This Fall Shoe Trend Is Convincing Me To Trade In My Usual Go-To Boots

For The Zoe Report's fall fashion issue, TZR editors are sharing the Fall/Winter 2019 pieces they’re most excited to welcome into their wardrobes. For Ryan Gale, fashion market assistant, that includes classic pieces with unexpected twists — and lots of black.

My style changes with the seasons, and as fall approaches, I couldn’t be happier for new opportunities to wear dark colors — particularly, more black. There is something about the color black that makes my wardrobe feel more elevated and luxe, and I am fully leaning into that mood as we move on from summer.

My go-to look any time I'm unsure of what to wear is a leather jacket worn over my favorite denim — a New York City cool girl staple. But this season, I'm giving my usual pieces an update. I’m swapping out my forever tried-and-true leather jacket for a leather blazer with a truly next-level twist. Boots are always a favorite for me, but during the fall, my collection thrives. This year, I'm looking for a pair that feels both classic and unexpected at the same time. My latest obsession is clogs, a comfier transition out of my mules from summer. Tight-fitting turtlenecks with simple cut-outs or asymmetrical shapes add charisma to any outfit and are fantastic for layering as we later transition into winter. So, expect to see a few of those in my fall wardrobe rotation this season as well.

Here are my top Fall/Winter 2019 picks for fall.

Helmut Lang Blazer

This Helmut Lang blazer is next level. It’s somehow both chic and gothic, and I’m completely obsessed with its crinkled fabric.

Egrey Bodysuit

This bodysuit is simple, but its asymmetrical arm cut-out makes it a standout staple.

EB Denim Jeans

The fact that these jeans are reinvented vintage Levi's 501s says enough. I love the deconstructed look of them.

Maison Margiela Boots

Tabi boots will always be a classic favorite of mine, and the military green color is a must for fall.

Salvatore Ferragamo Mules

I can totally see myself running around the city in these embellished leather mules from Ferragamo. I’m also into the idea of dressing them up with frilly lace socks.
