As the seasons change, so do the top trends! Trade your espadrilles and sandals in for the most fashionable (weatherproof) boots, wedges, and loafers in warm hues and rich materials fit for the season. We’ve compiled a list of the top styles for men and women that you’re bound to see popping up everywhere in the coming months.
For the women, rain boots don’t have to feel like a boring, safe pick that you’re only wearing out of necessity. Try UGG’s latest endeavor into waterproof footwear with the brightly colored Shaye and Sienna styles. And for the guys, we can’t get enough of Sorel’s seam-sealed winter boot collection. The Ankeny Mid Hiker Boot will protect you through deep snow and continue to look good enough for happy hour.
Women and men alike have completely adopted the off-duty sneakers-with-everything look as of late (and it’s obvious why). But for those of us who want our shoes to be comfortable, yet still make a statement, see the above choices by Lacoste and Creative Recreation, respectively.
Who says you can’t be style-conscious while lounging around the house? After all, there’s nothing we lust after more on Instagram in the fall than a good fireside scene complete with a good book and some cozy slippers. We’ve found exactly what you need to bring that picture to life (see above). You’re welcome.
Girls, if there’s one thing to know about this season’s fall footwear trends, it’s this: All things suede and over-the-knee are king. Put those two together and you’ve got a perfect shoe you should wear everywhere. Stat. For guys, it’s not quite as easy, but you can’t go wrong with any boot that laces up. It instantly makes your look just a little bit classier.
Want to feel sophisticated in public without sacrificing comfort? Wedges and loafers are your best bet. Why? Because wedges give you height, elongate your legs, and you don’t even have to watch your step no matter how wet or unstable your path may seem. And loafers are typically loaded up with comfortable features like cushioned insoles and rubber driver’s heels, but they still look sleek from an outsider’s perspective. That’s kind of the dream, right?
