It's time to pack away the sandals and bring out the boots. That's right, fall is here and with it comes some great new "it" fashions for the season.
Chassie Post, lifestyle editor at Gilt.com, visited TODAY Monday to take us through this season's must-haves and tell us how to wear them for maximum impact.
All things '70s are having a huge comeback and we're loving the return of the block heel. Not only does the chunkier heel look fresh, it's also easier and more comfortable to walk on. Add some edge by picking a trendy lace-up version.

'Tis the season for extremes, so why not try some thigh-high boots? The trick is to look for a silhouette that is very fitted to the leg — a hallmark of more expensive OTK boots . And to keep the look more classy and less "Pretty Woman," show just a hint of skin between your skirt and the boot. Or, take it to the next level with a fun, patchwork pair!

This seasons, it feels like designers were inspired by Chewbacca, cavemen and possibly even the Muppets. That's right, it's all about faux fur and fuzzy details. Just how fun do pom-poms make a simple flat? And party heels become even more fun with a neon fur accessory.

Channel your inner Bianca Jagger and imagine you're dancing on the glamorous dance floors of Studio 54 — it's all about silver sandals, metallics and fringe. For a fun take on the trend, pair with a simple pair of jeans and nail a downtown-chic vibe.
