Now that we can feel the air getting crisper and the weather getting cooler, we've officially entered boot season. As biased as I might be (I am a November baby, after all), I stand by the fact that boot season is the best season. For one, the outfits are just better. Sure, you can point to the layering or the knits as to 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.
Great, now that we've got that settled, let's get into what you're really here for: boot trends. Curious about which outdated boot styles you should retire to upgrade your wardrobe? I asked Who What Wear editors 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 sock boots that multiple 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 we're here for.
