The Best Fall and Winter Boots

by | Style, Thanksgiving Style | 2 comments

With Fall in full swing and Winter just around the corner, it is officially boot and booties season. Investing in a comfortable pair of boots or booties makes all the difference. The right pair of boots can be dressed up or down, worn with jeans or a dress, and ultimately become the easiest decision you make when getting dressed. I’m sharing the best Fall and Winter boots for 2020 below with my favorite styles, brands, and more!

13 Perfect Little Black Dresses For Fall

Best Selection
Nordstrom has the biggest and best selection of boots and booties! From carrying larger sizes to having extended calf options and multiple widths to choose from, they have options for everyone. In addition, I love that they offer free shipping and free returns. This way you can purchase multiple pairs and return what doesn’t work either in store or by shipping it back!
Best New Boot Brand
Known as being one of Meghan Markle’s favorite shoe designers, Sarah Flint, has recently come out with boots! If they are anything like her heels that have a cult following, then they are worth every penny. I’m loving this style and this style from her boot collection. These would look so cute with a dress! Plus, you can get $25 off your first order when you sign up for their emails.

Best Boots Currently On Sale
While you might not have browsed their shoe selection, I highly recommend checking out J.Crew for boots and booties. Right now, most of theirs are 30-50% off and come in classic styles that you can wear for years to come.

Best Waterproof Boots
If you’re looking for a comfortable pair of waterproof boots or booties, I highly recommend the brand Blondo. These boots have an AquaProtect seal on them that protects the outside and keeps them looking great, even if you get caught in the rain or walk through the slush. One of the biggest perks is that this brand is known for how comfortable their boots are in addition to not requiring any breaking in.

 

Best Over The Knee Boot
The most popular over-the-knee boots for women for years has been the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boot. They have a huge following and thousands of rave reviews.Along with a cushioned footbed, the stylish boots have a soft leather lining, an easy-to-pull-on silhouette, and a durable rubber outsole. While these boots do have a pretty big price tag of $695 and rarely go on sale, I found a great deal where they are 30% off right now.
Best Boots For Cold Days
When the weather is chilly and all you want to reach for are cozy items to keep you warm, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Uggs or Sorel. These are great boots for all ages and will be in your closet for years to come. If you don’t have a pair of Uggs yet, I highly recommend going for a neutral like black, grey, or chestnut so that it will go with everything. The best part though is that they now make a waterproof version!  These Sorel Joan of Arctic are my favorite cold weather boots.  My girls have them, too.  I wear them often during winter soccer season as well as around town!

No matter the style or brand, I highly recommend having at least one pair of black boots and one pair of brown boots in your wardrobe. These two neutral colors pair with everything and will become closet staples during cold weather!

Do you have a favorite boot brand? I’d love to know what it is! I’m always looking for new ones to try and share about.

    Good morning—

    Would you mind sharing the brand of the sweater that you are wearing with the brown corduroy skirt?
    I know you posted a similar style but I just love the sweater.

      Hi Sharon,
      It is from last fall and by a company called Co. It has a great tattered hem detail. I wish it was still available for you!
