Fall is in the air (Happy September!), and it is time to get your new wardrobe in gear. As many of you know, we famously loathe blow drying our hair and are often spotted slumming it in the summer going a little more a natural. As soon as fall arrives, we are ready to shop until we drop, and let’s start with shoes!
Clogs and mules are everywhere! Who woulda thought? According to Refinery 29, the hot to trot footwear includes the structural boot, the work-to-drink heel, the updated clog, the pumped up pump, and the mule. From Refinery 29:
1. The Structural Boot:
Everyone knows you have to invest in one pair of boots each season, so we highly recommend you consider these Pura Lopez lovelies. The gray color is seriously stylish and will look good with all of this season’s most important fall colors.
Pura Lopez Gray Suede Wedge Boot, $415, Satine Boutique, 8134 West Third Street (at Crescent Heights Avenue); 323-655-2845.
2. The Work-To-Drink Heel:
TenOverSix is one of the best in-house boutique brands ever, and these heels prove it. We love that one of our fave shoe lines collaborated with the genius Anndra Neen, making these adorned wooden wedges even more stunning.
Cortez Wooden Wedge, $430, available at TenOverSix, 7427 Beverly Boulevard, (at North Vista Street); 323-330-9355.
3. The Updated Clog:
The new way to wear clogs this fall is to pick a pair in rich brown with a cute little kiltie touch, like this perfect shoe specimen from our friends over at Madewell.
The Westway Clog, $168, available at Madewell, 10250 Santa Monica Boulevard (at Avenue of the Stars); 310-772-0428.
4. The Pumped Up Pump:
These Slow and Steady Wins The Race heels are deceptively simple: They look like a classic pump, but they’re actually waterproof. So, literally, save them for a rainy day!
Slow And Steady Wins The Race, Water Repellent Pump In Red, $100, Ooga Booga, 943 North Broadway #203 (between Norfolk Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard); 213-617-1105.
5. The Mule:
These open-backed mules are perfect for the end of summer. Just pair them with a mini and an oversized boyfriend button-up now and slip into opaque gray tights for when the weather gets a bit chillier.
Western Mule, $440, available at Opening Ceremony, 451 North La Cienega Boulevard (at Rosewood Avenue); 310-652-1120.
