I have already rounded up some of top apparel trends for all – but what about the shoes?! Let's be honest: Shoes can make or break an outfit. So which shoe trends are making their debuts and which are making a comeback this season? Here are the top five hottest shoe trends for fall this year.

1. The dad sneaker 

This trend is here to stay for the rest of the year. The chunky '90s dad sneaker is a staple for the season – and even if you're not a fan, at least the comfort level of these will be amazing.

2. Architectural heels

This season, normal stilettos are boring. The new trend is to have heels with some fun architecture to the heel. Round, pyramid and even kitschy heels are all over the runways. It's a great way to add some flair to an outfit without being TOO out there.

3. Western-inspired

Western influence is all over this season – so it's only obvious that Western-inspired shoes and cowboy boots are a hot trend too!

4. Bows

I like big bows and I cannot lie! Bows of every size are all over shoes this season. Plus, this can be an easy trend for a fun DIY project for some of the shoes you already own!

5. Kitten heels 

Kitten heels are a shoe with a heel two inches or lower. They are easy to walk in as well as another staple shoe for the season!
