Perhaps one of the biggest silver linings to summer ending is fall fashion season. All the looks from fashion week finally come to life in the streets and stores are full of a wide variety of styles and selections. Check out some of the best fall shoe trends that you’ll want in your closet this season.
Animal Print Boots
If you’re seeing spots and stripes, you’re not alone. Leopard, tiger, zebra, cow and serpentine patterns will likely be dominating the fashion scene through the autumn. You can expect to see these styles take new form in various shapes, styles and hues. Animal prints are on everything from kitten heels to ankle, knee and thigh-high boots.
Set aside your summer floral pieces in favor of moodier and earthier shades for autumn. Erdem, Brock Collection, and Zimmermann all presented collections with yellow, blue, and orange flowers against a dark background to signal this is indeed a fall shoe trend. You’ll find the print echoed in other footwear styles from flats to knee-high boots.
There’s something about a light-catching metallic that adds a touch of cool to everything from athleisure to evening wear. Whether you prefer bronze, silver or gold, booties, heeled platforms, or sneakers, metallic is an easy way to assure your outfit will be a scene stealer.
You’re about to see buckles on flats and stilettos, adding edge to traditionally more feminine footwear. Alexander McQueen sent a shoe down the runway with three buckles, while Sies Marjan pushed the envelope with four rugged straps. If you’re not ready to have your feet completely caged in, there are simpler, single-buckle options out there.
