Yes,it is that time again.Time to find out what you are going to be obsessed with this Fall and Holiday season.After spending a whole day at Saks,Bloomingdales,Bergdorfs and about 17 other shoe stores here is what I think are the must haves for the season.
If you can only afford to add one shoe to your collection this season make sure it is a red one.The red boot was a stand out during fashion week and delightful variations of it are in the stores at every price point.The good news is that they are available in many heel heights and so many styles.Why red shoes you may ask?Well I will let David Bowie answer that one.”Put on you Red Shoes and dance the Blues“.So many of us have been having the blues lately so it is time to put on our red shoes and just dance.
This fabric that dominates holiday is now designers choice for the must have shoes.Never have I seen such a variety of velvet dazzlers.Do stay away from black and opt for one of the fabulous jewel tones that are dominating this trend.Sneaker lovers rejoice there are a slew of stunning comy,cozy versions for you this season.
This 80’s shoe trend is back full force force again but before you run to your attic and start rummaging for your vintage Dr Martens this season’s versions have a cool edge to them.The key to pulling them off is to pair them with very feminine pieces to create a cool girl vibe.
Boot lovers “Rejoice” this Fall is all about boots and another key trend is the urban take on traditional cowboy boots.The cowgirl boots have a fresh urban take that is cleaner and sexier.Go for edgier details like studs and embroidery.
The slouch boot is a fresh take on all the tall boots we have been seeing.They have a great casual vibe to them and if the knee high version is not your thing do get the cute bootie version.
Shine made a big splash on the runway and now makes a bigger splash on the real way.This trend was a major deal at Channel and Saint Laurent but is now at J Crew and Topshop.Silver is the big color but blue and red are also key.
Who said art is just for your wall.The major shoe designers have been inspired by art in a big way this season with the emphasis on sculptural heels.So if you are both an art lover and a shoe lover this is your season.
For shoes this season More is More and More is better.Embroidery,extravagant lace,pom poms and beading are lush,luxurious and over the top.To pull this trend off pair it with a simple outfit and let the shoe be the star.
“So remember holding up every successful women is a fabulous pair of shoes”
