European Style: Tall for Fall - Leather Boots

While I wouldn't say the Netherlands is the trend capital of the world, there are definitely some style trends the Dutch Ladies rock out well.  One is the tall boot.

If you haven't noticed from my other posts it rains a lot in Holland.  A whole heck of a lot.

So in addition to dressing with style one must really take practicality into account (I'm talking style beyond my bright red Goretex rain jacket - I may never remedy that style no-no while in Holland, it's too wet and unpredictable here).

One way to style up a cold rainy day is through wearing high leather boots - and they are not scarce on the Dutch streets.

The Dutch Women wear tall boots in every color or style you could imagine and in every season.

Why - because they are practical and oh so cute.

They can dress up casual jeans or leggins outfit

Dress down a cute skirt or dress.

(I am loving the leg warmers under this pair)

They provide warmth on chilly fall or winter days.

Most importantly, they keep your feet dry! Leather is amazing like that.

I have a go to pair of Steve Madden Frannk Riding boots in black and brown that I sport almost daily as the warmish summer turn into cool fall days.

I need to add to my collection - I'm thinking a grey pair - and there are definetly some new fall styles I am really loving.

The go-to Steve Maddens with a wedge for a dressier look.

This Frey Paige boot is a great take on the classic rider

These over the knee grey Dolce Vita boots are also great.

Or maybe this Fergie Limit boot from Nordstrom with a cute heel.
What tall boots are you feigning over to keep your feet warm this fall?
