We missed Boot Chic at the recent Outdoor Retailer show but met the founder on a sunny day in NYC recently.

Turns out, Kim O’Connor’s first pair was a pink ostrich boot cover to pair with her white jacket and black pants.

“Everyday is a new look and at the end of the day, you can shake them off and they dry,” she told us.

Popular options of the easy to put on (via an adjustable elastic cinch with a button hole)--- include bold animal prints.

Boot Chic comes in two adult sizes…s/m and large. And an adorable children’s collection to wear with Uggs, skates, leggings or with jeans is also available.

PRICES: $78-$98, Wristlets $20, Headbands $14, and children’s $38-$48.
