Go ahead — call us basic. We'll just be over here, waiting with bated breath, for the slightest drop in temperature, ready to pull out our chunky sweaters and jeans. The fact that every season comes with a valid excuse to upgrade our wardrobes doesn't feel too shabby either. But before fall fever commences, let's take a beat to review the best bootie trends of 2019.
This season, the supermodel-loved white boot trend is still going strong; while, a few timeless iterations of the classic Chelsea boot are being added to cart. There's even a few fierce steppers featuring a range of animal and reptile prints. Basically, (statement) bootie, (monochrome) bootie, (buckle) bootie rockin' everywhere (if you know, you know).
So, where's the best place to peruse them all? Enter: the shopping vortex that is Macy's. While the big-box retailer houses all different types of boots (knee-high, combat, rain, etc.), its ankle, or bootie, collection is just as exciting as the thought of drinking a pumpkin spice latte on a crisp autumn day. Oh, c'mon. You know you want one.

Animal print and fall go together like pumpkin spice and caffeine. Don't feel overwhelmed by this look — treat it like a neutral. You can wear it with anything, including denim jeans or a little black dress. The best part? These boots come in many of this season's current trends (read: white leather, patent leather, and more).
