Whether you’re headed to a holiday work bash or attending a family gathering with your partner, boots are an essential part of your winter wardrobe. From over-the-knee boots to ankle booties, there’s a boot to fit every occasion and outfit throughout the season’s festivities. We’ve put together some of the season’s hottest boot trends that offer a perfect way to complete your holiday look.
Add a Touch of Romance with Velvet Boots
The velvet craze has been hot in the past couple of years and donning a pair of velvet booties the perfect way to add a touch of romance to your holiday look. Jewel toned velvet boots look dreamy with a flowing dress, while over-the-knee, black velvet boots look perfect with a mini dress in winter white.
You can even take a note from Taylor Swift and take a conservative look to the next level with a pair of red velvet boots.
Get Festive with Metallic Boots
Metallic boots offer a more festive way to go neutral with your footwear, and they’re hot this year with celebs like Gig Hadid slipping into them this year. Both gold and silver metallic look great with nearly anything, and they can take even a simple knitted dress and make it look like you’re ready to party.
Whether you’re wearing a jumpsuit, mini skirt, or something long and flowing, you just can’t go wrong by adding metallic boots. Adding statement earrings and a shiny clutch and you’re ready for any event.

Pair Over-the-Knee Boots with a Holiday Mini
A holiday mini pairs beautifully with a pair of over-the-knee boots, and celebrities and models like Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Jennifer Lawrence, and Chrissy Teigen have all been seen in them. Black suede looks especially great paired with a black mini and a sparkly top. Just make sure the skirt is short enough that you show just a bit of skin between the mini and the boots.

Make a Statement with Red Suede Booties
Whether you’re dressing up for a holiday event or you’re going to a casual soiree in jeans, red suede booties are the perfect way to make your look pop. Simple skinny jeans and a soft sweater look perfect when you add suede booties in a fiery red to the mix. A little black dress or a long maxi dress both get a holiday edge when paired with red suede booties, too.
Basic Black Stiletto Boots for Elegant Holiday Parties
According to Harper’s Bazaar, basic black stiletto boots with an ultra-pointed toe are the breakout footwear star of the 2018-19 fall/winter season. While they always look on point with a pair of skinny jeans (Chrissy Teigen loves this look – even at the airport), they also are a perfect addition to an elegant look for a formal holiday party. Wear them just like you would your favorite stilettos – they look great with nearly any elegant party dress or even a little black tux.
