The cooler season brings with it many pleasures, including hot cocoa with tiny marshmallows, sledding and snowman-building and, of course, comfy boots. Not only does wearing boots keep your feet and toes toasty warm, it also serves as an easy way to add style to your ensemble. You can pair boots with just about anything, including office-appropriate outfits, casual weekend ensembles and even dressier attire. Choosing the right boot for your outfit can make all the difference, though, so pick wisely.

Keep things comfy and ultra casual like actress Leighton Meester does on the set of "Gossip Girl." She's sporting Uggs, which can be expensive, but many shoe retailers sell similar styles for much less.

Studded -- or otherwise embellished -- boots add an innovative, offbeat vibe to an otherwise conventional pair of boots.

Open-Toe Ankle Boots

Painted toes get a cameo in these peek-a-boo ankle boots. The cut-out pattern of these booties works well for most evening ensembles. They are sexy and dressy, with a little edge. Choose open-toe ankle boots that flatter your toes; too much toe looks more like a sandal and too little looks like a mistake.

Fashion icon, reality TV star and mogul Kim Kardashian sports a pair of thigh-high leather boots with an animal-print top.

To make the most out of thigh-high boots, wear a shorter dress like Kardashian so they're completely visible.
