If you are the kind of girl who thinks a different pair of shoes can change an entire outfit, this fall is for you. Prints, patterns, colorblock, snakeskin, metallic finishes. Anything goes (or so it seems). Sure, there’s a time for boots and booties, but let’s embrace updated twists on the classic pump, shall we?

Purple-and-orange snakeskin pumps

Nine West, $22 (sale)

Between their height and color, these heels are sure to “pop” among the leaves this fall. Plus, it’s worth mentioning that Nine West has a whole lot of great shoes right now, with plenty on sale.

Houndstooth pumps

DSW, $50

Serious wow factor, wouldn’t you say? Still, they have a charming side. These won us over immediately, and we can’t stop thinking of outfits you could wear them with. Plus, with such a sturdy outer fabric, they’ll transition well into winter.

Colorblook platform sandals

The Emperor’s Newest Clothes, $47

The year has some warm days in it yet. With a more neutral palette, trendy colorblocking and an overall look that somehow begs that they be worn with jeans, we declare these THE platform sandals of fall.
