The return of the square toe for fall 2020

fall shoe trends square toes

Square toe shoes for fall 2020: black stamped croc pumps / (My toes love these shoes!)

The square toe was a huge shoe trend ten to twelve years ago. Over the past few years it has been trying to make a comeback. For summer 2020, we saw several designers give their sandals a square toe; marking a comeback for the toe shape.

As we move into the fall 2020 season, the square toe is taking the fashion world by storm. Many designers included square toe styles in their collections, giving buyers a choice between more traditional, rounded toes, and the edgier square toe. Which will you choose?

Fall 2020 is giving us a lot of classic looks for the season, so why not mix things up with a square toe? This toe shape is proving to be able to make a comeback right now. This signals potential growth for the trend as we move in the 2021 seasons. We will start to see more shoes in the winter and spring seasons reflecting the squared off toe box on boots, loafers, pumps, and sandals. It’s the hottest shoe trend in town!

I absolutely adore the square toe for the fall. This shoe style offers more room for your toes! A roomy toe box is key when you do a lot of walking and standing. Toes can sit in a more natural state within the shoe, instead of being crammed into a pointy toe which does nothing but cause pain. Loving this trend!

Fall 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe

It’s time to talk shoes!! Don’t we love shoes 🙂 The fall 2020 season is a season of comfort, practicality, and function. That being said, there is no reason we can’t rock the current shoe trends!

When it comes to shoes, fall 2020 is all about the rise of the square toe, stamped croc, the return of the lug sole (which I am skipping until winter), simple platform sneakers, and fabulous slippers. There is also a classic vibe in shoes; which brings back classic loafers, loafer pumps, and loafer slides.

While we all look at the current trends, and would love to rock them, sometimes we need to pick and choose in order to make our wardrobes work. This season, I am keeping things classic. I plan to rock the square toe, but on a simple pump. I am also re-wearing some shoes from previous seasons since they are either classic, or still on trend; such as platform sneakers, snakeskin boots, and slides.

The trends I am putting off for now include combat boots, lug sole loafers, log sole boots, and square toe sandals. I don’t really wear open toe in the fall, and I am not really in a lug sole mood; despite their emergence this season as an important trend. I want to keep my footwear simple and comfortable. My sneakers are super comfy, and of course these slippers will get a lot of use!

Boots are always comfortable, and these two pairs from last year are still on trend, and perfect to wear this autumn season. I invested in a new pair of loafers, since stamped croc is hotter than hot this season. These loafers will last several seasons since they are a classic style. Love that!

I’m excited to be able to re-wear so many shoes this season, and also have some variety to pair with my fall 2020 capsule wardrobe. When shopping your shoe closet for fall, look for classic styles such as loafers and neutral booties. If you have platform sneakers, rock them this season! Also, if you have any square toe pumps from last time they were hot, bring them back to the front of your closet.

What to invest in for fall 2020. If you don’t have shoes which fit into the current trends, I highly recommend investing in a pair of loafers, loafer slides, square toe pumps, platform sneakers, and fuzzy slippers. These are classic, or long lasting trends to look forward to for several seasons; if not years!

Fall 2020 wish lists

Fall 2020 handbag wish list from top left: Small shoulder bag / semi-circle shoulder bag / grey soft satchel / black puffy woven bag /

Can you believe fall is in roughly one month?! I cannot wait! It has been over 90 degrees here in the San Francisco Bay Area along with massive wildfires. Our air has been humid, smoky, and very hot. The cooler fall season cannot come soon enough!

This fall season I plan to keep my clothing simple and classic. To compliment this timeless vibe, I am wishing for a few fabulous handbags to spice up my looks. These four handbags would do just that; while reflecting current trends. Love!

I love my puff clutch, and this mini version with a strap; it’s a great alternative to the clutch. It fits right into the puffy clutch trend, yet offers a convenient strap. Love a strap!

How cool is this semi-circle handbag?! It is handmade in Italy, and so unique. I love the classic hue and eye catching design. This is a bag collectors must-have. I plan to place my order soon!

You know I love Antigona! I have my eye on this pretty grey soft version which just came out this season. I cannot decide between the medium and small sizes, so I am waiting until a size speaks to me. Which do you prefer?

Lastly, this puffy, woven shoulder bag is a current IT bag on the streets. I love it and feel like I need it in my life. It comes in several colors, but classic black speaks to me. What do you think?

 

Fall 2020 shoes wish list from top left: grey stamped croc loafers / classic black loafers / black tie up combat boots / square toe stamp croc pumps /

I have a good stock of booties from last fall, and the fall before. This fall season I feel like I need to up my classic loafer game, add a pair of trendy combat boots, and refresh my black pumps. After all, the square toe is back with a vengeance! It’s a must-have in everyone’s shoe wardrobe.

In addition to the square toe, stamped croc is hotter than hot this season. This pair of classic, stamped croc loafers is something I know I need in my life this fall. These pretty loafers come in too many colors to count. I am leaning towards the grey stamped croc. Which color is your favorite?

The black loafers pictured above are a closet staple, and they are timeless! I hope to add them to my closet this fall season. They are definitely an investment purchase I know I will enjoy for many years.

These combat boots remind me of high school when the lug sole was king. They have a fun ’90’s vibe, and they also look like they will be easy to walk in; and this season I need walkable shoes. What do you think of the combat boot trend? Are you jumping on the trend?

 

Fall 2020 home wish list from top left: foot rest-so perfect for underneath a desk! / hot/cool air purifier-must-have with all these wildfires in California! / area rug-this one is machine washable-love that! / chic umbrella-OK not really a home item but this one is super cool /

Well, three of the four items on my home wish list are actually home items. I included this umbrella because it’s fabulous and I feel like I need it in my life. Check out how the interior contrasts the exterior! Love that!

Also, I have three kids and hardwood floors. We have wanted to add a few rugs to our home for quite some time, and this one is neutral and washable. Yes, you read that right! You can throw this rug in the washing machine. I am not sure it would fit inside mine, but I will try! haha

With all these wildfires, I am more conscious of air pollution inside the home. My mom owns this hot/cool air purifier and she swears by it, so I feel like I need one too. When the fires are going, we can smell them inside the house, even with the windows shut. So, this seems like something we could use to help decrease the pollution inside our home from the smoke.

Lastly, I find myself constantly looking for a place to prop up my feet while I work. This foot rest is practical, and looks like it will offer me the comfort I need while I work from home.

What are you wishing for this fall season? Are you thinking about fall yet?

Thanks for stopping by!
