While fall is certainly the season for tall boots, don’t plan on wearing them every day. This year, cleated sole platform shoes are taking the fashion world by storm. They’re clunky, edgy, and oh so sassy. You can wear them with leggings and vintage, boyfriend, or skinny jeans. These closed-toe shoes are our latest seasonal style buy pick, and we have a style for every personality type.

The texture on this bootie gives it a more grown-up look, allowing it to be paired with chinos or sleeker pants. The minimal cleated sole and formal heel make this the perfect shoe for anyone who isn’t ready for full-blown grunge. Pair this shoe with black skinny jeans, a heather grey chunky sweater, and a gold statement necklace. This outfit would go well with one of our favorite backpacks.

Remember when we said “full-blown grunge?” This is what we’re talking about. These boots are no-nonsense shoes for bold personalities. The thick heel, ribbed front, and matte black color make it ultra modern and perfect for nights out, as well as with baggy boyfriend jeans for a more casual outing.

When you can’t decide between the perfect neutral or solid black, just go with both! This pair can be worn with soft and subtle or dark and bold clothing because of its two-tone characteristic. We love the giant cleats on these heels, and they make perfect going out shoes. Our favorite look is with a cream long-sleeve dress that has gold embroidery or sequins. The cream color is a good balance between the tan and black.

You know how leather jackets just look better when they have more buckles? Well that’s the case with these shoes. The buckles add a different variety to the more simple boots shown above, and they allow for an open space to show off your favorite pair of embellished leggings. These booties look best with black, black, black, and more black. Make the buckles shine by not adding a lot of color to distract from them.

Heeled Lace-Up Boot

If you’re looking for a more subtle heel, then these are the boots for you. The lace-up detail gives this pair a more 90s, rocker chick vibe that fits well with jean jackets, flannels, and graphic tees.
