Happy fall, everyone! If you can’t believe that summer is over, then join the club. Long gone are the hot, sunny days that end in warm, balmy evenings, and so begins the season of crisp breezes, crunchy leaves, lots of cold evenings and probably even a little bit of snow. While this might seem sad, revel in the beauty that your sweater drawer, coat closet and boot collection brings. And if that last one is lacking, we’re here to help you out to ensure you get at least somewhat excited when you’re getting dressed each morning or as excited as someone can be for fall weather.
Black ankle boots should be a staple in your fall wardrobe – a staple that can take you right through to the winter months. They go with everything from tights and a skirt to jeans and an over-sized coat. The trick is to find a pair with a twist. That might mean an interesting heel, an embossed pattern, or a small hit of colour. Either way, as long as they’re mostly black, they’ll remain neutral and keep their staple status.
Whether you’re in to a higher heel, or something a little more walk-able, we have a few options for you to start scoping through before the weather takes a serious turn. Just make sure that if you’re going with suede, you give them a quick spray with Scotch Guard, and keep the leather looking brand new with an occasional polish. And when the season’s over, give them a good clean to remove salt and dirt, and potentially get them re-soled, depending on the wear. Go forth and have the best fall possible in any of these stylish boots!
With the perfect heel height for dressing down or dressing up, these boots are a great investment.
The embossing on these boots is intricate, but subtle enough to keep them neutral, and the fact that it carries on to the heel is a really beautiful detail.
