Here are the top 5 footwear trends for Fall 2021.
1) Contrasting Panels
This fall, spice up your footwear by opting for contrasting panels. Look for shoes with metallic, animal, or textural panels that add a bit of drama to your look. Footwear with contrasting fabrics and textures is in high demand. Play around with fabrication that contrasts colors, textures, and prints to bring a multidimensional feel to your footwear. Check out these Chase II Sneakers in Taupe Reptile.
2) Animalistic Accents
This season, it's Ok to embrace your wild side and experiment with some daring animal accents. We love designers that have incorporated animal prints into classic shoes, to give them a fresh revamp. A hint of animal print can transform an ordinary pair of shoes into a fabulous statement that you will treasure all season. If you are feeling extra brave, you can opt for a full animal print ankle boot. Our top picks are these stunning Flexor Boots in Tan Snake and Chase Snakeskin Sneakers.
How to style snakeskin print boots
Wear your animal print boots with neutral, minimalist styling for optimum impact. Pair with gold statement earrings. Keep your makeup light, neutral, and fresh for a luxe look.
3) Faux Fur
Faux Fur is a standout fashion trend gracing the runways this fall. Statement fax fur coats featured heavily at fashion shows. If you want to experiment with this trend, without going all out, try incorporating faux fur trimming in your lapels, accessories, and footwear. A big bonus of this trend in footwear is that your feet stay nice and snug as the weather begins to cool down. We have always loved boots featuring faux fur trimming, but this season the look has been extended to your favorite pair of sneakers. Check out these Dash Sneakers with adorable fur trimming.
4) Chunky Soles
We are thrilled to see the summer trend of chunky-soled shoes will carry into fall. There is something empowering about strutting out wearing a chunky sole. This also applies to boots, so leave your kitten heels at the back of the wardrobe. This fall's all about bulky soles and block heels. We love these Dart Shoes by Hotter. They combine a fabulous, chunky sole with contrasting panels and just a hint of croc texture. Bring on the full trifecta!
5) Utility Boots
Utility Ankle Boots are also must-haves this fall. Choose styles with a chunky sole for optimum impact. These comfortable boots will be your go-to for everyday wear. Style them with distressed, frayed bottom, cropped denim, and pair back with a cropped puffer jacket. This look works well with a slouchy hobo-style bag or trendy satchel. We love these Clarence Boots in Sand.
