Summer is coming to an end, but fall fashion is among us—so we’ve picked out the 20 best heels to brighten your waning summer days. We’ve been looking forward to wearing fall 2013 trends for quite awhile now, and while we aren’t exactly running to put on our our oversized coats and leather pants—yet—we are stepping out in our new fall shoes. (Remember, fall is a transitional season after all.)
Lust-worthy shoes ruled the fall runways. From printed pony hair options, to leg-baring geometric cutouts to classic silhouettes reimagined with asymmetrical details. And lest we forget lace-up heels and ankle-strap booties, both of which are key silhouettes and just so happen to be perfect, transitional summer-to-fall shoes.
And since we’re all about giving you more bang for your buck, we’re here to remind you that if you’re going to splurge, make sure it’s worth it. So we’ve rounded up a selection of the 20 best heels to wear now and into fall. From Sophia Webster statement heels to Gianvito Rossi’s leopard stilettos, we promise you’ll get some mileage out of these must-haves. (Remember, as Jenna Lyons says, “As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.”)
