Just because it’s getting cold doesn’t mean you have to dial down the heat and cancel your date nights. There are more options than ever to wear stylish winter ensembles while staying warm. When it comes to dressing up or accessorizing an outfit, your footwear can instantly change the whole vibe of your look. Thankfully, with so many types of women’s winter boots, you can find the perfect pair for your date night ensemble.
If you are looking for comfort, style, or both, dynamic boots can offer you the support and comfortable soles that you need to last all day long and then paint the town red all night. So go on, throw on your favorite winter coat and sassy outfit finished off by a pair of the ultimate date night boots for a look that will turn heads.
Here are our five best boots for date night.
High-heeled boots are always sexy, and you can wear them with everything from skinny jeans to miniskirts. They keep you warm (they are boots, after all!) but they also have a heel that makes them a little more eye-catching and appropriate to top off your evening ensembles. High-heeled boots are available in a wide variety of patterns and materials from leopard print to snakeskin or leather.
Depending on the dress code you are looking to attain, high-heeled boots can be paired with women's jeans for a more casual look or a skirt or dress for a hotter vibe. Add a long winter coat for a classic look that is elegant, warm, and very attractive.
Booties are a playful spin on your required winter footwear. Shorter than typical high winter boots, they tend to be more casual or trendy. They also come in patterns such as animal print, with design elements like shiny zippers or a chunky heel. Booties are best suited for more moderate temperatures as they don’t provide as much coverage to protect you from the cold, but you can stay warmer by tucking your pants or jeans inside them.
One go-to look is a patterned bootie with black skinny jeans and a women’s cashmere sweater. Throw on a hat and scarf, and you have a classic monochromatic ensemble that can easily take you from daytime to date night. Enhance the drama with bold jewelry like drop diamond earrings or simple gold hoops. This will let you dial up the heat with very little effort. Add a black long coat for an all-black outfit that demands to be noticed.
Tall boots, such as riding boots or zippered boots, typically hit right at the knee and higher. They are easy to dress up or down and come in a variety of materials. Try tall boots with dresses during winter, or pair them with dark jeans or pants and a sweater for an elegant and timeless style. Tall boots are extra comfortable during the winter when you want just a little more protection from the cold weather.
If you’re serious about staying warm, look for tall boots with an inner lining made from Sherpa or fleece. Just because these boots are tall doesn’t mean you should forgo a heel; tall boots come with heel types from chunky heels to stilettos. For added support and comfort when you’re on the go, look for tall boots with a flat heel that are equally as flattering.
Chelsea boots are so classic! Their mid-calf height is flattering with jeans, and they are so understated that they can be dressed up or down. Their expandable siding makes them unique, and their almost equestrian style makes them traditional, classic, and completely on-trend. Pair Chelsea boots with your favorite jeans and an oversized sweater for a relaxed, cozy look that says fun and adventurous. These boots come in all colors and materials, although you can’t go wrong with a good traditional leather Chelsea boot.
When you’re looking for a pair of winter boots with height but also want support, wedge boots are the ultimate solution. While offering a stacked and stable heel, wedge boots add height while also giving you a comfortable base. Available in high boots or shorter booties, wedge boots are suitable for all ages and look phenomenal when paired with bootcut jeans or even a mini skirt or dress. Add a trench coat with your wedge boots peeking out for a classic and sassy look that deserves attention.
There might be snow in the forecast, but that doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on style for your next date night. These boot styles will be the perfect addition to your ensemble.
