Best Dress Boots for Fall 2013

The perfect finishing touch to any outfit this season, fall’s ruggedly handsome dress boots pay homage to classic footwear styles ranging from the brogue to cap-toe as well as the casual styles, palettes and treads of last year’s moc, hiking and duck style boots. Here, 10 exceptional styles that work just as well with a suit trouser as any other casual pant and accompanying outerwear, and look the best when styled with a little attitude: simply roll up the cuffs of your pants or tuck them in. For an edgier look, try pairing a lighter colored boot, say one in cognac, with your darkest denim.
