Fall is getting closer, and fashionistas are eagerly anticipating trends at their favorite stores. Here are three fabulous shoe trends you’ll want to wear this upcoming season.

1- Menswear-Inspired Pumps

Androgyny is a key element in a lot of fall and winter trends; this season is no exception. Balance out the look by choosing menswear-inspired pumps or loafers with feminine details. You want a hint of the trend, but you don’t want to make it look like your wearing men’s shoes.  Wear these shoes with dress suits, dark denim, floral skirts, or anything that’s fresh and feminine.

Styles you’ll love:  Franco Sarto Rodeo Black Stretch Shoes $56.99 at Zappos.com, Eienne Aigner Jodell Shoes $88.99 at Famous Footwear, and Natural Sole by Naturalizer Fernard $64.99 at Shoes.com.

2- Fringe Boots

If you love the bohemian vibe that comes from the chic look, you will definitely want to stock up on fringe boots which are hot this season. It doesn’t matter if you purchase a pair that’s made of real leather or faux leather, the only thing that matters is that you purchase a pair that features unique details like peep-toes or zippers. Pair yours with long peasant skirts and flare jeans.

Styles you’ll love:  Nine West Icelandic Fringe Peep-toe Boots $139.00 at Nine West, Minnetonka 3-Layer Fringe Boots $89.95 at Nordstrom, and Kenneth Cole Reaction Hi-King Fringe Boots $139.00 at Macy’s.

3- Wide Calf Boots

Once the temperatures start dipping, warm (and insulated) footwear becomes a must. Wide calf boots are one way to fit this need, but they can be tricky to wear. They look best with skinny jeans, long skirts, and loose fitting knee-length dresses. You want to wear these shoes with other very casual pieces, but you don’t want to overwhelm them with pieces that are too loose or baggy.

Styles you’ll love:  Colin Stuart Platform Slouch Boot $98.00 at Victoria’s Secret, Trusol Tricia Tall Wedge Boots $59.99 at Kohl’s, and Zellie Boots $79.95 at Steve Madden.
