From over-the-knee and Chelsea to combat and riding, there are approximately a million different kinds of boots to choose from. (OK, that's an exaggeration, but there are lots.)
They're all great, but if you choose to splurge on one, we suggest neutral-colored ankle boots with a low block heel.
Why? For a couple reasons: They'll never go out of style (meaning you can keep wearing them year after year), and they go with tons of different outfits. In the fall and winter, wear them with skinny jeans or black pants. Come spring, slip them on with a swingy skirt and you’re good to go.
Stick to a mid-height, stacked heel, which is shockingly comfortable, easy to walk in and adds a flattering amount of length to your legs.
