5 Fall Shoes so Good, You’ll Plan Your Outfits Around Them

It’s an age-old trick: When you can’t figure out what to wear, pick one piece—be it clothing or an accessory—and build your outfit around that. The easiest piece to do it with when fall sets in? An amazing pair of fall shoes.

Whether you’re wearing a look full of your tried-and-true closet staple or something trendy and fun, your shoes will be the glue that holds the whole look together. The swap of a loafer for a boot or a clog for a flat completely changes the vibe every single time—and that’s a power that should be harnessed this fall.

Fall is officially bearing its beautiful head for the 2022 season, and these shoes are going to be the best things you’ve added to your closet all year long.

 

Loafers

By this point, loafers are truly a closet staple. But in 2022, there are countless options to choose from to ensure you have the perfect pair for your closet. To go a bit edgier, opt for a chunky version; if your style is more classic, a menswear-inspired, flat pair is perfect for you. Can’t decide? Opt for a pair in a fun color or pattern to add a pop to whatever you pair them with.

Ballet flats

Ballet flats are officially having a resurgence, and while they might bring back flashbacks of stinky pairs worn out by the hallways of your middle school, your adult version can be a far cry from that. A grown-up pair in leather or suede will bring a French je ne sais quoi to your fall wardrobe.

Leather Platform Booties

We're very much on the side of investing in good boots so we don't need to replace them, and these are the pair our fashion editor is investing in this year. These weatherproof platform booties are the perfect hybrid between a classic boot and a lug-sole boot and will add a bit of cool to anything they're paired with.

 

Clogs

Clogs are back, and they’re the shoe we didn’t know we needed that we now can’t get enough of. You’ve probably already gotten a glimpse of the classic Birkenstock version on TikTok, but pairs with chunky soles in all textures and colors are a no-brainer for a statement shoe this season.
