The Riding Boot

Why You Need It

The riding boot is a wardrobe staple because it can be worn with everything. While it looks best with a jeans and tee outfit, the boot is versatile enough to become the every day shoe. This boot is for everyone, especially the girl who loves flats but lives in a city that requires a covered foot during the cooler seasons.

How to Wear It

  • Skinny jeans with an off the shoulder sweater
  • Sweater dress paired with leggings
  • Chambray top over a tank with slim pants
  • Cropped long sleeve tee with high-waisted riding pants

The Combat Boot

Why You Need It

The combat boot is the new wardrobe staple. It’s the go-to boot for girls who prefer sneakers over flats, and can instantly add a toughness to any look. This is a boot that has the Converse effect, meaning it can get scuffed or cracked and the imperfections will enhance the style.

How to Wear It

  • Lace dress with a leather jacket
  • Flannel tied around skinny jeans with a graphic tee
  • Oversized sweater with leather leggings
  • Basic tee and high-waisted jeans

The ‘Bootie’ Boot

Why You Need It

This boot comes in a variety of styles from casual to dressy. The classic ankle boot is a simple black cut with a thin heel. It’s the perfect weather-appropriate heel for the office girl.

How to Wear It

  • White button-up blouse with slim black pant
  • Fitted midi dress
  • Boyfriend blazer over a slim cut v-neck and cuffed boyfriend jeans
  • Printed loose blouse tucked into a pencil skirt

The Trendy Boot

Why You Need It

This one is more of a ‘want’ than a need. With all the wardrobe staples, why not have a little fun with a trendier piece? The Lita-style boot has been the hot ticket item this year, so pick out a color or print that fits your style and wear them with confidence.

How to Wear It

  • Solid tee with slim jeans
  • Oversized cropped sweater with high-waisted maxi skirt and beanie
  • Daytime dress with patterned tights and a leather jacket
  • Graphic tee with high-waisted shorts and sheer tights

Which boot is your must-have this season?
