While you may be itching for spring to arrive and ready for sandals, this is a great time to think about boots. Why invest in a new pair of boots you ask? First off, it’s still cold enough to wear them this weekend. Secondly, stores are trying to clear out and get ready for spring, which means great sales! This is a great time to splurge on that item you’ve been dying to buy all winter but couldn’t justify spending your hard earned paycheck on. Or buy boots for next fall; just stay clear of anything too trendy as it may no longer be in style when you’re ready to wear them. However, a classic boot, bootie, or shootie is a cold weather must, so stock up while you can!
The 5 boots that your wardrobe’s missing:
1. A tall flat riding boot: This equestrian inspired boot is a wardrobe staple. Since it’s flat, you can pretty much wear it anywhere. It easily dresses up jeans and a t-shirt when running around doing errands and it’s comfortable enough to wear all day.
2. Lace-up mid calf boots: These wear everywhere boots are the perfect complement to that stack of band t-shirts in the back of your closet. They add a little edge, but don’t look like you’re trying too hard.
3 Over the knee boots: While over the knee is very trendy right now, it’s not a new style. The trick is to keep it chic rather than looking as if you stepped out of the movie “Pretty Woman.” The easiest way to not look like a working girl is simply to get a boot that goes right over the knee, rather than all the way up your thigh.
4: A peep-toe shootie: With all the peep-toes and cut-outs, these are certainly not practical winter boots. However, this is a great shoe to wear as the temperature starts to warms up making it perfect to buy right now. Wear it with your favorite summer dresses and a chic little jacket for the perfect outfit in April.
5: Stacked heel boots: You probably already own a pair of high heel boots, but a thick stacked heel is a great option because they’re heels which you can actually walk in! Dress them up for a nice dinner or down for everyday, these boots are a must.
