Riding boots are a staple item of any stylish woman’s winter wardrobe. Not only are they comfortable and fashionable, they’re easy to dress up for a special occasion or down for informal days. Choose a pair that is cut straight, making them easy to pull on and off. A slight heel of about an inch gives you a tiny boost without being overpowering. Pair black riding boots with faded skinnies for trips to the mall, or brown ones with a fur coat and dark jeans for a dressier occasion. Don’t be afraid to splurge on good quality riding boots. They will be your go-to boots for years to come.
No longer relegated to strippers and hookers, the modern thigh-high boots are chic and stylish. Rock your thigh-highs with a pair of skinny jeans for a fashion-forward look. Wear yours flat for a daytime look, or choose a pair of heeled thigh-highs if you have the confidence to pull them off. Just stay away from anything that makes you think of Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman”.
Take the skinny look one step further with a pair of tight, knee-high heeled boots. With knee-highs, the options for color, material and style are endless. Cute heels in neutral tones are more casual. For a more daring look, pair colorful knee-high suede heels with dark denim skinnies and a top in the same color family as your boots. If you’re looking for a touch of sophistication, tuck dark or black skinny jeans into dark brown or black leather knee-highs.
If knee- or thigh-high boots aren’t your bag, go with some stylish ankle boots to polish off your look. A plain black pair with skinny jeans looks chic with a longer top that skims your hips. Or slip on a shirt or sweater dress with your skinnies and ankle boots. To add a little pizzazz to your outfit, have some fun with your boots. Go for bright colors, a peep toe, or patent leather. But if you snazzy up your feet with funky boots, keep the rest of your outfit simple so the attention stays on your cute boots.
