Boot season is officially upon us, so we found the right budget-friendly pairs to help you and your checkbook transition with ease. Since boots are so versatile they can be worn throughout the winter and spring, then again in the fall — making for a great staple in your closet. From over the knee boots to animal prints, read on for a range of winter-friendly styles with prices starting as low as $20.

Ankle Boots for Women

1. Old Navy Faux-Suede Kitten-Heel Booties

A great alternative to heels, these kitten-heeled booties from Old Navy are dressy enough to be worn with skirts and wide-leg pants for the office, but comfy enough for long commutes. They're also available in taupe and leopard.

2. A New Day Ellie Chelsea Booties

The Chelsea boot is a fall staple and this budget-friendly take from Target brand A New Day rivals some of the designer styles we've seen on the market. Scoop it up in one of three shades and finishes.

3. Circus by Sam Edelman Hadden Ankle Boots

Animal prints are one of this season's biggest shoe trends, with snakeskin slithering onto the scene. Get the look with this pair from Circus by Sam Edelman, which features a sleek design and comes in a range of color, pattern and fabric combos.

Knee-High Boots for Women

1. Kelly & Katie Agrafina Boot

This faux suede boot from Kelly & Katie can be worn at the knee or slouched down for custom height and fit. The style is also available in a faux leather version.

2. Lucky Brand Prouska Suede Boot

Marked down from over $200, these pointy-toe, wooden-heel boots will elevate any look in a matter of minutes. Available in two shades, we especially like them with dark-washed denim and flowy dresses.

3. Universal Thread Women's Brielle Microsuede Riding Boots

These classic boots will help you transform any outfit. They're available in two different shades, have a 1.5-inch block heel to add a little extra height and they're 30% off!

Over-the-knee Boots for Women

1. Steve Madden Georgette Over-the-Knee Boots

Ease into over-the-knee boots with this block-heel design from Steve Madden. Also available in dark gray, they're soft enough to be worn over bare legs and manage to stay put throughout the day.

2. Brinley Co. Extra Wide Calf Over-the-Knee Boots

Stack up with these slouchy boots from Brinley Co., which feature a more pronounced block heel for reaching new, yet still comfy, heights. They come in five different colors, so you won't have a problem finding one to fit your style.
