We love warm temperatures and gladiator sandals but have to admit that we’re definitely ready for the crisp air of autumn and closed toe shoes. It’s finally time to stash away the sandals and get ready to slip on the fall’s number 1 staple, the boot!
Here are our ‘best boots of fall’ featuring booties and boots. From the must-have stretch velvet to the staple lace-up boot and even Gucci’s amazingly exaggerated turquoise boot – plus everything in between:
Gianvito Rossi Brandy black booties | available at Barneys.
Beautiful glossy patent leather paneled boot with exposed side zip.
Valentino beige lace-up ballerina boots | available at Ssense.
We also featured these in our recent top shoes post; we love Valentino’s romantic take on the bootie featuring long grosgrain ribbons laces – swoon!
3.1 Phillip Lim Kyoto royal blue stretch velvet boot; available at Forzieri.
Why we love it: The beautiful vintage-inspired crushed velvet combined with the moden stacked heel and touch of metal.
Marco De Vincenzo leather & velvet ankle boots; available at FarFetch.
You may have seen Vincenzo’s popular braided velvet sandals and now he’s designed a beautiful bow-embellished boot also available in black leather too.
Zimmermann lace-up dress booties; available at Shopbop.
We usually go turn to classic black however we would love to style this smooth burgundy leather into our fall wardrobe.

These sheer booties may not keep your feet warm but it’s worth it – we love the sexy shape of the stiletto and long wrap-around laces.
