Boot season is here, and as a major boot person, that makes this editor particularly excited. As biased as I might be, I stand by the fact that boot season is the best season. Sure, you can point to the layering or the knits as the reason why the fashion just feels stronger this time of year, but I’ll be firmly advocating that a solid pair of boots has a lot to do with it.
Curious about which outdated boot styles you should retire to upgrade your wardrobe? Who What Wear’s team of editors have thoughts on the matter, so I asked them to name the boot trends they’re breaking up with this fall and, of course, which trends you can find them wearing on repeat instead. Let’s face it: We’ll be wearing our boots nonstop from now until April, so if you haven’t found your ideal pair (or two or three pairs) yet, there’s no better time than the present.
From the stiletto boots that editors are putting away to the chunky-soled boots that are already trending hard for fall, keep reading to find out which boot trends we’re naming as “in” and “out” and then shop each one that made the cut.
