Fall Boots Under $500

What would fall be without boots? Boots can be a practical basic or the missing link to making a statement with your outfit. Don’t get it wrong! Although in style every year, the must-have looks change each season. Below is my list of must-haves for Fall 2012. As a bonus, all of them are under $500!

The equestrian look is a major trend this season, so a riding boot is a definite must-have. Try them over skinny jeans or cords, or under a maxi skirt. Frye boots are a classic, so don’t worry about these ever going out of style.

With a simple two-tone look and rounded edges, this pair is effortlessly elegant. Try it with a plaid blazer for a Ladies & Gents look.

This riding boot has a little heel, which will make your legs look like you’ve been riding horses your whole life! The heel also keeps the look from overwhelming a smaller frame.
Luxury Rebel harness boot
I know I have trouble getting tight, tall boots over my legs sometimes. Try a pair like these that has a stretch panel down the sides, giving you extra room in the calves. These look awesome in black too!
Cole Haan riding boot
Out of the country, and into the city! The Moto (i.e. Motorcycle) boot is another must-have this season. Can’t you just see this pair wandering the streets of Paris?

Leather, buckles, and studs… oh my! Who said Moto boots had to be black? I’d love these with an oversized, soft pink cashmere sweater…

One trend that never goes away is the cowboy boot.

Cowboy boots can have higher heels, too! Take these for a night out as a comfortable alternative to spiked heel boots.

The final boot style is the bootie. Because of their low profile, these boots can go with maxi skirts, short skirts and tights, tucked-into jeans… you name it, they work!

The wedge bootie is one of the most important shoe shapes this season. Wear it with cropped pants and a blouse.
