I’ve had some requests for transition shoes for fall, so I dug up this old post from the archives, and I’ve updated it with the latest trends and current links!
Here in Philly, it can stay warm well into October, and it can be a challenge to find appropriate shoes during this transition time. We’re ready to ditch the summer flip-flops, but booties can be too warm… so what’s a fashion-loving girl to do?
Today I rounded up a bunch of shoes that I think are perfect for wearing during this transition season.
The Best Transition Shoes for Fall
#1. Loafers & Ballet Flats
Once the kids are back in school and Labor Day has come and gone, I start wearing a lot more closed-toe shoes. Loafers and ballet flats are usually my go-to. Right now, I’d say that loafers are more on trend than ballet flats, but of course you should wear what you love and what best suits your style aesthetic. We’re also starting to see lug sole loafers this season, which I think are a lot of fun. They’re also nice for balancing out wider hips or body types with a larger top half.
#2. Mules & Clogs
Love ’em or hate ’em, mules are still going strong this season, and clogs are starting to make a comeback as well! A lot of people have a hard time walking in backless shoes, but if they work for you, they’re a really nice way to start transitioning your summer outfits for fall. For the past few years, mules have mostly been flats — loafer mules were very on trend. This season, I’m starting to see suede mules with a block heel, and I love them! Clogs are also really big right now.
#3. Fashion Sneakers
And finally, if you’ve pushed your fashion sneakers to the back of your closet this summer, now is the time to dust them off! Brands like Golden Goose, P448, and Gola are still very popular this season. And then there are a lot of slip-on styles, and a good white leather sneaker never really goes out of style.
