Admittedly, fall is one of my favorite seasons thanks to the plethora of amazing footwear options, specifically boots. While summer is still in full swing, I’m already looking ahead to the next few months and planning my fall purchases and style updates. When it comes to boots, this year I’m recommending three main styles to all my clients, and I'm already predicting they will be the shoes you’ll see all over New York City. 1. Hiking boots. Thanks to brands like Proenza and Ganni, the “outdoor activity” boot got a major fashion facelift for fall. 2. Western boots. I’m already seeing Tibi’s chic cowboy-style boots around the streets of NYC. 3. Knee-high boots. Whether you pair the style with your go-to jeans or a cool floral dress, the sleek style is having a comeback. Below you’ll find my picks from each must-have boot trend for the new season.
