It's time to break out the boots. Here are 4 great ways to wear them.

  • Oxford style booties are great for fall, but tend to make the legs look shorter because they stop at the ankle. Pairing this style with dark tights will help to avoid this problem by creating a continuous line. Dark colors tend to slim the leg as well.

  • Pair flat, slouchy boots with a short, cotton dress. It's cute, casual, and appropriate for Fall. Wear it day or night for an chic look.

  • Tuck your jeans into your boots. This look is best with snug-fitting skinny jeans (even if you only own a pair for this purpose). If you are on the curvier side, try wearing high heel slouchy boots. The extra bulk of the boot will help to balance your proportions and the heels will help to lengthen your legs.

  • Try wearing knee socks with tall boots. This look can be done over tights or leggings with dresses or skirts. Make sure that the socks have a cool pattern: argyle, plaid, really anything goes. And make sure to keep the boot simple to let the socks shine! This is a definitely a different look, and is a great way to add some flavor to an otherwise ordinary outfit.

Most importantly, however you decide to rock your boots, do it with confidence!
