Boots Aren't a Trend

A couple days ago I got into a conversation on Twitter about fall fashion trends, and of course shoes came up.
Classic black ankle boot. 

Apparently the fashion magazines (which I have fallen hopelessly behind on) are saying ankle boots are a big trend for fall. Which is great and all, but I'm pretty sure that ankle boots are a trend every fall. In fact, I'm going to take it a step further and say that in reality, they're not a trend at all, but simply a wardrobe staple. Kind of like pants.

You have pants and skirts, just like you have boots and sandals. Some of them just happen to be ankle boots, which are most appropriately worn when it's not 100 freaking degrees out. So in fall.

This is all a shocking revelation, I'm sure.

It's pretty safe to say if you have ankle boots from last season, they're still good this year. Just like the ones you buy this year will still be good next year. Even if they have studs or buckles, or even fringe,
Miu Miu burgundy perfection.
year after year it's the same kind of thing. Leather, ankle high, varying color and heel height, it's all available, and it's in fashion year after year.

They're also one of the most versatile shoes, and can be worn with anything from skirts and dresses to pants, and even shorts in the late spring.

They may not be the next big trend, but I'll go for classic over trendy any day.
