that our Indian summer is officially over, the time has come to say goodbye to
your beloved flip-flops and sandals. We love shopping for fall shoes (who
doesn’t?!) as their versatility allows you to get fully creative with your
layered-up outfits. Here are a few must-haves to add to your closet this
Must-have #1: Leopard flats
shoes are absolutely everywhere lately. They can turn any outfit from simply
cute to super chic. Pair them with colored denim for a trendy and bright
approach to fall apparel, or strut ’em simply with a cream sweater and skinny
jeans for a classic look.

Must-have #2: Casual flats
are probably the most comfortable shoe in the world (Trust: we’ve tried on a
lot of shoes). They also support a wonderful cause, as for each pair of shoes
purchased another pair is given to a child in need. What could be greater than
getting a stylish pair of shoes and helping
or similar slip-ons can be worn with pretty much anything, from yoga pants, to
leggings, to jeans. Be advised it might be best to go a half size down, they tend
to stretch slightly.

Must-have #3: Moccasins
just seem to scream fall. Not only are they extremely comfortable, they go with
practically everything. We like to think of our mocs as fall’s version of
flip-flops. Try pairing them with a colorful pair of skinny cords.

Must-have #4: Knee-high boots
boots can be dressed up or down, and worn with pants, skirts or dresses. They
also offer the added benefit of extra warmth! Try wearing a pair of riding
boots over your fave skinnies, or under your trusty boot-cuts. Big night out?
Rock ’em with tights and a dress.

Must-have #5: Ankle boots
are another option that seem to be popping up everywhere. This Western-inspired
pair looks super cute with a mini skirt and wooly tights.
