We may have been enjoying a few weeks of warm weather that has left us very confused about what to wear, but as Jon Snow often said, “Winter is coming.” It will be time to layer on the scarves, hats, and gloves in no time. And it will be boot season. You’re probably already sporting your favorite pair of ASOS boots but the cold weather is the time to get a new pair of tall boots. Not only do they look chic, but they help keep your legs warm.
Take a look at 14 pairs of tall boots that will see you through the winter:
1. High Heel Leather Boots ($179, Zara)
Tassels are one of the key details of the season and these black leather boots have a tassel detail on the back of the leg. The look is trendy but more formal than your average fringed pair of boots.
2. Knee-High Boots ($69.99, H&M)
These budget-friendly boots are crafted out of imitation suede and faux fur for a luxurious look. You may find it difficult to resist the urge to pet them.
3. Suede Kilo Flat Over-the-Knee Boots ($162, ASOS)
You can wear these berry boots all year long. They are perfect for nailing the 1970′s trend of the fall. Plus, they would work at all of the summer festivals next year.
4. Deal Buckle High-Leg Boots ($210, Topshop)
Normally the interest on footwear is on the toes but these boots have the detail on the back so you’ll look as stylish leaving as you do coming. They may not be the best protection against the wind but they’re brilliant for showing off some leg or tights.
5. Carlos by Carlos Santana Raimi Hawa Boots ($118.95, ShoeBuy)
Instead of somber black and brown tones, try these tan microfiber boots. They would look especially good paired with your winter white outfits.
6. New Look Premium Pointy Toe Stiletto Boots ($180, ASOS)
If you want a more formal pair of boots, try these over-the-knee ones. The stiletto heels and black suede fabric dress them up. Wear them over your knees or cuff them to show a bit more of your jeans.
7. Charles by Charles David Rose Over-the-Knee Boots ($198.95, ShoeBuy)
If you love black but want to try something slightly different, how about navy? These navy microsuede boots add a bit of color to your dark fall outfits. The over-the-knee style is great for winterizing your shorter skirts and shorts.
8. Anne Klein Kahlan Boots ($169, Zappos)
Riding boots are a classic style. It doesn’t matter whether you know how to ride a horse or not. These black leather boots have a buckle detail around the ankle and quilting on the back of the shaft.
9. Caspian Tall Lace-Up Boots ($248, Free People)
Do not be put off by the idea of taking half an hour to lace up each one of these boots when you want to wear them. They have a zip on the side for an easy fit.
10. Bobby Tall Boots ($190, Bogs)
These two-tone boots are a fresh change compared to your usual black, but they are still very versatile. What’s even better is that they are made out of a full-grain waterproof leather.
11. Naturalizer Jennings Knee-High Boots ($149.90, Nordstrom)
If you have trouble finding a pair of knee-high boots that fit, these cognac brown leather boots are available in a wide calf option. Plus, the buckles are adjustable for a superior fit.
12. Jeffrey Campbell Bisset Studded Boots ($270, Nasty Gal)
If you think that boots are boring, just take a look at the studded boots. You can wear these embellished boots instead of your heels when you go out. However, they would look great with your bright coat during the day.
13. Seychelles Alexandrite Over-the-Knee Boots ($300, Urban Outfitters)
You can wear almost everything in your wardrobe with these black boots. The over-the-knee style is taller in the front than the back, and they are constructed out of a pebbled leather that just looks better with age.
14. Guess Daris Slouchy Tall Boots ($135, Macy’s)
Slouchy boots are often meant for casual weekend looks but these ones are perfect for going out. Plus, the red suede is great for the holiday season but doesn’t scream “CHRISTMAS!!!”
