Want to Look Better in Boots? Follow These 9 Rules

If you are a true boot person by nature, then you know how crucial it is to have a closet stacked with styles aplenty. However, endless boot styles won't do anything for you if they aren't styled properly. This is where we turn to the experts—fashion bloggers. We will admit, stealing a pair of boots or two from their well-curated closets doesn't sound like the worst thing in the world, but instead of actually stealing shoes, we are going to steal style tips. 

What we love most about the way bloggers wear their array of boots, is that they explore some of the styles we might originally be too timid to try. For example, patent rust ankle boots, shiny metallic boots, and chic working boots. Whether a classic look is more your style, or you are craving an outfit that is more daring than your usual go-to, the boot styling rules ahead are going to ensure you look your absolute best in any boot style of your choosing this season and beyond.
