How was your Summer? Ours was the usual, hot and steamy. I’m so ready for cooler weather and all that it brings. Hot chai tea or hot chocolate. Cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and lots of boots.
Tall boots, short boots, rain boots, snow boots, I don’t care. I love (and want) them all!!!
I’m getting ready for the Capsule Wardrobe Challenge. So, I’m dusting off last year’s boots and looking at what needs to be replaced and maybe adding a new pair or two.
There are always new colors, new styles, and a few brands every season. I’m almost giddy just thinking about the possibilities.
Let’s face it though, normally one pair of boots isn’t enough. Stylish boots aren’t always practical. Practical, weather resistant boots aren’t always stylish.
Today, I have a list of a few of my favorite must have boots for Fall and Winter. I hope you find a few new options for your Fall wardrobe.
When you’re considering new boots, I recommend buying leather as often as possible. I know that can mean spending a little more. But, genuine leather generally lasts 2-3 times longer and stands up better to rain, sleet, and snow better than vegan/faux leather. Protecting your real leather and suede with a spray like this one can also extend their life and keep them looking nice for a long time. A shoe brush for brushing tired suede back to life and removing dried on dirt is another inexpensive way to keep you and your footwear looking fabulous.
Here are a few of my Must Have Boots for Fall ~
Ugg Rain Boots ~ I see a lot of people wearing a pricier brand of rain boots which I’m sure are very nice. But……… These rain boots are half the price and the soft wool in the bottom is so comfy and warm. The leg opening is fairly wide, which makes them easy to wear with your pants tucked in. Check them out in a Leopard Print. The boots socks they make for these are super cute.
Suede Wedge Boots ~ These have been in my closet for 2 years now and I love them!!! Wedge heels are terrific if you are like me and have a hard time handling regular heels. Tall suede wedge boots are beautiful with skirts and dresses in the winter. There’s a side zip on these boots to make it easy to get a comfortable fit and adjust your pants if you want to tuck.
Leather All Weather Boots ~ When it comes to must have boots for Fall, it’s important to be prepared for bad weather. These are great for bad weather and are sooooooo comfortable right out of the box. I chose the wine color. The black seemed too much like a work boot to me. The wine or navy make them a little more fashionable while still being very functional. You’ll be so sporty and still ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at you this season.
Ugg Short Boots ~ I’ll be honest with you. When Ugg boots first came out I thought “Oh My Goodness. Those are so ugly.” Then, during an incredibly cold winter, I got a pair as a Christmas present from my husband. And, they were covered in sparkles!!!! Let me just say, if it gets cold where you live, these are AMAZING!!! If you don’t like the way they look, try to look past that and give them a try. They are like wearing slippers and keep your feet sooooooooo toasty warm. You can’t even believe it. I might have to talk to Santa about these or maybe these. Ugg tend to run a touch small. You might want to size up just a little.
Leather Riding Boots ~ These tall boots are only a one-inch heel but still wonderful with jeans or a skirt. Sofft brand is very comfortable with a great tread on the bottom for the weather. The lace detailing on the back makes them so trendy.
Tip For Helping Boots Maintain Their Shape – When you take your boots off at the end of the day, take a rolled up magazine and stuff it inside each boot. This will help the boot stand up and keep the leather from “breaking” at the ankle.
Suede Ankle Booties ~ Whether you wear these dressed up or down, the wider heel will provide a little stability and you’ll be gorgeous in these booties. Try them with opaque tights and a dress!
Buckle Ankle Booties ~ Another stylish option in ankle booties (with a wider heel). I LOVE these. I’m a jeans girl and these can certainly be worn dressed up but would be absolutely perfect for jeans. Both colors are great for Fall and Winter.
Colder and wetter weather requires good footwear. That doesn’t have to mean ugly and boring. You can look fabulous and still be prepared for whatever the Mother Nature throws your way.
