by Anna P. | July 19th, 2011 | Fashion

We’ve still got two months before the temperatures start to take a dip, but stores are ready to begin peddling fall clothes, accessories, and shoes. If you’re ready to start thinking about cool autumn style, then why not begin with an essential like boots?

Here is your primer to three different styles of boots, and why you want and/or need them this upcoming season.

Ankle Boots

If you love the look of boots, but don’t like the clunkiness of most styles, ankle boots are probably your best option. The hottest styles this season include lots of buckles and square or stiletto heels. This fall you can wear your ankle boots with skinny jeans and a cool tee for an edgy rocker-chic look, or you could wear them with a denim dress for a look that’s cool and unexpected.

Dressy Leather Boots

This fall, spoil yourself with a pair of luxe shiny  black (or brown) leather boots! Ideally, you should shop for a pair that meets your shin or calf, and they should always have a heel. You can wear these kinds of boots under long skirts or dresses for that trendy bohemian look. You could also wear these shoes with dark jeans or dressier trousers, as long as as the entire style looks streamlined.

Winter Utility Boots

If you live in a place with a harsh winter climate, you should invest in a pair of quality winter boots. Fortunately with today’s styles, you won’t have to forgo comfort or fashion! You should try to  select a pair of boots with fur lining, solid insulation that prevents the cold and water from seeping into your footwear, and a flat heel with traction. You may need to shell out more for this type of footwear to ensure quality protection and long-term use.
