Nothing complements a fall wardrobe better than a good old pair of worn-in boots. Whether you prefer a grungy combat, a sleek patent pull-on, bohemian knee-high lace-ups, or a studded cowgirl, there is something out there for everyone.
Today’s most popular boot is low-heeled, practical, a bit tough, and easy to transition from outfit to outfit. For example, the black leather combats that hit at the ankle aren’t only reserved for the die-hard rock fans; the All-American girl can also wear them, with skinny distressed denim, a plaid blouse, and woolly knits, for a cozy countryside look.
Throw this same pair on with a pretty baby doll dress, and you’ve got yourself a girly grunge look Courtney Love would be proud of. Pair it with boyfriend shorts, ripped tights, and a raggedy beanie, and you’ve recreated the famous Alexander Wang F/W 2008 uniform that not even the fashion editors have gotten out of their heads yet.
With all the different lengths of skirts showcased at the fall shows, there is no particular style that any type of boot can’t work with. Let a pair of granny lace-ups with fringed tips peek out from under a long maxi skirt, or showcase them in all their glory with a kitschy mini dress. The possibilities are endless, so choose your favorite low-heeled boot and let them do the talking (and the walking).
