REBOOT THE BOOT

It’s officially closed-toe season and the perfect time to add a fresh pair of boots into the rotation. Our fashion gurus at Barneys New York rounded up the seven must-have trends to slip on this fall. From sleek white booties to luxe, brocade details, there’s a shoe to fit every vibe and add style to every step.

WESTERN

The modern cowboy boot adds a hint of chic ruggedness to any outfit. No longer just a ranch shoe, this boot takes to the city streets when paired with tailored pieces like a suit. Detailed topstitching, a Cuban heel or a sleek pointy toe with a metal accent a reveal careful craftsmanship.

TEXTURED SNAKESKIN

Surprisingly versatile, snakeskin feels especially edgy and fresh this season, most notably in a bold color. For a bigger statement, try a two-tone bootie or even a multicolored option for a new take on the bold texture.

SLEEK WHITE

The white boot trend isn’t going anywhere. We love the various silhouettes, especially with clean, minimal detailing. Elevate your denim with a simple pointed toe, or dare to add another texture to your collection with an embossed version.

SHEARLING HIKER

Shearling and faux fur welcome the colder seasons with both warmth and style. Embrace a lug sole when trekking through the fallen leaves, and try a fun pair like these red velvet Mr. & Mrs. Italy boots to add a pop of color.

KNEE-HIGH

While a thigh-high boot is sexy, there is a quieter appeal to a boot that just hits at the knee. A thicker heel makes it feel classic, and the look is undeniably versatile, pairing well with a minidress or skirts.

BROCADE

In velvet, gold embroidery and rich color, there’s something wonderfully luxe about an embroidered shoe. Let your boots be the focus of your look, whether as a complement to monochrome or a way to mix prints.

THE NEW COMBAT

Say goodbye to simple black combat boots. This season, the beloved style is updated with desert tones, studs, plaid patterns and quilted details that are anything but boring and feel a little more elevated.
