Fabulous Fall Footwear
You’re never fully dressed without a smile…and a fabulous pair of shoes. This fall’s line-up certainly has us grinning from ear to ear. Rich nubuck leathers, classic prints, retro shapes and bold colors are where it’s at. Take a herringbone-printed smoking shoe out for a spin, it’s the latest evolution of the flat. Go retro with a platform sandal, specifically designed for flares and maxis. Pointy toe pumps and the wedge loafer make your 9-to-5 more fun, while sexy nubuck booties and distressed Chelsea booties are best for afterhours adventures. Try out this season’s hottest trends with this line-up:
1. Kate Spade New York Licorice Satin Pumps ($298)
The pointy toe pump. Lively leopard spots add a polished punch to a pencil skirt and cardigan, but can go on an afterhours prowl as well. Sateen heels with a covered stiletto heel, leather lining and sole.
2. Sam Edelman Alvin Smoking Slipper Flats ($150)
The smoking shoe. A kick-y take on men’s loungewear, the smoking shoe is the latest evolution in flats. Toss the ballerinas for awhile, because these Sam Edelmans are perfect with skinny jeans and a cozy knit, too. Sateen flats with a houndstooth check pattern and solid piping.
3. Jill Stuart Ingrid Suede Platform Wedge Loafers ($595)
The loafer. Pennies or not, the loafer is fall’s freshest take on footwear. Add a platform, a sky high wedge, and do it all up in supple suede…you can’t call these your mother’s (or father’s) loafers. Perfect for on or off the clock.
4. Report Signature Malverne Platform Wedges ($250)
The fall sandal. Thought sandal season was over? Think again. Report Signature takes a little bit of summer into the next season with these wedges. Pair with flares or maxi skirts. Open-toe, colorblock suede wedges with a lace-up closure and side and heel cutouts.
5. Rachel Zoe Bella Platform Booties ($425)
The sexy bootie. Rachel Zoe’s spin on the bootie is spot on. Gorgeous navy nubuck is set off by rows of gold buttons and an ankle cuff. Stacked platform and covered stiletto heel.
6. Sam Edelman Parley Zip Side Booties:
The Chelsea bootie. Perfect weekend wear, these booties can go preppy or boho, depending on your mood and styling. Distressed leather with zipper detail and elastic gore side insets. Rubbed toe and heel cap.
