Shoes are one of the easiest and quickest ways to update your wardrobe for a new season. And since we still have a ways to go before sweater weather arrives, it only makes sense to infuse some footwear newness into our warm-weather looks. Fall 2018 shoe trends run the gamut from ultrafeminine to edgy, meaning there are several stylish ways to get your look up to speed this season. Pair the must-haves below with your favorite summer dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, and skirts now, then wear them with jeans, leather, and layers later on. You may not feel totally ready to say goodbye to your sandals — and that’s ok —but these fresh finds, you can ease into autumnal style while still enjoying the late summer sunshine. Ahead, the six shoe trends you should have in your closet this fall.

Pointy Toe Mules:


From the ease of getting them on and off to the decidedly Carrie Bradshaw-inspired vibe, we can’t get enough of this slip-on style, specifically of the pointy-toe variety. Whether you opt for square toe kitten heel bow mules in beige, flat fuchsia mules, or high heel white mules, you’ll be Fall style-ready in no time.

Western Booties:


Giddy up! Add a little wild west to your outfits with  Fall 2018 ankle boots that don’t look like they’re castoffs from a cowgirl costume. We love these western booties with floral dresses for a chic mash-up.

Block Heel Pumps:


Get your back-to-school on in a pair of block heels. The low heel style is comfy and chic, so you can get around easily — and on trend.

Animal Print Shoes:


Fall 2018 is going to be a wild one. Leopard, cheetah, snake prints are everywhere, especially in the shoe department, ready to add some sultry sass to any look.

Futuristic Chunky Sneakers:


Dad sneakers are still going strong and bulkier kicks are getting a new-age spin for Fall 2018.  Metallic details, cutouts and more are taking the trend into the new season — and beyond.

Embellished Shoes:


Fall shoes are adorned in all sorts of ways. Beads, rhinestones, studs and more abound, making a party for your feet at any time of day.
