If there’s one wardrobe item that screams fall, it’s a great pair of boots, and today I’ve got the forecast on boot trends we will be seeing this fall.
A few favorites from last season will be making an appearance, but there are also some great new styles and silhouettes on the fashion horizon. The great thing is this list has a wide range of styles, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.
5 Boot Trends for Fall 2021
Some trends to watch for this season include lug soles, higher shafts, and platforms. As far as boot color trends, we’re seeing a lot of light neutrals like sand, white, and taupe. We are also seeing more cognac this year, as well as some bold colors like red, rust, and olive.
#1. Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots are a pull-on style with elastic goring on the sides, and they’re hotter than ever this year. These ankle boots are extremely versatile, as they can easily be dressed up or down, making them a valuable piece to any wardrobe.
This year we’re seeing a mix of the traditional sole of years past, the rugged lug sole, and a 70’s-inspired platform sole.
#2. Combat/Military Inspired
Lace-up combat boots are also trending again this fall, and these sometimes cross over into hiker boot territory. This mens-inspired style looks great with jeans, or you can pair them with a dress or skirt for a fun juxtaposition.
If the regular combat style boot is a little too masculine for you, try to incorporate the trend with a lace-less pair like the zip-up wedge boots below.
Or go for a softer color, like brown or even white.
#3. Western Inspired
Western-inspired details are very on trend this season, and you’ll see them incorporated into many of the fashion boots on the retail shelves. Think embroidered leather, pointed toes, and stacked heels. This white leather pair gives a subtle nod to the trend without being too over-the-top.
And I love the snipped toe on this pair by Vince Camuto.

#4. Knee-High Boots
We’re finally starting to see the popularity of the over-the-knee styles waning, and knee-high boots are making a comeback this season. I, for one, couldn’t be more excited. I love a knee-high boot because they pair easily with fall dresses.
Or you can pull them on over your skinny jeans for a sleek, sophisticated silhouette.
#5. Sock Booties
Sock booties (also called stretch booties) are designed with a soft upper that fits tightly to your ankle. They’re super very flattering because they show off the smallest part of your leg.
These booties fit easily under skinny jeans or straight-leg styles, and you can also pair them with skirts and dresses.
