Listen, summer. You've been amazing, as always. But despite how fulfilling the long beach days, short starry nights, and various heat waves have been, fashion girls everywhere are finally ready to reunite with crisp denim, plush scarves, and structured jackets that comprise fall fashion. Aside from the return of heart-warming beverages and your favorite spooky flicks, another reason to love autumn is the abundance of footwear options that crop up on the sidewalks like clockwork. Exhibit A: Tracee Ellis Ross' snake-print boots, which lent a touch of seasonal edge to the actor's latest OOTD.
The style icon took to Instagram in a minty green maxi dress on Sat., basking in the sun for the scroll-stopping snap that might convince you to bust out your ankle boots prior to the fall equinox on Sept. 23. It seems as though Ross is still hanging onto summer (it's still nearly 90 degrees in Los Angeles, so no surprise there), but the comedian is clearly at least dipping her toes in the season ahead with the chic footwear choice.
Ahead of an appearance with the rest of the Blackish cast at Disney's D23 biennial exposition event, Ross shared the statement look with her 6.8M followers, donning the colorful camisole dress, corn rows and a coral matte lip.
You probably witnessed the animal print trend going wild last fall and winter, with everyone from Kendall Jenner to Priyanka Chopra opting for snake-effect booties for a western-inspired flair. And if the fashion set has anything to do with it, the jungle-inspired trend isn't taking a backseat for the season ahead. Whether you're wearing distressed denim or a slip dress, the celebrity-approved staple lends immediate cool-girl points to so many looks. Luckily, there's a great range of options across the web, but start with The Zoe Report's selection of the boot style that keeps on giving, below.
