When autumn arrives, fashionistas unite in their quest for the perfect boot to wear throughout the cold season. The usual choices abound -- heel or no heel, ankle or knee, tan or black. When you want a boot that is both comfortable and fashionable, go for a tall, flat boot. Sometimes called a hunting boot, these boots can carry you through the day or evening in stylish comfort.


Your choice of tall boots is huge, depending on the look and style you like. Some tall boots extend past the knee and others end at the knee. Colors vary from black to assorted shades of brown. Choose simple boots with clean lines or boots with buckles. Flat boots usually have a short, stacked heel.


The most common way to wear tall, flat boots is with skinny jeans or leggings because they fit easily into the boots without added bulk. Denim blue jeans or any color leggings would work well when you pair them with these boots.


Try tall, flat boots with a skirt or dress for a flirty and fashionable statement. Any length is an option and virtually any style can work. A shorter skirt or dress with flounce looks feminine and stylish. A knee-length or longer skirt or dress is a casual and attractive look. Wear tights underneath, or hide socks inside the boots.


Dress your top half in a variety of different ways, but be sure you have several layers for a stylish look. Try a fitted tunic sweater over a T-shirt or a scoop-neck shirt. If it's warm enough, you could pair a long T-shirt over a tank top for sporty layers. Don't forget to pair a button-down blouse with a jacket or blazer -- this look never gets old.


Finish your ensemble with accessories. Add a belt around your waist if you're wearing a tunic sweater. Add a scarf if you're wearing a jacket or blazer. Don't forget a chunky necklace and earrings to pull your outfit together.
