While an overwhelming majority of us might not have dressed up a ton for obvious reasons, that doesn’t mean we’ll simply let our wardrobe game fade into obscurity! Before you get your hands on something that will simply fade with this year, check out these selections that are seasonless and are set to impress even in 2021 and beyond.
Fall shoe and footwear trends
1. Thigh-high boots
This is going to take some dedication, and maybe a bit of talc, but oh my, do the season’s stampede of pastel, thigh-high boots deliver on fierce. Teamed with beautifully fitted blazers or skirt suits, or flashing from under a wool overcoat, this dose of fall footwear is sure to keep you cozy and fashionable all at the same time.
If you’re looking for an amazing piece to complete your fall look, these tan over the knee/thigh-high boots won’t disappoint. The seamless transition of the tan leather to the heel creates a nice silhouette.
2. Kitten heel boots
The ultimate sleek and understated shoe, kitten heel boots is another fashion statement we expect to see long after this fall fashion season has ended. Falling into the same camp as flat and platform boots, these are geared towards comfort but at the same time instantly read as elegant and refined.
3. The fall sneaker game
If you’re staring down at your sneakers wondering if your retro dad kicks are still a thing, don’t you worry, they won’t be out of fashion anytime soon. It’s a new decade, but somehow, some of the fall’s most important sneaker trends are taking a step back in time. Adidas’ Ultraboost 20s retain that retro/modern outline with even the color palette harkening back to a simpler time.
Goodnight Maracoon’s Wanda sneakers try to evoke a similar effect and we think that they look absolutely stunning, especially with the muted pastels that go with any earth tone.
4. Red workout gear
You have nothing to fear from wearing red this fall — it was one of the most prevalent colors to pop up on the fall 2020 runways. It reminds everyone not to shy away from bold colors. And what’s the best way to break up your winter whites (or blacks)? Why bold red, of course. This elongated sweatshirt and 3-stripe tights, which are both perfect for your fall workouts. If you don’t want to be totally bathed in red, then these tights are a little more understated.
5. Checkered jacket
If you haven’t guessed already, yes, checkerboard remains one of the most popular designs that has stood the test of time. We’ve long been obsessed with the print on Vans’ classic sneakers, but brands are putting the pattern on everything from socks to sheer turtlenecks now (Even protective face masks!). You’ll totally turn some heads with this checkered fleece jacket.
6. Thick-chained handbags
From metal rope handles to thick chain adornments, this season’s finest handbags are getting an edgy update. The chain trend has been making a lot of noise in the fashion industry for a couple of seasons now, so seeing it work its way into handbags (and even some experimental shoe releases) is always a welcome addition.
Now that you have a firm grasp of what’s in and out, the pieces worth investing in, and the essential items to have for the colder months ahead, we hope these items will find their way to your home and right in time for the fall festivities!
