The winter season is officially upon us, and while some of us can’t wait for the cold days to pass so we can whip out our sunglasses and get our tan on, we all still have to get through the cool nights and, for some, snowy days! Planning your outfit around the weather is essential, but can be difficult especially if you don’t know which shoes will meet all of the basic needs: complimenting your outfit, keeping you warm, all the while still looking sexy. Regardless of the weather outside, no outfit is complete without the perfect footwear and no shoe is more perfect for any occasion (or season) than boots! Flat, high heeled, knee high, or ankle, leather, suede, or weather-specific–there is a perfect boot for every occasion this season.
Whether your weather is bipolar, warm, or absolutely freezing, you can never go wrong with a pair of boots to stay comfortable and look absolutely stylish at the same time. Take out that Christmas money and read more about the 5 boots you need this season below!
