Our Favorite Fall Shoe Trends This Year

You know fall is knocking on your door (and probably standing in your entryway) when it’s too cold to let your pretty pedicure have a say-so in your outfit. Not to worry. You’ll warm up to the season in no time with our fall footwear collection of soft suede booties, classic flats, pointy pumps and street-smart tennies.

Walk this way to check out our favorite new fall footwear.

The Modern Ballet Flat

Channel your inner Holly Golightly and slip on a pair of ballet flats. A classic closet staple, these sweet soles sport a thin heel, making them stylishly comfortable and perfect for bopping around town, to work, to dinner—really, pretty much anywhere. We love them paired with a mini skirt, short dress or capris to give the illusion of longer legs. For fall, look for suede or leather in autumnal hues and whimsical touches, such as scalloped edges.

The Timeless Loafer

Pop on a pair of preppy loafers and voilà, you have instant smart-casual outfit gratification. We’re loving the variety of prints, patterns and tasseled toppers appearing on well-heeled women everywhere this season. If you’re headed to the office, pair a pencil skirt with polished leather loafers. Girls’ night out? Mix it up, and go for an edgier vibe with ripped skinnies in a dark wash, a leather moto and a classic plaid loafer. Or kick back in boyfriend jeans and a white button-down.

The Classy Heel

Heels can turn a ho-hum look into a “Hello, wow!” ensemble. Pair a tailored LBD with an animal-print pump, and you can take a walk on the wild side without falling into the “What was she thinking?” black hole. If you’re not afraid of heights, a stiletto is a chic choice to wear with a pair of skinny jeans. Pick a vibrant shade, such as fuchsia, to call attention to the lovely long leg line you’ll be rocking.

The Beloved Ankle Bootie

The ever-versatile ankle bootie with its slew of different heel heights and toe box shapes is a must-have for fall. The beauty of this bootie is that it can literally go with just about any outfit. Generally, however, the higher the heel, the dressier the look. Team an A-line wool mini dress and opaque tights with a stiletto or pointed heel for a sleek, upscale vibe. We love to pair distressed denim with a low-heeled bootie in a fall-icious shade that whispers “you’ve got this.”

The Reworked Rain Boot

While practical, rain boots can also add panache to your wet weather wardrobe. This season we’re loving looks that are more or less a hybrid—take a traditional Wellie and cross it with a high-top tennis shoe, and you get the picture. These looks are cute enough to wear with a mini skirt and tights, low-key enough to pair with jeans and a slicker—yet still, offer plenty of puddle protection.

The Casual Kick (With Character)

Snazzy sneakers are making an appearance on streets everywhere. Whether embellished with studs, crystals or embroidery, these go-getters are a must-have for fall. We like them paired with flirty skirts as a sporty alternative to ballet flats or with jeans and a tee to add personality to an otherwise basic ensemble. Rule of thumb: Just. Have. Fun.
