The boyfriend look is still going strong and we’re definitely seeing this in our footwear options. This trend has evolved and has become more sophisticated, so pick a pair of booties that have a scholarly feel to them like these Aberdeen two-tone bootie by Madewell. If you can picture yourself walking the halls of Harvard in your booties, then you’re on trend.
2. Cap Toe
The cap-toe trend is also carrying over from summer to fall. To update the look from your summer style, choose a cap-toe bootie that has added interest like a textured material, or a noticeable colour contrast between the bootie and the toe. This Amoby bootie by Vince Camuto is a great pair because of the contrast between the ladylike feel of the quilted black leather and the sporty gold racing stripe.
The hottest colour to wear this fall is undoubtedly oxblood. Opting to wear the colour on a bootie is a great option for those of you who love oxblood as an accent colour, but don’t want to wear too much of it. These Morea booties by Michael Antonio would be simply perfect as an accent piece worn with black skinny jeans.
Let’s take our basic black booties up a notch and throw in some leopard. Leopard is popping up on feet everywhere this fall. These Cedrina booties by Aldo are the perfect mix of moto and diva, with the stacked heel black heel and rounded toe, and the pop of leopard at the back.
The vintage Americana feel is coming back with accents like fringe applied to a number of fall staples. These Sam Edelman Louie booties are wonderfully casual with the taupe suede, stacked heel, and the effortless toss of fringe on the side. Put the cowboy boots into the closet for another year because these booties have got you covered.
No matter what your style preference, look for a bootie that has a stacked heel, different textures and materials, or has colour and you can’t go wrong!
