Fall always comes with an exciting set of new trends to try, and footwear is no exception. This season, there’s a little bit of everything you can imagine from ladylike flats to edgy booties and slouchy boots to kitten heels. I’m definitely loving the more practical, wearable approach to shoes – not every pair is essential though. That said, I wanted to share some of the most important categories you should own. Any of the options below work with a myriad of outfit combinations ranging from dresses to jeans and anything in between.
Tall boots will always be in style, but they’re feeling more relevant than ever for the upcoming season. Animal skins and light neutral colors are key to an on-trend look.
One take on the tall boot trend that deserves a category of its own is slouchy boots! I love that they’re to easy to style and add the right amount of texture to everything! I’ve already worn these boots with jeans and sweater dresses.
Lug Sole Boots
If there’s a shoe style you don’t have to think twice about this fall, it’s undoubtedly lug sole boots. The pared-back, sleek design pairs perfectly with more minimalist outfits. However, you can also use them to add edge to more feminine pieces. No matter how you choose to style them, you’re guaranteed a comfy, slip-free experience.
Pointed Toe Shoes
Pointed toe shoes in the form of pumps and booties will always be a classic. No matter how trendy other styles become, I’ll never give them up. However, there’s also the open-toe iteration that celebrities are all over right now. Be sure to pick up at least one pair to team with your occasion wear in the coming months.
Western boots have also made a strong comeback. Although I’m not into strong cowboy designs, I do love a subtle nod to the Wild West – specifically via suede booties or a slanted block heel. They’re virtually flawless when worn with denim.

Fall just wouldn’t be the same without a pair of combat boots. They’re my top choice whenever I’m traveling, treading through snow and rain or out shopping. These edgy, structured boots are universally flattering and great for all day wear.
Shearling Accent Shoes
The best fall shoe trend offers the cozy comfort of slippers and durability of heavy duty boots. There’s none other than shearling shoes. We’ve seen shearling-lined footwear in seasons past but it’s now making appearances in the form of flats, clogs and more. However you plan to take them, they’ll accompany your fall looks in the best way.
