We’ve officially entered boot season, and fresh trends abound, from bold colors (stark white and red) to fun silhouettes (cowboy and slouchy styles). We plan to give them all a try, but when it comes to teaming them with one of our fall wardrobe go-tos—leggings—things get a bit tricky. Especially one particular style that happens to be huge this season: sock boots. Womp, womp. The combination of stretch on stretch makes for an unflattering and awkward fit on most body types—it’s a no-go in our book. The good news? Tons of other boots look great with leggings, from over-the-knee to combat. Ahead, shop our edit, starting at just $60. As for your sock boots, go ahead and reserve them for denim, dresses and skirts instead.
