7 Boot Style Every Woman Should Own

 unnamed

 

So Fall is just around the corner – womp, I know! Like it or not, it’s just about that time to start thinking about layering and bundling up. I’m personally not a fan of the colder weather – I’m a summer girl at heart. So with summer almost coming to an end, it can be a bit depressing for me. But that’s another story- or blogpost. I’m still trying to master the skill of layering – a littler secret, I really don’t layer that much when the temperature drops. I just throw on my coat and go! My thinking is as long as my legs, ears and hands are covered and my coat is on I’ll be okay. I mean, I never dress planning on staying out in the cold for long anyways. For me boots are one of my favourite pieces to wear in Fall/Winter to show off my style. The styles are endless and you can easily work them in your hectic schedule from day to night. To help you out in the boot department, I’ve done my research and found seven boot styles every woman should own. Okay maybe not all seven, but you get what I’m saying.

 

ANKLE BOOTS

These boots are perfect for casual weekend wear. Wear them with some jeggings paired with a biker jacket in the Fall/Winter or for a more festival look pair them with a dress in the summer.

RAIN BOOTS

Rain boots have become super chic and stylish these days. They look best over skinny pants, but can also be pulled off with a dress or skirt for us commuters.

RIDING BOOTS

OPEN-TOE BOOTS
