12 Fall 2018 Boots Trends You'll Want To Sport Before The First Leaf Drops
You're probably still wearing your strappy sandals and sundresses every day, but it's time to face the reality that summer is nearly over. Autumn, in all its fiery glory, is just around the corner, which means perusing fall 2018 boot trends is also right around the corner. If you're like me then you're gearing up for the best seasonal shopping event of the year because nothing, and I mean nothing, beats scouting out the best chunky knits, plaid skirts, wool pea-coats, and booties. Bring on the foliage and bring on the fall fashion.
Whether you're into patent or matte, stacked heels or chunky treads, fall 2018 footwear is poised to be mighty exciting. Hiking-inspired boots have never looked grungier or more fashion forward, while animal prints and geometric heel shapes reign supreme among the sleeker and more classic styles. As for color palettes, it's all about neutrals, with pops of earthy colors here and there.
Check out 12 of my favorite fall boot picks for under $100 below that span all styles and trends. Because coats tend to cover up most of your outfit during cold weather months, you can never have too many standout close-toed shoes, so don't feel guilty to snag a few pairs. A shoe addict's rationale, indeed.
