Before you say anything – I know we’re still in the middle of summer. But even though boot season and the cooler climate is a little away, that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on fashions biggest trends a month in advance?

This autumn, we’re taking our boots, loafers, and pumps to the next level. From thick-soled loafers to stylish slouchy boots and even sky-high platforms, there are so many stylish shoe options coming your way this season, and I, for one, am beyond excited to dive into this season’s most prominent trends.

While many of us have been embracing the freeing life empty of high heels, it’s officially time to step back into the world and opt for a solid go-to option that keeps you comfortable yet elevated at the same time. Needless to say, designers have considered our love for at-home dressing and incorporated fuzzy slippers into our indoor/outdoor attire (your welcome).

So, whether you need a wardrobe refresher, are on the hunt for this season’s most significant trend or want to double down on flats, keep scrolling to discover your new favourite shoe of the season.

Slouchy boots are the next covetable throw-on-and-go style of shoe. Paired with a monochromatic look or as a pop of colour is the ultimate way to style these boots while adding a bit of texture to your look.
