The Evidence Is Clear: These 6 Shoe Trends Are Set for Fashion Stardom

Gearing up for the inevitable cold weather is like preparing for battle—you've got to be well equipped. Arguably, one of the most important categories to be on the lookout for in the midst of a seasonal wardrobe refresh is shoes. From leg-warming boots to cozy flats, it's not an area you want to skip once fall and winter weather rears its ugly head. While the runways have provided plenty of interesting takes on which shoes to wear this season, we've noticed six big trends, in particular, we seemingly can't escape. 

Between our feeds and IRL encounters, these six shoe trends are primed for stardom (which, if you're in the market for new seasonal staples, is something you'll likely want to consider.) This grouping of rising styles includes everything from simple, pared-down flats à la The Row to statement-making animal prints that virtually go with everything. Keep reading below to check them all out and to get your fall footwear collection in order. 

If there's a shoe style you never have to think twice about, it's minimalist flats. This year, the styles we're noticing are more pared down and sleeker than ever, ditching flashy metal details in favor of simple silhouettes with sumptuous materials like supple suede and leather.

Tall boots have never been "out" per se, but they're making a comeback in a way we can't ignore. Just below the knee seems to be the sweet spot for a wearable boot that's both elegant and versatile. Another observation? Creamy, neutral shades of beige are IT for fashion folks.

The coziest of the bunch, shearling shoes are in for a big crescendo this fall. You can go easy with it, opting for shearling-lined sandals and mules (like our favorite Who What Wear pair below), or go all in with shearling-covered flats. Right now this pair of shearling loafers are first up on our shopping checklist. If you're into coordinating accessories, fuzzy shearling bags are also a hot commodity.

If you love sleek footwear with an edge, look no further than the square toe. This silhouette has been a favorite of the fashion crowd for years now, and it's only getting stronger from here. While super blunt square toe shapes are rising, we love the softer take of a slighty rounded edge.

On the more dramatic side of things lies the animal print trend, and at this point, it's fair to consider this a full-fledge neutral. It's pretty much a consistent player when it comes to fall trends, so you can be sure that whichever pair your buy will feel fresh season after season.

It may sound counterintuitive to be focusing on sandals so late in the season, but gorp-y sandals are still a big factor when it comes to fall trends. Lately, we've been noticing them mixed with heavier jackets and maxi skirts as a transitional piece to segway into fall. To make them adaptable to the cooler weather go for rich fabrics like black suede, or brown croc—you can also always go for a shearling-lined pair to keep things cozy too.

My heart belongs to this red blazer.

These 9 Fall Pieces Are Cozy, Versatile, and Downright Chic

I won't lie—when September hit, I went straight into fall mode. Cinnamon-scented candles replaced their summery, tropical counterparts. I've added layers to my 'fits despite rising temperatures. I've even been ordering my lattes hot instead of iced. This girl is beyond ready for fall.

Not surprisingly, the majority of my excitement is directed squarely at fall fashion, and when it comes to pieces that'll give me that uber-cozy feeling and keep me looking chic, Tommy Hilfiger takes the cake. The designer's World of Hilfiger collection is what fall dreams are made of. Think modern takes on classic fall style: on-trend riding boots, chunky turtlenecks, bold blazers, and wool skirts. Each piece is just begging to be worn with something already in your closet. Want to see a few of the pieces I'm especially excited about? Keep scrolling, and prepare to add these pieces to your cart before they sell out.

Let me begin with my favorite piece in the collection. First of all, blazers are the most essential fall items. Dress them up with some trousers and pumps, or keep it casual with bike shorts and sneakers. Now, let's talk about the color of this one. While neutrals are always nice, sometimes you just have to make a statement. This blazer does just that (and at such a good price).

I love that this skirt looks both cozy (I'm always here for a wool fabric) and extremely elevated. Such a look when paired with the matching blazer.

As our fall trend report recently declared, rubber footwear is having a moment this season. These chic riding boots are where utility meets fashion.

There's nothing like a big, chunky turtleneck to cuddle up in throughout the fall. I'll definitely pair this with a blazer (ahem, the red one above) when I want to dress up a bit more.

Since high school, I've always loved a good headband. Luckily, they've bubbled up again in recent years and won't be going away any time soon.

Logo prints are truly dominating my fall accessories.

Boots, boots, and more boots. That's my fall motto. This knee-high pair (with a secretly very comfortable heel) could easily upgrade any outfit.

I told you this collection has major cozy vibes. The stitch detailing makes this scarf look extra luxe.

I'm beyond here for the baker-boy hat trend. I can see myself wearing this one with an extra-long coat and riding boots.
