Fall fashion is all about layering and closed-toe shoes. As you put away the strappy sandals, get into these four shoe trends that designers and fashion leaders alike are currently loving. 


Ditch your summer mules and embrace clogs. What once was considered ugly shoes, this shoe trend is making a comeback. The new revamped version can be seen on Bottega Veneta’s Fall/Winter 2021 Ready-To-Wear show. It is less clunky and more rubbery– making it lean into a more minimalist approach. These Simon Miller bubble clogs also give a similar modernized version. You can incorporate this trend in your wardrobe by wearing it with a knit skirt and top, or flowy wide-leg trousers and fitted top.


Loafers are naturally fall’s favourite footwear of choice. This classic footwear has seen plenty of iteration throughout the last decade, but what caught everyone’s attention is when Prada’s thick-soled loafers became a cult favourite. Now, you can find similar styles in a more affordable option. Whether you like it flat, block heel, or platforms, there are plenty of styles to choose from! Wear it with black opaque tights, a pleated skirt, and a sweater vest for a classic yet trendy look. If you want to look chicer on a sunny fall day, wear it with a white mini poplin dress, oversized blazer and colourful socks for a pop of colour.

Platform Mary Janes

Nothing speaks fall more than back to school and this trend reminds me of such. These doll-like shoes first gained popularity in the late 1990s within the punk and goth subcultures. Now, with the resurgence of Y2K fashion, it makes sense why this trend is worthy of a comeback. Versace’s Fall/Winter 2021 Ready-To-Wear show gave us a taller and more vibrant version of the classic Mary Janes. The square-toed platforms come in red, pink and yellow. Ariana Grande was even seen wearing a yellow Versace ensemble in a late-night show appearance. More affordable options can be found in ASOS, Dolls Kill, and Nordstrom

Western Boots

The cowboy boots trend is not going anywhere so don’t put those bad boys away just yet. Instead, wear it out in with fall-appropriate outfits. This trend can be worn with wide-leg denim and a knitted sweater for a casual affair. Alternatively, you can embrace the trend by tucking your straight-leg jeans inside the boots and tone it down with a plain collared shirt.
