Yesterday we talked about boot trends for fall, and I mentioned that one of the trending colors this year in footwear is cognac. Cognac is a classic fall color, but I feel like I haven’t seen a lot of it in the past few years. Well, cognac is making a comeback this season, and I am here for it!
These 70s-inspired suede Chelsea boots came from Zappos, and in addition to looking great, they’re stable and walkable. A Chelsea boot is a pull-on bootie with elastic gore panels, and these also have a trendy lug sole with a 1″ platform. They run true to size; I have my usual size 8.
These boots were fully stocked when I ordered them, but it looks like sizes are already getting depleted, so I rounded up some more cognac colored Chelsea boots here:
Cognac pairs well with almost any neutral, but I really like the contrast against a medium wash denim like these 7 For All Mankind cropped straight leg jeans. These also came from Zappos; in fact, most of this outfit did. Yes, Zappos has a lot more than just shoes.
These jeans are a modern straight crop silhouette, with a worn-in vibe but no rips or tears. There’s some subtle distressing along the hems, which is a nice touch. They have a 27″ inseam and a 12″ leg opening, so they sit right over the shaft of my boots to create a long, lean leg line.
This warm creamy yellow tone (Soybean, according to the Pantone’s color trends for fall) is very on trend this season, and I love how it complements the cognac boots. The hardware is gold, as well, which keeps the look warmer for fall.
I usually find BlankNYC to run small, so I purchased the medium, and it fits okay but I think I could have sized down. All that to say, I’d say this jacket runs pretty true to size.
This leather backpack is another Zappos find, and again, this Soybean color is super on trend right now. I like how it almost matches the jacket, and it also coordinates with the platform sole of the boots.
The pebbled leather is buttery and soft, and the shiny silver hardware is almost like adding jewelry to your outfit. I can see carrying this bag a lot this fall.
This neutral color palette is very much on trend this season, and it’s made up of wardrobe basics that you can mix and match with other items in your closet for a variety of fall looks.
The best part about shopping at Zappos, aside from their extensive inventory, is their lightening fast free shipping and 365-day free returns. I’m always so impressed by how quickly I can get an item to arrive on my doorstep!
Also, military members, students, and teachers can get 10% off their Zappos orders — see their Student, Teacher & Military Promotion page for more details.
