Boots are back in major way for fall! Boots of all kinds from the sexy, edgy over the knee boots to comfy, flat boots to spiked heel booties to slouchy boots in a wide range of colors are available at your favorite stores. Venture out from your basic black leather and instead opt for caramel distressed leather, velvety gray suede or a bright shade of purple. Knee high or over the knee boots still look great with tucked in skinny jeans or leggings and booties can be worn with dark tights and pencil skirts. Invest in a pair of great boots this season! Check out the great selections at www.piperlime.com, www.zappos.com and www.shopbop.com.
Over the knee boot are the new kid on the block this season and you need to keep a few things in mind so that you stay looking stylish instead of trampy. Tone down the color palette of your outfit and boots, keep it to shades of black, gray and cream, avoid looking trashy by covering up with opaque tights, longer skirts and jackets or wear them over a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, avoid patent leather opt for matte leather or suede and keep your other accessories simple, let the boots be the main attraction.

Flat boots are the ultimate marriage between fashion and comfort. Keep from looking frumpy by buying them a interesting color or with fun details and always pair them with sleek, super skinny pants or jeans and keep your outfit monochromatic to elongate the look.

Pull your short booties back out from last season and invest in another pair in a great color or with interesting details like zippers, flowers or peep toes. Wear them with short skinny pants that hit right at the top of the boots or with dresses and skirts with tights. Avoid tights with the peep toe booties, tights look okay with peep toe pumps but just silly with the bootie, you can wear footless tights and leggings if you want to keep your legs warm.
