Boots are a must-have for the fall and winter seasons, and this year the classic ankle boot is receiving a fresh, sometimes sparkling, update. The standard black bootie gets traded in this autumn for the next shiny object, metallic ankle boots — by far the biggest bootie trend this year — as well as one of the season’s most coveted fabrics, luxe velvet.

It’s easy to think these show-stopping styles, often spotted on our favorite Los Angeles and New York City-based celebrities and stylemakers, may pose some challenges when it comes to everyday wear, but these bold booties are more versatile than one might think. Whether silvery and sparkly metallic or eye-catching crushed velvet, these boots look great from everything with cropped pants and a slimming, tailored blazer, to enhancing a classic T-shirt-and-jeans combo.

No matter how you rock them, statement booties will be sure to add pizazz and eye-catching appeal to your outfit. These bold looks will step-up your street style game and are guaranteed to turn heads, while also keeping you grounded.
