Trend Report: The Hottest Tall Boots for the Coldest Season

We’re being whisked into winter!  With a flurry of snow (or a torrent of rain, depending where you live), the chilliest season has arrived.  It’s the perfect time to embrace the warmth of the statement-making tall boot.

My favorite thing about tall boots: they’re crazy easy to dress up or down. I love wearing tall-shaft boots with everything from my favorite skinnies to a fit-and-flare dress and tights.  Both of these looks are on-trend and can utilize the same pair of boots for a wide range of vibes.  Translation: more fashion, less fuss (and bucks)!

Check out the most-loved styles of the season!

Fall 2013: Styling Your Favorite Skinnies

The skinny-fit silhouette creates the perfect foundation to explore fall’s latest trends. Here are 3 of our favorite ways to  incorporate bold prints and daring looks (such as faux-leather and tribal prints) this season:

moto-chic

Faux-leather can be intimidating, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. Try a hi-low top to soften faux-leather leggings. Finish with chunky booties (we love this pair from Steve Madden) and classic Rayban aviators for a fierce, but balanced look.

layered-love

One of our tried-and-true looks for fall is layers. Lots of layers. By adding a variety of lengths (tunic cardigan, tall riding boots, cozy scarf) to your favorite skinny jeans, you create a dimensional look that is cute AND functional for those chilly fall nights. As you bundle, take the opportunity to add prints (such as our elephant print scarf) into your ensemble.

globetrotters

Tribal prints are still going strong this season, and we love finding new ways to fuse them into our wardrobes. Because these skinnies have such a bold print, we recommend cooling it down with one of our other favorite trends–a chambray top! Combat boots and the MICHAEL Michael Kors dog-tag necklace create a globetrotting look that is perfect for fall.

Shop all skinnies.

How will you be styling your favorite skinnies this fall?

The Boot Shop: A Perfect Fit

Dropping temperatures, brisk breezes and vivid leaves mean one thing: fall is on its way!  Your wardrobe might need an update, but that doesn’t mean you have to update your personality with the changing seasons.  The Dillard’s Boot Shop has a variety of styles for every fall fashionista.  Plus, our extended calf sizes make it easier than ever to find the perfect fit — for your feet and your style.

Which boot beauty are you?

MonicaBlog

  1. The Biker Babe.  Ready to ride? From Vince Camuto, the Winchell moto-inspired boots offer tough leathers and goldtone buckles to complement your brassy personality. An inside zipper lets you gear up for the road in a flash.
  2. The Charming Cowgirl.  Rugged doesn’t have to be masculine, and the Old West definitely doesn’t have to be old-fashioned. The sequin inlays in these Corral boots combine modern, feminine shimmer with tough Western style.
  3. The Delicate Darling.  Show off your girly side with the Bailey bow boots from UGG Australia. Silky bows accent the back shaft of this classic silhouette for a touch of sweet flair. Even sweeter: the sheepskin sock provides unbelievable comfort.
  4. The Versatile Vixen.  The Steve Madden Troopa military-inspired booties continue to be one of our most popular boots, and for good reason — they’re all about versatility. Pair them with a flowy dress and leggings for an ultra-feminine look or your favorite skinny jeans for a tougher vibe.
  5. The Studded Stunner.  The leaves may be changing, but the stud trend is here to stay. From MICHAEL Michael Kors, the stud-sprinkled Aiden booties add chic intensity to any look. The latticed upper and peep toe are perfect for a hint of skin to balance bundled fall looks.
  6. The Wayfaring Woman.  Got a case of wanderlust? The tumbled leather and strap details of Arturo Chiang’s Fionia boots give a utilitarian feel that’s perfect for the avid adventurer. Added bonus: the elastic gore at the back shaft allows for anything your travels throw your way.

Elevated Style: What to Wear With Wedge Sneakers

Comfortable yet slimming, sporty yet sexy — the wedge sneaker is one of those ingenious designs that makes you wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?” But while the concept is simple, styling the hybrid shoe can prove to be a bit tricky. Fortunately, we have some easy tips for creating both casual and eye-catching looks.

Sporty Chic

If you’re going for a laid-back look with a little lift, sporty styling is the place to start. Think skinny jeans (in dark denim or black) paired with updated sweatshirts and slouchy graphic tees. Throw in delicate jewelry and a structured bag to hint at your femininity.
