You may be living in sandals and flip-flops right now, but in a few weeks, they’re going to feel all wrong. As darker colors and heavier fabrics start arriving in the stores, you’ll need some transitional footwear to bridge the gap between summer and fall.
Here are a few ideas for stylish shoes that are easy to start introducing into your current wardrobe. Some of them are even on sale! I know, some of you might be thinking it’s far too early to get your head into fall, but I say if you find a pair of shoes you love, you’re better to grab them now before the September crush. Take a look:
1. Off To The Races
A sleek white racing stripe give this pointy-toe bootie a fun flair but also that touch of white that still gives it a summer feel in fall. Comes in black and white too!
2. Transition with Suede
This soft gray pointy flat mule will look just as sharp with white jeans in hot weather as it does with dark fall denim when the leave begin to fall.
3. It’s All In The Details
Usher in fall in these cute whipstitch-outlined sandal booties with an open toe and a tapered, stacked heel.
4. Edgy Meets Classy
Rounded studs lend a bit of edginess to a classic pointy-toe pump that will look just as appropriate with a summer skirt as it will with a fall one.
5. Modern Ballet Flats
Light, airy and classic, these pointy toe Ballet Flats are the kind of shoe that goes with everything, anytime. Love the cozy textured finish.
6. Suede Slide
Just when you think this open toe suede slide can’t get any sexier, you notice the partially wrapped stacked heel.
The open toe cut of the slide keeps it halfway between seasons.
