Hey, everyone! Fall is coming up in just a few weeks, so say goodbye to flip flop and sandal season and hello to fall footwear! Nothing says fall like a cozy sweatshirt, cuffed jeans, and a good pair of boots (or sneakers or flats, in this case)! Here is a curated list of some of the best footwear options for the upcoming season.  The best part is that all of the shoes in this post are both affordable and on trend!

Sneakers

1. Tweed high tops

Tweed is totally having a moment right now, and I’m obsessed with these tweed high tops from Target! They’ll give an instant fall touch to any outfit. If tweed’s not your thing, check out these equally cool quilted sneakers.

2. Wool slip-ons

Vans are the quintessential slip-on shoe, and these wool ones are absolutely perfect for fall. The slate gray color is light enough that it highlights the wooly texture, but dark enough to match a fall color palette.

3. Adidas

Sportswear is everywhere these days. These high tops from Adidas are perfect for an off-duty look.  The black and white color scheme will also match nearly anything! I’m also guilty of eyeing these glittery Adidas shoes as a flashier option.

Boots

1.  Dr. Martens

Dr. Martens are the ultimate cult-classic shoe. There’s a reason my Docs have been featured in countless posts! Some may say that Docs are a year-round footwear choice, but I think they’re a little too heavy and warm to wear on the hottest of summer days.  Therefore, fall is the perfect time to rock your summery dresses with a leather or jean jacket and a pair of black Dr. Martens for a timeless look.

2. Lace-up booties

For all my wide-footed girls out there, this one’s for you (I was blessed with the opposite problem, however, so I’d never be able to wear these cute booties).  These boots scream fall more so than Docs, and are a good lace-up option if you don’t want to go with the full-on military boot. These boots would look so perfect with denim! If you have narrow feet like me, try these heeled lace-up boots from Forever 21. Pro tip: Forever 21 fits narrow-footed people quite well!

3. Crocodile boots

Crocodile is right up there with tweed in terms of what’s trending. These crocodile Chelsea boots will help you rock this trend at a reasonable price.  These boots are also easy to dress up or down!

Flats

1. Oxfords

When I’m not wearing my Docs, there’s a 95% chance I’m wearing my oxfords instead. If you don’t own a pair, I strongly suggest investing in them. I’m telling you, I live in my oxfords nearly every day.  They match every outfit, whether I have to dress casual or for work. They’re comfortable and they’ll never go out of style.

2. Ballet flats

Ballet flats are definitely a shoe staple. I love the added ankle strap on these flats along with the pointed toe. The ankle strap provides extra support, again, for the narrow-footed people of the world, like me! Another pro tip: to rock flats without worrying that they will fall off when you walk, I strongly suggest investing in a pair of stretchy flats.  These stretchy flats from Cole Haan are pricier, but they’re a favorite of many for a reason: they stay on!

3. Loafers

These fringe loafers are both adorable and sophisticated. The patent leather will add extra shine to any look! The black ones are pictured here, but these also come in nude which is another great shade to have.

Back in the day, I could be spotted rocking my 7 for All Mankind dark denim mini skirt and later on, my chambray dress.  Fast forward to 2015, and both the denim skirt and dress are popping up everywhere!

Denim is such a staple fabric; we all have that pair of jeans that we love dearly or even a denim jacket that always leaves the house with us, but the denim skirt and dress can add even more style and versatility to one’s wardrobe.

For dresses, I’m loving this long sleeved one from Forever 21.  The layering possibilities are endless! Tights can go underneath in colder weather, and cropped sweaters would look great on top.

For skirts, I’m obsessed with this one from American Apparel.  The pencil silhouette is a sophisticated upgrade from the cutoff minis that usually come to mind.  Charlotte Russe has a cheaper version, which can be found here.

Hopefully, one of these items will make its way into my wardrobe soon.  In the meantime, if you’re interested in investing in pieces like these, I recommend checking out your favorite retail spots.  They’re bound to have similar stuff; seriously, these two items are so easy to find right now!
