The Verdict Is In: This Is the Major Fall Shoe Trend Worth Adopting

While we’ve already had our eye on the clog trend, it’s only gaining momentum as we head into fall. With a presence on the F/W 21 runways in the collections of brands including Hermes (with a now impossible to get ahold of pair), the trend has become a talking point among fashion people. I'm especially gravitating to the leather clog styles that look similar to loafers.

Fashion insiders have been quick to adopt the shoe silhouette into their wardrobes and clog outfits are definitely gaining traction. Sure, they’re a piece that is an easy addition to a summer wardrobe but I think they’ll have legs long into fall—especially when brands like Khaite and Isabel Marant have them in their new-season collections. Ahead, see cool clog outfits insiders are wearing and shop pieces inspired by their looks. I promise these ’fits will convert you to adopt the clog trend if you’re still on the edge.

Jeans and a blazer are the foolproof pairing that just always works. Add a pair of clogs into the mix for an outfit that feels on-trend for fall.

I'm really into wide-cut trousers at the moment. While I would normally style them with a pair of heels, leather clogs add a cool low-key element to the look.

If you're stumped for ways to style clogs, a great pair of straight-leg jeans can be beat.
