It’s that time again! One of our very favorite monthly posts where we share the major trends Shoe Lovers are buzzing about on Wanelo. And this month, you guys didn’t disappoint. With the fall season well underway, there were soooo many new styles from our best brands, lust-worthy new colors, and plenty of pretty prints. But these three trends kept popping up over and over again, so we got the message loud and clear: you guys are ALL about styles with a little something extra! A fabulous animal print, gold buckles, interesting zippers—they make shoes and handbags that much more fabulous. See what styles topped our Wanelo Shoe Lovers’ lists, then add ’em to your own!

If you don’t have leopard print shoes in your closet, it’s about time you changed that. There’s honestly no better season to invest in a quality pair because this fierce print is all over! Booties like the Palace or ankle strap flats like the Elka are fresh takes on this timeless look. Looking for something a little more classic? Leopard print heels like the insanely gorgeous Giuseppe Zanotti pair are your best bet because it’s that rare shoe that works in all seasons. And we’ve said it before—leopard is a neutral. Print perfection!

Steve Madden Palace Bootie $99.95 (Compare at $150!), Steven by Steve Madden Elka Flat $59.95 (Compare at $99!), Giuseppe Zanotti Leopard Pony Hair Platform Pumps $299.95 (Compare at $670.00)

Fringe boots: they’re a little bit retro, a little bit western. The fringe details on the Raven and the Sake boots had us instantly wanting both pairs! But the Lucky Nirvana suede bag really amps up this look with fringe detail all across the front! Plus the gold details and cool chain accents will make any gal a boho babe.

GC Shoes Raven $59.95 (Compare at $90!), Lucky Nirvana Crossbody Bag $99.95 (Compare at $168!), Qupid Sake-11 Bootie $39.95 (Compare at $53!)

Boots came back in a BIG way this time, and the styles we’re coveting have a few things in common: details, details, details! Especially cool straps with buckles and snaps that lend that cool-girl vibe to classic pairs (like the Dewberry riding boot). Of course we’re also digging casual styles like the Master and the Watchman lace-up boot, which add a little combat boot flair. No matter your boot preference, you can’t go wrong in any of these picks.

Tommy Hilfiger Dewberry Riding Boot $149.95 (Compare at $189!), Madden Girl Master Riding Boot $79.95 (Compare at $100!), White Mountain Watchman Combat Bootie $59.95 (Compare at $89!)
