If you’re looking for a tall boot that is a little more comfortable boot (skinny heels can be tough to walk in), choose a one to three inch heel with a rounded toe, like this Merona Manette boot. A bit more causal, this western inspired boot isn’t just meant for cowgirls. This is a great everyday boot and is comfy enough to wear for hours on end.

Tall boots will keep your legs warm this fall, and if you invest in a classic pair, you can wear them for years to come. Choose a black or brown boot (they will go with almost anything in your wardrobe) that is fitted throughout the leg. This knee-high Studio Paolo ‘Nicole’ boot is a dressier boot that can be paired with a skirt that hits just above the knee or with a dress and tights. For a more casual look, tuck in skinny jeans.

Short Boots

If you don’t typically wear heeled boots, choose a stacked heel, like this Dr. Scholl’s Adler Shootie. The two inch heel adds height, while still being wearable and easy to walk in. If brown isn’t your color, this suede boot also comes in black and navy.

The great thing about ankle boots is that they go with everything. If you’re only looking to get one pair of short boots this fall, invest in a black leather pair like this N.Y.L.A. ‘Tacey’ Oxford-Style Bootie from Nordstrom. With a lace-up front, studded trim detailing and a wooden heel platform, this boot looks high fashion, yet is affordable.

Colored Boots

Women’s Shi by Journeys Maylee Boot — $50

3001 White Bear Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55109

Red was a hot color on the runway this fall and boots are no exception. In addition to being a trendy color, this Maylee boot has fold-over detailing and a back bow for a feminine feel. This boot probably isn’t something you’d wear to the office, but it is perfect for weekends and for a night out.

INC International Concepts Women’s Shoes Marwa Platform Boot — $98

700 Nicollet Mall # 550
Minneapolis, MN 55402
Hours: Mon- Thurs 10am – 8pm; Fri – Sat 9am – 9pm; Sun 12pm -6pm

Traditional black, grey and brown boots are a great addition to any fall wardrobe, but you can spice things up this season by adding color to your footwear. Choose a short boot (knee-high colored boots get to be a bit too much color) with a dark, rich hue, like this INC Platform boot. The grape color is bold without being too bright and the unique cut-out detail is eye-catching.

    Like the high heels are gonna work well in a Minnesota winter….. Please rethink this list and make it practical…..

    1. Miss K says:

      Sorry — I missed the ‘Autumn’ seasonality… I associate boots with winter and not so much as a ‘fall fashion must have’….. Hey, if you’ve got the $$$ go for it!

  2. SPeterson says:

    Re-read the headline.. It says AUTUMN BOOTS.. not winter!!!

    1. SPeterson says:

      Not to mention the first line of the article says ‘A must have for any Fall Outfit…’

      1. Jean says:

        Then don’t mention it. Let it go already.

  3. Joe says:

    As a man I must say that I have enjoyed seeing the short skirts and high heels that are in fashion but I need a break. I never thought I’d be saying this but I welcome the fall boots for a change. My 57 year old wife (she’ll kill me) can wear them and she’s looking good! : 0 )

  4. beingzhenya says:

    These are great suggestions! I hope MN women follow them, though I don’t really see it happening – today I spotted the first UGGS 😦 Ugly is all I can say!

    1. em1022 says:

      What are we suppose to wear in this freezing state for six months?? I prefer EMU boots; they are insanely warm!

  5. Ummm, right... says:

    Love that dorky A$$ cover picture. Ladies, don’t go out in public looking like that – all us guys do is roll our eyes and laugh. And as for the purple things, hope you’re brown, named Jaquille, and have a pimp named Maurice…
