There's no such thing as too much black, and don't let anyone try to tell you otherwise. In fact, when you take into account the cost per wear, adding just one more pair of super-versatile boots to your rotation really doesn't need justifying. Since we've already invested in most of our usual go-to styles, we're using this season as an excuse to make things a little more interesting by way of ladylike lace, industrial details, and statement heels to die for.

Ahead, our five favorite pairs of NET-A-PORTER's black boots (that are anything but boring).


Off-White Grosgrain-Trimmed Suede Ankle Boots 

Anything by Off-White is usually on the fast track to becoming a cult favorite, and these suede ankle boots aren't looking to disappoint.


Saint Laurent Opyum Patent-Leather Ankle Boots 

Anthony Vaccarello's logo-heel pumps are all grown up and ready for fall.


Jimmy Choo Louella 100 Metallic Stretch-Velvet Sock Boots

These stretch-velvet booties in shimmering gunmetal are perfect with a head-to-toe black look.


Balenciaga Lace and Spandex Sock Boots

Speaking of sock boots, this lace-finish style couldn't look better with leather.


Isabel Marant Luliana Glittered Leather Ankle Boots

Straight from the runway, these boots are super-comfortable thanks to Isabel Marant's signature conical heel.

Executive Director, Brand Studio

Natalie leads the style direction for the all content we create in partnership with our friends at various brands plus the legendary team of editors who work on those shoots and stories. She loves collaborating and storytelling, so it's a really fun role for her. It's also the first full-time job she's ever had⁠! She started out in her career as a very mediocre model who agreed to her first styling job to impress a photographer she had a crush on, which led her down a happy path of contributing to Vogue Australia and working as a stylist, fashion writer, and creative director for all sorts of brands and titles. She has a bachelor of communications, but most of her career opportunities came up thanks to some fleeting and accidental street style moments. She's been at Who What Wear for three and a half years and still loves to work as a freelance consultant with brands and designers to shoot their campaigns in NYC. She's originally from New Zealand, and Bondi Beach is her second home, but like just about every other 20-something, she fell in love with New York at some point. She lives in Williamsburg with her fiancé and their weird little dog, Ruby. If you ever need reccies for feel-good fashion, legit coffee spots, politics podcasts, or non-intimidating yoga studios, she's very much your girl.
