If there’s one aesthetic I aspire to every winter—a look I’ll happily embrace each and every day—it’s all-neutral tones. In shades of caramel, beige, tan, and white, I long for the elegantly sophisticated feel that this narrow breadth of warm tones brings. In truth, there’s no color scheme that makes me feel more divine in my femininity or closer to Angelina Jolie. Contrasted with a pair of bright red lips, it helps me feel classically chic and incredibly powerful.

For that reason, my beige turtlenecks and neutral crepe pants were thrilled when I came across the resurfacing of tan boots for winter. There’s something incredibly sumptuous about finishing off a neutral outfit with tan boots—it brings the entire look together in a way black ankle boots could never hope to. If you, too, feel that neutrals are necessary and tan is to die for, shop the best tan-boot outfits below. (Nars’s semi-matte lipstick in Jungle Red is my go-to, in case you were wondering.)
