Boots just might be the most exciting thing to happen to fall, ever. Sure fall has many other incredible offerings but boots, boots are magical. Not only are they stylish but they are much for comfortable than say a strappy summer sandal. It’s easy to get swept up in the new season shopping hype, which can often result in buying all of the boots. Even with me being a huge shoe lover, I would hate to see anyone break the bank and go over budget. So I’ve narrowed things down a bit and have chosen four must-have boot styles that you need this fall.
Don’t think that you have to be a rebel or hang out in a biker bar to rock a moto boot. Sure motorcycle boots can give edgy girls even more edge, but they can also toughen up even the most feminine of dress without looking ridiculous. Yes, sometimes girly-girls need a bit of grit in their wardrobes too.
Over-the-knee and thigh-high boots are the ultimate statement shoe and they keep your legs warm! Don’t think you have to be some vampy-vixen to rock these boots either. A flat pair of extra tall boots are stylish and very appropriate for more casual occasions.
What would I do without a pair (or five) of kicky little ankle boots. Ankle boots add instant cool to dresses and skirts (Olivia Palermo is the queen of this look) and are a chic alternative to sneakers for the days when you just feel like hanging out in a pair of jeans.
If sophistication is your game, then riding boots need to be in your closet. These boots are timeless classics so make the investment and get a pair that will last you a lifetime. If you want to see riding boots done right, look to Kate Middleton for inspiration – she rocks a riding boot like a champ.
