5 Boot Trends for Fall
10/2/2017 10:40:51 PM

One of the best things about cooler weather is breaking out the fall clothes and pairing cuddly sweaters with stylish boots for laid back, yet pulled together looks. And in 2017, boot lovers are in for a treat because this year is all about different styles of boots. From short to tall and everywhere in between, here are all the best fall boot trends to try. 

Ladylike lace ups
Victorian-inspired looks, including high collars and layers of lace, ruled this year’s runways, and one of the best things about the return of romantic street style is that tall, lace up boots are back as well. They’re best paired with skirts or worn with tucked-in skinny jeans to show off their signature laces. And one of the biggest perks of wearing Victorian-inspired boots is that the delicate lace-up detail means a pair of flats or a tiny kitten heel can look just as ladylike and elegant as a pair of sky-high stilettos.

Sock it to ‘em
This year, the 80’s sock boot has gotten a major update. Whether you prefer a skinny heel or a platform base, tightly fitted boots in stretchy fabrics were everywhere on fall 2017 runways. Designers usually paired calf-high sock boots with short skirts or cuffed jeans to really show them off. 

Chunky and funky
If you like a little more heft to your footwear, you’re in luck! Black, chunky boots are also on the radar for fall. Many of the season’s best black boots are calf or ankle-high with square, blocky heels. Combat styles, paired with fall’s military-inspired jackets or even long, floral-print dresses, are also making a comeback.  

Winter whites
If you thought white go-go boots died with disco, think again! This season’s most fashion-forward trendsetters are wearing white boots with short, chunky heels as a cute compliment to suits, skirts, and blazers. Most style influencers are choosing to let their white boots make a statement and keeping the rest of their outfits low-key in all black or other neutral colors. 

Long and leggy
This fall’s coolest leggings are actually . . . boots. Ultra-tall, slouchy over-the-knee boots in black, brown, or gray might be this fall’s most daring shoe trend. While high heeled, thigh-high boots certainly aren’t for everyone, they look youthful and fun when paired with short skirts and dresses, over skinny jeans, or layered on top of a pair of actual leggings.

Some footwear, like a comfortable pair of Chelsea boots or a soft, sturdy pair of riding boots, never goes out of style. However, it can be fun to try out the latest trends by picking up a pair of inexpensive fashion boots and seeing just how much a new pair of shoes can change up even the most tried and true fall fashions.
