New season, new shoe trends. Yes, as we start switching up our wardrobes for autumn/winter it's also time to embrace all the fabulous new footwear offerings in stores now. Here's the Marie Claire guide to the new styles you need to know about.

From sturdy block heel sandals to sleek minimalist sock boots, crisp white trainers to sky-high metallic heels - there's a whole host of covetable options to tempt you to try something new.

Colour-wise, autumn traditionally favours darker shades but the fashion world have fallen hard for baby pink. Brocades and metallics are still going strong.

Anything lace-up and suede will dress-up your denim with ease. Look to Also for slick Christmas party styles, and Asos for chic flat options.

Perhaps the easiest, and most wearable trend of the bunch, the trainer really is the do-it-all, enduring style hero for AW16. Axel Arigato has it covered with its cool takes on catwalk trends. And Common Projects will forever be one of our favourite posh trainer brands.

Ballet flats have had a new-season makeover and now comes with dramatic ankle lace ups. Miu Miu have the dream-version and we're obsessed with the punky black velvet style.

Whether you're planning to recharge your workwear wardrobe or slip into something new for autumn - we've got all the hottest styles in our new season edit.
