Ladies, it’s that time again: the beginning of a new fashion year. It’s no secret that September is the most important month in the fashion world; it’s when fashion followers are introduced to upcoming trends. Boots are one of the most crucial aspects of fall dressing, and finding the right pair (or two or three) is a great place to start revamping your wardrobe for the changing season.
1. Riding boots
Equestrian-style boots have been a staple piece for years and they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon, so make sure you invest in a quality pair that will last you season after season. This gorgeous patent leather pair by McQ Alexander McQueen (available at Net-A-Porter) is a great option.
2. Ankle boots
It’s been a few short years since their explosion onto the fashion scene, and stiletto ankle boots have become an absolute must-have in every woman’s wardrobe. They’re so versatile that you can pair them with a pencil skirt for the office or an LBD for a night of drinks and dancing. Bonus: ankle boots are more comfortable and stable than pumps or strappy sandals, so your feet will thank you for investing in a pair, like these ones by Giuseppe Zanotti (available at Shoebox).
3. Motorcycle boots
There’s nothing like motorcycle boots to add an instant cool factor to an outfit. Finding the perfect rugged pair can be quite the challenge, but once you do, you’ll never look back. This style from Spring is a stunning (and affordable!) option.
Take a cue from boho-chic star Tori Spelling, who always looks stylish on Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood and pair casual boots with a fun printed dress. The result is super-trendy without trying too hard. This pair from Aldo does the trick.
5. Animal print
There’s no better way to ring in fall and simultaneously add an instant touch of glamour to your wardrobe than with animal-print accessories. Pair these Jeffrey Campbell boots (available at Solestruck) with an all-black ensemble for an effortlessly chic look.
