From boots that announce their presence with every step to cozy slippers that make you feel like you’re walking on clouds, autumn shoes are all about style meeting comfort. A well-chosen pair of shoes can elevate even the simplest outfit, turning it into a fashion-forward ensemble. However, with such a massive selection available at our fingertips on the daily, it can be hard to decipher which ones are worth investing in. So, I thought I’d break down some of the key styles I’ll be buying into this season.

Western Boots & Booties

While not a novel trend, western boots are bigger than ever, catching the eye of the masses. I covered them last year but decided to put them on this year’s list again given their popularity. From ankle to knee-high shafts, these boots add a bold, cowboy-inspired flair to any outfit. If you’ve been on the hunt for budget-friendly styles that only look luxe, you’re in luck! I rounded up some great options below!

Tall Boots

Tall boots are a quintessential choice for the upcoming season. I always rely on them to provide that chic and polished effect throughout the cooler seasons. Since we tend to stay covered up in layers here in Minnesota, fall and winter fashion is really about using your coat and shoes to make a statement. Lucky for us, tall boots always deliver on that with little styling effort required on your part.

Slouchy Boots

The undone, relaxed vibe of slouchy boots make them worth trying. From over-the-knee styles that mimic pants to mid-calf boots that marry casual and chic, there’s a slouch for every mood. These boots embody a fashionable nonchalance that give them a cool girl vibe whether styled with leggings or mini skirts.

Ballet Flats & Loafers

I love that ballet flats and loafers are also back! They complement so many fall outfits, whether you’re wearing cropped trousers or baggy jeans. The classic ballet silhouette is being revitalized with modern twists and intricate embellishments. Mary Janes, a close cousin to ballet flats, are especially gaining popularity with their vintage charm.

This fall, slingbacks are stepping into the limelight. They bring together the best of height and comfort. I’m obsessed with the slingback trend because they pair perfectly with jeans and a cozy sweater or your favorite fall dress. If you want to embrace the quiet luxury trend, these shoes are the way to go.

Slipper Inspired Shoes

Slipper-inspired shoes are also making waves this fall, blurring the line between indoor comfort and outdoor style. Two keys styles that I know are going blow up are the Birkenstock clogs and UGG Tasman slippers. Both have taken a leap from home to streetwear. Slip into these cozy shoes to keep your feet snug and fashionable this season.

Red shoes aren’t just an accessory – they’re a statement. Like your favorite red lipstick, they add that show-stopping effect to any outfit no matter what shoe style you’re into. Red shoes are key if you want to turn heads and feel fabulous. They’re the kind of statement that never goes out of style.
