Fab Feet: Top Picks for Fall Boots

Hello Fabulistas! I’ve already shared my secrets for how to keep your winter coats looking chic. Now let’s chat fall boots. I practically live in the style staple! It’s tough to narrow down just a few that I love, but these are the chicest that capture some of my favorite design elements.

Hard and soft balance

No matter what kind of design you’re going for, it needs balance! I love putting different elements up against each other to create chic, accessible surprises. This Fendi sculptural heel elevates this go-to boot shape and makes it anything but basic.

Urban hiker

I’m always amazed by how New Yorkers can take something designed for utiliquity and make it look like it was made for this urban setting! Fashion and interior design both require creativity and reimagining things. This Pierre Hardy wedge bootie is the pavement-pounding equal of laid-back cabin style repurposed for a loft apartment.

Defying logic

Some of the most fab rooms I’ve seen appear to defy logic, practicality, and just about everything else–on the surface. The heels of these Alexander Wang boots seem like they won’t hold up to actual wear and tear. However, expert design and chic exectuion means that you can have a usable, awe-inspiring design!

Structured metallic

I adore including metallic touches with a bit of edge in my rooms. These Alexander McQueen booties capture that. They have a fab gold sheen with a cracked leather finish that draws your eye. But remember, when you have this much going on, you need some structure. These boots are elegantly sculpted in lines that give them shape without being rigid.

Reliable classic

I adore a good classic. That goes for brown riding boots, too. They’re like a trusty heirloom chair that’s worth holding on to for decades, only they flatter your figure, too!
