Wear Fall Trends Now: Menswear Inspired Shoes

Fall selections are slowly starting to come out and if you're anything like me as soon as I add something to my closet I feel the need to wear it right away. Transitioning fall trends at the end of summer can be difficult especially when they are heavier pieces, those will have to wait. The trick to slowly mixing in fall pieces is to pick our accessories like shoes and handbags that can flow into your looks. 

This fall we are all about the menswear inspired pieces from the power suit, to pin stripes, to menswear style loafers. These loafers can simply be styled now by wearing a little black dress or pairing it up with flowy summer tops. To add a bit of edge to a look pair with a pair of skinny ripped jeans, it will also add a tomboy feel to the look. Don't be afraid to play with color. Add a pop of color by mixing in loafer shoes that are unique in color, like I did. Ann Taylor's Hattie Suede Block Heels come in both a beautiful sapphire and emerald green that will make any look pop.

This one of my favorite looks that I played with recently. It allowed me to feel fall chic while still enjoying the summer look.

What do you think of the menswear loafer trend? Will you be wearing it this fall?

  3. such a cute way to rock this trend during summer! I like the tip for adding floral pieces. I have a pair of loafers, but they arent very menswear looking.
