While strappy sandals are most often considered a summer staple, we think they make for a daring evening look during the fall season too. Pair them with a slinky dress, faux fur coat, and chic bag, and you’re good to go!
Gianvito Rossi Metallic Triple-Strap Sandals ($955)
Jimmy Choo Lang Metallic Calfskin Sandals ($850)
Givenchy Mirtilla Chain-Link T-strap Sandals ($1195)
We love a good statement heel, but there is a very fine line between making a chic statement and just being garish. Reach for a pair in a toned-down color or pattern to give your outfit an appropriate dash of pizzazz.
After first making their appearance last fall, mules are back in full force for this season. The backless slip-on heels come in several stylish variations, from a versatile black hue to a fun and patterned version.
Prada Leopard-Printed Calf Hair & Suede Wedge Slides ($850)
The awesome thing about loafers is that they are timeless—they never go out of style, and yet there are many brands out there offering modern iterations that perfectly strike the balance between classic and up-to-date.
Chiara Ferragni Blink Eye Glitter Loafers ($259)
As we’ve already discerned, Chelsea boots are the boots to have this fall. They’re a must-have piece if you’re at all interested in trying to keep up with It-girls during the cooler months.
Roger Vivier Polly Two Tone Suede Ankle Boots ($1219)
Marc by Marc Jacobs Suede-Trimmed Leather Chelsea Boots ($400)
Isabel Marant Étoile Dewar leopard-print calf hair ankle boots ($660)
Fall is the perfect time to invest in a really solid pair of classic black pumps if you don’t already own some. And even if you do, there’s no such thing as having too many.
Dolce & Gabbana Kate Nappa Leather & Lace Pumps ($995)
