With boots all the rage this season, not one particular style stands out. Go to any shoe store and you will find a variety of boot styles. Let's break it down and figure out which one is for you:
Classic Boot (below or right at the knee): Great for jeans, dresses of all lengths, and pants.
Mid Calf Boot: best for short dresses and skirts.
Over the Knee (thigh high): this look can be extreme if not worn correctly. Wear with long cardigans, sweaters, scarves. Keep it loose on top in the form of feminine blouses to avoid looking like a hooker. Rule of thumb: fitted on bottom, loose on top or loose on bottom, more fitted up top. No Catwoman ladies!
Ankle Boot (booties): like your Grannie's, only much cuter! These boots look best with leggings, skinny jeans, and the boyfriend jean. They give an edge to any outfit and are a carryover trend from Springs gladiator sandals. Look for suede, leather, peep toe. Most of them will be embellished with heavy metal hardware, some I've seen with Victorian style lace-ups. For extra pizazz add ankle chains and bracelets.
