Save your summer sandals from being booted back into the corner of your closet as autumn approaches. Instead, give your shoes a second life this season by transitioning them into a hybrid-style that’s fall-friendly. Naturally, not all your sandals can segue seasons so easily, which is why you should select styles from your wardrobe with autumn-appropriate features. We’re talking chunky or wooden block heels, lots of straps and bold buckles, fringe finishes and rich, warm, earthy tones in leather or suede. Then, when the temperatures drop, add opaque tights or thick-knit wool socks to the mix to keep your summer footwear in heavy rotation throughout the year. Below, our tips for wearing socks and sandals the chic way.
