For any shoe-crazed gal, the most exciting part of fall is the sound of leaves crunching under a beautiful pair of knee-high, leather riding boots. Or maybe it’s finding the perfect suede booties to match your Thanksgiving outfit? Apple picking in your favorite flannel and lace-up combat boots? There are too many boot-iful fall moments to choose from, and with Fall 2013’s trendy new lineup, the decision is only getting harder.

On the 2013 runway, models strutted their stuff in maroon Belstaff leather boots. The unique color is perfect for the girl who already has a wide collection of boots and wants something that will stand out. The deep maroon will pair nicely with fall neutrals and can finish off the perfect holiday outfit in winter.

If you’ve got animal instincts, you’ll get jungle fever over DKNY’s leopard ankle boots. Leopard is a classic look that never goes out of style and is particularly fashionable in the colder months. You’ll be the cat’s meow when you pair these boots with black tights and a mini dress. If you’ve really got a penchant for our furry friends, check out Fendi’s fur ankle boots. They’re sure to keep you cozy in a coat of raccoon fur and suede.

For the fashionista who is not faint of heart, the bold look of over-the-knee boots is just for you. Ralph Lauren’s Harrah boot in black has sexy style that will carry from day to night with ease. Wear them with tights and an over-sized sweater for a casual feel, then spice them up in a miniskirt for a night out. No matter how you wear them, your legs are guaranteed to look divine, darling.

Other trends that graced the runways were patterned and cutout boots like Tibi’s Perla boot in Black Multi, which combines both trends in a sexy ankle boot. Pointed toes and metallic are also hot for fall as many designers featured the styles in every boot from ankle to thigh-highs.

 

 

2013 Top-Layer Trends

Fall fashion is all about layering and the 2013 runways were stacked with hot, top-layer trends.

Here are our favorites for the season.

One part cozy and one part quirky, the graphic pullover is an ode to the 70s, and we are stoked for its comeback. A graphic pullover is not your average sweater. It has flair in the form of funky designs and cool images. Floral designs and sharp geometrics stand out as leading trends, but don’t forget the ever-popular Aztec patterns. Kittens and Christmas trees, however, are best left for holiday parties. Since it’s a retro trend, try your luck at thrift stores to find a vintage gem.

Fall and cardigans go together like peas and carrots. Grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte and head to the football game in an oversized cardigan—another hot 2013 trend. Extra-long and a little bit baggy, the oversized cardigan is the perfect top layer to any casual outfit. Look for one with a fun accent, like different colored pockets or elbow patches. Pair with your favorite jeans and Converse Chucks to complete the cozy chic look.

For the workplace, get down to business in a tuxedo-style blazer. Sleek, sexy and professional, the tuxedo blazer is an autumn accent that is sure to turn heads. Layer over a fitted dress with tall black booties for the office, or throw over top a graphic white tee and distressed jeans for a casual weekend look.

Fall has an on-again, off-again relationship with military-inspired clothing, and this year, it is definitely on! Runways were once again filled with camo prints and army green. Salute this style with camo anything topped off with camel and olive accents. The headliner for this trend is the baggy camo jacket. For a chic twist, wear it with black stilettos and a sock bun.
