It’s officially boot season and I couldn’t be more excited for it. Boots are one of the things I look forward to wearing most in the fall because they can change the entire vibe of your outfits – either elevating it or dressing it down. Every year, new trends emerge while others take a backseat. With so many options, it can be tricky deciphering which styles are worth buying. You guys know that while I do love trends, it’s rare that I buy into every single one. So, I wanted to put together this guide to show you the best fall boots that you shouldn’t miss out on this season.

Over-the-knee boots are one of those shoe styles that come and go. However, I could never personally give them up. I love wearing them with anything from jeans to sweater dresses and mini skirts. They’re one of my fall wardrobe fixtures and I can’t foresee myself ever retiring them. That being said, OTK boots happen to be trending this season! Although I love my Stuart Weitzman boots, there are far more affordable options I linked below.
Knee High Boots
One of the trendier boot styles that I think is worth trying are knee-high boots. They come in an array of prints and patterns like snakeskin, croc-effect, and suede finishes. I’m a fan of this boot style because it’s a little more modest and easier to transition from the office to the weekend.

Most ankle boot styles aren’t as trendy this season; however, they look as classic as ever and remain relevant. A pointed-toe style or western-inspired bootie goes with everything. I love wearing mine with leggings or slightly cropped jeans for a polished effect.
Lug Sole Boots
Lug sole boots are probably the hottest style of the season. If you only invest in one pair, this should be it. They’re not only comfortable but practical for the cooler weather and provide way more support than any other style. I have a personal preference for combat and hiking boots. However, I do admit that chunky chelsea boots have their appeal.

White boots are still a staple this season, and they’re such a fresh alternative to your other neutral boots. I love using them to create monochromatic outfits – or to brighten up an entire look. They’re not always the most practical, but they bring on that winter chic factor like nothing else.
