One of the first things I change from my wardrobe come fall is adding boots to my looks. It’s not only the shoe I wear the most throughout the cooler months, but it’s also the ideal shoe for transitioning summer looks into fall too. Fall boots are also usually the most practical. Whether you live in a snowy climate or wet climate, they’re kind of essential to getting to and from work or around town. For me, even though I live in Atlanta, I travel to the Northeast quite a bit throughout the year and personally own snow boots. And I wouldn’t dare not own a pair of rainboots!
To make sure you have all the boots you need for fall and winter check out the below list! These are the best fall boots for women!
Best Fall Boots For Women
Sexy Heeled Booties
These are a fun alternative to a pump for fall or winter. Stick to sleek lines and silhouettes. A sexy heeled bootie can work for the office to a dinner out with friends. I love them paired with little dresses and add tights for when it’s cooler out. But they’re also great with skinny jeans, or faux leather leggings.
I’d say a Chelsea boot is one of the most classic boots of them all. A must-have for your wardrobe. This type of boot is defined as a flat bootie that you slide on thanks to the elastic on the sides. They’re great with dresses or jeans. PS my favorite ways to style Chelsea boots here.
Knee High Boots
A few other styles to consider that go above the ankle are knee-high boots (like riding boots or high-heeled knee-high boots) and even over the knee boots. These can be worn over jeans (keeps you super warm in the winter) or with dresses and skirts. I always love a knee-high with tights and a nice dress or skirt. Such a feminine look for winter.
Western Style Boots
One major boot trend we’re seeing in 2022 is the cowboy style boot. Whether you go knee high and tuck in your jeans or wear them with a dress, or choose an ankle version, there are tons of options. I’ll admit I was initially against this western boot trend when it slowly grew in popularity last year, but I’m now 100% in. To avoid looking like an actual cowgirl, avoid too many additional western vibes in your look.
Animal Print Boot
A great trendy boot to try is an animal print one. Whether you like leopard, cheetah or even snakeskin (which I’ve been very into this season) these truly act as a neutral. I recommend keeping your prints to a more neutral tone so you can get the most wear out of them.
With the shifting denim trends to a more relaxed fit, a sock bootie is essential right now. These are more fitted to the body and go up the shaft a bit higher than an ankle bootie. These sock booties allow you to wear all that denim with a bootie which is a new challenge for us Millennials to figure out! You can also see more ways to style this trend here. And these under $40 sock booties from Target, are a personal favorite!
Block Heel Bootie
The ones I wear the most often, a fun block heel bootie. They’re comfy, just enough height and easily dress-up lots of looks. They’re a great swap for sneakers or flats.
Sure you can totally wear a rainboot, but these Blondo Waterproof booties are seriously SO cute and functional. They look nothing like a boring waterproof boot and go great with jeans and dresses. There’s no need to be wearing a duck bootie (those popular LL Bean boots) when these are fashionable and waterproof. These are my go-to when it’s gross and rainy out and I don’t want to deal with the weather. They’re fashion forward, comfortable and don’t look like waterproof boots.
If you don’t experience any snow where you live, you can 100% skip this boot. But if you travel to places often that do get snow, I recommend at least buying one pair to have that goes with a lot of things. I love these that I got a few years ago from Abercrombie. I recommend a Sorel boot that can double as a waterproof boot too. Plus, grab them on sale if you only need them 1 or 2 times a year.
