Whether tall and slouchy or short and structured, this season has you (and your feet) covered with the hottest fall 2011 boot trends — from edgy ankle wedges and menswear-inspired lace-ups to traditional stacked leather heels and classic riding boots.

Stacked heel

The '70s reign with this easy-to-strut-in knee-high style. Try them with leggings or a midcalf skirt.

Complement fall's menswear styles with a heeled or platform style. Pair them with a jacket and trousers for the office and with jeans on the weekend.

Those searching for perfect off-duty boots can relax. Make sure to wear these with bare legs or fitted pants — because baggy with slouchy is more hobo than boho.

Ankle wedge

Favored by fashion-forward women, this short version is modern and edgy. Balance the heavy shoe by aiming for a sleek, lean silhouette.

Rock out in skinny jeans and one of these strappy models. Avoid combining with a motorcycle jacket — too many buckles.

They don't come more classic than this. Black or brown equestrian boots will never, ever go out of style. They're great with everything from flirty dresses to slick trousers.
