I’m having a really hard time writing about boots right now because I have sunny Cabo on my mind! One week from today I’ll be laying out by the pool at the The Cape Hotel sipping on a perfectly crafted jalapeno margarita. I can not freaking wait! Until then I will try to focus my attention on fall clothing and in particular the hottest ankle boot trends for the season.
Here are the top four boots that need to be in my (and your) shoe closet:
1. Patent Leather Boots
I’ve always secretly loved patent leather. There is something about that gorgeous glossy leather that makes me want to instantly pull out my wallet. It’s sexy, edgy, but also polished at the same time. Patent leather ankle boots are a staple in my closet and I wear them with pretty much everything. I dress up a graphic T and distressed denim or add some edge to a oversized sweater.
2. White Boots
These boots remind me of Austin Powers. It’s a trend that took me a little bit of getting used to at first but now I’m all for it. I have yet to pull the trigger on a white ankle boot but there are a few on my radar that I can’t stop thinking about.
3. Velvet Boots
Ahhh….Velvet. It’s everywhere → literally. I feel like this trend just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I just recently saw velvet bikinis! I don’t know how I feel about wearing velvet in the water but velvet booties are a big YES for me. If you’re going to wear velvet boots be sure to make a statement with a bold bright color. My favorite colors right now are maroon and royal blue! I love wearing a black chunky sweater, black leggings, and a colored velvet boot for a pop of color.
4. Sock Boots
Let’s just say I’m obsessed with sock boots. If you’re going to try one boot trend this year it needs to be sock boots! They are super flattering on, make your legs look slimmer, and have I mentioned how freaking comfortable they are? One of my favorite ways to wear them is with distressed boyfriend jeans. Again, I like to be a daring with this trend by purchasing wild colors like yellows and bright reds. There are so many varieties and you can find some seriously killer deals on sock boots right now (check out these from Zara!).
