The 13 Cutest Fall Flats for Back to School

8. Cute Fall Sandals

Brandee Flats, Nasty Gal, $50

These flats are perfect for the start of fall when the weather is still great, and you can easily save them for next summer – you can’t go wrong with faux suede flats. Instead of just being dull, black flats, these shoes are spiced up with a little stud detail on the straps. Whether you’re looking for shoes to go with your new party outfit or you’re just going shopping, these will look great with almost any outfit. These will also go great with leather – one of the biggest trends this fall – whether you want to wear a leather jacket or even leather pants.

9. Stylish Capped-Toe Flats

DV by Dolce Vita Laria Flat, DSW, $59.95

These DV by Dolce Vita flats incorporate the toe cap trend, but these shoes have the added benefit of coming in a great color: we love this blue! These will look great with jeans, giving your outfit a great pop. On top of this, the cut out detail at the side of the shoe makes them even more stylish.

10. Staple Leather Loafers

Soft Leather Loafers, Zara, $69.90

Be sure not to be caught without loafers this fall – they’re some of the comfiest flat shoes around, and they look great at the same time! Nude is an excellent color for loafers, especially for fall, since it goes well with fall colors.

11. Sparkly Party Shoes

Shiny Ballerina Slingbacks with Bow, Zara, $79.90

Imagine wearing these with simple blue denim and a plain blouse – such a clean, elegant look. These flats will add a bit of sparkle to any outfit. Pair them with jeans during the day or a colorblocked skirt or blazer at night for a party and you’re set, Cinderella! The extra bow detail makes these shoes must-haves for any collegiette.

12. Gorgeous Velvet Loafers

Isola Nylah Flats, Nordstrom, $89.95

Who said simple loafers had to be boring? They come in three great colors: black, blue and bordeaux, so no matter what color you’re looking to add to your wardrobe this fall, you should be able to find a pair of these flats to suit you. The simple bow design is so sweet and adds a little extra interesting detail to these beautiful velvet shoes. Be careful – don’t wear these beauties on a rainy day! We’re absolutely in love with these flats; they’re definitely a splurge worth every cent.

13. Splurge Black Flats

MICHAEL Michael Kors Fulton Ballet Flats, Nordstrom, $109.95

A good pair of black flats is definitely worth the investment! These would be great for internships, interviews or any professional occasion. The quilted design and MK badge make these so much more fun than simple black shoes! Make sure you don’t head back to college without a pair of shoes like these – you’ll be surprised how often you need them. You can’t go wrong with black ballet flats, and these are just about as cute as they get!


There are some great trends this fall, especially bright blazers and printed pants, and you’re going to need shoes to go with all of them! If you buy nothing else this fall, be sure not to get caught without loafers, brightly colored shoes and staple black flats.
