It’s finally starting to feel more like fall, which means it’s time to trade all your sandals for boots or pumps. Although there’s typically one shoe style that takes the cake every season, I’m loving so many styles for fall right now – and it’s so hard to narrow down my favorites to just one. Shoes have always been an addiction of mine because they’re the easiest way to freshen up your wardrobe for any season. The right pair can top off a date night look and pull you together for the office. And the best part is, there are so many affordable styles you can get your hands on. I wanted to put together this fall shoe guide and break down the season’s top styles. Keep scrolling to see my favorite picks!

Over The Knee Boots
Over-the-knee boots have been a staple in my fall wardrobe for years now, and I always get a lot of wear out of them during fall and winter. I’ll pair them with sweater dresses and denim on any given day and they always pull my outfit together. You guys already know that Stuart Weitzman makes the best pairs (full review here). Luckily, you can save 25% off on them right now with the Bloomingdales Friends & Family sale.
Knee High Boots
There are so many mini trends within the knee high boots category – and I am loving them all. From stark white boots to snake skin and croc-embossed styles, your options for finding the best pair are endless. They look amazing over skinny jeans, paired with a mini, or pulled underneath a maxi skirt. You can create so many different outfit combinations with this one boot.
Booties will always be a wardrobe staple, and I tend to favor pointed toe styles for a dressier vibe. If you’re looking for some upgraded touches to give your shoe wardrobe a little refresh, try a square toe silhouette or a Victorian lace-up bootie.

I’ve spoken about combat boots so many times on the blog already, and it continues to be one of my favorite trends this season. I’m all for mixing different aesthetics, like a feminine skirt with edgy boots or an oversized sweater with leather leggings. I just love how combat boots add the perfect amount of contrast to any feminine fall outfit.

Shearling shoes are making a comeback this season, and the best way to ease into the trend is with a pair of shearling boots. I’m definitely looking forward to this one since it gets so cold in Minnesota and the snowfall can get pretty intense. Shearling boots will help keep my feet warm and toasty!

There’s no denying that I love dressing up, but when the temperatures are near freezing, nothing beats comfy sneakers and a pair of leather pants or leggings. Not only are they more comfortable and practical, but they add a street style vibe that looks amazing under a statement coat.
Jeweled Pumps and Mules
Jewel-encrusted shoes are another major trend that I can’t wait to try. I’ve had my eyes on these Manolo’s for months now and can’t get over how stunning they look in all the different colors. They’re so luxe and dress up any outfit instantly. You can pair them with your favorite jeans or with a cocktail dress for the upcoming holiday parties.
