It's a bit of an oxymoron: open-toe boots. We wait for warm weather to welcome one trend and the other doesn't emerge until the temperatures drop. Bringing them together might make as much sense as popsicles at the North Pole but that won't stop us from slipping them on this fall.
If you haven't fully warmed up to the concept, consider starting with an understated style in black. These booties from Giuseppe Zanotti let you whisper the trend rather than shout it to the world.
Once you feel comfortable with the look, graduate to a boot that fights for attention like this design from Moschino Cheap & Chic. The plum shade and big bows say it all.
Only the brave will go the route of these Nina lace up boots from Bebe. Paired with a sweater dress and a cropped jacket, they put the bark in an already vicious bite.
