Riding Boots

Is there anything that screams “autumn” more than riding boots? For the 2020 fall season, this classic style of cold weather footwear has been upgraded with new elements. Featuring everything from chunky soles to Southwestern details, the reimagined equestrian boot feels like an elevated version of the original style. And with a fresh take on the boot, you can also expect fresh new ways to style them. One idea: pair them with a dress!

Over the Knee Boots

Speaking of boots, many of the top fashion houses used over-the-knee boots for this season’s shows. Thigh high boots are always in style, so consider buying a well made pair that will last for several years. One of the most popular boot trends on the runways in Milan, New York and Paris was without a doubt over-the-knee boots. They showed up in a variety of different colors, prints, fabrics, and silhouettes from slightly slouchy to ultra tight. No matter your favorite style, there’s an over-the-knee boot to match every outfit and budget.

For better or worse, it’s looking like the platform shoe trend is officially here to stay for a while longer. On colder fall or winter nights, we suggest pairing them with warm knit tights.

Chunky Rubber boots

Also spotted on the runways for fall 2020: chunky rubber boots. These are an interesting take on the chunky shoe we’ve seen at fashion shows for several seasons. This style is virtually guaranteed to be a fashion insider darling so snag a pair and give it a try with your own outfits!

Remember that some of these footwear trends may be out of style by next year but buying just one on-trend shoe, you can inject new life into your wardrobe basics! For more on-trend footwear looks that were personally curated by Rita Abramson of Ristyled, head to the link.
