Forget pumpkin spice. Boots are the real superstar of fall. And while good ones should last for years, there’s nothing more exciting than a brand new pair that’s totally on trend.
This season there are a lot of timeless styles in the spotlight, but combat, chelsea and western styles are hitting hard. Less practical but totally swoon-worthy, structured knee-high (and higher!) stunners and slouchy styles are hot and we have to admit, it makes us feel totally validated for holding onto those skinny jeans after all. And like everything else in current fashion, 90’s inspired styles are hot as well. As far as color, black obviously never goes out of style, but light neutrals (like taupe, sand and even white) make the case for stepping (see what I did there?) out of your comfort zone. And if you’re really feeling daring, metallics are having a moment. I’m not saying every occasion calls for wearing disco balls on your feet, but I’ve had these in my cart for the past six months and I tell you, I’ve mentally styled them with more outfits than I can count. (Maybe it’s finally time to check out, no?)
I live in Vermont which, admittedly, isn’t exactly a style mecca (I mean, the most fashion buzz we’ve ever gotten was for a pair of handmade mittens.) It is, however, boot season approximately nine months out of the year, so trust me when I tell you that I’ve owned more than my fair share. I’ve spent countless hours internet shopping for styles all across the spectrum and it truly would be a shame to let that hard work go to waste.
