It’s fall, so it’s time to bust out the boots; a great pair of flat boots is an investment worth making. Flat boots are comfortable and practical and super cute. And they go with everything.
Now you’re skeptical, aren’t you? But really, you can wear your flat boots with pretty much anything in your closet.

You know you can wear your boots with skinny jeans; for a great casual Friday look that doesn’t involve jeans, substitute a pair of skinny corduroys. Not a skinny jeans girl? Pair your boots with a skirt or dress.

The hem of your skirt or dress should hit somewhere between the top of your kneecap and the middle of your thigh, depending on your age and comfort level. The closer you are to 40, the closer your hem should be to your knee. Trust me on this.
No matter what your age, steer clear of the long long hemline with your boots; show a little leg between the boots and the skirt. Fill the gap with tights that match your boots, for the longest leg line. Add a slip if needed, both to keep your skirt from sticking to your tights and for extra warmth. Or look for tights with some shine to them — the higher spandex content will make them less likely to latch on to your skirt.
