Q. Help! I just moved to a cold climate and can no longer wear ballet flats with my boyfriend jeans. I have seen celebs, such as Rachel Bilson, wear boots with boyfriends and it looks good.. How do you do this? Do they have to have a heel? I would prefer a low heel or flat. Also, can you recommend any that are less than $150?
A. It can be somewhat tricky to pull off a boyfriend jean with boots, but it definitely can be done. An ankle boot with a heel is the easiest style to wear, however, a flat combat-style or rugged boot also looks great (see Jennifer Aniston, below). If your cuffs hit above the top of your ankle boot, add some wooly socks for warmth (and style).
