Q. Joie makes some boots for fall that I love love love, but I can't justify the price unless I can think of a bunch of ways to wear them. Can you recommend a couple of different ways to style these? Is it possible to wear them in a business casual office?
A. Lace-up boots, both tall and short, are a huge trend for fall. We're loving them with everything from dresses and skirts to skinny jeans and leggings. You can certainly wear them to your business casual office with anything you would typically wear with a tall boot.
The military-inspired Joie Refugee boots you love are a bit of an investment at $535, but they're sure to be your go-to boot this fall and winter if you do take the plunge. The great news is, there are many similar boots available for a lot less money if you like the look but aren't too attached to the brand name. Check out these more affordable alternatives:
