Looking for an alternative from those classic and comfy Ugg boots to wear during the winter season? Make a stylish and smart investment in jockey (also known as Rider) or biker style boots. The jockey boots are more simple, smooth, and sophisticated, while the biker boots have an edgy twist with straps and buckles. Both are tall, leather, and perfect for cold weather. Withstand wind, rain, and snow while looking fabulous in these!

How to wear: These boots are casual, so not too much effort needs to be put into an outfit including these shoes. They can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings; a pair of bottoms no bigger than those will be able to fit inside the boot. Jeans should definitely not be worn outside the boot; you won't be able to see the detailing that makes the shoe hot!
Where to wear: You can wear these anywhere from the classroom to a low key party, depending on the upper half of the outfit. However, don't step your well dressed foot in the club with these boots...
Where to buy: Steve Madden has a nice collection in their boot section. Tory Burch has a great selection of Jockey/Rider boots, but they are on the pricier side. Jessica Simpson has a good collection of reasonably priced Jockey and Rider boots. Buy them while you can, these trendy items are selling out fast!
I got these Tory Burch Jockeys as a little X mas gift. I wore them for the first day of classes after break. I wore it with a casual boyfriend button up that I belted and cotton leggings from Express.
