Hello there 🙂
Fall is sneaking around the corner, which means it's officially time to prepare the wardrobe in the cooler weather. We've already given you a rundown of some of the season's greatest moments, but we thought we'd take a second to focus on some of the fresh shoe silhouettes that will also take on the role. For an expert opinion on the looks that will stay strong in the coming months, we reached out to Ana Correa, Associate Editor for Accessories and Shoes at Trend-Forecasting Mecca, WGSN. But here's the thing, she shared not only the shoe choices worth trying out, but the styles you could save too.
In full transparency, many of the shoe trends that are on the way out happen to be the "basic" styles that many of us have in our closets. Think of standard ballerinas and the like. If you definitely love these silhouettes, be sure to keep wearing them, but if you have the desire for a particularly trend-setting fall shoe deal, Correa's shopping tip is the most beneficial.
Keep scrolling to reveal the top five fall shoe trends to try as you start your fall wardrobe.
"As consumers place more emphasis on comfort, the ballerina apartment is upgraded with a taller design to match both casual and elegant looks. Pointed toes, angular vampires, and slingback straps, in particular, serve as major updates to a more elegant silhouette Color plays an important role in cross-season attractiveness: neutrals are the best performers, but accent tones like millennial pink, lilac and red make for novelty. "- Ana Correa
"Cowboy details are coming to the fore as the major update to standard ankle boots this fall. Block-cone heels and western hardware are key to this style. Pointed toes and neutral tones provide the most commercial appeal." – Ana Correa
"This core style is the perfect all-day garment. Medium-height block heels are key to a comfortable, yet elegant silhouette. Tactile materials add novelty like suede, crocodile and popular velvet." – Ana Correa
"Weatherproof styles are the key to winter drops, but with consumers demanding versatile and practical picks, the combat boot is the perfect style. The snug-fitting, slimmer upper combined with metallic hardware adds to the overall silhouette. High-heeled, flat-shaped, clogged soles are that Key to its practicality. "- Ana Correa
"Knee-high styles are key to keeping a sleek silhouette rather than over-the-knee boots. Go for a minimalist, no-hardware design and bring freshness with soft, patented and embossed leather. Round toe with block heels offer the best of commercial direction. "- Ana Correa
If you wear jeans all the time, these new fall shoe trends are a must.
