When summer begins fading into fall and hot days are replaced with the crisp, cool ones, fashion choices get to be adjusted—and inevitably, one of the most exciting is breaking out fall boots.
Boots just have a quality about them that sparks more joy than any other footwear. Be it the fact that their arrival signals the best season of the year or their ability to be the focal point of any outfit you wear, boots are the it-girl of footwear. Other shoes can try to be as influential, but we hate to tell ’em, they probably won’t succeed.
Fall 2023’s boots are here for us to lust over, and it’s no surprise that they have us ready to toss our shorts aside and welcome the beginning of fall with wide-open arms. Boot season, it’s your time to shine.
No matter what trends come and go, a timeless bootie always has a spot in our wardrobes. From a classic black bootie that’s a true wardrobe staple to a suede one in a perfect shade of camel, a classic bootie will never go out of style. This season has updated versions of your go-to that’ll prove to be worth the investment.
Over the past year or so, cowboy boots have proven to be the cool-girl style staple that belong in your arsenal far beyond reasons of country concerts. A Western boot will add a touch of modern coolness to your outfit that puts them in the running for the shoe of 2023. Whether you’re brave enough to opt for a literal cowboy boot or would prefer a more subtle take with a pair of booties that incorporate Western details, you can find a pair that’ll be a seamless addition to your fall wardrobe.
Footwear has gotten a whole lot… chunkier in recent seasons, and boots are no exception. Chunky, lug soles and platforms have claimed a permanent spot on the bottoms of boots, and they make for an easily walkable, edgy footwear option that’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Knee-high boots are a trend we’re happy to see back, and you can expect to see them everywhere the instant the temperatures drop. They’re ready to stomp their chic selves off the runways and into our closets, and they’re planning to win over our hearts this season by providing us with endless versatility. I for one can’t wait to wear my midi dresses with a pair and call it a (very good outfit) day.
If you’re a living, breathing being on Earth, you probably know that UGGs are back—and boy, are they back. Last year, the Ultra Mini and Tazz styles sold out before September and were impossible to get throughout the entire season. The good news? They’re still available now–but not for much longer.
