Heavily associated with British Rock ‘N’ Roll legends (think The Beatles and Mick Jagger), the Chelsea boot has endured throughout the decades to become an effortlessly sleek autumn staple. This season, swap out the traditional black leather for elevated materials like colorful patent, checks, and mock croc.
TO THE KNEE
Fall and knee-high boots go hand and hand and this trending silhouette is a fashion favorite thanks to its outfit versatility. Pair with midi and mini skirts to amp up the proportion play or try slim jeans tucked into printed or embellished styles.
ALL LACED UP
There’s plenty of lace-up options to work into your rotation this fall, ranging from feminine Victorian era-inspired silhouettes to combat boots. Pointed toe ankle booties add a touch of elegance while the latter, sturdier shapes add edge.
Sky-high platform boots have made a comeback as evidenced by their appearance on the FW19 runways, and for good reason. With extra height, chunky heels elongate the legs and bring a revamped, retro vibe to any look.
The Cuban heel is synonymous with Western-inspired styles and the boot shape continues to be a mainstay in designer collections from Saint Laurent to R13. Rather than a full tall cowboy boot this season, zip up a heeled bootie version that’ll go well with everything from leather pants to floral frocks.
