5 Fall Boot Colors to Try That Aren't Black

Just because it's fall doesn't mean you have officially entered the prison sentence of wearing black boots day in and day out. While black boots are certainly a wardrobe staple everyone should have on deck, this season, we want to keep your wheels turning and remind you of (or, for some, introduce you to) five fall boot colors you should be adding to your closet that aren't black.

Fear not, for the colors ahead are all still neutrals, meaning you can throw them on with a variety of fall looks without a second thought, but unlike a pair of black boots, these will have you looking a bit more forward and a whole lot more stylish. Here, check out five fall boot colors we think will be game changers among your 2019 fall wardrobe in ways a pair of basic black boots never could. Shop our favorite ankle boots within all five color categories, and read up on all the reasons we love each.

Why we love it: It's clear that tan boots will match perfectly with all other neutral hues, but what we love most about the color is that it will also be your saving grace when you decide to throw a wackier color into your ready-to-wear mix. Since tan is pretty much the neutral of all neutrals, you'll reach for tan boots time and again to finish off that outfit you never know how to style.

Why we love it: Dark green might not be the first shade you think of when pondering versatile boot colors, but it should be. Come fall, your wardrobe will inevitably start to transform into a sea of darker colors, and adding a dark-green pair of ankle boots into the mix will liven up even an all-black look in the chicest way.

Why we love it: Just because Labor Day has passed doesn't mean you have to chuck all your favorite white pieces, especially your boots. This fall, use white boots to breathe a bit of life into a darker wardrobe.

Why we love it: Dark-brown boots are a classic, and that's a fact. Whether you opt for a croc, snake, or simple leather version, this rich hue is one you'll be living in the second you add it to your closet.

Why we love it: We know what you're thinking: Snake isn't a color. You're right, it's not, but the trendy animal print has proven to be one of the most versatile prints out there, making us consider it essentially a neutral in our closets. Mix it with prints as shown above or add it to an otherwise minimal look.
