Remember when we asked male Philly Mag staffers to weigh in on their favorite goods from the Barneys Warehouse Clearance sale? Well, after the post, the men all agreed that the best pick went to design director Michael Wilson, who called out an awesome pair of wingtip lace-up boots.
But, much to the chagrin of some staffers, the boots quickly sold out (c’mon, they were marked down to $119.60 from $660). So this week’s fashion roundup was a no-brainer: 11 pairs of stylish men’s boots that are also on sale. A word to the wise: These steep markdowns will move quickly; get your trigger finger (and credit card) ready.
Psst: If you’re worried about salt stains, consult this tutorial for removing white marks and keeping your boots pristine.

Like a giant sparkly necklace or a fun printed coat, one accessory or clothing item can make an outfit. That’s why your requisite winter look of sweaters and jeans needs to be introduced to the statement bootie. Comfy and easy to slip on, the bold boot doesn’t need to be bright or gaudy to make a splash. Instead, opt for interesting textures (like tufts of fur!), embellishments or a play on classic neutrals (like tortoiseshell and bronze). Getting dressed doesn’t get much easier than this.

Jewelry designers are finally maximizing earring real estate with the advent of double-sided earrings. Rather than fastening your earring with clunky metal backs, or worse, the well-intentioned plastic variety, utilize both ends of the post with backs that create streamlined shapes or an unexpected profile. The best part? Most double-sided earrings give the illusion of being simple studs, so it’s a subtle way of adding some extra sparkle or hardware.
