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.

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
