We're fairly certain the weather in Los Angeles right now is distinctly more summery than it is autumnal, but some celebs—such as the ever fashion-forward Hailey Bieber—have skipped right on ahead to the new season. "So long, holiday sandals," she said (we imagine) a few weeks ago and has since been dedicating her footwear choices to styles and trends that tap into the A/W 19 lineup instead.
Everyone has been talking about the model this week thanks to her highly documented Vogue Paris editorial, where the team styled both her outfits and the backdrops to re-create some of Princess Diana's most iconic fashion moments. We'll take a royal flashback any day of the week, but it's worth looking into Bieber's personal wardrobe to get some real-time inspiration for the months ahead.
From cowboy boots (along with the most up-to-date way to wear them) through to the high-heel styling hack all of the Scandi girls are doing, keep scrolling to see the autumn shoe trends Hailey has already laid claim to.
1. ANKLE-TIE HEELS
On Hailey Bieber: Alexander Wang top; Balenciaga bag and shoes
Style Notes: Following the lead of many a Scandi girl (and Zara's stylists), Hailey chose to wrap up these Balenciaga pumps around the ankles of her trousers. The move might seem alien right now, but trust us when we say everyone will give it a go at fashion week this month.
On Hailey Bieber: Vetements T-shirt; Levi's jeans; Chanel bag and earrings; Golden Goose boots
Style Notes: Cowboy boots have slowly but surely been working their way back into fashion favour, and now they're suddenly everywhere for autumn and winter. We like how casually she's styled these with baggier jeans—far cooler than what we did with them in 2004.
Style Notes: Thanks to Bottega Veneta's comeback and a shouty shade of turquoise making its way into both It shoes and accessories, we're predicting that this colour will continue to be on the rise for the season ahead. Very good with denim, as exemplified by HB here.
4. CHUNKY SNEAKS
On Hailey Bieber: Drew House T-shirt; Comme des Garçons x Nike sneakers
Style Notes: From this collab with Comme and Nike through to niche labels like Eytys, super-stacked trainers are looking like they'll take pole position in the comfy-shoe race for autumn. Wear them with anything and everything you feel happy with, even if that's no pants and just a tee from Justin Bieber's fashion line.
