In 3 Weeks, Every Fashion Girl Will Be Wearing These Ankle Boots

Believe it or not, the first fashion week of 2019 is just days away. Although the runways will be showcasing the latest fall and winter trends of the year, the attire of the attendees will be focused on staying warm in the frigid New York air. Whether it be snow, rain, or whipping winds, fashion girls are girding their loins as they prepare to take on the peak winter weather in style.

The key to looking fashion week–ready while still staying warm? Wearing killer boots. Since open-toed sandals and pretty little pumps might not be the most practical choice this time around, we are predicting all the trending ankle-boot styles you're about to see on all of your favorite It girls, influencers, and editors, as they storm around the city in style. Ready to see which popular ankle-boot trends took the cake?

Platform (more specifically, lace-up platform) boots are going to be a very popular choice indeed. Not only do these sturdy boots protect against snow and rain, but they also add that edge an outfit sometimes just needs.

Hiking boots are to New York what flip-flops are to California. The practical (and thankfully) trendy shoe style is one fashion girls have taken a particular liking to. Once again, considering the frigid temperatures come fashion week, there's no doubt the soles of nearly everyone will wear these at least once.

Mock crocodile is the accessories trend we're pretty sure we couldn't live without. With that patent-like shine and expensive-looking texture, this material in the form of an ankle boot is a win-win for any fashion week look.
