Which New Fall Boot Trend Are You?
It's the season of change, which means switching up your fall boot rotation is also in order. Fall, after all, is when your booties are on full display — when they can still be paired with shorter hemlines, aren't yet shrouded by winter layers, and don't quite need to be equipped to deal with inclement weather. All that's to say: It's time to have some fun with your footwear, by way of these six irresistible fall boot trends. There's one for every style.
Break up your all-black boot collection with a simple brown seam that updates these classic Chelsea boots for a fresher fall.
A friendly alternative to the chunky black book: the chunky, chocolate brown boot.
An added block heel makes these lugged-sole Chelseas an option for both day and night this season.
TikTok has spoken, and these boots are reigning supreme as an affordable way to test out the cowboy boot trend.
Steve Madden West Boots ($200)
Be quick if you want to scoop up this sleek style — TikTokers have their eyes on where to snag the best cowboy boots.
Schutz Allison Leather Boot ($168)
For an elevated approach to the western style, we're partial to this pair's clean lines and buttery smooth leather.
This modern silhouette pairs a square toe with a flat heel, making these shoes look decidedly more expensive than they are.
Franco Sarto Waxton Bootie ($149)
Take your pick from fall hues beyond black and brown, made just as wearable for day and night by this squared-off Chelsea bootie style.
With an added angular heel, these basic booties become especially chic.
Ganni has managed to make rubber wellies something we want to wear again thanks to the lug sole and playfully curated range of colors.
UO Brody Boot ($89)
Contrast rubber soles give the formerly chunky combat boot a sportier, more approachable aesthetic.
An added bonus of rain boot-inspired soles is the unexpected pop of color they can add to your fall fit.
Adding a chunky chain to your already-chunky Chelsea is like wearing two accessories in one for a fall night out.
In lieu of laces, these cool combat boots sport rebellious chain details to toughen up your floral fall dresses.
A little bit preppy and a little bit edgy, these booties perfectly demonstrate the versatile nature of the chained-up trend.
Sam Edelman Larina Tall Boot ($250)
Just like our denim, knee-high boots are loosening up in preference of straight and wide-calf styles. You'll be surprised at how well these pair with summer's mini dresses for a transitional fit.
Jeffrey Campbell Tanked Boot ($240)
Up the ante of your entire fall wardrobe with a heavy-duty pair of knee-high lug sole boots.
Mango Leather Boots ($140)
It doesn't get cooler than this mid-shaft style this season. A lighter leather will compliment all your fall knitwear.
