We all have those special accessories we can’t live without, whether it’s that glitzy statement necklace or your fave floppy hat that’s become part of your daily uniform.

Now that fall is here and winter is not officially arriving until December 21,  now is the perfect time to pick a new piece that will be the focal point of all your seasonal outfits.

What could be more appropriate for winter than a new pair of boots?

Invest in one of these four styles and you’ll instantly kick up your fashion game.

Biker Boots

You don’t need to own a Harley to rock these babies. Part tough-girl, part fashionista, they will add a cool girl vibe to your overly-feminine dresses, slouchy sweaters, and even sophisticated chiffon tops. This is the quintessential piece when you want to add edge and a little masculinity  to your outfit.

Ankle Boots

One of my favorite options, the ankle boot, is perfect for day or night. Ankle booties can appear classic and casual, effortless and bohemian, or just plain polished. Pair your booties with boyfriend jeans and a blazer, a long cardigan and leggings, or a graphic  bodycon dress.


Popularized by the Beatles in the 1960s, this androgynous style is back and better than ever. The close-fitting ankle boot usually comes in shades of black or tan and will give any outfit a sleek, minimalist vibe.

Still unsure of how to rock this British staple? Take a cue from some of London’s best dressed women, like Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung, who both have mastered rocking these boots with jeans.


This 70s bohemian-inspired boot may seem hard to pull off, but it’s surprisingly versatile. Over-the-knee boots not only ooze glamour when paired with a dress or fur coat, but they will also add serious sex appeal to a pair of skinny jeans.

Nothing says effortless style like the perfect pair of boots. Put your best foot forward and let your boots do the talking  (and walking).
