We have officially entered tall boot territory, folks. Fall is here, which means it’s time to go deep in to the back of your closet and dust of your leather and faux leather knee high boots–you’ll be wearing them for the next few months. If you don’t love what you find in the back of that closet, it’s time to buy a new pair–and may we suggest a pair of timeless riding boots? They’re always in style, so shelling out a few hundred dollars on them is a wise investment (you’ll literally wear them for years).
When shopping for a pair, there’s a few characteristics to keep an eye out for: the “throat” of the boot is slimming—and sometimes dressed in a black-and-brown colorblock pattern, the top is usually slanted, and there’s almost always a subtle detail like an extra leather strap or piece of hardware. Slip these boots over skinny jeans, leggings, or opaque tights, and team them with your favorite chunky knit pullover sweater for the coziest (and cutest) outfit for fall. Check out our slideshow to get started on the best shopping decision you’ll make this month.
