Secretly, I wish for cool weather as long as possible so that I can continue to wear my winter clothing and shoes as I’m a sucker for winter fashion! Who doesn’t love a great coat, scarf and, of course, boots! There are so many boot varieties– booties, over-the-knee, leather, suede and an assortment of colors. But how do you wear them? I often get asked as a Style Coach. From cuffing your jeans to the color of denim to wear with your boots, I’ve got you covered.
Don’t let the rules “control” your style, of course, but rather let them guide you when crafting outfits that make you look and feel your best.
1.DO: Rock tall boots with a midi dress.
DON’T: Try this look if you are more petite. If you are more petite, instead wear a pair of ankle booties with a midi dress.

2. DO: Cuff your skinny jeans slightly when wearing ankle booties to have the hem hit at the top of the bootie.
DON’T: Tuck jeans into ankle booties, unless they are fitted and ankle length (aka nothing too long or bunchy).

3.DO: Try out a trendier jean style like cropped kick flare jeans with a taller stacked heel bootie.
DON’T: Wear this trendy jean and bootie style with a longer top or sweater. Keep the outfit balanced with a more tailored or half-tucked top.

4. DO: Pair your basic stacked ankle booties with fray hem jeans.
DON’T: Break up your visual vertical line too much with contrasting jean and bootie colors (ex: black booties with white jeans). Stick to similar neutral tones to create an elongated look.
