Fall Shoe Guide: 16 Fab Flats Under $80

Fall Flats Guide 2013

Don’t think we would leave you hanging without guiding you to the most tasteful and nifty flats fall has to offer! Autumn weather may tell you to stick to boots and sneakers, but let’s face it—a Budget Babe isn’t going to neglect her flats! (Shoes have feelings too, right?) We know you have the basics covered, so here we have an array of exceptional slip-ons, oxfords, and loafers to adorn your feet in and coordinate beautifully with your cozy layers.
1. Daily Look Smiling Cat Flats $30
Yes, we love these because yellow is a color of fall, but the adorable kitten face embroidered on the toes is what sold us. This shoe also comes in sky blue and black.

2. AEO Shimmer Scrunch Ballet Flat $30
Anything shimmery says, “the holidays are here!” Slip these glamorous babies on to jazz up a party outfit, or even add a bit of dressy flair to a day look.

3. Kohl’s Dana Buchman Smoking Flat $37 (Down from $65)
Here’s that cobalt blue again that no one can seem to get enough of! The metal buckle detail takes this basic smoking flat to an edgier level.

4. Topshop MANCE Pointed Lace-Up Shoes $55
Forget Dorothy’s sparkling red shoes—Topshop tops them all with these shiny wonders. Tapping your heels in them won’t get you home, but they’ll surely be envied by all who see them!

5. Sole Society Sweetheart Ankle Strap Flats $65
We’re all fastened in and ready for this new trend—ankle straps! The Sweetheart also combines this with the D’Orsay style, and the rich plum color seals the deal for a very girly shoe.

6. ALDO Clore Ballet Flat $60
Time to decorate! (Not your trees; it’s too early for that…) This standout teal flat is ornamented with a gold-tone leopard face on the top of the shoe—so chic!

7. GoJane Perforated Faux Nubuck Oxfords $26
Every woman should have a simple and clean pair of oxfords in her closet. This classic shoe is adaptable to skirts/dresses or jeans, and can be worn for a more formal setting or just walking the street.

8. Forever21 Bold Plaid Flats $17
Not sure if you’re bold enough for the raging plaid trend that’s all around us? Take baby steps and try out this pointed-toe flat—easy to incorporate with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater!

9. Lulu’s Bamboo Object 26 D’Orsay Pointed Flats $23
D’Orsay flats have caught on like wildfire; celebs love them! Lulu’s gives you the everyday black flat with the ultimate cutout.

10. Nine West Blustery Round Toe Flat $59
Just the name “Blustery” qualifies this pretty pair of flats for our list! They are a breath of fresh air with cool, blue tones amongst a sea of the predictable warm hues of fall.

11. Mossimo Lisa Camo Flat $18
Want to try the camo trend without looking like you're ready for combat? Give this print a go on a comfy flat with a feminine pointy toe - it's soft and tough at the same time.

12. Nomad Leopard Shoe $50
No way leopard was escaping this list! It is a popular print for standard ballet flats, so let your feet growl for attention in these spotted lace-ups.

13. Not Rated Anita Sparkle Flats $40
Keep the flower power alive with these dainty lace-ups! Wear them with tights and a flared skirt for an ultra-feminine look.
