The Only 2020 Boot Trends I’m Wearing This Fall

Staying warm, cozy, and comfortable is the main strategy to fashionably surviving the next five to six months.

Summer came and went faster than any of us could have imagined, leaving us to fend for ourselves in the upcoming cold weather months. While everyday life slowly returns to normal, boot season is upon us and now is the perfect time to start shopping for the necessary footwear to complete our fall/winter wardrobes. As we begin to reappear on the outside, investing in boots that are versatile as much as they are practical is key when shopping for the latest trends.

While frigid temperatures lie ahead of us, staying warm, cozy, and comfortable is the main strategy to fashionably surviving the next five to six months.

Here are my favorite fashion-forward boot styles I intend to wear again and again all season long.

The tall slouchy boot, reminiscent of bold 80's era fashion, made its debut last year in the fall of 2019 and is sure to be all over our feeds yet again in 2020. With a relaxed yet voluminous feel of material gathered at the ankles, this boot is the chicest boot you'll slide into this cold-weather season. Paired with both a faux leather blazer and nude skirt topped with an all-white tube top for a not so casual first dinner date night look.

As charming as other boot styles may be, nothing compares to a python-embossed stiletto boot to complete your fall must-haves. Animal print is always a go-to when searching for the perfect winter boots, however, snakeskin is the latest trend in exotic prints. These electrifying bold yellow calf boots make all of my shoe dreams come true, including the not so high heel that makes them easier to wear all day long. Wearing a subtle pinstripe blazer jacket and high-waist leather shorts, this is a super chic outfit choice for a transitional summer-to-fall look.

chunky platform boots

The chunky platform sole is slowly stomping its way back into our lives while becoming one of the biggest boot trends on the rise for fall/winter 2020. Dr. Martens classic lace-up boots are one of a kind and known by many generations for its grunge aesthetic and youthful counterculture fashion appeal. With the ability to adapt to almost every outfit when paired, these boots are a staple for the cold weather months and will never go out of style. I wore my high-rise platform Doc Martens with a two-toned one-piece knit romper as well as a yellow blazer for a modern-yet-90s take on this chunky boot style.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Da’Vinchi has appeared in many television series such as All American and Grown-ish but it was his role in BMF as Terry Flenory that helped propel his career forward.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
