If you're eagerly anticipating for the weather to turn cooler and counting down the days until you can bust out your favorite fall fashion threads, then you're most likely obsessing over boots and booties right now. Don't worry, you're definitely not alone girl, but I have to say, there are a bunch of other fall shoes that aren't boots and need some love come September. I know when the green leaves begin to turn gold and the weather starts to get a little wetter and colder, it's easy to just head straight to your knee-highs, combat boots, and booties. But before winter makes its way in, fall is the perfect time to thoroughly wear your non-boot shoes. Plus, if it's still super hot during the fall where you live, it'd be best to keep your feet aired out in order to avoid any chances of stank boot. (Ew.)
You never thought you'd feel this way, but maybe you're tired of wearing your denim shorts, flowy chiffon tanks, and Birkenstocks. You feel like you've gotten a healthy dose of summer fashion these past three months and you're ready to turn in your sandals. But before you head straight to the boot aisle, remember there are plenty of other styles you should consider sporting before the snow or rain comes. Giving your toes and feet a break from heavy boots is a good idea every so often, especially if it's all you're going to wear, come winter!
Here are 9 other shoe styles besides boots that'll go great with your fall closet.
