Boots are a perennial staple of fall footwear and its time to start exploring the season's best options, whether it be shopping for new essentials or digging in the back of our closets for fall boots that are once again en vogue. Across the Fall/Winter 2020 runways of Louis Vuitton, Prada, Bottega Veneta, and more, a number of versatile boot trends emerged, perfect for pairing with an autumn dress or layering with leggings.
Taking inspiration from the runway collections, L’OFFICIEL gathers the best fall boot trends of the season—from timeless styles to modern updates.
Over-the-knee boots have long been a fashion favorite. For fall, we saw both structured and slouchy styles dominate, but one thing’s clear: leather is is in.
A utilitarian and edgy option for fall, the lug boot’s inherently durable design makes it perfect for any activity. For fall, Valentino showed us black, thick-soled classics, while Prada played with pastels.
The Fall/Winter 2020 shows brought new life to an old trend: sock boots. Playing with daring heights, embellishments, and textures, designers showed that the skin-hugging style is here to stay.
In contrast, wide-shaft boots have gained an undeniable amount of popularity. Keep things roomy and casual with a flat heel like Lanvin and Louis Vuitton’s.
Over the years, the slant heel of a typical Western boot has made its way to high fashion, and designers showed variations that could fit any occasion—from ultra-embellished to ankle-height.
