I was recently reading my September issue of People’s Style Watch and was chuckling at the trends for fall. Plaid and oxblood/burgundy/whatever-we’re-calling-it-this-year are on trend for fall? I’M SHOCKED. 😉
And when I came to the shoe trends for fall, my eyes lit up when I realized how many of these trends I already have sitting in my shoe shelves. Fall shoe shopping? DONE. I just shopped my own closet!
The main shoe trends for fall that I focused on were Mary Janes, menswear, and snakeskin.
Details, left to right:
- Menswear: Burgundy patent leather brogues, Clarks, last spring
- Snakeskin: D’Orsay snakeskin wedges with ankle strap, Clarks, fall 2014
- Mary Janes: Bronze Mary Janes, Franco Sarto, thrifted in fall 2013 // Brown suede-and-tweed Mary Janes, Franco Sarto, over a decade ago // Grey Mary Janes, Kohl’s, almost a decade ago // Black Mary Janes, Kohl’s, almost a decade ago (bought grey and black pairs at the same time)

Below are various fall-appropriate ways I’ve worn each current shoe trend. It just goes to show how style is so cyclical!
Any shoe trends you’re eyeing for fall, either in stores or in your own closet? Please leave a comment and share! 🙂
