It’s not quite time to put those summer sandals in storage, but now is the moment to invest in a fresh pair of boots for crisp autumn days ahead. This season, there’s a lot to get excited about. Right now, we’re loving knee-highs, from vampy pointed-toe styles to clunkier, ‘90s inspired trouser boots a la Bella Hadid. Another trend we’re seeing: ankle boots with a lot of personality. The best ones eschew worn-in silhouettes and textures in favor of sculptural heels, high-shine patent leather or, in Manolo Blahnik’s case, a trompe l'oeil Mary Jane effect. Consider them all a great way to add an unexpected pop of intrigue to an otherwise straightforward outfit. And who says rainy days need to call for the same old pair of ho-hum wellies? Some of our favorite brands are getting creative with waterproof rubber, fashioning it into glossy, elegant boots that are as chic as they are practical. For cooler days, faux fur and shearling styles reign supreme, from classic Ugg minis to a mountaineering-inspired pair from Burberry. Peruse all of our favorites as you start dreaming of crisp afternoons and cozy sweaters.
