Along with shorter days and pumpkin-spice everything, fall always brings with it a batch of boots—some classic, some fresh—to add to your collection. Below, how to wear everything from equestrian-inspired knee-highs to sculptural kitten heels.
Cream or ecru is a chic yet versatile alternative to classic black. Style them with dark, monochromatic looks to play up their palette-cleansing quality. To protect from spills and stains, treat them with a leather protectant before your first wear.

Sensible enough for the office but dressy enough for a night out, LBBs (little black booties) are the quintessential day-to-night shoes. These sleek, pointy-toe options lend an elegant edge to a plush turtleneck and denim skirt.

The beauty of riding boots is that they elevate virtually anything: polished wool shorts, puff-sleeve dresses, and crisp cotton shirting layered under a Jacquard minidress.
