Halloween Costumes With Boots

If there is one accessory that is the undisputed queen of fall, it's simple boots. Summer is the time for mules and classic loafers, but as Honeycrisp apples arrive at the farmers markets and crisp leaves start to crunch underfoot, we put away our open-toed shoes and instead pull out our boots in all shapes, sizes, materials, and colors. 

Halloween hits at peak fall, which is prime boot season. That's what makes the footwear the perfect accessory for any Halloween costume. Boots will keep you dancing all night while providing the perfect accent to the costume of your choice. Whether they're over-the-knee, ankle, or come in a bold shade of red, there's a costume for that. From Lydia Deetz to Vivian Ward and Daenerys Targaryen, some of our favorite characters wear this simple fall staple, and so can you in these costumes with boots.

Combat Boots: Lydia Deetz

Bella Hadid won Halloween with her Lydia Deetz costume. Since I will be wearing the same costume this year, I'm glad to already have a pair of combat boots waiting in my closet.

Over-the-Knee Boots: Vivian Ward

The solution for not completely freezing in a minidress on Halloween? Over-the-knee boots, which happen to be a key component in the iconic Vivian Ward dress from the opening scenes of Pretty Woman. We also like Dascha Polanco's addition of a practical coat here.

Black Booties: The Bride in Kill Bill

We all have a pair of black booties in our closets, so why not use them to transform into Uma Thurman's iconic role as The Bride in Kill Bill. Variations of this look can also work as a race car driver.

Red Boots: Devil

Red boots are a bold way to make a statement whether you're wearing a costume or not. For the former, try dressing up like Stefflon Don did as a devil at the Kiss Haunted House Party.
