Or you can keep it low key with combat boots. But you can go for ankle booties too, knee-high or even OTK boots. You can also add socks depending on your boots height. Under my booties, I wore ankle socks over my tights with my high heels. It kept my feet warm the whole day. Legwarmer is another great option. You can hide your boots or let them show.
