So it’s come to that time of the year where boots, coats, scarfs, hats and gloves come out, as the bitterly cold English wind cuts across the country and the leaves begin to fall. What am I talking about? Fall, of course, my favourite time of the year.
It’s not just the Pumpkin Spice Latte’s and the appearance of Christmas decorations that I adore, but fall fashion, to me, is the best of the year. I will be covering other bits and pieces as the season goes on, but today, we’re talking shoes.
Shoes for fall are absolutely gorgeous, ranging from a pair of Dr Martins, Ugg Boots or Trainers. As soon as we hit the season, new ranges and lines are brought out by each and every shoe company and the fun truly begins. Colours in the autumn are all based around the oranges, reds and browns; subtle but powerful. So there’s no surprise that a lot of the shoes brought out in fall are based around these colours, and others similar. I’m going to show you some of my favourites, including a couple of pairs I have purchased myself and some that are on my wish list.
The first I’m going to show you are the classic’s for fall. The Ugg Boots. The company Ugg has brought out so many different types, from heels to slippers, but the all time favourite is the boots. On my wish list, this year are the Bailey Bow Boots, a beautiful short boot, lined with the classic faux fur, but with a cute twist of a bow lacing up the back.
Next is the simple but classic, black heeled ankle boot. These became popular two winters ago; I remember buying mine and ended up getting horrible blisters for weeks because I didn’t break them in properly. Not only do these give the short girls a little extra height if it is wanted, but they look good with any outfit, skinny jeans and a winter coat, tartan pencil skirt and a blouse, you name it and they are bound to match. Mine were from Topshop, but I know a girl who bought a gorgeous pair from River Island, and many other stores stock them too, especially as we approach autumn and winter.
Next, we are going to look at not a boot, but a trainer. I have recently purchased the pair of Khaki green Nikes (below) and the others I had to decide between and were strong contenders for my autumn trainer. I really love wearing a pair of trainers, all year round, as they are so comfortable, they come in hundreds of different styles and colours and they last at least a year or two or full wear. If you don’t have a pair of fashion trainers, then you should really consider owning a pair, as they are brilliant for comfort but look gorgeous too.
Finally, my all time favourite, Timberland Boots. I bought my first ever pair last autumn and I wore them nearly every day for the whole season. They are comfortable, fashionable, keep your toes warm and go with every pair of jeans or leggings you own. As well as all of this, they are fully winter proof, being waterproof and supplying excellent support for those winter walks through the woods with the dogs.
Thank you so much for reading my latest post, and I hope I have given you some ideas for your perfect footwear wardrobe for fall!
