It’s no surprise that ankle boots are popular here at Travel Fashion Girl. Their stylish look and easy fit makes them a foolproof essential for the fall, and we’re here to round-up our favorites yet again. This time, we’re reviewing a trend that has no doubt taken the season by storm – sock booties!


Sock Booties

Written by: Sydney Woolery




Shop the pair above – another Target steal!


Style aside, these boots are highly packable and perfect for stowing away in a carry-on. Rather than having a rigid ankle shaft that takes up space in your luggage, sock booties are foldable and can fit right into a compact space (bonus – we tested a pair out in our own Compass Rose packing cubes and they worked like a charm!)

The low stacked heel of the Lorraine Microsuede Western Sock Bootie will make daytime sightseeing a breeze. Plus, it’s from Target. You gotta love cute boots on a budget!




Aerosoles Tall Grass Mid Calf Boot




When a shoe is from a reader favorite brand and rocks a travel friendly silhouette, it’s hard to go wrong. Such is the case for the tall Grass Mid Calf boot from Aerosoles.

Sleek and chic, these boots will take you from day to night with ease. Looks aside, they’re also equipped with a memory foam footbed and diamond flex soles.




Rockport Kimly Stretch Bootie Ankle Boot




Few items embody fall fashion better than a burgundy boot. With that said, show off your autumn color palette with this stunner from Rockport! Finish off the look with a cream sweater dress and a chai latte as you explore the leafy streets of Portland.




Steve Madden Remy Fashion Boot


Steve Madden


For the stylish traveler who loves a dramatic tall heel, look no further than Steve Madden’s Remy boot. This will bless your travel wardrobe with the packability of a sock boot and the fierceness of a tall block heel. We could see these working beautifully for a night out in London.




Naturalizer Rebecca Boot




Another darling option? The Rebecca boot from Naturalizer. Like the Remy, it comes equipped with a tall yet sturdy block heel that will withstand more than the average heel.

They’re versatile, they’re fabulous, and they’re Naturalizer, meaning your feet will actually be happy when wearing them. We would expect nothing less from another bonafide reader-favorite brand!
