Ask the Edit: Casual Boots for Fall

Oct 2, 2018

Summer has officially ended.  It’s time to talk about fall footwear.  Because boots are the best part of fall fashion.

Hi Abra,

It’s not really fall weather in Maryland yet, but I’m thinking about boots anyway.  Can you help me find a pair of casual ankle boots with a 3″ heel or less?  Something brown?  Cognac, taupe, whatever?  I want to spend under-$100.  I need to spend under-$175, non-negotiable.

The blog has been so good recently.  I hope it’s because you’re feeling better.  Sincerely, Gretchen

Thanks for the good thoughts.  I am feeling better.  It was a really rocky six months, but things are definitely looking up.

Tall boots aren’t as popular as they once were, but I still like mine.  Though, I do find myself wearing my ankle boots more.  An ankle boot with a bit of a heel is a great piece for fall.

I was able to find a lot of lovely brown choices in a variety of under-3″ heel heights.  So let’s help you find the right pair; here are some great options.

Michael Kors Margaret Booties ($165)

Lyriq Ankle Boot ($99)

Franco Sarto Devon Booties ($139)

Macy’s is offering 30% off one pair of select shoes; 40% off of two pair.  This pair is included.  As is the next one.

Aqua College Nancy Waterproof Booties ($150)

Hello, waterproof?!?!

Steve Madden Nyna Boot ($99)

This also comes in a fabulous black and a snakeskin.

Rhilynn Ankle Boot ($99)

    Can we talk about good ways way to style pants and ankle boots? Cuffed? Hemmed? I think Abra May have posted before that she cuffs her pants on the “inside,” if that makes sense? Help!

    Love those Steve Madden booties! I have been on the hunt for a pair of side cut out booties!

  5. Diane says:

    I’d love to see posts on styling boots in general, ankle boots for work, and outfits where tall boots still work!

    These are more on the flat side rather than heeled, but I’ve been drooling over them the last few weeks. https://www.sperry.com/en/maya-belle-leather-chelsea/32545W.html?dwvar_32545W_color=STS82011#cgid=women-shoes-boots&start=1
