While tall black boots are nothing out of the ordinary, the season of fall is the perfect time to start browsing and investing in a staple pair for the cooler (and then colder) months. And when it comes to choosing a particular style, designers like Alexander Wang, Bottega Veneta, Proenza Schouler, Nina Ricci, and Givenchy, prefer you pick a tall black boot. The height can lengthen the legs, while the black shade is ultimately flattering (and goes with anything that you’re wearing too!). For those days when the temps are nearly freezing, take a hint from Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler by slipping on over-the-knee black socks for extra coverage.
