Nothing excites me more for the upcoming Fall/Winter season than a great pair of boots. Thankfully for us footwear obsessed fashionistas, designers this season are pulling out all the stops. From military inspired to sexy lace-ups, ankle booties to over-the-knee, the perfect transition from the dog days of summer into the blistery cold months of winter is to sink your toes into this season’s must haves.
Fall Boot Trend One
A Heroine in Footwear: The ankle bootie. It’s part shoe, part boot and part well, frankly, superpower. It can dress up or dress down any outfit and can be worn with a sexy dress, skinny jeans, a mini skirt or simply under leggings. Versatile, sexy and sophisticated, the hybrid shoe boot this season is definitely your new superhero. Cape not included.
Fall Boot Trend Two
The Bee’s Knees: It’s no wonder why the return of the over-the-knee boot is welcomed back with open arms. Last season, it was a trend that could transform the ordinary go-to outfit into extraordinary by simply slipping on these outrageously sexy and chic boots. This time around, designers were careful not to repeat the exact same styling of last Fall season, so they updated the new “it” boots by playing with height, texture and details. Whatever style of the OTK boot you choose this season, just make sure to include these in your repertoire and you’ll be more than happy with the results.
Fall Boot Trend Three
Luck be a Lady: Designers have a sweet spot for us fashionistas; and nothing says it more than the intricate attention to detail they assumed when designing the A/W collections. This season’s boot has turned into the ultimate ladylike accessory. Details like lace, velvet, rosettes, ribbons, bows, floral printing and sexy cutouts pay tribute to decades of feminine styling by capturing the essence of female sex appeal and ladylike grace. Looks like the odds are in our favor.
Fall Boot Trend Four
A Masculine Overhaul: The lines have been blurred, the laces have been tied and heels have been stripped. Designs that used to be strictly for men have sunk its teeth into women’s boots come Fall. The lace up workman’s boot and motorcycle boot reigned supreme on the runway. If you’re daring enough to try a slightly more androgynous look, these flat boots will certainly keep you stylish and chic. Don’t like the overtly masculine look? Opt for a more feminine touch with a sky high stiletto.
Fall Boot Trend Five
All Laced-up and Nowhere to go?: In the old days, a lace-up boot was tucked safely under a billowing layered skirt, never to be seen. It’s hard to believe anyone would want to hide a sexy silhouette, beloved Victorian, vintage vibe accompanied with a ladylike heel. So, designers this season decided to revive a once forgotten favorite and made it one of the hottest trends for Fall. Gone are the days of concealing footwear, flaunt those lace boots all over town and you’ll quickly be the envy of every fashionista out there.
Fall Boot Trend Six
Bring out your Inner Animal: The concentration this season seems to be defining the details in boots that curb your animal cravings: fur-lined boots, pony hair detail, shearling trim, rabbit fur and goat hair fringe all inject a certain sexy bohemian style while keeping you warm during the blistery winter months. It’s officially time to unleash your inner animal instinct.
