    Peep-toes might seem impractical once the weather cools down, but when paired with tights or socks, they give a standard boot a seriously stylish upgrade.

    While brown and black will never go out of style, we've been noticing an influx of hunter green footwear hitting shelves this fall. The deep shade not only matches everything, but also adds a sharp element to any outfit.

    While the slip-on silhouette isn’t new—it’s long been favored by skateboarders, grunge-lovers, and pretty much everyone in the ’90s—it’s never truly been embraced by the fashion crowd, until now, adding a laid-back look to any outfit.
