It always feels good at the start of the Fall season to pull out the boots again. I forget how they can add that instant dose of cool to any outfit and the style options are endless. Over-the-knee? Short or cut-out? Cowboy style or maybe snow read? Whatever your poison is in the boot department we can all agree that they are necessities to the season and aid in turning some of those more summery pieces into a fall-ready vibe. Or, if you’re in the snow, they quite literally get you from A to B.
And because boots have been on my mind I teamed up with Shoes.com to bring you a guide of sorts, to help you navigate the options out there. Best of all, this amazing source will give you the editorial looks you want while not breaking the bank—not that I’m against that as you all know, ha.
Because I’m a California girl (still waiting for those cooler days here!) I’ve been relying on a short boot (Franco Sarto Richland boots shown here two ways) that I pair with dresses and jeans. I like how they’re simple and understated with a contemporary shape on the side. And bonus, they’re only $128!
Whether you’re looking to dress the part or actually need something that can withstand the elements, here are some sturdy stompers to get you through the coldest months.
They’re great for rain, but also gardening too! I always opt for more simple styles and solid colors—fingers crossed some California rain.
