There's no doubt that Gen Z is poised to solidify its Hollywood takeover any minute now. For starters, they've got 25-year-old Zendaya headlining blockbuster films, 21-year-old Yara Shahidi forming her own kind of activism, and 21-year-old Addison Rae successfully crossing over from TikTok influencer to bona fide celebrity. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. 

What do all of these Gen Zers have in common? A great sense of style, of course. Below, I've rounded up five boot trends that are common themes among the youngsters, including Olivia Rodrigo, Willow Smith, Lily-Rose Depp, our October 2020 cover star Emma Chamberlain, and more. Plus, shop the editor-approved fall boots that align with each trend.

Steve Madden will forever be a favorite of 20-somethings. 

Jeffrey Campbell continues to churn out great designs. 

These knee-high platform boots would look great with a miniskirt and semi-sheer tights. 

Prada has also tossed its hat in the ring with these fantastic platforms. 

These look strikingly similar to Willow Smith's boots. 

You simply can't beat this $36 price tag.

On Blackpink's Jisoo: Dior jacket, skirt, and boots

These boots look much more expensive than they really are. 

You can never go wrong with a classic. 

Just in case you're ready to splurge on a luxury designer pair. 

At $91, this is the most wallet-friendly pair of the bunch.

I have a feeling this perfect pair will sell out quickly at Nordstrom. 

In case you aren't up for sky-high heels.

It's safe to say Urban Outfitters is always in tune with Gen Zers.
