For many fashion lovers, autumn is, hands down, the best season. From classic plaid to rich, cozy fabrics, there’s so much to be excited about…especially when it comes to our footwear!

This season we’re seeing the return of some of our tried-and-true favourites, like sneakers and ankle boots, as well as some new looks you’ll want in your closet ASAP.

Stylist Erica Wark breaks down the must-have footwear trends for fall.

 

TREND: ‘80s REVIVAL

The ’80s revival is strong this season! Think bold shoulders, bright colour-blocking, and acid wash jeans. In terms of footwear, that means slouchy, shiny and even some hardware-like chains. Colours include your standard neutrals as well as metallics and bright hues.

TREND: COMBAT BOOTS


There’s a nod to the ’90s this season with the return of combat boots. They were big last fall, and they’re back again. What’s great about this trend is that there’s a lot of style variety from heeled boots to flat, more rugged styles.

TREND: BLOCK HEELS


This trend is a really practical way to wear a heel right now. It’s just so comfortable. Some of this season’s styles have a bit of a schoolgirl feel, while others are a lot edgier. Look for square toes!

TREND: EMBELLISHED


Embellished shoes do a lot of the work for you because they’re just like wearing jewellery, only on your feet. One of the biggest embellishments you’ll see this fall? Bows. They’re everywhere.

TREND: ORNAMENTAL HEELS


Like embellished shoes, think of ornamental heels as jewellery for your feet. Wear them during the day with a pair of denim and your favourite tee, or out to dinner with your go-to LBD. Because they’re such a statement, they do a lot of the work in your outfit, which means you can lighten up on jewellery and other accessories.

TREND: ANIMAL PRINT


From clothing to footwear, animal print is everywhere this fall. This is so great because it acts like a neutral but adds a lot of interest to your look. Leopard, snakeskin and zebra are a few of the biggest animal prints you’ll find in stores. Choose your favourite and work it on heels or flats.
