It’s not boot season yet, but…. we’re getting closer! They’ve been an essential part of my fall wardrobe since at least college. I mean, a fall dress with boots? J’adore. But they also work with casual outfits! And they’re warm! I’m always on the hunt for the best fall boots and this is a pretty solid roundup of them, if I do say so myself.
Best Fall Boots
I have to start with what I think are the best fall boots ever. I am truly obsessed with every pair of Margaux shoes I’ve ever owned, and these are in constant rotation once the temperature drops. Bonus: They require no break-in period! (I do recommend going up half a size for the best fit.) These boots from Hunter are too cute! Tall rain boots can get a little hot on humid days so these are a great backup. I generally save my Uggs for winter, but on especially chilly days I’ll pull them out early. These boots also come from Margaux– I wore them all the time in Copenhagen and they kept me warm and comfortable even though it was cold and rainy the entire time. Great for casual outfits for fall.
I’ve had these Hunter rain boots for years and I absolutely love how they’re packable. This is such a game changer when you’re traveling. Have you heard that riding boots are back?! Honestly, I’m glad to have a use for my skinny jeans again. This pair is versatile and the caramel color is beautiful. I have a pair of Madewell boots I was influenced to buy a few years ago by my friend Kelly, but they’ve since sold out. These from J.Crew have even better reviews! I recently picked up what is probably my new best fall boots…. from Margaux. (Last pair, I promise!) I’m already brainstorming all the fall outfit ideas with them.
I was also fawning over this super similar pair that are 2/3 the price. They’re a touch shorter and have a gold zipper, but besides that, exactly the same– I’m simply loyal to Margaux. I saw these on Tuckernuck and the patchwork is such a fun twist on the riding boot. And then there’s this dark embossed pair that is so, SO chic. I’m half convinced to scoop both of them up too! Ending on what I call my magic boots– because they really are magic! Somehow they’re lengthening, versatile, warm, and WATERPROOF.
