By the middle of autumn, even the most generous Indian summer usually depletes its resources, and you have to change your wardrobe, trying to keep warm. But the fashionistas, of course, do not want to limit themselves to solving this one problem, because the new season is always an opportunity to try new images. And a new pair of shoes is the easiest and most practical way to refresh your look in line with new trends. So, in the new material, we figure out what to change sneakers and loafers for with the first frost.
If it were necessary to single out one main trend, then these, undoubtedly, would be platforms. And as shown by the spring-summer collections presented at fashion weeks, this trend will remain with us for the next season at least. So now is the time to remember the skills of walking on the platform.
In terms of styles, everything is very diverse: from rude boots for lovers of street fashion to ankle boots with thick heels for supporters of a more classic dress code. The higher the platform, the better, but the more modest options are also quite trendy – an example here can be taken from Chiara Ferragni and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who prefer cream boots on a medium platform. Rosie, by the way, is wearing shoes from her joint collection with Gia Borghini.

If you feel that platforms are still not yours, then you should pay attention to boots with rough soles. A similar style was in trend last fall, but then the designers relied on rubber boots, and the more casual and massive they looked, the better. This time it is worth taking a closer look at the classic black boots with textured trim. As an example, you can focus on Valentino boots, like those of Tina Kunaki.

However, one should not forget about rubber boots – only this season they returned in a smaller copy. Now this is something between galoshes and cropped boots.
The flagship model among fashionistas has become the Puddle from the Bottega Veneta collection, which does not give up its positions (everyone began to wear them last winter). An additional bonus – this shoe also features a massive sole, so that one pair can cover two trends at once.
It is definitely worth hurrying with this trend, because everything that looks great on Instagram will not always pass the test on the street, especially when autumn slush and gloom has already fallen on it. But the fashionistas will also hardly be able to pass by the style – designers and influencers were too actively promoting this trend.
Fur covered sandals, slip-ons, and clogs. If you can't go out into the street with them, the purchase is still unlikely to gather dust in the corner, because there are still long winter evenings ahead by the fireplace (or by the radiator). Well, as you know, you should keep your feet warm.

Silver and gold
Along with the fashion of the 2000s, the disco mood returned to us – sequins, rhinestones, in general, everything that glitters like a disco ball. Remember how at that time the most common everyday things like T-shirts and jeans were lavishly decorated with various sparkling accessories? This season, you can make a holiday out of everyday life with the help of shoes – just choose boots in silver and gold colors or decorated with crystals.

Colored soles and heels
If metallic shades don't inspire you, don't worry – this isn't the only way to get away from classic blacks and browns. Bright touches are in trend this fall. For example, look at ankle boots, where the base color is combined with a variegated heel or sole. However, even if these are two neutral colors, it's okay – the main thing is that the contrast is noticeable.
