    31 Boots To Wear To Any Fall Outing You Have This Year

    Sandals — see ya next year. We've fully transitioned to the glorious time of year known as boot season.

    1. A pair of super-sturdy, high-quality Chelsea boots everyone should own a pair of. You'll instantly realize how smart of a purchase you made when you realize these can go with literally any outfit you pick out.

    3. Microsuede ankle booties so versatile, you're bound to wear these at least three times a week. Pair them with straight leg jeans, your favorite skirt, or even tights and a cute fall dress.

    4. Chunky booties you'll be stomping around in all autumn long. Just imagine how satisfying it'll be crunching leaves with these bad boys!

    5. Or this chunky Chelsea boot option with a really thick sole and a higher rise up the leg, making it the perfect shoe to transition into winter as the temperatures drop.

    6. A pair of waterproof Columbia hiking boots if you're looking to embrace your outdoorsy side this fall and go on some nature hikes to get an up-close view of all those changing leaves.

    7. Weather-resistant suede boots so you can pick pumpkins and apples with the confidence your shoes won't end up ruined in the field. Most suede boots get destroyed after mere seconds in the mud, so these are a true keeper.

    8. A stiletto bootie with a super-glamorous cutout on the side that's lined with beautiful rhinestones. Is this footwear or a piece of art? I think it's both.

    11. Kitten heel booties to instantly glam up any outfit you wear them with. Seriously — you might just be wearing a simple T-shirt and jeans, but then you put these on and BAM: Instaworthy ensemble.

    12. Some cowboy boots that are so on-trend at the moment. Your fall wardrobe is practically begging you to add some Western flair to it this year!

    15. Knit and faux-fur-lined booties to keep your toes extra warm on those chilly fall nights full of bonfires, hayrides, and jumping into leaf piles.

    16. Over-the-knee boots that are the statement piece you need in your fall wardrobe this year. They'll also provide some much-need warmth for your legs as the temperatures start to drop.

    17. Or this thigh-high option with some toe cutouts — if you just got a pedicure and want to show off those freshly painted toes, go for it!

    18. Chunky-heel booties that come in a variety of different colors, but we're partial to the white ones because they'll help you stand out in a sea full of black, brown, and beige boots this fall.

    19. Nonslip suede booties, which can be worn two ways: either rolled down to show off the faux-fur lining or unrolled so you get more warmth up your leg.

    20. Waterproof mid-calf snow boots that look way more chic and fashion forward than your normal snow boots. And you don't have to wait for the first blizzard to start wearing these — they make a great fall boot, especially when it's raining and cold outside!

    21. A black-and-white-striped pointed-toe bootie with lots of buckle designs if you're looking to embrace your spooky side this fall. Bonus: I think these would be the perfect base for a Beetlejuice costume for Halloween!
