Step into fall with style! Here are the 5 stylish shoes French women are wearing this fall that are definitely worthy of investment this season. From ankle boots to loafers to ballet flats, there are plenty of classic and chic footwear options for the transitional months you can borrow from the French woman’s autumn wardrobe.

Whether you’ve started reaching for your blazers, or wool coats, in today’s post, I’m helping you prep your next-season shopping list, starting with the best fall shoes to wear. This season’s trends play on classic styles (like loafers) and bring back silhouettes you may have deemed lost to the back of your closet (hello ballet flats!). Keep scrolling to discover the French-girl autumn shoes that you definitely need to incorporate into your wardrobe this season.

1. Loafers

I love wearing loafers in the autumn season! Loafers look incredible with any outfit aesthetic and automatically add an air of sophistication to a look. If you’re a first-time loafer buyer, consider opting for classic pair like the iconic Gucci Jordan leather loafers.

In addition to classic loafers, both lug sole loafers like TOD’s Kate Chain leather loafers and penny loafers like Church’s Pembrey 5W leather loafers are in style this year. Personally, I have a preference for lug sole loafers which give this masculine-feminine style to any look.

2. Ballet Flats

Ballet flats are one of the footwear of choice for fall! This iconic Parisian style is a bit of a wardrobe icon and a staple that continues to be trendy. And this season, they are stepping in as a chic alternative to loafers. Consider opting for an embellished ballerina style like these gorgeous Roger Vivier Flower strass buckle ballerinas or Jimmy Choo Silver Baily embellished glittered-leather flats.

3. Chelsea Boots

This year, Chelsea boots have gone beyond their British roots —did you know that the first Chelsea boot was made for Queen Victoria?— and become a universal favorite! And these shoes are definitely a fall staple! Check out some of the gorgeous options above, from classic to modern, that are sure to make you fall in love with this classic fall boot all over again.

4. Suede Boots

Autumn’s brisk and refreshing weather makes suede boots quintessential! Whether western, lug sole, flat, heeled, or ankle, suede boots are the perfect shoes to wear in fall. Paired with casual jeans and sweaters, you can’t go wrong with a suede ankle boot, be it heeled or flat. This season, I’m obsessed with Isabel Marant’s Dripi suede ankle boots.

5. Equestrian-Inspired Boots

These equestrian-inspired boots or riding boots are the ultimate investment for the rainy fall season! Spotted during the Chanel Fall/Winter 2020-2021 show, this classic shoe style available in black, chocolate, or cognac leather adds an upgrade to the most casual outfit.

Wear them à la Parisien with black stirrup leggings —black plain cotton legging that looks more like black skinny pants, an oversized white button-down, and an elegant overcoat. This fall, I have these gorgeous Guddi Zelda harness-embellished leather knee-high boots on my wishlist.

Et voilà! I hope this guide to the best French-girl fall shoes will help you hit the sweet spot between elegance and effortlessness this season!
