Though "fall cleaning" isn't a thing, it really should be. Fall is one of the most exciting times for our closets, as we capitalize on the plethora of fresh trends the new season brings, stock up on layering pieces, and generally get in the back-to-school mentality (even if we're just going back to work). I, for one, have been shopping quite a bit since the beginning of the month, and since my closet has been seeing quite a few new additions, I'm inciting a "one in, one out" rule.
To be clear, the shoe trends I'm ditching are the ones that have served their time in my closet, meaning they've been around for a few seasons now, and my hype about them is finally starting to fade. If you don't plan on letting go of the following styles anytime soon, that's fine by me. Take this with a grain of salt because I'm purely sharing how I plan on freshening up my own shoe rack for the season ahead. If you're also in the mood for a little fall cleaning or you're just curious to see which shoes to ditch for fall according to me, simply continue on below.
