We’ve only just entered October, but the boot trends for colder weather are already on the streets being showcased by fashion models, celebrities and influencers. We love this time of the year, simply because we get to wear our chic winter wardrobes and gloriously stylish boots. From chunky platform boots to Western-inspired cowboy boots, some styles aren’t going anywhere for 2022.
If you feel like your go-to boots are gathering dust in the storage room or if you think your current selection is just outdated, these trendy (and some even timeless) boots are here to your rescue. We’ve rounded up five boot trends below that have been setting the fashion stage on fire.
Western-Inspired Or Cowboy Boots
Celebrities and fashionistas lapped up the cowboy boots trend and have been wearing it to death since the beginning of the year. Dialling down the traditional cowboy boots style a bit, fashion girlies have been making a strong case for a contemporary iteration of the yee-haw pairs—the ‘Western-inspired’ boots with simple distressing, neutral, classic colours and sleek designs, or sometimes in funky colourful embroidery as well. When a shoe can be paired with anything from tennis skirts and flowy dresses to bootcut jeans and mini skirts, we’re definitely all over it!
Lug-Sole or Chelsea Boots
Functional items can never go out of style and they never let us down either. Chunky lug-sole boots is the way to go if you’re obsessed with the cool-girl vibe without sacrificing comfort. We’re in love with all the ‘thicc’ soles this season.
Micro Ugg Boots
Micro uggs are perfect if you’re looking for casual comfort. The classic uggs, which were taken over by the 2012 pumpkin spiced latte-obsessed, infinity-scarf-wearing and Vampire Diaries-loving Tumblr girls, have undergone a modern makeover and turned into the ultra mini platform uggs. These adorable booties can be paired with anything ranging from biker shorts, mini skirts and leather blazers as demonstrated by supermodels Bella Hadid and Adut Akech Biormini.
Boots With Pointed Toes
Pointy boots are perfect to polish off a look and appear well put-together and stylish. These shoes give off the ‘rich, single globe-trotting aunt’ plus ‘girl-boss’ vibes. This autumn, don’t forget: the pointier, the better.
‘90s-Inspired Sock Boots
Will new fashion trends ever stop borrowing inspiration from the ’90s? Probably not, and we’re super into it! These sultry fitted leather boots definitely take your look to the model-off-duty level. If you want to stand out in a crowded room and exude the ultimate femme fatale slash The Matrix slash secret spy vibe, go for the above-the-knee sock boot. Become a sartorial icon by pairing it with mini dresses and blazers, slicked back hair and gold accessories.
