Behold, the Boot: Three Must-Have Pairs

I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many boots (just ask my closet). But if you have to choose just a few, these are the three styles no winter wardrobe should go without.

Snow Boots
A must-have for après-ski activities (just pair with leggings and a chunky knit sweater), these boots are also lifesavers on snowy New England commutes.

Riding Boots
A horseback riding staple, you don’t have to be an equestrienne to rock these classic English-style boots. For best results, opt for a pair in rich camel or black patent leather.

Booties
Say hello to your new best friend. From skinny jeans and tights to cocktail dresses with bare legs, booties literally go with everything. Tip: For a casual look, try rocking them with scrunched-up socks.

ELLE Editor's Selections: Fall Boots

The boot. It very well could be the most important piece of your fall fashion arsenal. And with such a wide variety to choose from this season, we had ELLE Editor Winifred Wang hand-pick her favorite styles for our ELLE Editor’s Selections: Fall Boots Boutique (opens September 16 at 11AM ET). Here, she dishes on ways to rock every type of boot this season – and kick your look up a notch.

Rue La La: This season, with boots of every height, from ankle booties to over-the-knee, how do you decide which height to wear with each look?
Winifred: It’s all about playing with proportions. If you’re wearing over-the-knee, I wouldn’t go too short on the skirt or dress for risk of looking a bit tart-y. But, you can go a bit shorter with knee-high boots.
