With the warm weather cooling down, it’s time to put away your tank tops, shorts, and sandals.

When you think about it, many of us haven't shopped for fall clothing in a while—almost two years. Last November, we were quarantined at home wishing we could go out and bring in the holidays with our friends; but alas, COVID-19 had other plans and kept most of us sheltered-in-place.

Since the world has reopened, it's time we update our wardrobe for the season. There's no better place to start than with footwear, and nothing screams fall more than boots. Whether they're thigh-highs or ankle boots, they're good for chilly days—and nights. They go perfectly with almost any piece of clothing in your closet. They are work appropriate; yet, still give you some flair. And, they'll keep your legs stylishly warm and cute when you dare to go bare.

From chunky lug-soles to gilded-heeled thigh highs, we've got a pair that will speak to your sole.

Named after celebrity stylist Zerina Akers, these gold heel boots take the thigh-high to a new level.
