Boots may seem like a fall and winter clothing item, but they can be integrated into nearly any season's wardrobe. The key is finding the right boot style and fit for your wardrobe. This is where things get a little tricky.
Fall boots are part function and part fashion. The boots that you select need to provide a little insulation to protect your feet from the dropping temperatures and they need to be water proof to protect your feet from rainfall, sleet, slush and snow. When selecting a fall boot you will want to look for a style that offer a little traction and that fit the contour of your leg, as you will most likely still be wearing skirts during the fall months. The calf hugging fit will prevent rain and slush from falling down the boot and the snug fit will look balanced against your bare leg.
In the grand scheme of things most winter boots are going to be purchased for function as opposed to fashion. They need to provide your feet with protection from the cold, the snow and the ice. They also need to provide you with adequate traction. Once these basic functional aspects have been achieved you can focus on the fashion of the winter boot.
You will want to look for a winter boot style that is going to complement your winter outerwear wardrobe and that also flatter your personality. If you are a no-nonsense professional then select a neutral tone winter boot. However, if you are a wild child then go crazy with your winter boot colors and select bold options like electric blue or candy apple red.
Spring boots are similar to fall boots in that they are part function and part fashion. They will need to protect your feet from cooler temperatures and extra moisture. However, spring boots will have a lighter look to them. They will be slick, shiny and brightly colored. Have fun with your spring boot collection.
Summer boots are going to be nearly all fashion. They will be used for adding drama and sex appeal to an outfit. Summer boots can be made of anything from leather to canvas.
