As a fashion editor, I'm acutely aware of all the current trends on the scene and have basically made it a pastime of mine to uncover emerging micro-trends about to make it big next. Since I spend so much of my time trendspotting and reporting on the styles that are in and out, I tend to rack up a massive shopping list for all the holes in my own closet. Now that boot season is upon us, I've started a running tab of all the specific boots I'm itching to add to my wardrobe to nail each of the overarching shoe trends I'm seeing.
Since I love an affordable find (especially an affordable shoe find), I decided to curate my list of the cheap, trendy boots I have my eye on right now. On my list are Topshop's square-toes, H&M's lug-sole boots, and Mango's snake print boots (just to name a few) that nail each of the larger shoe trends I want to test out myself. I'm a trend-minded shopper but also a picky fashion editor, so each of the boots you're about to discover here has been chosen with care for its heel shape, style, color, and of course, price (did I mention they're all under $200?). With that in mind, keep scrolling to shop my favorite boot picks.
