The Boots You Need in Your Closet for Fall 2019

It’s officially fall — both according to the calendar and the weather, for once — which means our sandals are packed away and the only shoe with a chance of touching our feet are boots.

If you haven’t started preparing yourself for fall, it’s time to do what you need to do to get excited for it. Light a fall-scented candle, eat a slice of pumpkin bread, roll around in a pile of leaves — whatever makes you excited for the official change of seasons and the welcoming of the chillier months. My personal choice? Transitioning my closet and wrapping myself in head-to-toe corduroy, wool, and leather.

The most coveted part of a fall wardrobe — in my humble opinion — is the shoes; in particular, boots. There’s nothing like pulling my box of boots out of the attic after a long, hot summer and saying hello to my old suede- and leather-clad friends. From slouchy boots your mom wore in the ’70s to styles straight out of a Western, this season’s boot trends are anything but boring — these are our favorites pieces, complete with inspiration on how to style them.
