4 Reasons Why Sneakers Will Be Your Fave Fall Shoe

If you’re anything like us, you just can’t imagine your summer wardrobe without a pair of Keds in heavy rotation. The chic sneakers are about as easy to slip into as a sundress or cutoffs, and add the same sporty polish to any outfit they’re paired with. But this year, your reasons to love the iconic plimsolls don’t have to halt when the temperature starts to dip. With the launch of the footwear brand’s new-for-fall styles, you’ll want to start living in your Keds nearly year round.


Trust us, the leap from sandals to ankle boots is a tough one, and Keds’ classic shapes + seasonal hues are what make them the ultimate transition shoes. So whether you’re ready to don a pair of socks or not, check out these four ways to style your sneakers from now through fall, inspired by Ked’s own fall lookbook.

1. Add a Pop of Color to Your Denim: Let your shoes add the wow-factor to your fave fall outfit. Even though there are a few ways to turn up wardrobe basics with a pop of color, lacing up a pair of bold colored sneakers ($50) might be the comfiest one.

2. Yet Another Way to Layer: Made with a cozy felt upper, consider these kicks ($50) another way to layer. They look especially rad with knit over-the-knee socks!

3. Tie Together Your Peppiest Patterns: Don’t even think about stashing away the playful prints until next year! Mix and match from head to toe with Keds’ girly floral patterns and graphic starbursts (both $50).

4. Match Your Fave Fall Colors: Find fall’s most luxe jewel tones on your feet with these classic canvas kicks ($45) that have us singing If you liked it then ya should’ve put a sneak on it!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.
