The winning ticket to any outfit is your footwear, which is why many of us live by the motto, you can never have too many. Building a wardrobe you can wear on rotation is something are all doing, especially as we head into the tricky transitional seasons.

As we step into a warm Autumn, this shortlist focuses on shoes you can wear with bare legs or layers. Here are the shortlisted top 5 footwear trends to note…

#1 Loafers

Comfort has definitely become more of a priority over the last few years, due to certain events we won’t mention. With that, the rise of the loafer has become a staple in every woman’s wardrobe.

Whether you want the super chunky loafers giving you a new level of confidence from GANNI or a classic and mature silhouette with Hereu.

#2 Ornamental Heels

From Fashion Week to street style inspiration, ornamental heels are giving the heels category a facelift. Worn with a pair of jeans, skirt or trousers, these delicate and detailed heels give your outfit a little zest, with very little effort.

Cult Gaia has perfected the ornamental heel with low to mid-height heels that you can make work for every occasion.

#3 Party Heels

As much as we talk about comfort, there is no disputing that party mood is back. As fashion experienced a mass injection of energy, sparkles, silvers and a host of bright colours are all keynotes this party season.

Maison Margiela’s reinvented iconic tabi and Marni’s inspired lilac mules highlight the freedom you should have with your looks this season.

#4 Knee High Boots

Boot season is nearly upon us and knee-high boots are what is on everyone’s radar. Adding a little extra to your outfit, they are the style that everyone is dressing up and down for the next season.
