It’s undeniably one of the biggest things we look forward to with the start of fall: getting brand new boots! With so many amazing boot trends out there such as Western-inspired, motorcycle, knee-high and lace-ups, a girl simply can’t limit herself to just one pair!
Here is just a small sampling of our favorite boots from some of our beloved fashion brands to get you in the fall state of mind!:
Future Queen of England, Kate Middleton, was seen at her first official royal duty sporting a hot pair of the ravishing Rouge ankle boots from Aquatalia by Marvin K. Middleton has already made quite a name for herself in the fashion industry with her style choices. The waterproof Rouge served great purpose at the naming ceremony of the RNLI lifeboat Hereford Endeavour as she and Prince William poured champagne on the vessel in celebration. The slightly pointed toe, accent strap and breathable microfiber lining are fitting for a future queen.
As if wearing Aquatalia boots on her first royal event wasn’t big enough, Middleton stepped out the next day in another pair of Aquatalia boots (the Rumba, from last fall). Marvin K. coined the term functional luxury to describe the innovative shoe, boot and sandal designs that allow women to live their lives without ever missing a step. Aquatalia has perfected the art of fusing technical elements to the latest fashion in footwear. Ease and comfort remain essential ingredients to looking fabulous every day.

Faux fur has been a reoccurring theme in past seasons, but this season is about picking one piece and building an outfit around it. Our fashion experts, Brooke and Kaya, have put together some faux fur-inspired outfits that will have you looking up-to-date and fabulous in a snap.
Try a beautiful vest, such as the Faux Coyote Crop Shrug from MICHAEL Michael Kors, paired with a long sleeve tee and jeans for a casually modern look. If you want to dress up the vest a bit, dark skinny jeans and a nice pair of heels are all you need. Silky feminine tops and studded booties make ideal partners for a faux fur vest and an over-the-vest belt will help accentuate your figure with ease.
Faux fur-trimmed boots, like the Furgetit from Stuart Weitzman, are a cute and cozy way to stay updated this season. Skinny jeans, airy blouses, clean-line coats and statement necklaces make trendy and polished additions to an outfit built around the boots. Boots aren’t the only faux fur accessory you can turn to – hats, handbags, jewelry and even socks are available in faux fur on Zappos.com. Rock your faux fur accessories with turtleneck sweaters, bootcut corduroy trousers, classic trench coats and a crossbody bag.
Less is more and as long as you pair your faux fur with some feminine pieces like silky blouses and form-fitting belts, you’ll be good to go. Hitting the faux fur trend out of the park is an easy homerun this holiday season. Check out our Trends page as well our Stylists’ Picks for sound fashion advice from the pros.
