Loafer Boots

This season, two fall classics become one standout style: the loafer boot. A part of the modern academia fashion trend, this of-the-moment boot silhouette is going to make waves this fall. Whether you’re after a polished look or an edgy vibe, there’s a style for you in the mix. So take your pick from ankle to knee-high styles.


Shearling Shoes

Get cozy! Treat your feet to a pair of shearling shoes this fall. You’ll find this fuzzy footwear trend spans shoe silhouettes—from boots to heels, mules, and more—so you can work them into your wardrobe in a number of ways. We especially love pairing these soft styles up with more tailored pieces to create contrast and really let the shearling texture be the star of the show.

When it comes to this year’s top fall shoe trends, clogs rank very high on the list. These slip-on styles are going to be everywhere this season and they’ll become a key player in your fall wardrobe. From bold statement-makers to neutral wear-with-everything styles, you’ll find there are a variety of clogs you can style into your fall outfits. 


Hiking Boots

Boots that look like they’re ready for the trail will be pounding the pavement this season. Tough but stylish hiking boots are going to be a wardrobe staple for fall and they’ll provide a grounding force for your outfits. We like pairing them with slip dresses and breezy skirts to juxtapose their chunky look with a softer silhouette.



One of the hottest shoe trends of the season, over-the-knee boots were spotted all over the runway at Bottega Veneta, Isabel Marant, Acne Studios, Burberry, Givenchy, and many more shows. From sleek to slouchy silhouettes, this boot trend will be taking over this season. We especially love that these styles will keep your legs warm when paired with mini skirts and dresses. That said, you can also tuck your favorite jeans into looser silhouettes. 


Moon Boots

Moon boots are back! The bold boot silhouette is trending for fall, and you’ll want to snag a pair before the temperature dips. Comfy, cozy, and ready for the elements, moon boots will keep your toes toasty during the coldest fall days right into the winter months. These styles will also keep your outfits looking fashion-forward when the weather is working against you.
