Fall has finally arrived, but so has the cold weather. Everyone is starting to make the transition from summer sandals to warmer footwear.
I know some of you would love to shuffle around in fuzzy slippers all day, but you should be doing better than that.
Let’s make a fashion statement and replace the sandals or the slippers with a fall essential; the boot.
There is a boot for every kind of person: ankle boots, tall boots, heeled, flat, those that are made of leather, man made materials, or even sheepskin, you name it.
For a sophisticated look, I would opt for a dark red, dark brown or black boot with a heel.
I recommend picking a heel height that is slightly out of your comfort zone to master as you practice walking in your boot. You can also pick a heel you are more comfortable with, if you prefer.
Even though leather boots are usually more expensive than those made of synthetic materials, they are an investment because they last longer and allow your feet to breathe.
Make sure to treat your leather boots with the appropriate shoe polish right after you buy them to protect them from water damage and getting stained.
The height of boots is really your choice. Both ankle and taller boots work well with leggings and a warm dress, or with jeans.
