The hottest trends in Fall boots
By Carla Snuggs
Every year, I look forward to wearing cozy sweaters and a wide variety of boots in the fall. There is something so fun, chic and sexy about wearing a great pair of boots and they really add some oomph to a great outfit! Here are some of the hottest trends in fall boots to compliment your daytime casual outfits and evening looks. From rainy days to cocktail hour, there is something for everyone!
BOOTIES and SHOOTIES
According to Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse shoe experts and buyers, one of the top boot trends for the fall is shooties! This popular trend from 2014 has carried over into fall featuring multi-textured canvas and leather in natural hues. These versatile booties can easily be dressed up or down, when paired with a dress or skinny jeans.
Cindi Shapiro, SVP Merchandising Chadwicks of Boston and Metrostyle. loves the idea of wearing boots for evening attire. “If you’re looking for a boot to take you into the nighttime, you must consider the ankle bootie,” advises Shapiro. “Especially styles with a slightly more tapered toe and a bit of a heel. They combine that sexiness you get from a pump with that right-now look of a boot. Shapiro added, “A sleek black bootie will instantly elevate your little black dress and give it a stylish edge. And, if you’re really feeling daring, try a fun color like deep purple. Just wow!”
