Now that fall is here, it is surely only a matter of days before the first thing you reach for every morning is a pair of boots—if you haven’t started already. In turn, that means you are probably looking for new ways to wear your favorite boots, which brings us to today’s Style Spy story. Yes, whether you have a brand new pair of ankle boots, or you are returning to your tried-and-true riding boots, we have plenty of ideas thanks to stylish stars like Hailee Steinfeld and Miranda Kerr. So, click through to today’s story to discover how they are wearing their fall boots and how you can make these looks your own! Read on!
If there is one boot style that every girl should have in her closet, it is a pair of ankle boots—after all, they are chic, timeless, and super versatile. On that note, we love the outfit Anne Hathaway put together for a stroll around New York in October. By pairing her Tod’s ankle boots with an equally classic piece—specifically, a trench coat—Anne created a cool yet contemporary ensemble that is perfect for fall. To make this look your own, check out these chic ankle boots: Elizabeth & James’ Mercy Booties ($375) and Topshop’s Adore Boots ($124). Then, pair them with a trench coat like Burberry London’s Colorblock Trenchcoat ($1,395) and you are all set.
If you need boots that will take you through the day, but you don’t want to sacrifice your personal style for comfort, a pair of flat ankle boots is the way to go. For proof, just take a look at Hailee Steinfeld, who wore a grey tea dress and lace-up boots to a dinner in Los Angeles in October. By pairing her boots with a breezy mini dress, Hailee has instantly created a chic ensemble with a casual twist—perfect for the girl on the go! To try this look for yourself, check out these flat boots: ASOS’s Ariba Boots ($62.90) and Topshop’s Avenue Boots ($130). Then, pair them with a dress like Shoshanna’s Mini-Dot Dress ($340).
If you want to add a tough twist to your look, make sure you take notes from Marion Cotillard and pick up a pair of biker boots. Marion was spotted at JFK airport last week wearing a wool coat, a striped top, jeans, and black biker boots. While the upper half of her ensemble has a Parisian-chic twist, the lower half feels more rock ‘n’ roll than rococo. The takeaway? Make sure to balance your biker boots with chic, classic pieces. To make this look your own, check out these biker boots: Burberry’s Biker Boots ($895) and Zara’s Biker Boots ($99.90). We would pair them with pieces like Guess’s Wool-Blend Coat ($148) and Joie’s Jasmina Top ($69).
Finally, if you want a pair of boots that will go with just about everything in your closet, we suggest you take notes from Miranda Kerr and pick up a pair of riding boots. Miranda paired her riding boots with jeans and a chunky sweater coat, creating a preppy-inspired look that instantly evoked thoughts of Ali MacGraw’s character in Love Story. Of course, you can also pair these with floaty dresses and midi skirts, making riding boots a fall must-have. To try this style, check out these options: Reiss’s Tomasina Over-The-Knee Pull-On Boots ($475) and Zara’s Fashion Heel Boots ($169). Then, pair them with a coat like Preen Line’s Shearling-Trimmed Wool-Blend Cardigan ($2,040) and you are set.
