The Only 2 Boot Trends NYC Girls Are Buying for Fall

I have a pretty strong obsession with boots. Even though I live in L.A. where it’s sunny most of the year and boots are by no means a requirement by weather standards, they’re a year-round staple in my wardrobe. In the winter, that’s a given when I’m wearing leather hiking boots and tall suede versions, but I don’t abandon boots when summer rolls around either. This past summer, I slipped into my favorite ankle boots with everything from jeans to high-waisted trousers. You might say I’m something of a boot obsessee.

Though I wear boots with abandon any time of the year, fall is typically when I invest in new styles to add to my growing collection. This season, in particular, is full of seriously great boots styles. Right now I already have cowboy boots and faux-croc styles in my shopping cart, but before investing in something new, I was curious to tap the fashion set to find out what they’ll be purchasing now.

My findings were interesting. Though I opened up their picks to any boot style for the season ahead, two standout trends came out on top. Each person landed on either cowboy boots or tall boot styles, so I expect to see those two silhouettes everywhere in the next few months. Ahead fashion’s most stylish NYC insiders are sharing their edit of the best fall boots for next season.
