With fall just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what pieces to incorporate into your current style to transition into the cooler season. While many trusty staples can be mixed and matched, there are some summer items that will need to be retired pretty soon, like overly summery sandals.
Although there have been plenty of stylish summer sandals to come of this season, they are quickly becoming a little out-of-season as nightly temperatures start to drop. Instead of wearing your warm-weather shoes to death, why not take a look at some of the trending fall footwear styles that are sure to give your outfits a whole new pep in their step?
First, there’s the lace-up flat. It’s the perfect transition shoe because it combines one of the most popular shoe features of late (lace-up straps), but it offers just a little more seasonal coverage. Mode says it’s the hottest shoe trend to take you into fall, so don’t waste too much time finding a pair!
Another trend in fall footwear is the interesting, yet totally chic, slip-on flat mule. It’s like a mix between the loafer and ballet flat. What makes this style so great is its casual coolness. According to Lyst, these are the new flats on the block, so these are the shoes to pursue if you like being the first one to wear a trend.
And if you’re looking for some seasonal polish on your workwear wardrobe, the pointy-toe heel is your best bet. Feminine yet not too overbearing, this style has made a huge comeback in the past year, and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. InStyle suggests some cropped cigarette pants or wide-leg trousers to pair with these sophisticated shoes.
