If you didn't pick up a pair this spring, it is definitely time to invest in a sturdy low-boot for fall. We'd recommend one with a wear-it-everywhere wedge heel, and ideally some chunky embellishments. This pair by We Who See from Urban Outfitters, for example, is sheer perfection.
The strappy belted heel really gives it a tough vibe, though the dark black sueded also keeps it fancy enough to pair with cocktail dresses. Of course, best of all, it's only $88 -- a serious steal, considering how much mileage this one boot could get in any wardrobe.
