Although not quite over yet, Summer is soon coming to a close and while we try to hold back the tears of saying goodbye to the sun, and pretend not to be super jealous of anyone going on a last minute holiday, we are preparing for this major life adjustment by lusting over new season shoes that work for now and later.

When it comes to transitioning your wardrobe from one season to another, it can be a rather tricky task, especially into autumn as most of us are in total denial about the worsening weather. The summer to autumn shift is a big deal, especially in the fashion world as the September issue drops 3 times the size of any other magazine. The pages are filled on how to make your wardrobe work for the cold morning commute as well as warm afternoons in the office, and we quickly discover that sometimes opposites really do attract and summer to autumn dressing can turn out as some of our most innovative and stylish outfits yet. We’ve hand-picked a shoe for every occasion that can be worn in this awkward in-between stage as well as when the weather eventually turns.

If there’s one shoe that epitomises autumn, it’s the classic black ankle boot (above). A versatile profile that suits anything from jeans to dresses; it’s a true wardrobe staple and will see you through from early autumn to winter and beyond. Choose a cut-out profile for the perfect footwear transition; boasting enough coverage to protect you from the elements with a little pop of ankle for that summery vibe. When the weather turns colder, style these with a fun and feminine sock for extra fashion points and cosy tootsies.

For an easy way to take your look from summer to autumn, choose a traditional loafer in bright profile for that extra pop of colour to remind you of sunnier days. This footwear staple is perfect for the office as well as cocktail hour and will add a sophisticated edge to your new season outfit. When the colder weather hits, this profile will work well with sweet dresses and thick tights.

Another staple for this end of the year; heeled boots are a true must-have and can be dressed up or down for the perfect style boost. Forget boring profiles and choose one with a bit of added sass to keep your new season style full of summer fun. Predicted to last into the autumn months, the space age metallic trend is going strong and will add the perfect statement whether paired with bare legs or glittery socks. Stay away from high-shine finishes and keep it toned down for a season appropriate take on this overlapping trend.
