Shoesday Tuesday: White Boots You Need in Your Life
By: Kelsey Tucker
Forget the “no white after labor day” myth—it’s the color of the season. In fact, the white boot trend erupted before we could even start dusting off our favorite fall boots. First seen on models of-the-moment Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner early in the season, we have watched the trend leave its stamp on the pages of top fashion bloggers and influencers, and quickly into our hearts. In search of the perfect pair? We have rounded-up the hottest styles from ankle to over-the-knee. And don’t worry, a little indulge never hurt anybody.
A classic shape, these booties are versatile with a multitude of outfits. They will look perfect under your favorite Levi’s with a chunky sweater or over a pair of tights and silky wrap-dress. They can easily take you from Studio 54 to Paris in a matter of seconds.

This ankle boot has combined with another major trend - hello, kitten heel - to create the ideal feminine-meets-edgy fall footwear. The black heel and sole give a subtle pop that can easily dress up or dress down an outfit in an instant. Pair with black skinny jeans and a leather jacket for a Kate Moss-inspired look or with a floral midi-dress to spice-up your typical feminine vibe.

The slouchy knee-high boot has taken the industry by storm and we can see why. Even with the pointed-toe and the triangular heel, the ruched-leather style of the shaft is fit for comfort all while remaining sleek and structured. Pair with lush denim or a suede mini-skirt for the ultimate comfortably-chic outfit.

These color-contrasting booties are too good not to be in your closet. The black cap-toe says “work” while the mirrored heel screams “party.” Add some sparkle or pleats into your outfit and you’ll be getting immediate attention.

Did somebody say sex appeal? The stiletto heel and the almond-toe of this boot are about as Samantha Jones as a shoe can get. Dress them up with a red slip dress or a black velvet blazer and flared-crops to complete the look. An investment as good as these bad boys will be sure to get you through every season for years to come.

Not quite ready for fall weather yet? These ankle boots are a great pair to transition from the warmth of summer into the chill of winter. Take them from a denim skirt and vintage band t-shirt to denim skinnies and a bomber jacket. The studs are sure to work with your closet year-round.
