7 Boot Trends That We’re Living For This Fall

It’s officially fall, which means it’s time to start wearing some cute fall boots. There are always so many different styles to choose from, so to help you out, here are seven trends you can be sure will be in style this fall: 

1. Two-toned

There are many different ways to have two-toned boots, allowing you a lot of creative freedom in the style you choose. You can have anything from black riding boots with a strip of brown leather at the top to short booties split in half color wise to Chelsea style boots with a different colored heel. The most important thing is that the difference in colors adds a little pop to brighten up your fall style. Here are a few different choices we found the best-looking for this fall:

Ralph Lauren Merrie Riding Boot ($129.99)

This knee-high boot is perfect for rainy fall weather and its two-toned style means it will go with any outfit. The silver logo also adds bit of class to the look. 

Nisolo Chelsea Boot ($228)

A good Chelsea Boot is a fall staple. Nisolo’s version will help you stand out in the crowd, however, with its differently colored sole. 

2. Western

Cowboy boots and other Western-inspired looks have come back to the runway this season. No matter where you may be located, Western boots will always be a fantastic choice due to their versatility. Here are a few of our favorite stand-out looks this fall:

Free People Vegan Deliliah Western ($98)

This sparkly, red version from Free People is Western-influenced, but will stand out from the more traditional Cowboy boot, making it the perfect choice for those bold fashionistas. 

Aldo Veradia ($120)

This boho-chic boot perfectly blends the Western look with autumnal hues, making it the perfect choice for walking around in the fall while the leaves are changing. 

3. Plaid

Plaid is something that never seems to go out of style and plaid boots are no exception. Embrace the past with the many varieties of plaid – or even tartan – you can wear. These options are also great if you need some boots that you can wear to work. Here are two versions, one casual and one fancier, that are perfect for fall weather. 

Aldo Seiria ($130)

This silver-toed option is elegant and entirely work appropriate, yet it can also easily transition to being something great for a night out. 

Jane and the Shoe Jakob Combat Boot ($108.99)

Who knew plaid could look so casual? These boots are perfect for crunching fall leaves as you make your way around town. 

4. Metallic

Harking back to the ’80s, metallic boots are must-haves this fall season. No matter what color or level of shine you choose, they will always make a statement. In addition, because they are usually focused on more neutral colors (silver and gold), they are surprisingly versatile and are sure to go with basically any outfit. These are some of our top picks of the season: 

Aldo Mendani ($130)

This sleek look is perfect for those chill nights out when you want to look stylish, but don’t want to put too much effort into your look. 

Forever 21 Metallic Over-the-Knee Boots ($49.90)

Unlike the previous option, these boots really shine and are definitely statement pieces. You definitely don’t have to be worried about getting lost in the crowd with these on. 

5. Kitten Heels

One of the most versatile trends on this list, this low-to-the-ground heel style is perfect for anyone who puts comfort over style. Modest in silhouette, it can still pack a major punch depending on the style you choose. Here are two options we found appealing: 

Aldo Jerirewia ($130)

An update on the classic Chelsea look, this boot from Aldo would be the perfect addition to your wardrobe. It’s sleek, black look will make you fashionable no matter what you’re doing. 

Forever 21 Faux Suede Over-the-Knee Boots ($44.90)

For an over-the-knee look that’s still based around comfortable kitten heels, try this option from Forever 21. It’ll be easy to walk in while still perfect for a night out. 

6. Animal Print

Who can say no to animal print? There are so many fun things you can wear with various animal print boots, and they are perfect for adding some spice to an otherwise plain outfit. Here are some of our top options for this look:

Forever 21 Faux Suede Cheetah Print Booties ($28)

Combining two of this season’s trends into one boot, this option from Forever 21 is both comfortable, yet stylish. 

Diba Zora Bootie ($79.99)

Animal print is not just limited to cheetah or leopard print. Try something different, like this suede snake-skin look from DSW. 

7. Vintage Lace-up

There are plenty of different lace-up boots to choose from, but this fall be sure to focus on those reminiscent of Victorian-style heeled boots with laces. Whether a low or high heel, the important thing is that they come up a few inches past your ankle and feature laces as the main look. We loved these options from Free People and Aldo. 

Free People Joyce Lace Up Boot ($175)

Black and with a low heel, these boots are perfect for walking to class or around the city. They will also go with basically any outfit, making them a hit with us. 

Aldo Miassa ($120)

If you want a pair of boots with some flair, these are a great option. Red is a great fall color and will make any outfit pop. 

Any one of these seven trends will set you on the path to winning the fashion game this fall. Be creative and have fun mixing and matching different styles – who knows, maybe you’ll create your own trend!
