Ciao a tutti!
Undoubtedly a must have for the winter season, a tall boot provides protection and warmth against the snow and cold; fashion is often sacrificed for function, and durability for luxury, when braving the elements, but an ultra-feminine way to stay chic when the temperature drops is with a tall dress boot.
When looking for the perfect dress boot (a boot to be worn with a dress or skirt), I highly recommend three things:
1) Buy a pair of tall boots. Functionally they are warmer than their shorter counterparts, and their longer length give an overall sleeker appearance when they peek out from below long skirts, or when paired with shorter skirts.
2) Invest in a pair of tall boots with a comfortable heel or wedge; while taller woman have a frame that can accommodate a long skirt, for those of us who are vertically challenged, a long dress or skirt can easily overwhelm a shorter frame. A boot with a heel will offset the length of skirt, allowing it to fall the way it was designed.
3) Buy a tall, comfortable heeled boot with an almond toe. Long skirts and dresses can make you appear taller provided you style them correctly, and one way to do this is with a boot with a tapered toe. This style creates the illusion of longer legs as one's eye is drawn upward from the toe. Additionally, while pointy-toed footwear is back in style, the almond toe is more comfortable, the style is enduring, and men happen to find it more attractive!
Baci a tutti!
