Step into greatness.

We're dressing for autumn the only way we know how during this in-between season weather by starting with accessories. Shopping all the new autumn shoe trends has never been easier thanks to our check-list below. 

From crystal-embellished sandals to python print, practical flat ankle boots to chunky trainers, this is your cheat sheet to the 40 pairs to be seen in.

Now, that might sound a little overwhelming, but we've made this edit even easier to shop by splitting those covetable shoes into trends that we're predicting will go big. Sound good? Scroll below to find out which footwear trends you've probably already spotted.

Style Notes: The eighties are back, and we're celebrating by investing in one (or more) pairs of white shoes. Whether it's a pair of high heels, kitten heels, sandals, ankle boots or slip-ons, there are so many ways to get in on the trend.
For everyday wear, try something with a mid-height heel.
These will get you all the compliments.
No one will believe these are high street.
The black wedge allows you to wear these easily with tights.
Style Notes: If you're in the market for a sandal, let us convince you to slip into something throwback. Yes, '90s sandals are set to be huge, and we couldn't be happier, as it's just in time for party season. When it comes to styles, choose square toes and heels, metallics or brights. These will make a simple jeans-and-tee combo feel instantly more grown-up.
These are a style-set favourite.
Love metallics? You'll want to try this pair from Alexandre Birman.
Get these before they're gone.
Take on two trends with Aquazzura's Paradis 85 sequinned heels.
Style Notes: Forget sleek, delicate, minimalist sneakers—right now, it's all about embracing practical, clunky kicks that promise maximum comfort and maximum style. 
We're still seeing these everywhere.
Guaranteed comfort from Ganni.
Calling all maximalists: this is the pair for you.
So chic.
Style Notes: Minimalists, look away now, as this trend is all about embracing fun. Look to standout heel designs, vivid colours and unique silhouettes.
Go all out with Yuul Yie's Pearl pumps.
So chic.
They're sleek and simple from the front, and even better from the back.
Dip your toe in the trend with a little help from Neous.
Style Notes: If bling just isn't your thing, then keep scrolling past this dazzling section because in case you missed the memo, crystals are trending. Apply the sparkle to your shoe collection and slip into something glitzy.
Trust us when we say these won't be in stock for long.
For something fancy, try Magda Butrym.
We're head-over-heels for Attico's celestial mules.
Or why not invest in a classic leopard pump with a glitzy twist?
Style Notes: If you were on the fence about the Western trend, it's time to jump straight in because the style set has given it the green light. Still not convinced? Let a white ankle boot style be your entry point to the trend and style with slim-fit jeans and a checked blazer.
We're all about taller iterations this season.
Worth saving for, right?
Don't want to go bold? Tibi's sleek black knee-high option will look effortlessly chic with a midi skirt and a chunky knit.
If you're feeling brave, then try these.
Style Notes: No surprises here: Animal prints are still in, and it's python print you need to look to for autumn/winter. You'll wear this sassy footwear with anything from jeans and a roll-neck to your party dress.
 Go all-out with these showstoppers.
Best worn with indigo denim and a white shirt.
If you're in the market for a designer pair, try the Rylee ankle boot.
 Or keep it classic in a pointed flat from Mango.
Style Notes: As for colour, it seems that ice-cream shades continue to dominate, with pinks, lilacs, powder blues, yellows and greens being the preferred shades to be seen in right now. 
Perfect for adding colour to your weekend wardrobe.
This powder blue pair shot straight to the top of our new-season wish list.
We're still investing in all things lilac.
Chic boots like this from Mansur Gavriel do little to dull the hype around the pink trend.
Style Notes: Slouchy boots are one of the biggest and most wearable trends to emerge last season. And now, just in time for autumn, some of our favourite brands are lining their rails with every possible option, from mid-height to over-the-knee, leather to suede, burgundy to bright whites—you're guaranteed to find the perfect pair here. 
Low heels are great for off-duty dressing.
You'll wear these on repeat.
For something statement, try this red pointed pair from Zara.
Or, for something a little less daring, try something suede with a sturdy, manageable heel.
Style Notes: We don't need much convincing to invest in a super-practical, flat pair of boots. From white Chelsea styles to hiking boots with bold laces,  - we've lost count of the number of influencers we've spotted wearing autumnal outfits with chunky flat ankle boots.
These will quite literally take you anywhere.
M&S has your white lace-up boot.
Style with a midi skirt and a roll neck knit.
