Love your Look | 3 boot styles every woman needs in 2019

Boot season has arrived.

We want you to love your look, but getting dressed can be hard work. . In January, that can be even harder. It's cold, dark, after dreary around Northeast Ohio. 

What can cheer a fashion-conscious Clevelander up? It's also boot season. 😊😊😍😍

WKYC’s Sara Shookman teamed up with Hallie Abrams of The Wardrobe Consultant to find the three essential boots for 2019. Hallie is a native Clevelander, and a stylist for real people in real life. She knows trends and how to best incorporate them around the CLE. You can find out more about her here. She took us to Nordstrom at Beachwood Place to keep us current for around $100 a pair.

 The Wardrobe Consultant's Three Boots every woman needs in 2019:

 1. The Sock Bootie

Hallie says current trends are all about playing with proportions. While a sock bootie doesn't have to be fabric, it must hug your ankle to create a great line with cropped pants or skirts and dresses. No cankles here!

3. The OTK (Over-The-Knee)  boot

Over-the-knee boots can be intimidating, but they don't have to be. Hallie showed us how the right style can be comfortable, but add a fresh edge to a jeans and sweater look. Again, it's all about proportion.
