I foremost need to buy winter boots and a winter coat. I was looking at these: http://www.bluefly.com/Cole-Haan-dar...801/detail.fly http://www.bluefly.com/Cockpit-charc...201/detail.fly What do you think of those? I will be wearing both nearly every day. Will they match together? Are they versatile? Also, if those are good choices, what clothes would match well with them? I think I would like to get some jeans, cords, flannels, and then some button-down shirts and maybe a cashmere sweater. I currently have ZERO nice clothes, so I am pretty much starting from scratch. I dress almost solely casual, I am still a high school student. Thanks in advance. EDIT: Some additional info. I'm about 5'10" and 120 lbs, so I am very lean.

it depends, that also depends, um ... well, that depends. usually solid colors (nothing hot pink), okay great. from scratch is often the best place, and you are welcome.

I hope this isn't an entirely smart-ass forum.

If you need me to clear anything up, please ask. I have zero style talent.

I'm starting from scratch, and it's winter. I already have shitty cheap clothes, and my first priority is function (meaning staying warm and dry for winter). Meaning boots and a coat.

And I'm not rich.

Hi, did you see this? Or did you think this was a self help forum?
