The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of an essential fall shoe is almost always a basic black boot. I love myself a good pair of plain black boots, and boy have I bought my fair share, but this season’s boots are shaking things up. Designers are adding snakeskin, studs, metallics, textures and prints to create not-so-basic black boots.
As most of us tend to start piling on our black clothing the second fall temperatures hit (New Yorkers, I’m looking at you), adding a bit flair on your shoe could be just the thing to spice up your outfit. We’ve picked out our favorite booties to pair with those chunky black knits hanging in your closet. So while those beloved black booties of yours still hold a special place in your heart, we promise they won’t mind you giving them a break and switching things up a bit.
