We’ve officially hit fall so let’s see what shoe styles the celebrity world has been rocking this week and what you can learn from them.
1. It’s all about comfort and color
Cara Delevingne was spotted wearing a couple of DKNY beauties while shooting the brand’s latest campaign in New York. Platform sneakers are going to be huge next season so get ahead of everyone and start wearing them now.

The monochrome bandana print is great for fall and the comfort of a sneaker means no more pain in the shoe world. Cara also sported some vibrant orange neoprene sandals.

2. Season of the thigh-high
Thigh-high boots are having a moment this fall. They go with everything – from a mini skirt to jeans.

3. Mix those metals
Khloe Kardashian grunged up her look with a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti for Anja Rubik suede booties. The combination of lace-up and peep-toe in a shoe has been popular for a while but it’s the contrasting metal ankle strap and studs that make this style special.
Gold and silver definitely can and should be worn together. If a shoe has both, you’re onto a winner.

These pointy-toe pumps will provide a sprinkling of elegance to any outfit. The tied detail at the back is simply a unique bonus. Try not to mind the sweaty feet, foot sweat is luckily easily preventable.

The new casual shoe is the embellished ankle boot. Take a leaf out of Lily Cole’s book and go for a gold studded pair in the form of Chloe’s suede “Susanna” style.
