It’s the most wonderful time of the year, folks. No, not the holidays; it’s boot season. While Chelsea and riding boots will never go out of style, it's always a good idea to brush up on the year’s biggest trends—especially when you can try them out at a price point that works for your budget. Happy shopping!

Slouchy

The ‘80s are back, baby. This artfully rumpled silhouette adds gorgeous texture to any outfit, but we particularly love it peeking out from underneath a midi skirt.

Get the look: Free People ($188); Splendid ($228); Aquazzura ($1,195)

Combat

This edgy style is surprisingly versatile. Worn with an all-black ensemble, it’s punk chic. But paired with a floaty floral dress? It creates a really cool masculine-feminine contrast. If you still think it’s too Courtney Love for your taste, consider that even Kate Middleton is on board.

Get the look: MIA ($80); Dr. Martens ($140); Common Projects ($693)

Lace-Up

This Victorian-esque trend can actually read thoroughly modern, depending on the pair you choose. The one above, for example, feels utterly contemporary thanks to a block heel and square toe (the latter of which is also very “in” this season).

Get the look: Jeffrey Campbell ($185); Schutz ($255); Joie ($378)

White

With a low to medium heel, these shoes look fashion-y but are surprisingly practical: They’re easy to walk in, flattering—especially with a pointed toe—and, best of all, they work with everything from jeans to miniskirts to maxi dresses.

Get the look: Marc Fisher LTD ($180); Vince ($395); Stuart Weitzman ($550)

Snakeskin

Just like leopard print, snakeskin can act as a neutral, meaning it plays well with almost every color in your closet. However, this slick skin is slightly less expected (and much less overplayed) than its feline cousin.

Get the look: Franco Sarto ($110); Steve Madden ($170); Alice + Olivia ($450)

Cowboy

Yes, this Western-inspired style is still cool. This season, consider an updated take on the look by trying out unexpected colors, silhouettes and embellishments. Baby pink? Yes, please. All over studs? Oh yeah. (Psst…here’s how to make the trend work for any style.)

Get the look: Sam Edelman ($200); Jeffrey Campbell ($215); Sigerson Morrison ($395)
