If you ask this editor, nothing makes or breaks an outfit like footwear — which is why I strategically start any big clothing haul by shopping for the hottest and functional shoes of the season. And now that fall is officially upon us, there's truly no better time to start thinking about booties and boots.
With many classics silhouettes, statement colour and pattern trends and new twists on nostalgic icons now to choose from, we thought we'd help you by putting together an edit of our picks of the must-have boot trends for fall 2020.
From utilitarian styles, slouchy and Western-inspired styles and so much more, scroll through our picks below.
That’s So Square Toe
We’ve seen ankle boots paired with the classic round toe and the elongating point-toe throughout the years, but this season, it’s all about the return of the ‘70s-inspired square toe. While this statement may be a subtle one, due to its old-school origins, square toe boots are perfect for elevating a simple flared denim or wide-leg pants look without straying too far away from comfort.
SHOP IT: Mango, $180
Yup, western boots are still in — only this time, we’ll be seeing more colours, prints and textures paired with iconic features. Western booties are a fun way to jazz up peasant dresses from last season and can instantly dress up a plain, oversized tunic!
SHOP IT: ALDO, $160
Tall and Slouchy
Slouchy booties continue to dominate the realm of fall footwear, only this time they’re turning it up a notch in height. With their natural ability to elongate the legs, tall and slouchy boots effortlessly have the ability to tone down even the sexiest looks making them perfect for day-to-night attire (or for when you seriously can’t choose between dressing up or down). Just take a look at Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner for notes.
SHOP IT: Zara, $159
Super Thigh Highs
Looking for an easy and statement-making pair? We say you can never go wrong with a thigh-high boot — a star-approved, versatile option that can be paired with anything from mini dresses to sweater dresses and more.
SHOP IT: ASOS, $159
Chunky Sole Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots are without a doubt a timeless staple. Typically ankle height, these booties feature signature elastic side panels that make them easy to slip on and off. Rather than opting for a traditional pair, this year, try going for ones with a chunky platform sole.
