Fall is finally here, and as fashion houses rock the runways this month, there is plenty of style inspiration to make a girl want to head to the mall ASAP with no budget in mind. Although having no budget is much more of a dream than a reality for most, that doesn’t mean you still can’t treat yourself to a few new fall favorites that will completely transform your summer wardrobe. Specifically speaking, there are plenty of fabulous footwear options that are sure to make any outfit feel autumn-appropriate, even if you haven’t gotten your hands on some of the hottest clothing trends yet.
To spice up your fall shoe collection, I gathered five must-have styles that are trending for this season. Not only are these looks fun and fresh, but they are actually wearable! Here’s what you should add to your closet this autumn.
If there is one fabric that’s having a moment this fall, it’s velvet. The ultra-luxe and rich texture of velvet will be clad on everything you wear this season. However, if you want to pay homage to the trend in a more subtle and everyday way, Huffington Post recommends casting your eyes towards some velvet boots. The key is to find some with a skinny ankle and a retro platform.
If you follow fashion at all, there’s no way you haven’t seen a ton of flatforms clogging up your social feeds. That’s because these low-key and cool slip-ons are casual enough for everyday wear, but they add just enough height to give your legs a little boost. PureWow says to stick with a neutral color and minimal embellishments to stay on-trend.
Over-the-knee boots made a big debut last fall, and now they’re even bigger and bolder than ever. Thigh-high boots are an absolute must for chic fall fashion this year, and you’d be crazy not to step into a pair. Just remember to make sure your outfit allows for the eye-catching boots, otherwise it can look a little too overwhelming.
Androgyny is a big-time coolness factor lately, and the best way to borrow from the boys is with a great pair of loafers. Like Lyst shows, there is a gamut of different loafer styles being offered from a wide array of footwear designers. So no matter your personal style, there’s a loafer out there to suit you. Pair them with a girly outfit or go for full-on masculinity; the possibilities are endless with these versatile shoes!
Do military-inspired combat boots ever really go out of style? With the saturation of grungy, ‘90s details overtaking our wardrobes, there’s no wonder combat boots make the perfect companions. Edgy but neutral enough to pair with lots of outfits, these shoes will complete your fall shoe collection.
