Since I’ve started writing for CollegeFashionista, I have become much more observant about the way people accessorize their outfits. A pair of pants and a top doesn’t necessarily complete an outfit. Something I’ve picked up on is that the easiest way to make a good outfit great is with a solid pair of shoes.

While this Fashionista was headed to class in her dark wash jeans and flowy red top, her knee-high boots bring the outfit together for a casual, wintery vibe. For those not familiar with the weird weather habits in Florida, this look is substantial enough for those days it starts out below 40 degrees, and somehow warms up to mid 70’s before lunch.

Knee-high boots are the perfect accessory to wear in the awkward transition between seasons. If there is a cold front, layer them with a pair of cozy knit socks. Or, if it is not as chilly outside, they would perfectly complement a simple dress and a jean jacket that can be easily taken on and off, depending on the temperature.

These shoes can be effortlessly transitioned from a casual daytime look when paired with jeans, as displayed by this Fashionista, but can also be worn at night when dressed up with a dress. Regardless of when you wear them, knee-high boots can tie any look together.

How To: Next time you are looking to dress up your outfit, consider adding a pair of tall boots to leggings, jean pants, a dress or even a skirt. This accessory can enhance essentially any ensemble.
