Two words for fall: ankle boots! Fall is fast approaching. Some may be sad to see vacation days pass, but have no fear, pumpkin is here! But seriously, with longer days, colder temps, and falling leaves comes exciting new fashion trends. One of these hot new trends is ankle boots. These aren’t the ankle boots of past seasons. Sometime referred to as sock boots depending on the style, these booties have a little bit of a twist. They are higher up the ankle, typically are made of a softer material (think velvet, silk, and suede) and have a blockier heel than past fads. See the photo above for some of the trending looks.
So how to make this fashion forward look a little more western? Well the obvious answer is to add leather, studs, and fringe! Here are our top picks. Some are more fashion forward than others, but no worries there’s plenty of western styles to love.
