I’m declaring ankle boots (aka booties) the most versatile footwear option for fall. You can wear them with cuffed boyfriend jeans, skirts, dresses, skinny jeans tucked in, leggings; you name it.  Here are some of my favorites:

For a neutral look with a perfect heel height, these Lucca boots by Sam Edelman fit the bill.  Also available in black.lucca boot piperlime

Dress things up a bit with this Dolly boot from Aldo. Bonus – great price!black dolly boot aldo

If you want an ankle boot that makes a statement, choose one with a pattern, like this Acute Dogtooth Monk boot (say that 3 times fast!) from Topshop.

The faux suede booties below from Forever 21 look almost exactly like this pair from Rag & Bone that sell for $495. At $36, these booties are a steal!

I usually reserve sweatshirts for days I’m bumming around the house, running errands or heading to the stadium to support one of my favorite sports teams.  But this fall the average sweatshirt has been kicked up a few notches.  Now you can be comfy and stylish at the same time.  Wear it with jeans for a casual look or pair it with a black blazer for a night out.  Here are a few that I’ve got my eye on:

This Jeweled Chandelier sweatshirt from J. Crew is so popular that it’s on back order until late November.  Order now for Christmas.
