Stacked heel

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

Lace-up

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.

Slouchy

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.

Faux suede, Express, $88; express.com.

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.

Leather and crepe, Ciao Bella, $99; piperlime.com.

Harness

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

Faux leather, Michael Antonio, $69; piperlime.com.

Riding

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.

Faux leather, Restricted, $80; kohls.com.
