My requirements: a softly pointed toe (super chic and modern), a flat square heel (to get the most mileage out of them), a short shaft (flattering for my short legs), and a matte leather finish (most versatile) — all for under $200 (courtesy of my college loans). While I searched for the perfectly chic boot, I daydreamed about all the outfits I could be pairing with them — too many to list, but I will share with you my three favorites. They include the best fitting, waxed skinnies I’ve ever found, a sweet floral dress, and culottes — the hottest trend from spring '14 runways in my humble opinion. Click through to discover my Chelsea boot finds plus three awesome outfits that you can style with them.
