Fall is all about footwear. You can be like most people and think of fall as a pre-winter, preparing you for snow shoveling and protecting your feet from the blistering cold. Or, you could view it as the one season where it’s socially acceptable to drink pumpkin spice lattes on the daily and amp up your looks by wearing one of the most comfortable yet stylish pieces of footwear: boots. Boot season is finally here and we are more than ready. Here are five different styles of boots that will be the perfect finishing touch to any pumpkin spice latte and sweater combo, keeping your mind off of the cold that is yet to come and more focused on how you are killing the fall fashion game.
The Ankle Booties
Ankle booties are the perfect go to shoes for fall. They are easy to slip on, comfortable, and completely on trend. These booties are paired perfectly with jeans, leggings, and even flowing midi dresses. Wear heeled ankle booties to spice up your outfit on a night out, or flat ones when you’re going apple picking. Ankle booties are completely versatile and come in a variety of styles, making them the perfect pair for a multitude of different outfits and styles.
These booties are the go to shoes for fall.
The Over The Knees
Remember when wearing over the knee boots was seen as promiscuous and not socially acceptable? Neither do I, because that was so so long ago. It’s 2017 and over the knee boots have been the it statement piece to almost every outfit imaginable. A little black dress? Pair it with over the knee black heeled boots and take an outfit almost everyone has and elevate it. Jeans and sweater? Match it with a pair of suede over the knees for a more fashion forward look that just screams fall. Not a fan of heels? Many over the knee boots are also completely flat, providing comfort without sacrificing style. Shirt dresses and over sized sweaters? Over the knee boots are perfect for covering up most of your legs and leaving you warm, but showing just a tiny bit of skin to keep the look together. Not to mention these boots give you legs for days!
The Riding Boots
News flash! You don’t need to know how to ride a horse to rock riding boots, and not all boots need to have heels! Not only are these boots super comfortable, they also look great paired with a giant knit scarf and a vest. Riding boots can be worn over jeans and corduroys, and even paired with leggings, sweaters, or a poncho for a more classic casual-chic oriented look. The contrast of the texture of leather boots from denim and other materials makes the look a little more complex and lets people know that you totally are in control of your style and know exactly how to match perfect pairs.
The Metallic Boots
Want to step a little outside of your comfort zone? This fall is all about bold looks, and the look that has taken the fashion world by storm is the metallic bootie. Exciting enough to get a few head turns, but safe enough to wear to the office, metallic booties are really having their moment. Dress up an all black outfit with a pair of silver booties, or add a sparkly pair to your sweater and jean combo for a festive vibe. Easy to style and guaranteed to steal the show, metallic booties are a great addition to any wardrobe.
