No Girl Should Be Without Booties, And Here Are 16 Of The Best For Fall.
It's been nearly a month since the first day of fall. And if you've been putting off buying boots for this season, you're in luck. We picked the top styles to own and where to get them (There's even a special sale on boots over at Nordstrom.). For those that want a sturdy boot, try a classic stacked heel. If you're into a more rugged and sporty look, go for a boot with a lug sole. Want to channel your inner rebel? Wear boots covered in buckles and hardware. If you're aiming for sleek and chic style—the over-the-knee boot will provide just that. And, as always, a wedge bootie will take you from day to night and everywhere in-between. They're just so comfy! This season, each boot trend is so different, you'll be tempted to get every single one. Check out our top choices in the slideshow now.

The Most Comfortable Fall Boot You’ll Ever Wear: The Stacked-Heel Bootie
Maybe it has something to do with the prevalence (and some would argue the over-worn-ness) of the wedged sneaker, but this fall wedges as a whole are out, which means wedge booties, the most comfortable bootie known to man, is a bit off-trend.

The stacked-heel bootie is a bit different than your typical Jeffrey Campbell It shoe in that the stacked-heel is higher.

Say good-bye to your wedges for a few months. These stacked-heels are all you need. [Photo: The Glamourai]

Louboutin said, "There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn't exist for men.[...]A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes.
