Florals were all over the runways this spring, and you’re sure to see them all over the streets this fall. The pair by Sole Society have a beautiful stacked wooden heel and embroidery all over the body. These are my favorite for their versatility, as the colors are neutral enough to wear every day. The second pair, by Shelly’s London, will be your fall fashion statement. They would pair incredibly with a simple white tee and jeans and would add vintage vibes to any outfit.
Metallics are another spring trend that is following us into the fall. The first pair from Asos will only cost you $55, which is great if you want to try out the trend, but not fully invest in a piece. These gold boots will be the centerpiece for any outfit and would look great with jeans or a dress during the holiday season! The second pair, from Vince Camuto are a pewter grey metallic, which are subtle enough to wear everyday, add a touch of cool girl grunge.
Kickass Black Booties for Everyday
Every girl needs a kick ass pair of wear everywhere, live in, go to, black booties. Easy to match with virtually any outfit, these are a staple you NEED in your closet. The first pair from ASOS follows the new sock trend that seems to be overtaking the boot world at the moment. They have a super cute stacked heel and a pointy toe. The second pair is your classic Chelsea boot. Ideal for comfort and their quality (they’re genuine leather!) and incredibly priced at only $71, these are a steal.
Animal prints may seem like a wild idea (see what I did there?), but they’re sure to become a staple in any gal's wardrobe. ASOS made a super cute pair of leopard print booties finished with Western style buckles, adding a fun twist. The Vince Camuto pair of snakeskin print, stacked heel booties are to die for, and are an elegant classic.
Brave the Rain in Style
Just because it's raining doesn’t mean you have to ruin a nice pair of shoes for the sake of fashion or wear clunky giant plastic boots. These Ted Baker Chelsea rain booties combine navy and black (which will literally match anything) in a comfortable and cute style and include a cute ‘T’ embellishment on the side. J. Crew makes a similar style, which come in a super cool camo print, all black, and the perfect shade of burgundy.
Over the Knee
Over the knee boots really came back into trend last fall, and this year they came back in cooler colors and materials than ever. I thought I would include a classic pair of black boots, and these have an added bonus of ties at the top to help them stay up. The second pair, from Zara will be the center of any outfit, with the velvet texture and their beautiful blue!
Velvet is all over the runways this season. From small velvet cuffs to full velvet dresses, this new trend can be found in so many different pieces! The first pair from Zara are a beautiful blush color, and have beautiful jeweled detailing on the front and side. They look one-of-a-kind, and would look incredible incorporated into any outfit, day or night! The second from ASOS combine the sock and velvet trends to create the softest looking pair of shoes you’ve ever seen. Plus, they're the prettiest shade of mauve!
Cut-out booties are a great way to transition from summer into fall as they are partially still open in places, yet are still booties! From day to dinner, these boots are cut out for the job. The first pair from Free People have a high stacked heel, a peep toe and a V-cut down the side. The booties from Sole Society feature buckle detailing and come in a variety of colors, plus the reviews say they are super comfortable.
