It’s finally nearing boot season and that means kicking the sandals and flip-flops to the back of the closet and ending the constant worry of a chipped pedicure.
Women’s boot styles ebb and flow like everything else in the world of fashion. That’s not to say the boots you wore last year won’t still look totally cool this year. But you might not have the “it” boot of the season waiting in your closet.
To find out what that is, trend-setters look to the runways of the top fashion designers. And for the fall season in 2022, Carolina Herrera’s Ready-to-Wear Collection features black over-the-knee boots, Chanel’s Fall/Winter Collection boasts burly boots made of rubber, Dior’s Haute Couture Collection makes lace-up granny boots look trendy again, while Miu Miu’s Fall Winter Collection adds rugged motorcycle-inspired boots to their waif runway models.
So what boot trends will you see on streets this fall? It’s a combo of looks from all these fabulous fashion designers — chunky, lace-up and rugged, combat-inspired knee-high and over-the-knee boots. But unlike designer boots, these picks are way more affordable, but equally stylish.
