Step into Autumn: Shoes & Boots to Wear Now

So, summer came and went, as short and sweet as ever. Though, we can’t say we’re too sad to see it go, because if there’s one thing we love about this time of year aside from the lattes, the knitwear and bonfires, it’s the footwear.

To keep you up to speed on this season’s must have shoes and boots, we’ve commissioned a guide to Anthropologie’s must-have footwear as we delve deeper into autumn.

 

This year, extravagant embellishment and plenty of shine are the prevailing trends for many runways and fashion aficionados. We asked travel and lifestyle blogger Claire Menary to walk us through and style up three pairs of autumn’s best.

 

Patent-Patter

A key look for autumn, the patent boot’s waterproof power is the perfect antidote to drizzly days. Claire gives it centre stage with patterned trousers in a heritage print.

An office-appropriate trouser elevates the patent boots with its propriety and a rolled cuff means you can fully show them off. They’re the boots we’d wear from desk to after-work drinks.

 

Posies on Toes

For an everyday approach, Claire styles her floral sliders with trusty jeans and a blue velvet jacket. The tonal quality to this outfit allows the detailing on the statement sliders to really sing.

 

Pared back with an unfinished hem, the comfortable flat structure and slide-on, slide-off functionality means we could wear these all day long with ease.

 

Metallic Mileage

A mini is the perfect partner to metallic loafers. Versatile yet bold, they can be paired with pretty much anything. Case in point, Claire’s ensemble of polka dots and a suede jacket.

Perfect for now with bare legs, these loafers will transition well into the winter months with a pair of colourful socks, and all the way into the festive season as an alternative to party heels.

Cold feet? Step into autumn-ready shoes and boots.
