The Top 5 Boot Styles You Need Immediately

Splurge vs. Steal on the Falls Hottest Trends

Fall is quickly approaching and I’m in full blown boot shopping mode!

I’ve been searching high and low for some unique fall boots in some of my new favorite style-trends.  I’m sharing a splurge vs. steal for each trend & giving some advice on how to style them.

1.  Velvet Boots

Veeeeeelvet!  Do I have to say more?  Velvet is THE texture of the fall.  From dresses to shoes, you will be seeing it EVERYWHERE.  That is why I think owning a pair of these boots is a MUST this year!

2.  Animal Print

I love the cheetah and leopard print booties trend.  It’s definitely one of my personal favorites this fall. When getting this type of style, I suggest getting a higher quality boot & brand.  You don’t want them to look cheap!

3.  Embellished Boots

The best way to dress up a super casual look for a night out is with Embellished Boots!  It adds a little sparkle to your look.  I’m the kind of gal that will rock these boots night and day.

You always need a boot thats a little bit more casual.  This is my running errands or going out to get lunch type of shoe.  You can pair them with a dress or with your favorite pair of denim.

5.  Statement Boots

If you read our Fashion Friday post, How to Simplify Your Fall Statement Boots, you know I have a thing for statement boots.  I chose two different types of statement boots in my splurge vs. steal.  I think splurging on Dr. Martens is so worth it!  They were a huge staple in the 90s and the 90s are back this fall.
