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, like chunky Chelsea boots and class 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 emerging fall 2020 boot trend I absolutely want to try, 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 look is a prime example of that. Paired with combat boots and a cool bag, this look is one that's 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: Solène OJ
WEAR: Leather Trench Coat + Knee-High Boots + Pearl Jewelry
In case you weren't convinced of the power a trench coat has to make an outfit, let this be my final argument. Solène cinched hers at the waist to create the look of a jacket dress and paired it with knee-high boots. It's all quite chic.
WEAR: Leather Blazer + Minidress + Knee-High Boots + Aviator Sunglasses
Why wear a classic blazer when you can make it leather? An oversize blazer looks all the cooler in sleek leather and worn with a minidress. It's also the outfit trend cool girls are leaning way into this fall.
WHO: Lindley Edwards
WHAT: Knit Vest + Collared Shirt + Pleated Miniskirt + Combat 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 combat boots give it a cool edge.
WHO: Martina McFarlane
WHAT: 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.
WHAT: Cropped Blazer + High-Waisted Jeans + Platform 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 platform boots for an edgy spin.
