Tasteful ways to dress up your boots

When the snow blankets the city, your fashion choices are kind of limited. Boots tend to become an everyday item, causing you to find creative ways to style them. Head to a used clothes store for tons of footwear options, and try the following tips to look super chic this winter:

All-black look
You'll look ultra stylish in an all-black getup. The key is to combine different textures so your outfit looks a bit nuanced. For example, wear leather skinny jeans with suede riding boots. Then complete the outfit with a ribbed knit sweater.

Skirt-boots combo
It's possible to wear boots with a skirt and still look appropriate for school. Just select a skirt that falls right at your knees. However, if you opt for a shorter one, wear opaque tights as well.

Toned-down dress
Boots allow you to get extra mileage out of your dresses. They help tone down the look so you can wear it for multiple occasions. For example, take a below-the-knee frock you wore over the holiday season and pair it with boots in a contrasting color. Your previous holiday look is now perfect for a night on the town.
