Maybe it's because I'm a November baby, but once the weather starts to turn crisper, I pull out all the stops to curate my ultimate fall wardrobe. In my humble opinion, this time of year brings out the very best in fashion, and let's face it: Boots are at the heart of it all. From roughly September through March, I wear boots more than any other shoes.
Since I'm already in full fall-outfit-planning mode, I have my eye on a few boot trends I want to try out, such as chunky Chelsea boots and classic knee-high boots. As for how to wear them? As you gleaned from the title, I compiled a roundup of 16 new fall boot outfits I fully plan on trying. For a little outfit inspiration and some of my favorite boots on the market, just keep reading.
WEAR: Skirt Suit + Collared Shirt + Chunky Chelsea Boots
Chunky Chelsea boots are the fall 2021 boot trend everyone has agreed on, and Marilyn's styling idea here is further convincing me. Her skirt suit leans classic and polished while the boots help to toughen up the look and make it feel oh so current.
WHO: Sophia Brenn
WEAR: Trench Coat + Shoulder Bag + Trousers + Combat Boots
Fact: Throwing a trench coat on top of just about anything makes it automatically appear more put-together, and this is a prime example of that. Paired with combat boots and a cool bag, the look is as easy to re-create as it is practical and weather-friendly.
WHO: Sylvie Mus
WEAR: Oversize Button-Down Shirt + Knee-High Boots + Shoulder Bag
Will I ever be over '90s style? I don't think so. Sylvie's take on '90s-inspired minimalism is commendable, and I plan on trying to re-create my own version of this with throwback elements like a shoulder bag and knee-high boots.
WEAR: Crop Top + Bootcut Jeans + Printed Ankle Boots
Name a more classic pairing than jeans and ankle boots—I'll wait. Javi's take on the timeless duo feels fresh thanks to upgraded classics like bootcut jeans (another fall 2020 trend) and eye-catching printed ankle boots, which add interest to an otherwise neutral look.
WHO: Emmanuelle Koffi
WEAR: Trench Coat + Knee-High Boots + Cardigan
In case you weren't convinced of the power a trench coat has to make an outfit, let this be my final argument. Emmanuelle threw hers on over a cute cardigan and paired it with knee-high boots. It's Parisian-chic.
WHO: Najma Ahmed
WEAR: Leather Blazer + T-Shirt + Jeans + Platform Boots
Why wear a classic blazer when you can make it leather? An oversize blazer looks all the cooler in sleek leather but just as easy to throw on with jeans and a tee. It's also the outfit trend cool girls are leaning way into this fall.
WHO: Sofia Coelho
WEAR: Knit Vest + Collared Shirt + Trousers + Ankle Boots
I've already expressed my love for knit vests, but one more time couldn't hurt, right? This look hits the mark because it emulates that prep-school vibe that's trending right now, and the heeled ankle boots give it a polished feel.
WHO: Martina McFarlane
WEAR: Printed Minidress + Mini Bag + Croc-Effect Boots
Print clashing is not for the faint of heart, but done right, it's impressive. One way to test it out is by wearing textured boots as one print and a patterned dress as the other. Mock-croc boots work well for this.
WHO: Stephanie Arant
WEAR: Cropped Blazer + High-Waisted Jeans + Square-Toe Boots
Traditional blazers are cool and all, but cropped blazers are hitting the spotlight this fall, and we couldn't be more obsessed with this styling of them. Try high-waisted jeans to meet the blazer hem and pair with square-toe boots for an edgy spin.
WHO: Funda Christophersen
WEAR: Skinny Jeans + Knee-High Boots + Blazer + Oversize Sweater
All out of ideas with your skinny jeans? Take a cue from Funda's look here and tuck yours into knee-high boots for a fashion-forward spin. Tie a sweater over your shoulders to give your look even more style.
WHO: Rachel Everitt
WEAR: Puff-Sleeve Shirt + Pinafore Dress + Chunky Knee-High Boots
The prep-school vibes continue. Layer a collared shirt underneath a pinafore dress (any sleeveless dress will do) and wear with chunky rubber boots. The Ganni pair below is a personal favorite.
