3 Types of Boots You Need This Winter

With the temperatures dropping and the snow falling, you’re going to need boots that keep you warm this winter. However, that doesn’t mean you have to throw style out the window! There are three specific styles of boots that you should have in your closet for the chilly season because they’re the best of both worlds (warmth & style).

I used to despise the rainy/snowy season because I never knew what to wear, but now that I’ve figured out which shoes are appropriate, it’s easy-peasy to get dressed in the morning!

Here are three styles of boots that you should certainly have in your wardrobe this winter…

(1) Combat Boots

It’s taken a few years for me to get used to the combat boot look because originally I felt like they just weren’t me. However now that I’ve styled them a few different ways I know how versatile and convenient they are for the winter time.

A combat boot can take your look from a 5 to a 10 within seconds, and they really do look great with just about anything. Even if you’re a skirts and dresses kind of gal, a combat boot can add an edgy feel to your girly look. They also look great with a pair of skinny jeans or leather leggings and an oversized sweater.

(2) Patent Boots

I’ve never been the type to wear traditional rain boots so when I found my first pair of patent booties I was happily surprised that they kind of double as them! A patent boot is like the stylish version of a rain boot. They come in all different colours and styles and with a thick pair of socks they actually keep your feet nice and cozy!

Depending on the length of the boot, they can be styled with jeans, skirts, trousers and dresses. The options are endless with this style!

(3) Knee High Leather Boots

This is the first year that I’ve actually purchased a pair of knee high boots and seriously WHAT was I waiting for?! I got two pairs of scrunched leather knee highs, one white pair and one black, and let me tell you, they are GORG.

Since I’ve recently been wearing skirts more often, I knew that I had to at least try on a pair of knee highs. It’s always been difficult for me to buy taller boots because I’m so short (4’10”) LOL, but I finally found a pair that fits!!

It’s obvious that this style of boot keeps you warm and the best part is that you can wear dresses and skirts with them in the winter time without freezing your butt off.

Out of these three boot styles, what is your favourite?

How to Wear a Beret With Short Hair

I’ve heard a lot of women complain about not being able to wear berets because of their short hair. Now that I’ve chopped mine off and had the chance to try on a few hats, I’ve figured out what the best ways are to wear a beret with short locks.

The problem that usually arises when hats are tried on with short hair is the ears sticking out! Fortunately there are ways around this little annoyance 😉 Keep reading to find out how you can prevent elf ears in your beret!

#1 Behind the Ear

One of the chicest ways to wear a beret is with one side of hair behind your ear. This allows you to pull the beret a little lower down on the other side, thus covering your other ear!

#2 Slouched to One Side

If you don’t want to expose your ears, try styling the beret off to the side! You’ll be warm and stylish 🙂

#3 Pulled Back

This may not work for super short bobs, but if you’re able to pull your hair back into a little ponytail or bun, do it! This is a really sleek look and makes the beret very easy to put on!
