6 Funky Boots You Need For Fall

6 Funky Boots You Need For Fall

By Anna Curtis

Temperatures are dropping super fast, and our closets need shoes that can stand the cold, just as much as we need coats and jackets. Though a classic pair of Chelsea boots might go with everything in your wardrobe, try to break out of your comfort zone this season because we have a roundup of fun boots you’ll want to buy ASAP.


The Flashy Boot

Whether it’s glitter, sequins, or jewels, everyone loves the dramatic statement these boots make. It’s the perfect shoe for a night out, or to spice up a tired outfit. One of the craziest pairs was seen on Yves St. Laurent’s runway this fall. But you can find ones that are a little more wearable at your favorite stores, like these cute glitter ankle boots from ASOS.


The Very High Boot

Sometimes called “legging boots,” this trend might be a little intimidating at first, but you’ll soon be hooked. No matter how tall you are, you can seamlessly pair these thigh highs with long coats, oversized sweaters, or even shorts to make your legs look miles long. At the Jeremy Scott show during NYFW, Karlie Kloss modeled daring, snakeskin thigh-highs for his spring 2018 collection. Try these inexpensive velvet alternatives in burgundy, from TJ Maxx.


The Combat Boot

Combat boots have always been a great go-to, but for this season, they’re more detailed and durable than ever. Dress them up for a girls night out or dress them down with jeans and a sweater. Either way you’ll find a reason to pair these with every outfit. The Row featured this bright white leather style on its runway this season, but you can come by eye-catching boots almost anywhere, like these deep blue velvet boots from Aldo.


The Statement Color Boot

Striking red or crisp white, solid-colored shoes are the centerpiece of any ensemble. These boots can be styled with vintage jeans, all black, or pretty much any outfit you love to wear. Countless designers incorporated this trend into their collections at NYFW this fall. Topshop‘s red leather ankle boots are a more affordable version you can instantly add to your closet.


The Cowboy Boot

Channel your inner Taylor Swift (circa 2006, of course) because there definitely seems to be a return of equestrian vibes this season. Whether they’re long or short, cowboy boots can put a spin on any classic outfit and catch attention with their intricate details. Take for example, these beautifully detailed cowboy boots by House of Holland, seen at London Fashion Week. Though they’re super cute, here’s a simpler alternative: brown leather ankle boots you can find at DSW.


The Sock Boot

One of the most unexpected trends this fall, are soft boots. All types of fabrics cover these boots, making them one of the most versatile styles. But the most popular is the sock boot—the stretchy material is so comfortable and ready-to-wear. A favorite is this grey, heeled boot from the Balenciaga show this fall. When you’re shopping for this trend, you’ll find so many options to match your personal style. We love these pink, velvet sock boots from Forever 21.
