Over-the-knee boots are a hot option for fall this year. They’re a really versatile shoe because you can wear them with your favorite pair of leggings and jeans or with a snug sweater dress. Whether you want to rock them at fall football games or to class, they’re a great go-to option to complete your outfit.

2. Wedge bootie

Splurge:


Little wedge booties are perfect for going out in cool fall weather. When the temperature really starts to drop at night, sandals and wedges become less practical, which is where wedged booties come in! They keep your toes warm while still dressing up your outfit. Pair them with some killer faux-leather leggings and get ready to party the night away.

3. Riding boots

Combat boots are also a collegiette wardrobe essential because you can also take them from day to night. Have a class on a Thursday or Friday night and need to go straight to a party or to dinner with a friend afterwards? Wear your combat boots; they’re a great option for class and a basement frat party. If any boots can handle the wear and tear of a house party, these can. You can wear these with black pants or jeans and a pretty top to a party, or you can wear them with a cozy sweater and a scarf to class to soften up the look.



With these styles in your wardrobe, you’ll be the most fashionable collegiette on campus this fall!
