Let me start by saying you don’t “need” all of these boots.
But, having the “right” shoe on hand makes creating outfits and getting dressed quick and easy.
And this fall, there is a nice array of options, from classic and timeless, to fun and trendy.
To make it easy, I rounded up the 6 best women’s boots for fall so you have them in one place.
Many of these will look familiar since we have used them over the last several weeks in outfit posts, and there are two new styles to consider.
Remember, I recommend these items specifically, but you can also you this list as inspiration and find similar styles at different price points or that serve your specific needs.
AND look in your closet first! You might have some of these already.
The 6 Best Women’s Boots for Fall
Sock Bootie, $265
My personal must have for the fall is the sock bootie.
A sock bootie is an ankle boot with a soft upper that is tight around your foot and ankle – like a sock.
Style-wise, I really appreciate a clean boot with a slim profile that extends your leg, creating a long lean line. And this season, it works with a ton of different bottoms.
They fit beautifully under a classic full length trouser in either a straight or slim boot cut, or, for my ladies always wondering what to do with ankle* pants in the winter, these are the perfect option.
*ankle pants – not cropped pants.
You can also pair with a dress.
Our featured bootie, from Coach, is kinda perfect, available in half sizes up to an 11. These will NOT go out of style any time soon, so I’m very comfortable recommending these and these are the pair I’m going with.
If you are feeling spendy, Stuart Weitzman knocked it out of the park with this pair.
Chelsea Boot, $70
We’ve featured Chelsea Boots quiet a bit this fall.
They are a casual, comfortable and relatively inexpensive boot you can wear with jeans and leggings. Just remember, because they are heavy you want to balance them with what you wear on the top.
So go with a chunky sweater, a layered vest look or a slim-cut shacket.
Ruched Boot, $139
Next, we have one of our trendier styles, the ruched boot.
These are fun with leggings, especially faux leather ones, or paired with tights and dresses around the holidays.
AND skinny jeans, so yeah, we’re KEEPING OUR SKINNY JEANS!
You’ll see this style everywhere, from Neiman’s to Target.
I think these are most versatile in black suede, but they are available in various colors.
Block Heel, $228
A block heel boot is a timeless style that works great with full length trousers and jeans.
These are a cleaner version of a traditional chelsea boot, so they don’t have a heavy sole and offer a slimmer profile.
You can see them here with a tie top blouse and slim boot cut jeans.
These aren’t going to be for everyone, but I think they are so fun and full of personality.
Featured above are a pair by Dolce Vita, in dark brown, and I like the truffle suede color as a lighter option.
Of course these are idea to pair with jeans, but they are also super cute with a dress, like a flowly maxi or a sweater dress.
The Tall Boot, $150
Finally, consider bringing in a tall suede boot if you don’t already have one.
I’m featuring this Vince Camuto pair, available in black or tan – both wonderful options. Get a black pair first.
They are look fabulous pull over faux leather leggings, skinny jeans or with tights under a dress.
I bought a similar pair from Nine West a few years ago and while I don’t wear them all the time, I’m always so happy I have them, especially this time of year.
