While there are more footwear trends in any given season than one little roundup could ever do justice, today I thought I’d put together an easy overview of what I think will be the most-worn shoe styles among the fashion set in the coming months. Covering boots, heels, and sneakers, I’ve narrowed in on the overarching themes that—even if trendy shoes aren’t your thing—you’ll probably want to buy into and/or wear this fall.
Why? Because not only are they undeniably “cool,” but they’re also versatile, not too out there, and available at a range of price points. So, really, anyone can get on board. Oh, and there’s a chance they’re already in your closet! To read about each one, get some styling inspiration along the way and, of course, shop them If you please, just keep scrolling.
1. Chunky Boots
From welly-inspired styles to leather lug-soled pairs in both high shafts and low, glaring chunkiness is the most important detail if you’re looking for a trendy boot this fall.
I don’t know if glamping is for me, but this outfit definitely is.
