Last fall may have been all about combat boots, but there’s a new ankle boot trend in town, and it’s actually not new at all—but it’s back. Based on the F/W 18 runways and the market that’s already emerging, wearing Western ankle boots with jeans will be the coolest combo this fall. The Western trend, in general, completely dominated on the runways of Isabel Marant, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and many more, and footwear played a big role in that.
The new cowgirl aesthetic is decidedly more sophisticated than costumey, but if you’re not entirely sold, the easiest way to embrace it is to get yourself a pair of the many Western ankle boots currently on the market, throw on your favorite pair of jeans, and call it a day. And you don’t necessarily need a runway budget to do that. Among the options below, you’ll find Prada and Chloé, but you’ll also find Topshop and ASOS. So if you want to get a head start on the It ankle boot style of fall 2018, read on to shop our stylish picks.
