I actually hesitated about making this quick guide just about boots: not all of us favor boots during the cold season. And especially, not routinely! But let’s go trough the essential footwear for fall and winter and you can share your mind in the comments section!

{1} Tall Boots

everyone needs a pair. You can tuck your jeans in or wear them with a skirt or a dress, a nice looking pair of tall boots with or without high heel, will make a great addition to your fall closet!

Keep in mind that when you’re buying that pair of tall boots, there should be enough space around your calf to allow your jeans to fit in.
