MUST HAVE NOW Shoes and Socks for Less

by

I’m a shoe girl. I own a lot, I mean a lot, a lot. Probably more than necessary, but like they say, you only live once (yolo), so buy the shoes. Fall is a great time to show off some fancy footwear and mix up the many different styles of shoes you can wear. I’ve picked the simply must-have shoes for this time of year. Check it out.

I love loafers this fall. They are really new to the fashion scene this year and there are so many different styles you can find a pair you love. From studded loafers for an edgier look or my personal favorite, cheetah print loafers. I own a pair and wear them all of the time! This pair from Lulu’s has a preppy look in a berry tone topped off with tassels for detail.

Lulu’s – $26.00

As I hope you know by now, riding boots are a must have for sure. You can wear them with jeans of skirts and dresses and they always look great. This pair from DSW is classic and versatile. For a cozy fall look try pairing your boots with boot sock toppers. This red buttoned pair from Etsy can add some originality and an update to your riding boots.

DSW – $99.95

High Boot Cut Off Socks – Etsy – $19.00

Every girl needs a go to flat, especially with the surprise warm up in Cincinnati this week; I need a cooler shoe to wear. These ankle strap flats from Old Navy do just the trick! They come in a variety of colors and their simplicity is what makes them perfect and versatile for any weather or look.

Old Navy – $24.94

For nightlife or office life, go-to heels in your closet will always save the day and complete your look. This pair from Target is perfect for so many different occasions, you’ll wear them all the time. They are a perfect height for both work and going out and the closed toe makes them a good choice for fall and winter events. Plus nude shoes are an easy color to match with a variety of outfits.

Target – $29.99

For an edgier fall look, go for a pair of ankle boots. I love ankle boots with a pair of colored jeans for fall weekend festivities. This pair from DSW is a classic boot with a twist. To add some girly to these shoes, try wearing these boots with boot socks from Free People. The mixed wools and the lace trim ads a feminine touch to this edgy boot.
