If you buy only one pair of boots this fall, consider knee-highs. While ankle booties and over-the-knee styles have reigned supreme the past few seasons, this autumn it's all about a classic look. Knee-high boots couldn't be easier to wear — they look fabulous with jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses...basically everything. Have fun with the trend; rock some riding boots or go more rugged, with a lug sole.

No need to spend hundreds on gorgeous, wear-everywhere boots — just take this $45 pair from Kensie. Plenty of moto-inspired details, like vintagey buckles and straps at the ankle and shaft, abound. And the flattering slouchy silhouette looks great with classic blue jeans. They're worn-in on purpose — that burnished faux leather is a dream. Choose from black and dark brown.

Spending a little more also means saving more — like with this pair! The show-stopping Blondo boots are 60 percent off, making them the ultimate score. No need to waterproof these babies once they arrive — they're already treated. And the sturdy block heel makes them perfect for traipsing around town, even on iffy-weather days. Available in three stunning tones: tan, chocolate brown and black.

Polished and refined, these chic boots from Tommy Hilfiger have all the telltale markings of a classic. The understated buckle lends an elegant touch at the heel; the block-y heel keeps you steady on your feet. Available in black and espresso.

There's an art to looking "effortlessly casual," but these boots make it easy. The rust-colored beauties are naturally distressed at the heel and toe — think of them like a pair of vintage boots, minus the questionable smell. A corset-style lace-up back lets you easily adjust them to fit your calves.
