After months of #freetheankle footwear, we're ready to walk to a different (read: warmer) beat for the chilly months ahead. While fall's funky flats and heels are tempting, our first order of business is finding our obligatory fall boot lineup. But deciding on leather versus suede, or plum versus cognac, is only half the battle — the real fun is figuring out what outfits to break them in with.
To offer a bit of inspiration, we scouted the latest footwear trends with Frye and mapped out perfect ensembles to match each of 'em. Drawn to this season's updated combat boot? Try a chic dress pairing that'll tone down the shoe's edge. Or if you're stepping into the low-riding Western boot, mix in '70s pieces like flare corduroys and tassel fringe to own that quintessential vintage vibe. Get ready to reconnect with fall's heavy steppers — old friends, we've missed you.
