They add a bit of 'attitude' to almost any outfit. Just be careful to avoid the "trashy" and go for the "classy"...personally, I would stick to the suede and leather variety, the pvc's...well...let's just say they're not for me!

These Topshop brown suede thigh high boots would be perfect with a long cozy sweater and at $180 they fit into the budget much better!
