Fall Season Footwear

Fall is my all-time favorite season of the year, and where I live, the first sign of the incoming fall season is the whiffs of the local tomato factory just one mile away that gets me craving pizza or pasta…I’m salivating just thinking about the scent! I look forward to all of the fall things – the festivals, the activities like apple and pumpkin picking, opening the windows for that crisp, cool air and of course — the fall fashion. Fall means trading in the flip-flops for closed-toed footwear! Check out these fall season footwear looks to match!

Riding boots (similar) used to be my go-to back in the day. I personally need to have a wide calf option and they’re harder to come by, but I always had the classic black and a brown pair to be able to switch it up. They’re such a fall staple and perfect to wear for all of the fall festivities, especially the ones that involve messier outdoor terrains! Pair them with some leggings and a casual or dressy sweater (similar) and you’re good to go!

Ahhhh my current favorite… the classic ankle booties (similar)! There’s nothing like a nice suede and a good thick block heel to elevate your stride if you’re on the shorter side like me. You can wear them for all of the fall occasions, whether it’s casual or even a dressier look if that’s your goal too. I have weaker ankles, so I love the added support around the ankle area that they have. These can be paired with a cute dress and jean jacket, but I loooove grabbin’ the perfect pair of jeans with a nice undershirt and a faux suede jacket!

Chelsea boots – a comfy and casual and close-fitting ankle boot, typically with elastic side panels…they are an easy on/off option. Perfect for a rainy or chilly overcast day, running errands, or an impromptu lunch date with friends. Keep it super chill with jeans, a plain white tee and a jean jacket (similar) to complete the outfit.

Another type of bootie would be the easy on/off slip-on boot (similar) or sometimes also called a “shoetie.” It’s basically a bootie without the zippers on the side. Sleek looks can be created with these – they’re good for the office, and also happy hour or date night afterwards. Paired with dark jeans, a dark tee and a neutral-colored oversized cardigan, these are a staple item for the fall season for sure!

The wedge boot…I love a good wedge! I have so many variations of the wedge, I literally have a wedge for every season! Casual but chic is how I would describe this style of wedge, as they stand out and would be considered the statement piece of the outfit, especially when paired with a light-colored jean and lighter sweater during those beginning weeks of fall.
