You don’t need a pair of boots to look cool, stylish, trendy, fashionable, or fabulous. A pair of ill-fitting, poorly-crafted, or inappropriate boots will only make you look awkward, unstylish, and possibly tacky. I say this as a woman who has owned purple suede kitten-heel boots just because they fit her calves but not her personal style. As one who has purchased the pleather boots with the too-thick heel and the too-square toe just because they had a good fit and price. And as a woman who notices the attire of other women on the street and too many times sees a gorgeous woman in a lovely ensemble ruined by a pair of boots.
You don’t need the boots. Buy the boots if they are perfect, if you love them, and if they make you look and feel amazing. Otherwise, take pride in knowing yourself to not fall for every “must-have” trend.
