There's no doubt that Gen Z is poised to solidify its Hollywood takeover any minute now. For starters, they've got 25-year-old Zendaya headlining blockbuster films, 21-year-old Yara Shahidi forming her own kind of activism, and 21-year-old Addison Rae successfully crossing over from TikTok influencer to bona fide celebrity. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

What do all of these Gen Zers have in common? A great sense of style, of course. Below, I've rounded up five boot trends that are common themes among the youngsters, including Olivia Rodrigo, Willow Smith, Lily-Rose Depp, our October 2020 cover star Emma Chamberlain, and more. Plus, shop the editor-approved fall boots that align with each trend.
