The loafers, chelsea boots, combat boots are very trendy this year. These shoes pair well with everything from straight leg jeans, leather leggings, and joggers look. Shoe fashion is different every fall season, but on this blog post you can find shoes that are super trendy right now and that will continue trending every year.

All of these fall shoes can be styled in so many different ways and should serve you well through winter and for a few years to come. Since there are so many great options in the shopping market, I'm sharing different price ranges for any budget. I rounded up six fall shoe trends to start adding into your wardrobe this season.

1. Ankle Boots (Booties)

These boots have been a staple in my wardrobe for a while now! They are some of my faves, love the western influence details, pointed toe, and they go up slightly past your ankle. A style that will continue to be trendy every year. These are from Steve Madden and are called Catreena Tan Nubuck, the block heel aren't too tall (3.25 inch heel height) so they're super comfy for long term wear. I also have the Dolce Vita IZORA Booties, these are like walking on clouds. The IZORA booties are 2.8" heel height and give me all the 90's vibes. You can style these shoes with dresses or denim and they look so cute! The Catreena Tan Nubuck and IZORA booties are boots to wear now and keep forever.

2. Chelsea Boots

I didn't think I was a chunky boots person, but I jumped on this trend and am totally happy that I did. There are so many designs, from studded leather versions to rubber styles. I love these from Steve Madden called Amulet Rhinestone Chelsea Booties, definitely worth adding to your fall wardrobe. Very comfortable and easy pull on entry. I got the Chelsea Booties from Shoebacca and they give you 10% off on your entire purchase using code IRIS10.

3. Western Boots

Cowboy boots have returned. While they're a trend that comes and goes, this year is super trendy. There are so many cool ways to style them that make them fit seamlessly into your wardrobe. Personally, I have my eye on these Dolce Vita and Steve Madden. They can be a little pricey but since they always come back into trend, they are worth it. I found a similar pair for $50, click here to shop.

4. Combat Boots

The combat boots of all types are a major trend for fall 2021 and these will never go out of style. If you don't have a pair yet - it is time to get you some. You can wear them with everything, from pleated midi skirts, preppy dresses, trench coats, and enjoy this super-comfy trend while it lasts. I got the No Plans Combat Boots from COCONUTS by Matisse, that are super light weight and comfortable for all day wear. They are available in beige. I got my combat boots from Shoebacca and they give you 10% off on your entire purchase using code IRIS10.

5. Mules

Mules are just so easy to throw on and head out the door, especially to run errands or dropping off your kids at school. You can wear them with everything, from jeans, leggings, or a cute dress. I got these from Steve Madden with the chain since they seem to make any outfit more put together. These mules are great for colder day's because of the fur inside.

6. Animal Print

Animal print shoes are still going strong this year. I love the versatility of the animal print and how they make any outfit more chic. You will see this print more in boots, mules, loafer, and sneakers.
