If you are keeping up with our back-to-school posts, you may notice how important shoes are when it comes to completing your outfit. I, for one, love shoes since they can really transform your look. If you want to add sneakers to a dress, you’ll look sporty and cute instead of fancy. If you add heels to a pair of jeans, you’ll look chic and cool instead of casual. Shoes can really make a difference! It’s totally fine to have a favorite pair you wear constantly, but it’s good to have some variety too. Since fall is approaching, new trends are also on their way, and I’m going to help you REALLY amp up your look for the school year.
As we transition into back to school and into autumn, we have to start adjusting our wardrobes accordingly. It’s time to put away those cute sandals and flip flops, and start shopping for booties and thigh-high boots. Of course, there are the classic options, but it’s always good to find at least one new trend to try out. Even though it’s cooler out, fall is still an in-between season, so you really have a lot of versatility. You don’t have to jump right into boots once September rolls around! There are some cool shoe trends that you need to try out besides your trusty combat boots – trust me. Here are some of them:
Glittery ShoesChannel your inner Glinda and try out some sparkly shoes this fall. They will help you stand out in the dark and gloomy fall days, and add a little shine to your outfit. They are a perfect way to dress up any outfit and make you look like a goddess. Jeffrey Campbell Mule, $45, Urban Outfitters
Floral BootsOkay, I know that florals are really in for spring, but they will also be in this fall, but in darker muted tones. It's a good way to transition into the new season since everything in nature will basically be dying, so you can look at your feet for a pop of life. Wright Wildflower Tapestry Boots, $148, Nina Shoes
Quriky HeelsStatement heels have started to make their way back. The good news is that they are SUPER easy to DIY. All you need to do is buy a pair of heels then superglue some sort of embellishment on your heels. Pom poms, ribbon, fake pearls- you name it. They will totally help make your outfit chic and on trend. Cory Slingback, $109, Betsy Johnson
Slouchy BootsThis Kim Kardashian look will be huge this fall, since it's a laid-back but high fashion look that goes well with fall dresses and sweater dresses. They almost look like socks in a weird way, which means they must me comfy, right? Right! Kylie Suede Boots, $198, Urban Outfitters
Decorated ShoesFor a more ~edgy~ look, try some more DIY-looking shoes. Unique designs like patches and embroidery on shoes look awesome with a pair of black skinny jeans and a t-shirt. It's super casual, but still very put together. Bugsy Boots, $79, Betsey Johnson
Different TexturesDifferent types textures are really in this fall. Crushed velvet shoes, furry flats, and of course suede are making their annual comeback. Different textures will give your outfit a unique look that will set you apart from everyone else and their ~boring~ shoes. They can make even your most dull outfit be the talk of the town. Vans Suede Sneaker, $60, Urban Outfitters
Clear HeelsThis new trend is a cross between '90s nostalgia and Cinderella. The clear shoes trend probably won't be huge towards the end of fall, but as September rolls around, this look will be a perfect way to segue from sandals to boots. Plus, they just look super cool. Clearer, $109, Steve Madden
