They are a good investment because you can basically wear them through fall, winter, and spring.
#2. DON’T PUT AWAY THOSE BOOTS JUST YET.
Before you get giddy about those colorful peep toes and sandals, at least make the most of your winter boots first. You might have enjoyed wearing your boots with your skinny jeans or leather trousers in winter. But in spring, those boots will surely look great when worn with flirty skirts and dresses.
