Wear Your Boots With: A Colorful Top and Skirt

Bright colors are staking their claim for Fall from super-saturated shades to sweet pastels. As a fun and unexpected pairing, try styling western boots with a colorful top and floaty skirt which will easily skim over the top of the boots.


Wear Your Boots With: An Animal Print Set

Animal prints are going bolder for Fall, both in brighter colors and less-common motifs like cow, zebra, and tiger. To temper the effect of a printed jacket-and-skirt set, layer a fitted mock-neck top in a softer color underneath and finish off the look with versatile black boots. Bonus points for a tough, lug-sole pair.


Wear Your Boots With: A Dress and Trench Coat

Feminine dresses are staples year-round, but to extend the life of your favorite Summer version, simply swap your sandals for boots and toss a trench over top when you need a warmer layer.


Wear Your Boots With: A Dress and Teddy Coat

Fall dress silhouettes run the gamut, but longer hemlines are a fresh-from-the-runway look to try, especially in a powdery-soft hue. To give yours a cool-weather spin, team with sleek boots and add a cozy teddy coat into the mix when the cold really hits.


Wear Your Boots With: A Top, Jacket, and Jeans

The easiest way to take your tee-and-jeans outfits into Fall? With a pair of boots! To liven up the combo, go for a printed jacket and finish with a polished bag.


Wear Your Boots With: A Sweatshirt, Jacket, and Pants

Fall is all about texture and a fun way to experiment is by blending fabrics and prints. For a fashion-girl look with a relaxed feel, style a simple sweatshirt underneath a leather jacket and printed pants. For the finale, a pair of snake-print boots feels totally fresh.


Wear Your Boots With: A Dress

We get it, you don't want to retire your Summer dresses just yet. And there's no need! For in-between weather, punctuate your favorite maxis with a lighter pair of boots, and voilà! You're done. Later in the season, top the look with a textured blazer or coat.


Wear Your Boots With: A Shirt and Jeans

Button-down shirts and jeans are fail-safe with boots during the transitional season and into early Fall. To give this classic combo a playful feel, opt for a piece in animal print, whether it's your top, bag, or boots.


Wear Your Boots With: A Dress

Another dress-and-boot combo to try now, during transitional weather, and into early Fall is a feminine silhouette with light suede boots. Whether your dress of choice features puffy sleeves, a ruffled hemline, or so-sweet print, a beige-colored boot with clean lines is sure to pair perfectly.


Wear Your Boots With: A Top, Blazer, and Pants

When styling boots for the office, think outside the box and try your hand at a casually tailored look via a fitted mock-neck top, belted blazer, and jogger-style trousers. The result: polished with impact.
