‘Tis the season to dust off the boots in your closet and think about that one pair you need to maintain your sanity this winter.
Today, Ageless Style is sharing our TOP 5 favorite boots. Some boots are closet staples and continue to make a comeback season after season.
The Girly Stiletto aka the Sock Boot
Why do we love the sock boot so much? This pointed toe boot ranks #1 in our closet because it elevates any casual outfit. Not wearing a dress today and don’t feel like putting on a heel with your pants? Sock boot it is! Plus, they can be worn year-round in many ways! Can it get any better?
Our second must have boot has several interpretations. Generally, the riding boot is a stacked or flat-heeled boot skimming your mid-calf or falling below the knee. We love to pair this boot with denim. If you are self-conscious about your knees, we advise you to avoid combining a riding boot with a dress. The riding boot is best styled as an “equestrian look.”
Over the Knee Boots
My personal favorite is the over the knee boot! I LOVE a stacked or flat-heeled over the knee boot because I have image issues with my calves, knees, or legs. However, these boots transform my average stature of 5’5” into a longer, leaner, and sexier look. I style these boots with dresses and oversized sweaters. This look is flattering on everyone. Show some thigh with your boot but keep the tops longer and oversized. It creates balance.
Ankle boots are our 4th runner-up! These booties stop at the ankle. They come in many shapes and styles. Ankle boots are most flattering on women with leaner calves and legs. Women with pear-shaped bodies look best in an ankle boot when they are wearing a midi-dress or midi-skirt (over the knees). Otherwise, we love a good ankle boot with pencil denim jeans or pants and everything else!
Finally, the UGG boot or UGG style boot. Yes, we said it. We don’t necessarily mean that UGGs are still trending. Colors and styles have evolved over the years. There is something about this shearling boot that evokes warmth and the essence of fall and winter. We love a suede, shearling boot with denim jeans and a traditional flannel or sweater. Besides, ’tis the season to keep those toes warm!
Wait! I forgot one!
I forgot the rain boot! Our favorite rain boot is obviously Hunter. We love the colors, heights, and additional Hunter accessories. Rain boots are by far a NECESSITY for everyone’s wardrobe. They are great in the snow and on the beach! What a wonderful way to walk the shoreline in colder weather! Do not be traditional in your color choice when it comes to a rain boot. In a world where people walk with their heads down, colorful rain boots are a great way to find your children or beau.
Are you inspired to go shopping for a new pair?
Remember what Nancy Sintra said, “These boots are made for walking.” So have some fun and walk on!
