To be able to stay warm during these winter months, you need to choose the right footwear. If your feet are cold or wet there is no way that the rest of you will feel warm.

Most people find boots to be the most practical option, which is why the big fashion retailers like JD Williams stock so many different types. They look after consumers of all ages, shapes and sizes, so always offer a big range of styles.

It is great to have a choice, but, it can take you a while to narrow down your options and select a pair that works for you. But, if you follow the tips below you should find it a lot easier to do so.

Find out what the latest trends are

If you a bit of a fashionista, you will no doubt want to follow the latest trends, which means you need to go online and do a bit of research before going shopping. Visiting websites like Vogue, Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar is the easiest approach.


Comfort comes first

However, it is important not to get carried away and buy the first pair of boots that catch your eye. You need to put comfort before fashion. Unless, of course, you know that are only going to be wearing your boots for a few hours at a time. For example, for a party, comfort is not necessarily the most important consideration.

How and when you plan to wear them

It is really important to think about when you are likely to want to wear your boots. If you want a pair for work, they need to blend in with your work wardrobe, meet the dress code and be comfortable enough to wear all day.

Will they keep your feet warm?

Your boots need to keep your feet warm. If you are going to be wearing them mainly indoors you can probably get away with buying a pair with thin soles. Whereas, for the commute to work or the school run, you would need a pair with fairly thick soles to stop the cold seeping up into your feet.


Will they keep your feet dry?

If you find a pair that are not already waterproofed you may still be able to buy them. You just need to go to this article to determine whether one of the footwear waterproofing techniques outlined there will work for the boots you are planning to buy.

Pairing them with the perfect dress

If you have decided to buy long boots, you could potentially wear them with a dress. These look especially good when worn with a skirt that finishes at the top of the boot and they can also work for a full-length dress. All you have to do is to choose the right dress.
