Whether you consider yourself a glamour girl, a rock and roll rebel, or an uptown fashionista, one thing is certain: when fall arrives, we all need a great pair of boots! Happily, your quest for the perfect pair of boots will be easy this year thanks to our Fall 2011 Boot Guide, which is full of amazing options that will suit girls of every ilk. On that note, read on to check out our favorite picks and make sure you take notes as you will find plenty of ideas in today’s story!
As modern girls-on-the-go, we know you have a calendar jam-packed with events this fall, which means finding footwear for every occasion. If your diary includes a stint at fashion week, or a fashion industry event, make sure you pick up a pair of statement boots. For instance, who can say no to Diane von Furstenberg’s Penn Fringed Leather Knee Boots ($650)? We love the deep red hue, naturally, but we also love the bohemian vibe—they evoke Talitha Getty and Ali MacGraw in equal parts. We also love Charlotte Olympia’s Alice Siamese Animal Print Booties ($809). Not only is the leopard-print fabric guaranteed to catch the eye, but the super-high heel will add some major length to the leg. (Did we mention that these booties are a favorite of Olivia Palermo’s?) If you have a party coming up, we recommend picking up Reiss’s Moon Gold Heel Boots ($370). Not only were embellished heels a major theme on the fall runways, but these boots are an easy way to add a little glitz to your party ensemble. On that note, you should also check out Topshop’s Stereo Suede Stud Shoe Boots ($185). They have a rock ‘n’ roll vibe and they will look great with anything from leather skinnies through to a LBD.
Of course, if your calendar is so crowded with events that you don’t have time in between to change, you will need a pair of boots that easily transitions from one occasion to another. We suggest checking out Opening Ceremony’s Jeanette 2 Booties ($480). Not only do they have a cool, effortless vibe, but they will easily take you from day through to night. We also suggest you check out Marc By Marc Jacobs’ Wingtip Platform Booties ($390). Of course, heeled loafers are a major fall trend, but we think these particular booties will last you long past this season, making them more investment, less whim. Finally, if you just want something to take you from day to day, we definitely suggest you check out Hudson’s Encke Buckle Boots ($229.95) or, if you like a heel, KG by Kurt Geiger’s Winston Lace Up Hiking Boots ($329.31). Both pairs have a low-key aesthetic that will ensure they go with just about anything. Happy shopping!
