Fall in love with these autumn boot trends
It’s time to give summer sandals the boot!
From casual-cool booties to preppy riding boots, footwear is the key ingredient to a perfect fall outfit.
The fashion runways have provided a forecast of the boot trends that will leave their footprints on fall fashion. A few of the early shoe-ins for fall 2015? Color blocking on boots, fringe benefits and sexy over-the-knee boots.
Here are four pairs of stylish boots that are on-trend for fall 2015.
High-end designers like Fendi and Tom Ford have been debuting contrasting colors on boots at runway shows. Get in on the trend (for under $100!) with these Sam Edelman stacked-heel booties that color block with black and white, feature a sleek, pointed toe and get a little edgy with metal studs.

On the fringe:
The fringe trend is still going strong for 2015. It works great as either a country-chic accent to an outfit or to add a dose of boho to your apparel. We like the subtle addition of fringe detailing on these round-toe taupe booties. They’ll look just as cute with cuffed denim as they would with tights and a dress.

The sexiest stand-out on the runways? Over-the-knee boots, which are so cool that style insiders are giving them a nickname: OTK boots. This year’s styles are higher than ever. Studded OTK boots were stand-outs on the Altuzarra runways and Marc Jacobs interpreted the trend with super-chunky heels. If you’re fashion forward, we dare you give these black leather over-the-knee boots a try. They double up on sexy with a thin heel.

Sock it to you:
The socks-with-boots combo is getting some fashion lovin’ again. Dramatic cut-outs on boots are a design trend that make it easy to give the socks-and-boots trend a trial run. For a fun look, let some playful socks play peek-a-boo. We’re thinking black-and-white polka dots or a colorful geometric pattern. These black leather Jeffrey Campbell booties are a super sleek option. Jeffrey Campbell Oriley Cutout Ankle Boot, $195 (plus Cash Back), Urbanoutfitters.com
