Getting the Boot

By Silhouettes1 · December 8, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

For Thanksgiving dinner this year I decided to wear a sweater dress, tights, and knee-high boots. But, while I thought I had tall boots from a few years ago, turns out I didn’t! (I’d given them to Goodwill). Fortunately a quick trip to the mall remedied my problem—because tall boots are EVERYWHERE.

How do you know which tall boots to choose? In some ways they’re all very much alike: neutral colors (mostly black) with a similar shape. But style detail (zippers? scrunch or no? etc.) and heel height can vary a lot between boots.

How did I choose? I picked boots that fit me and were easy to get on. I wanted black, because my sweater dress and tights were shades of gray. And I like basic, so I stayed away from some of the wilder detailing or incredibly high heels.

Your boot choice should be all about what you like and what's comfortable for you. If you can’t find a style you like at a particular store, don’t settle! With all the options out there right now, you will eventually find your perfect set of tall boots. Check out Silhouettes' collection of boots here, and pick out the styles you love.
