Most Stylish Boots Of Fall 2014

Every gal needs a good pair of boots to get her through those colder months. This fall, the boots – like the clothes – are wild. Sixties-mod styles dominate, but there is no shortage of quirkiness if you’re brave enough. Be inspired by these fall runway looks.

Knee-high and thigh-high boots

You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of knee-high boots, like Valentino‘s wide-legged, heels – perfect for both day and night occasions. However, we also love Alexander Wang‘s fresh, modern take on the style, with his low-heeled, tri-toned thigh-highs.

Block heels

On-trend with the popular mod look, are these Lanvin (left) and Gucci (right) boots with square, block heels. Blue is a popular color this season, as is the tan leather. lanvin vogue - gucci

Textures and prints

Snakeskin patterns and reptile textures are hot – just see Tom Ford and Gucci (left-right). However, Valentino is also making waves with his colorful retro-print ankle boots (pictured top). - tom ford glamour gucci

Straps, buckles and laces

Adornments of all kinds were seen on the fall runway, but my personal favorites are the Isabel Marant stiletto boot, and Louis Vuitton‘s tan ankle boot with a patent finish. - isabel marant vogue louis vuitton

Flat and casual

Calvin Klein showed a range of sporty sneaker-boots at his show, but the velvet-textured Doc Martin replicas are the street-friendly winner. Also loving Rick Owens‘ boots/tights/sneakers combo shoe.
