4 of the Prettiest Fall Shoe Trends, Period

Tell me you don't have a thing for gorgeous shoes. Sure, we all own a few "boring" pairs like plain sneakers and loafers. Those pairs are actually pretty necessary given that they do most of the legwork in our footwear collection. But I'd be lying if I said that I didn't have a major sweet spot for pretty shoes that might be deemed "impractical" but are definitely downright pleasing to look at. Fashionable eye candy, you know?

I'm talking whimsical feathers, luxurious crystals, and artsy sculptural heels that make me nearly start drooling they're so good. Since the next seasonal transition will be here before we know it, I thought it was the perfect time to highlight the fall shoe trends I'll be staring at for the next three months straight. (Yes, productivity will be down.) Whatever you're doing today, take a break and scroll through my edit of the prettiest shoes ever. Warning: You might get a little teary-eyed, too.

DRIPPING IN CRYSTALS

The easiest way to take your outfit from zero to 100 this season is with a pair of head-turning crystal-embellished shoes. They'll dress up your jeans-and-tee outfit in an instant, taking you from day to night in style.

FEATHERY AND FLUFFY

Nothing looks prettier than fanciful feathers on your feet, a playful trend that's worthy of your Insta feed!

SCULPTURE GALLERY

Fashion really is art. Opt for modern, geometric heels this season for a contemporary, cool look. 

POSITIVELY PRETTY PEARLS

Pearls add a pretty, classic, and sophisticated touch to every outfit.
