Cold weather means boots

Boots! They’re all I can think about right now in this extremely cold weather.

It may be all innocent looking out your window, but as soon as you step outside, it’s a quick dash to the car. I’m feeling sorry for my feet right now and so it’s time to stock up on more boots.

When it’s snowing outside, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is what outfit looks great in the snow. So here are some stylish boots to give your outfit a little boost on these cold dreary days.

• Waterproof conquest style boot. They’re cute but tough enough to endure the harshness of the dirty and wet snow days.

• Leather ankle boots. Belting details around the ankle give you that rider boot feel and you can dress them up or down. The Prescott ankle mid boot is a great example.

• Manchester tall boot. The distressed looking leather on these boots are quite nice. You can tell they’re quality leather at first sight.

• Fold-over printed lining combat boot. These boots were popular last season and still are now. You can opt for not folding the top over for a more polished look.

• Tall riding boots. These boots are nice and polished and look great on anyone regardless if you’re a rider or not. They look great with over-the-knee knitted socks or tights.

• Timberland boots. These boots very popular in the early 2000s. I remember when Manolo Blahnik made the high heeled version. I think of Beyonce wearing them in her 2003 Bonnie and Clyde video. But these classic boots are back and styled better than ever.

• Uggs. Yes, they are still in and I don’t think they will be going anywhere any time soon. There are many styles of them so anyone should be able to find a pair that suits them.

Boots are one of the best parts of dressing for the winter. It’s not so much about the clothing because we’re all just trying to stay warm. So, let your boots do the talking.
