I can’t speak for the rest of the world since I’m basically isolated
on an island in New York, but the weather this whole week has been like, complete and utter sh*t. Windy, cold, and well, very wet. I’m pretty sure Mother Nature was just giving us one last chance last week to wear all of our fave summer clothes and heels before she decided to drop temperatures down to 70s from here on out and like, bring in a hurricane. As usual, there is never any type of warning for this kind of insanity, so if you haven’t done so already, be prepared to spend your evenings re-organizing your closet for fall apparel. Dig up your cargo green jacket, comfy black leggings, and Frye boots. Side note: Who the actual eff wears Uggs anymore? When you’re sick of wearing riding boots, flats, and sneakers in the dreary fall weather, here are comfortable fall heels you can wear to the office and to the bars that won’t have you walking like Bambi after an hour.
1. Dolce Vita Kaire Leopard Pony Fur Mules
Hate them or love them, it doesn’t really matter because they’re very much a thing and the majority of the people in your office probably wear them. I’m talking, obviously, about mules. This shoe trend will carry into fall from this most recent summer, but with a classy, yet v comfy, heel. If you opt for a neutral shade or get a head start into one of fall’s biggest trends, animal print, then you’ll be wearing the most fashionable and comfortable fall heels on the market.
2. Pull&bear Block Heel Boot in Gray
I mean, duh. Can it get any more obvious? Booties are life, fall or not. You’ll want to cop a pair with a low heel (probs like, under three inches) in a sexy suede gray or taupe to go with any outfit you can possibly think of.
3. Kendall + Kylie Zoe Boot in Candy Red
The sock boot and kitten heel obsession isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. You’ll actually see more of it all over your Insta feed and in the window displays of all your favorite stores before you know it. Red totally has fall written all over it, so when you combine trendy style with a bold color, you have a head-turning outfit that’s bound to get you a million compliments and Insta likes if you document your spicy OOTD. You’re welcome.
4. Rebecca Minkoff Brooke Double-Strap Block Heel Pumps
I have been really into Mary Jane pumps lately. No, not the lame ones that your baby cousin wears to kindergarten or some sh*t. This is the mature, yet sexy schoolgirl style that features a walkable block heel and chic ankle straps. They’re v versatile, so you can throw them on with a casual pair of jeans or even a scandalous dress on a Saturday night. They’re really the perfect comfortable fall heels.
5. Frye Dani Shield Whipstitch in Beige
Pedicures and open toe heels do not only have to come out in the summer. Transition the summer style into fall with a toasty brown color, warm suede material, and thick, block-heeled ankle boot.
6. Vagabond Olivia Leather Boot in Black
These are about as basic as you can get, tbh. Like, so basic that these are pretty much the new Uggs. If you don’t have a pair yet, I’m thoroughly concerned. It’s an assumed rule to avoid social suicide that you just kind of have to get yourself an edgy, chic pair of pleather black ankle booties.

5. Knee-High Leather Boots
As much as we all love OTK boots, all good things must come to an end. Unfortunately, the ever-changing fashion industry is trying to make knee-high boots a thing. This style is probably the exact pair your high school history teacher used to wear so she wouldn’t cross the line between prude and slutty. End result? A boot that falls somewhere in the middle of the calf and looks awko taco AF. Stick with the ankle bootie or classic OTK—Never in between.
