We get the same feeling when the clocks go back (and forward) each year as we do knowing a seasonal wardrobe switch—total confusion. Although it's roughly at the same time, we still never quite know when to get out the vacuum bags and stuff with bikinis and basket bags for fear we're waving goodbye to the sunshine (and linen dresses) too early.
Although it's technically still summer now, the world of fashion is always on fast forward. As fashion editors, if we aren't looking at upcoming collections, we're already trying to incorporate them into our wardrobes somehow. As they say, the early bird catches the worm, and at Who What Wear we're an extremely punctual lot. In fact, we pride ourselves on keeping you all up to date with the latest trends, It items and Instagram's finest cult buys as soon as we spot them.
This time, it's boots. Save your pedicure pennies and put them toward autumn's key boot styles—from Miu Miu's chunky Chelsea boots that'll take the place of your dad sandals to the Western knee-high boots you'll want to style with your summer dresses. These 16 pairs of perfect boots are the ones everyone is not only shopping now but also wearing now.
Lace-up boots, in general, are big news, but this particular Manu Atelier pair is the queen of all pairs.
