It's time to put those Summer heels in storage and make room for over-the-knee boots and lug soles. The cooler temps have us hunting through street style snaps for
the signature Fall shoe — but we couldn't agree on one. And all of these styles work effortlessly with your seasonal wardrobe while adding just the right amount of shoe bling. Go ahead, indulge your addiction and check out some fashionable footwear.
Flats With Attitude
We love a good flat, which is so fitting with just about anything while being comfortable, and these are on trend for Fall with a bit of pattern and see-through panels. Flats with some attitude elevate whatever you're wearing — even if it's skinnies, a white tee, and your favorite cozy cardigan.

Hitting just below the knee, the basic boot is also popular this Fall. It's a casual look that can be worn with bare legs — or cozy tights through Winter. And boots keep your legs covered during showers and even that first snow.

An evolution of the ankle-cuff heel, the t-strap is also a fashionable way to upgrade your Fall look. There are so many modifications to this style, like the see-through mesh panels on the sides of this shoe.

If you don't have a favorite pair of ankle boots, it's time to get shopping. The comfortable shoe is so versatile, looking cute with skirts or elongating your legs in skinny jeans. And you can go with a peep-toe, wedge, chunky heel, or laces to fit your individual style.

OK, this look was sexy through Spring and Summer, so it makes total sense to still see lace-up shoes this Fall. With just a bit of edge, the strap embellishments plus the peek of extra skin make lace-ups a big upgrade from basic heels. And you can wear them all day — and all night.

You might not think you can pull off over-the-knee boots, but it's a chic look that any body type can wear. Just take into consideration your build, shape, and height when picking out the perfect pair. Wear with fitted pieces that show your shape, and don't hide the top of boots with hemlines. Pair with shorter skirts or toss on over fitted jeans for an effortless yet casual look.

Adding a bit of softness to any style, suede is so pretty for Fall. It inspired the idea of long walks through crunchy leaves and the warmth of oversize sweaters. Suede shoes add a feminine pop of softness, working so well with your regular wear.

Although a bit chunkier than sleek heels, lug-sole shoes are on trend this Fall — and are easy to wear when walking over slick sidewalks or running to catch the bus. The look has a bit of a masculine edge, which is fun to mix and match with flirty looks.

You guys, loafers are making a fashion comeback, leaving us all filled with happiness. The comfortable footwear is easy to slip on with a bit of pulled-together chicness that makes anything look a bit more professional.

OK, yes, these are just loafers with a bit of a heel, but the tassels take these shoes to a whole new level. The vintage feel also makes us love these, knowing they'll be a big hit with cuffed jeans or flowing skirts.
