Some things are just universal; you should always have a go-to red lipstick in your makeup bag and you absolutely need a flattering LBD that can be worn for any occasion. The same can be said when it comes to shoes–there are rules. We all have our favorite pairs and styles, but not all shoes are created equal–especially when it comes to those chillier months.
Fortunately, there are a few footwear styles that have major crossover appeal and can be worn in between seasons. If you don’t already own these must-haves, you need to invest in them ASAP, as these are the perfect summer-to-fall transition shoes to strut in as the temperatures start dropping.
Ballet Flats. Every woman needs a good, sturdy pair of ballet flats. This go-to shoe is one that you can rock every day–pairing them with your favorite jeans or adding them as a work staple to accompany your arsenal of dresses and skirts. Plus, who doesn’t need a comfortable pair of flats?!
Open Toe Booties. Whether it’s the tail-end of summer or the beginning of fall, open toe booties are a must. This cut still allows you to show off your summer pedi, but offers some much-needed coverage on chillier fall days.
Mules. Don’t sleep on this fun-yet-functional shoe! Mules are a lifesaver when dealing with cooler temps, as they’re a super stylish option to rock from season to season. They’re so versatile–you can literally wear them with anything from summer dresses and skirts to jeans and pants on those cooler fall nights.
Light Color Bootie. Before winter officially strikes and you’re reaching for black booties days after day, mix things up with a versatile pair of light color booties. Because the color is close to nude, these beauties can be worn sans tights at the end of summer and beginning of fall. Even better, they look good with so many different clothing items. Dresses, midi skirts, cut off shorts–your options are endless.
