The Boots Celebs Wear With Skinny Jeans and Leggings

"Celebrities—they're just like us!" is a phrase you read in magazines that accompanies photos of stars grocery shopping or walking into the gym. While red carpet fashion may not always feel relatable, celebrities really do favour off-duty uniforms much like yours. Case in point? Their cold-weather footwear of choice: cool boots.

If you're in the market for a new pair, it's important to find a style that works with both your go-to skinny jeans and leggings. Taking inspiration from style stars and It girls, we rounded up five boot styles that work just as well with denim as they do with your favourite off-duty look. So before you invest in a new pair of boots, see the styles you'll need to get you through the next couple of months. Embrace the cool weather with the four styles of boots below.
