Snow isn’t coming anytime soon, so why not enjoy the chilled breeze and colored leaves in style? When it comes to fashion, Fall is the essential weather of layered clothing filled with knit sweaters, infinity scarfs and of course, anklet boots. If you’re having trouble finding footwear that suits your style, then search no further, here are the top five must-have boots.

1. Chelsea boot

Kanye West, like his personality or not, is one of the trendiest artist out right now. From his latest red Yeezys and Nike releases, anything that he wears is going to be featured in a major fashion blog/site the next morning. Recently West’s newest trend has been the Chelsea boot. Chelsea boots are a no lace boot with an elastic styled boot. The great thing about these boots is that they aren’t gender-categorized. With warm neutral colors along with different textures, both men and women can find themselves wearing them. Best paired up with a thin sock or a sleek stocking, these boots fit the style of a girl who is not afraid to contrast both a feminine and masculine look at the same time.

2. Doctor Martens

If your style is more hipster-chic, then Doctor Martens would be the best fit for you this season. The great thing about these boots is that the design varies from a low top to a high top. Either or would be good for either the cold days versus the warm days during the fall season.  Also known as “docs,” vary in a range of daring colors from burgundy red, Everest green, to even a mustard yellow—all reflecting the beautiful colors of Autumn leaves. Docs are a statement piece and perfect for a girl who isn’t afraid to lace up with color. Better paired with black leggings, a skater dress or even your favorite pair of skinny jeans, docs are the daring Fall boots to be on the lookout for.

3. Platform sneakers

All girls should feel like the sidewalk is their runway.  Platform sneakers are the perfect way to strut your stuff without the anxious feeling like you might trip and fall. The great thing about this new trend of footwear is that it is basically two shoes in one. This shoe is perfect for girls who have a tomboy side; that’s where the sneaker part comes in but also have a girly side to them, hence the platform lift. Dressing down in sweats or up in a dress/skirt, both looks will stop anyone in their tracks and be great for the run—I mean sidewalk.

4. L.L.Bean boots

L.L.Bean boots have been a Fall favorite for a while. In its warm neutral tones, this boot goes well with any outfit and can be worn during cold and warm weather! So don’t wait till there is six feet of snow around you, go for them now while the weather is mild. If you like to go outdoors a lot and aren’t afraid of getting dirty, then these boots will get the job done. Originally made for hiking, the cushion and sturdiness is durable for any adventure while being fashionable attractive of course.

5. Hunter boots

Does it even rain during the fall? Not as much as one thinks, so when it comes to Hunter boots, many seem to overlook them and save them for the Spring season. However, with their variety of textures and lengths, Hunter boots are great footwear for Fall. Aside from the traditional glossy tall look, they run in a matte texture, coming in calm colors from evergreen to mahogany red. If you’re a girl who cant get enough of the comfortable feel of rain boots, don’t worry. Hunter boots are the perfect fit for comfort and still be weather appropriate.

Whether it be a fashionable ankle boot or a bold platform, these top five shoes are appropriate for all types of personalities and styles for the perfect girl.
