What does Joan Collins have to say about your boots?

By SterlonStyle — October 26, 2014

“I think bare legs in winter are idiotic. Unless your naked pins are toned, tanned and veinless, it’s best to cover up. There is nothing more elegant in winter than dark tights worn with matching knee-length boots and a belted trench coat.” ~Joan Collins

Advice from such a fashion icon cannot be wrong.

Boot weather is here. I’m busy shopping for the perfect boots for my clients so their toes will be warm and dry all fall and winter long. What boots to buy? Here are the top 3 you need to get you through the fall/winter season in comfort and style:

1) Tall Dress Boot
2) Riding Boot
3) Wellie/All Weather

Here are 2 important FIT TIPS before you buy:
1) SHAFT HEIGHT: Stand bare-foot and measure your shaft height from floor to bottom of knee.
2) CALF: Measure your Calf at widest part of your muscle.

* Most websites list a fit guide, see if calf is too narrow or too wide for you.
* Determine if your shaft height is mid-calf, below knee, or above the knee.
* Also look for wide, narrow, medium widths not just for your foot, but for your calf as well.
* Over the knee boots are in fashion again and look best if you’re tall and can pull off that proportion – or worn with leggings, tights and shorter skirts.
* The most flattering shaft height is 14-15-16″ max, just under the knee no matter your height.

Here’s how to put it all together some great “boot” looks for fall:
