It’s All About The Boots: 5 Must-Have Styles For Fall

Okay, first things first— Shoutout to BCBGMAXAZRIA for the sleek design and comfort of the “Gian” Peep-toe Wedge Tall Boot. These boots are seriously killer— I CANNOT stop wearing them, and receive multiple compliments every time I do. Not only are they on trend, but they’re comfortable, which allows me to wear them all day without restraints (and I’m all about that).

Second, I’m always cold— even when it’s seventy degrees— So I absolutely love boots and own more pairs than I’ll probably ever show you in this lifetime.

Since Fall is a season of transition from Summer to Winter, I look for boots with features that provide comfort throughout changing temperatures. For example: a peep-toe or loose fitting mid-calf boot for the purpose of airflow, or an ankle boot for the purpose of less material vs. a tall boot. It’s important to incorporate a mixture of styles and features within any wardrobe, because each style plays such a different role. Leather and suede are my go-to material since they’re usually long-lasting and durable. However, I like to mix it up with fun materials like lace and sequins, or add edge to my look with studs too.

The Five Must-Have Boot Styles for Fall, My Favorite Pairs:

#1. Peep-Toe



#2. Ankle


#3. Mid-Calf


#4. Over-the-Knee

#5. Thigh-High

SHOPPING TIP: Quality over quantity. If a single pair of boots can be styled multiple ways, it’s a long-term wardrobe investment. Therefore, as far as price, it’s worth it to splurge.

In my opinion, having one pair of solid boots I love and can wear over again vs. multiple pairs I might wear once or twice, is better.

    I was desperate for a pair of velvet knee high {with heel} boots last Christmas. Everything was either flat or over the knee. Stuart Weitzman was close but everything except knee with heel. Are we over velvet this winter??

      Hi Dawn,
      Since velvet tends to be more a of a seasonal look— usually exploding with styles close to the end of the year and Holiday Season— it tends to disappear after the new year, but always returns. Materials with a shine (i.e. metallics, silk, sequins, etc.) are on-trend for Fall, so I expect to see quite a few velvet options as far as footwear. Keep a lookout at Nordstrom, ALDO, and DSW starting this month, and return with additional questions— Good Luck !!

      Krystal, xx.
