More from our fall fashion shoot for our Fall issue!

I feature 15 fashion must haves for the fall in our Autumn Spice issue, and named 4 pairs of shoes to wear this fall, and tall boots are the best choice, because they will take you through the winter too. I’m excited for cooler days – and for tall boot season to be back!

My models are Kayla Short of Short Presents and Isabella Presnal, A Vlogging Girl, and we put together outfits that fit with the black ENJOY LIFE tassel diffuser necklace.

7 Awesome boot styles to choose from

Shorter booties are great too, but honestly, good looking long leather boots make a style statement, elevate every outfit, and go from fall to winter. Here are seven great styles and many of them work for wider calf size. As a former dancer, my calves are still pretty muscular, so I know how difficult it is to find boots that fit.

1. The Børn ‘Poly’ Riding Booticon (Was: $239.95 Now: $179.90) come both regular and wide calf. Comes in four different colors. Great find for the low sale price!

2. ECCO ‘Shape 25’ Knee High Zip Boot icon ($299.95) are my top pick. I had an older model of ECCO boots, and liked them so much and wore all the time, that I bought the same pair (on sale!) to wait for this winter!

3. Flat Riding Boots (Melissa Button Extended Calf) icon ($368) The favorite Frye style just got even more relaxed in this extended calf edition of the popular Melissa button boot. They are dressy enough to make your work calendar and perfect for after hours, with stylish, impeccably crafted comfort.

4. SPLURGE: If you love Frye, you will love the Valerie Shearling boots by Frye icon – they are a splurge though for $598.

5. For edgier look, also check out the Devon belted boots icon ($298).

6. BUDGET CHOICE: For classic riding boot with wide-calf, check out the INC International Concepts Women’s Fedee Wide-Calf Tall Bootsicon for $179.50.

7. If you are looking for basic leather riding boots on a budget, Tommy Hilfiger is pretty good choice. I’ve had a few pairs of Tommy Hilfiger boots for everyday use. I highly recommend paying more for better quality for some of the boots, it’s worth it, but if you want to stay in budget, my pick would be the Tommy Hilfiger Silvana Wide-Calf Riding Bootsicon, normally $129, now on sale for $109.99 (Sale ends 10/30/16) GET EXTRA 15% OFF CODE: BDAY .

  1. AH! I adore that you called out the “wide calf”problem! My step mom has huge calf muscles! They are gorgeous, but she struggles something fierce with finding boots. I’m going to share this with her. She will love this!
