Everybody lives for fall. And with fashion month under way, it’s customary for all eyes to be looking east just to catch a glimpse of what cold-weather threads fashion girls and editors are wearing outside the tents. But what if you’re a resident of the warmer coast and a die-hard fan of fall? Sure, lighter layers are a prerequisite, and if you’re caught leaving the house without a coat on, the only thing at risk of freezing, if anything, is your smartphone. But one way to get your wardrobe feeling ready for fall is by snagging a great pair of boots. Today, four L.A.-based bloggers show you how their favourite SOREL boots beat the heat.

“Living in L.A., you really appreciate any weather below 70 degrees, because for us, that’s fall! Wearing layers and boots are my go-to and what I plan on wearing all season long.”
“I'm super into these boots from SOREL because they are waterproof and very cool-looking, an awesome hybrid between a hiking boot and a stylish wedge.”
“I paired them with cropped skinny jeans, a denim top, and a light trench for a fall look that can take me from meetings to evening cocktails. YAY fall fashion!”
“I’m kind of jealous of you New Yorkers and San Franciscans, where fall layering is actually a thing. You get to kick it up in cosy boots and fur-lined jackets that would just get weird side-eyes here.”
“Jealousy aside, I can tell you how I dress for a lighthearted fall in Los Angeles. Here I took a barely there black romper, and I mimicked the layering effect with a giant wool scarf that can double as a poncho and triple as a comfy blanket.”
“Fall season is boot season, so I took out my new Major Low Premium ankle booties from SOREL that’ll look killer whether it’s hot, cold, or perfectly in between. Not only do these booties dress up any outfit, but their waterproof leather will also protect from the elements, all in the name of staying chic and comfortable.”
“One of my favourite things about living in Newport is the changing of the seasons, and in my opinion, the best seasonal transition is summer to fall. Still warm enough for light layers and breezy dresses, but the air is crisp and dry.”
“I love these boots from SOREL for fall because they look amazing, but they also mean business. Completely waterproof and super comfortable, they’re perfect for a brunch date dressed up with a ’70s-style wrap dress or casual with ripped jeans and a light sweater.”
“There’s just something about fall, right?! Everything is fresh, and I get excited to try new things, fill my home with great-smelling candles, and sip on warm drinks all day. One other exciting reason, ingrained since grade school, is a new fall wardrobe! If you were like me, back-to-school shopping was an event. I’d score four to five new outfits in one day and come home feeling like a million bucks."
"These SOREL Out N About boots are not only functional (super comfortable, waterproof on rainy days and great quality), but they’re also fun to style for a carefree on-the-go look."
"I love how the boots come just above the ankle. They’re great worn with cutoff jeans like these, and pairing them with a long trench coat really pulls it all together.”
