The Only 5 Shoes You Need This Fall

Put a little pep in your step this fall by upping your shoe game! Sure, you can keep your favorite black booties and Converses in rotation, but why not inject a little bit of fashion into your shoe wardrobe?

After years of minimalism, this fall and winter is all about having fun with fashion, and footwear is no exception! Here are the five shoe styles you need to try out now!

1. Velvet Boots

Velvet is the fabric of choice this season, and an easy way to start wearing it is with a pair of gorgeous velvet booties. They instantly add luxe to your look, and we're craving a pair in a rich color, like baby pink, navy or red.

2. Ballet-Inspired

Ballet-inspired footwear made a splash at Miu Miu–a brand that frequently taps teen fashionistas like Kaia Gerber and Elle Fanning to front their campaigns. We're really into the idea of an edged up ballet flat for fall.

3. Sky High Platforms

The higher the heel, the closer to heaven! That is definitely the mantra for fall and winter—but, these platforms are comfier than you might think. Fall's iteration is actually a flatter platform, so you get all the height without any of the pain. Sounds like a win-win to us! Pro tip: Layer on a pair of socks as the temperatures drop.

4. Loafers

Loafers are a closet essential year-round, but they're getting a few fun updates this season. Think embellishments, metallics, logos, chains, even glitter! Pick one that suits your fashion personality, and don't be afraid to try something new!

5. Furry

We saved the craziest for last: furry shoes! They might not be the most practical, but they're fun and flirty for a night out, like Sadie Hawkins or Homecoming!
