All women are in search for the magical shoe. You know, the one that will go with anything and everything, that you can throw on with a dress, a skirt, pants, leggings, shorts and so on. It's like the chupacabra of all things fashion, except that it exists! The key to finding this versatile boot that will match your entire wardrobe is to pick a color that you love and is neutral enough to complement any ensemble.


Black boots go with everything and that includes brown, ladies. You no longer need to adhere to the (silly) rules stating that neutrals don't mix. A fabulous pair of black boots to own are black ankle booties or even knee-high riding boots as both will go with almost every single item in your closet.


Tan suede scrunch boots, calf-high riding boots, military inspired lace-up boots -- all of these styles look perfect in tan. Natural colors like tan -- and you can modify this hue with a darker shade or a redder tone, for example -- are like blank slates and match well with other neutrals and brights.


Choose a boot somewhere in the gray spectrum, dark or light. It doesn't matter. You will be able to rock these with a dress, pants, any shirt and any color. To snazz up a gray boot, for a snazzy lady like yourself, pick a pair with texture or embellishments. As long as everything is still neutral, you can't go wrong.

Leopard Print

This might surprise you, but because traditional leopard print is made up of all neutral colors like black, browns and creams it becomes a neutral itself. According to "Lucky Magazine" fashion experts, "Leopard print wedges are an easy way to add style to any outfit." You'll instantly look more fashion-credible if you do this look well. However, to avoid overwhelming your outfit, stick to boots that don't cover your entire leg. For example, ankle-high flats or heeled boots are perfect.
