The White Bootie

Investing in a pair of white shoes can be a bit intimidating, but it shouldn’t be. You may think that white will be hard to wear, especially in the fall, but a cute pair of white fall boot will go well with most outfits. Pair them with cuffed boyfriend jeans or wear them with an all-black outfit and you’ll be sure to make a statement. Invest in these Vince Camuto Britsy gored booties, in white, for added height and a polished look with its pointed toe.

The Sock Bootie

Thank you, Yeezy for introducing the sock ankle boot trend. The silhouette of these boots is nothing but flattering. The shaft of a sock bootie is longer than your average bootie and the material is fitted around the ankle (like a sock, duh). Also, bonus points for the lengthening effects due to its slim fit. These are perfect to elevate any simple outfit to a more chic look. Also, they look incredible with short dresses! Add Topshop’s May Sock Bootie to your fall shopping list for a stylish and comfortable pair. These shoes are perfect addition to the fall boot trends this year, and definitely a fan favorite!

The Combat Boot

Dare to be edgy this fall with combat boots. Believe it or not, these will look great with everything from leggings, jeans, to dresses. Juxtapose the utilitarian look of a combat fall boot with a cute floral dress or be motorcycle-chic with an all-black outfit and your favorite leather jacket. These boots are versatile and perfect for trekking through the snow. The Veronica Short Slouchy Boot by Frye will be your best friend this fall and winter. It’s soft supple leather will keep you comfortable throughout the chilly months ahead.

The Sparkly Boot

Everyone in fashion is talking about the Saint Laurent Niki Crystal Boot that was spotted during Paris Fashion Week. At the price point of $10,000, they are a bit pricey, but we’ll opt for Jessica Simpson’s Layzer Slouchy Rhinestone Boots. These boots are stunning due to the slouchy styling, pointed heel, and of course the twinkling rhinestones. They may be somewhat flashy, but they are totally appropriate for holiday parties and to dress up the little black dresses that you love. Talk about a major statement piece!
