In addition to the obvious reasons why fall is the best of all time (pumpkin everything, leggings err’day…etc.), the fashion is always on point. I can wear the most comfortable outfit to work and then come home to lounge without feeling the need to peel off my
skin clothes. It’s almost as refreshing as flinging my bra across the room. And this obviously goes for shoes, too. In the summer, I feel the need to stock up on heels so I can be taller than 5’3” (for once) and frolic on the beach in too-expensive wedges that I end up ruining. At least in the fall, I don’t run the risk of breaking my ankle when I have too many shots because I can wear cute af booties or trendy ballet flats to keep me decently steady. Not only are they reliable, but flats come in real handy if you’re a city betch and always pack a pair to change out of. Ya, ain’t nobody got time for walking a city in heels or balancing on a hydrant to put them on… Here are flats you’ll love enough to wear all fall and won’t just throw in your bag and forget about.
^^^Um, yes, I agree that martinis come before shoes and guys… except when it comes to Louboutins. *Jumps off the stage to grab them*
1. BCBGeneration Noel Flat
IDK what to say about these other than the fact that they’re the cutest fucking things I’ve ever seen. They come in black so that’s an A+ in my book already, and they’re lace-up which means you can wear them with a dress or cropped leggings for an attempt at being stylish (even if the rest of your outfit says otherwise). And like, they’re pointed toe which makes you look kinda sophisticated, but most importantly, they make your feet look tiny.
2. Soludos Venetian Convertible Loafers
OK I know these might look like the same slippers your grandpa wears, but hear me out. Flats don’t only consist of ballet flats, but daddy
issues shoes are also in their prime time at the moment for their max comfort and flexibility. They’re comfy af and go with anything you could possibly imagine. You can even fold the backs down if you’re feeling extra hipster-ish or some shit.
3. Calvin Klein Women’s Lisette Flats
Does anyone actually wear Sperry’s anymore? Just douchey frat guys in a basement? Okay, I thought so. These are basically the trendier upgrade of the fuckboy shoe, coming in three feminine shades that complete a v classy, refined goody two-shoes ensemble. You know, for all those occasions you can’t bring your flask because it’s “frowned upon” and “9 in the morning”.
4. Beek Seagull Mule
It’s a slip-on, it’s a hotter version of the cringeworthy clog… it’s a mule. The mule is essentially a combination of the two and although the name is literally that of an ass, there are actually really cute styles this season. These are the perfect walking and standing shoes because they obviously have no heel. The rose gold gives a pop of flair to any average outfit and lets your basicness shine to the world.
5. Jimmy Choo Vanessa Lace-Up Flat
Two words, one name: Jimmy Choo. There’s a reason why homegirl Carrie Bradshaw had dreams about his shoes. This shoe is the hotter version of the ballet flat, to put it blunt. With bold red suede and risqué cutouts, the classic pointed toe flat elevates every outfit with bright color and crisp style. These are too
expensive precious to fuck up, so don’t even think about blacking out in them.
