The weather is cooling off, the leaves are slowly beginning to turn and pumpkin flavored everything is taking over store shelves. You know what that means? Fall is upon us and so is fall fashion. People always gravitate towards sweaters and I’m right there with y’all, but it’s the shoes that really set off an outfit. Check out where to get the latest trends in fall boots around Birmingham.

1. Chunky Heel + Platform

It’s time for all of us who can’t walk in high heels to shine. Chunky heels give you the height and style you’ll want to upgrade any outfit this fall. Honestly, if the shoes have some height, but doesn’t have a chunky heel or platform, I’m not wearing them. Fashion shouldn’t have to be uncomfortable, but this trend is, which is why it checks all the boxes.

2. Snake + Crocodile Skin

Did anyone else’s skin just crawl? Typing the word “snake” gives me the heebie jeebies, but you’ll see this pattern everywhere this fall. Most places are selling faux snake skin so it’s more affordable and humane.

3. Knee-High

Over-the-knee boots were all the rage last fall and winter. Don’t get me wrong, they’re still a stylish staple and I’ll definitely be wearing mine later in the year. But, 2020 is cutting things a bit short—in more ways than one. Knee-high boots are the new trend on the block for both the runway and streetwear.

4. Western Inspired

I never thought I’d be into cowboy boots, but here I am searching the internet for the perfect pair to add to my fall wardrobe. I don’t know if it’s Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” song or just a random shift to the Wild West, but western-inspired boots are definitely in this season. Some celebrities have been seen rocking the classic cowboy boot while the runway has seen designers taking a modern spin on the yeehaw wave.
