Splurge v. Steal: Fall Boot Faceoff

Nothing says fall fashion like a fresh pair of boots. It's like the second I get a whiff of the season's first pumpkin spice latte there's sensory overload in my brain, with every messenger firing off one thought- BUY BOOTS! But here's the catch- boots can be expensive and this girl is on a budget. So the question becomes, how can you keep your ankles and calves happy while making sure to get the most sartorial bang for your buck? In my opinion, it's all about focusing not only on style, but also versatility and comfort, which for the sake of this post means black and with a sturdy heel. Boots like these can be used to upgrade so many looks, day or night, and can carry you all the way through winter. Now the problem is just deciding which one...

Black leather over-the-knee boots sound way too sexy for everyday life, but in a sleek, flat style the look is toned down and daytime appropriate.

This mod style is so on-trend and the block-style heels are comfortable enough for all-day wear.

Comfortable and tough with a touch of luxe, these boots would give any outfit an added dose of cool.

A preppy and polished take on the trendy Chelsea booty, the loafer style is a perfect nostalgic take on back-to-school fashion.
