The first day of Fall is upon us and in my neck of this woods this time of year provides a tiny window of opportunity for some of my shoes. Here are 4 must wears for right now! This is the best time for pumps and booties, open or closed. It’s okay to add a tight or a sock. Make the most of your color palette and look to nature for cues-warm golds, oranges and browns; deep reds and greens; and light reflecting metallics, fall’s finest. Wear ’em while you can.
First up-the caged option. In flats, heels or booties, this gives you the structure of fall with the openness of summer. My personal fave for this year the Fluevog take. Note the talon-like toe detail. The open shoe helps the black look lighter.
Closely related is the perforated option. Laser-cutting has made this design detail available at every price point. Look for it in a bootie as a nice transition from summer to fall. Metallics are still hot and they are a neutral. This is a versatile choice. Imagine a colored tight peeking through in a week or two.
Hopefully it will stay dry for the next few weeks and that will give me the option of trotting out my calf-hairs and suedes. I’ve got a couple of options of each. Here are two that are perfect for right now.
You can NEVER go wrong with a cowboy style boot, bootie or shoe. These calf-hair beauties in leopard work just as well with shorts or dresses as the do with jeans. I can dress them for work or play.
The Oxford is especially on trend this year. In the best cases it is the perfect marriage of femininity and masculinity. In suede with a 3 inch kitten heel these by Splendid project just the right level of bad ass.
