THE 6 FALL BOOT TRENDS YOU SHOULD SHOP NOW

Now that fall is officially here, it’s prime boot-shopping time and we definitely don’t want you to do it alone. The stirring excitement of sweater weather also brings the knitwear staple’s obvious sidekick: a favorite pair of boots. For Fall 2021, the boot trends are abundant — and sometimes overwhelming — so we’ve picked our top six that you absolutely can’t miss for the cool-weather season.

The runways offered up a host of boot styles that ranged from full-on statement to minimal, and they’re all vying for a place in your fall shoe closet. Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander, and Peter Do made a case for metallic boots while Celine, Isabel Marant, and Acne Studios brought westernwear to the forefront. Other unexpected boot trends have started to come into the mix, as well, including kitten heels, wellies, lug sole, and slouchy boots.

Celebs are already showing off their stylish boot supply in the recent days, like a lug-sole boot look from Gigi Hadid at Paris Fashion Week and a slouchy boot on Khloe Kardashian in Los Angeles. Whether timeless, trendy, or both, boots are a worthy beginning-of-the-season investment that require your utmost care and attention.

FALL 2021 BOOTS TREND NO. 3: WELLIE BOOTS

The function of the Wellington boot is unmatched for winter weather. Designers like Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, and Stella McCartney are sending luxury versions of these glorified rain boots down the runway. Opt for a neutral heeled pair, like those from Chloé or a fun contrast sole like the Gia Borghini pair.
