Ankle boots are kind of our thing. Right now, we have chunky-soled Chelsea boots firmly on our minds, and luckily we just found a brand that covers all the requirements (read: cool, practical, comfortable, and ideally under $200). Blundstone, a Tasmanian boot brand that's been around since 1870, is a staple in Aussie girls' wardrobes, and it's officially becoming a mainstay in ours as well. Fun fact: Tasmania is a small island off the coast of Australia, so these shoes have a very authentic feel to them. We're talking quality leather, an array of colors, and super-on-trend silhouettes. Whether you find yourself in SoHo or Silver Lake (or somewhere in between), a chunky Chelsea boot is the perfect way to incorporate the utility trend into your wardrobe for fall. See our favorite styles here.
This sleek all-black heeled Chelsea is perfect for pairing with prints and maxi silhouettes (both major fall trends). Have a floral dress you want to feel fall-ready? Toughen it up with these bad boys.
If you ever wanted to look like a total badass, these shoes will do the trick. This boot is just asking to be styled with a classic leather moto jacket, but it's equally good with corduroy boilersuits (a big trend for fall).
High-tops not your thing? A shorter ankle boot in a rich brown will give you the neutral color palette as a starting point for your look. Pair with raw-hem creamy denim and a turtleneck for an easy weekend look.
