Cheap and Cheerful is a weekly column that highlights the chicest inexpensive finds. Because nothing’s more satisfying than looking good while spending less.
It’s that time of year when it’s finally cold enough for boots. While you probably have a pair of go-to black ones, do you feel excited to wear them? If the answer is, meh, then it’s time to have a little fun and try something colorful. They might seem a little too flashy at first but take baby steps — wear them with jeans and a cozy dark sweater before graduating to skirts and dresses. You’ll find that they make everything look a little snappier and cooler — even if it’s the same old clothes you’ve worn to death. And the best part? They’re all $200 or way less so you don’t have to spend a lot to test out the trend.
