The leaves are starting to change, and the air is beginning to feel crisper. Fall is coming, and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s time to put away the tanks and shorts and pull out the turtlenecks and sweaters. Even better, we can finally whip out those boots we’ve been waiting to wear all year. Boots are a staple during the fall season. You can’t do fall fashion right if you don’t have at least one pair of boots. Besides, we’ve spent all last year living it up in sneakers and slippers. It’s about time for a change.
Even if you already have a pair of boots, you can never have too many pairs of shoes. If you’re looking for new boot trends to follow this year, then don’t worry; we got you covered. We compiled a list of notable boot trends to watch out for this fall season. Here are 6 boot trends to definitely keep on your shoe radar.
Yee-haw! Country has entered the chat and deemed cowboy boots a shoe needed for this season. Don’t get too stuck on a traditional western look, though. Remember to implement trends into your personal style. Play around with different colors, textures, and shapes. From a midi dress to pleated shorts, you can style it with anything.
Chunky soles have been around for a few seasons now, and they are not going away anytime soon. From the iconic to the chic Chelsea boots, if there is one boot trend to follow, it’s the chunky sole. Whether you are looking for knee-high length or at the ankles, a chunky sole forever looks cool and stylish.
If you’re looking for something sleek and professional, then look no further. Pointed toe boots are a perfect balance between stepping up from an outdated rounded toe but not wanting to go too edgy with the squared toe. Style it with a pair of trousers and a long trench coat for that perfect fashionable look.
Don’t count out the classics like a knee-high boot. It’s a staple that can go with anything. For this season, the trend goes a bit further with a bold statement. I’m talking about bold colors, patterns, and various textures. Switch out your black knee-highs for a blue snakeskin instead. We’ve spent all year locked in, so it’s time to stand out.
If you like knee-high boots, then you should love over-the-knee boots. The silhouette is sleek, polished, and form-fitting, typically hitting the mid-thigh range. You can pair it with a cute pair of shorts to keep it casual or style it with a mini dress to add some spice. Regardless, over-the-knee boots are a must-have shoe to invest in this season. So go ahead and shop away!
The 2000s called, and they want their platform boots back. Unfortunately, we love them too much to give them away. Platform boots are easily one of the biggest trends this season that you don’t want to miss out on. To keep in line with the Y2K fashion, you can pair them with a mini skirt and baby tee. Or you can try something different with a maxi skirt or babydoll dress. Regardless of how you style them, you can’t really go wrong.
