These are the top boots you need to know about this fall

It's time to start thinking about one of the most important fall fashion essentials: boots! But with so many different styles to choose from, which pair should you invest in? TODAY Style has done all the legwork and found some of the best boots for fall below.

And if you're in the market for more fall shoes, we've got a list of some of the hottest trends to look out for.

Over-the-Knee Boots

So many women are afraid to try an over-the-knee boot, so here are some of the best tips for beginners.

  1. Stick to a neutral color — think black, brown or gray.
  2. Don’t do a high heel the first time around.
  3. Make sure if you’re wearing them with a dress or skirt and there is only one inch of skin showing (if any) between the end of the boot and the bottom of your clothing. And if pairing with pants, make sure they’re a legging or jegging because the last thing you want is to have fabric bunching by the top of the boot.

If you're so inclined to give the "lampshading" trend a try, these are the boots you'll need.

Chelsea Boots

The Chelsea boot is essentially an ankle boot that fits super tight with elastic paneling on both sides. Most of the time they also have a small loop at the back of the boot to help pull it on. These boots can be worn with anything from jeans to skirts to dresses. Their versatility and comfort (these tend to be a flat boot) make them another fall must-have.
