One exciting part of fashion in the fall and winter is that all of the fabulous boot styles make their way into the department stores and online. Everyone knows, however, that a well-made designer boot can cost more than rent this month! Check out the styles below to rock this season’s best boot trends without going bankrupt.

Find deals on boots

You might think they don't exist, but from online stores like Zappos.com to discount retailers like Designer Shoe Warehouse, you can find trendy or classic boots on a budget. If you are ordering online, it is also a good idea to measure all parts of your leg (especially if you want a tall boot that fits over the calf; some boots fit really snug and some much looser). If you can only afford one pair this season, make sure it is one that is versatile, like a classic riding boot that can be worn with pants or skirts.

Also, to make your boots last for years to come, be sure to pick styles that are not a passing fad (think pink fur, over-the-top buckles, etc.) but rather more timeless (brown or black, mid to low heel). You can also make your boots last by storing them correctly in the off-season with boot shapers and a boot box.

Riding boot

Riding high

A classic riding boot looks sophisticated and comfortable at the same time. Try a pair like these Chocolate Run Boots (modcloth, $58). The lace up detail and rich color might make you feel like you are riding horses in the countryside of England, not walking to work in Manhattan.

Cowboy boots

Cowboy cool

Cowboy boots never seem to go out of style and are great with jeans or even the right skirt. Pair short ones with skinny jeans (like these women’s Pixie Western Boots, payless.com, $45) or tall ones like these Unlisted Shoes, Country Club Tall ( macys.com, $89) with a longer skirt or under boot cut jeans.

Motorcycle chic

Pair your favorite motorcycle jacket with comfortable, yet edgy chic motorcycle boots like these distressed faux leather boots from Madden Girl (dsw.com, $60). From everyday use to even a night out, these tough shoes can make you a fashionista that no one will mess with!
