FASHION MUST HAVES FOR FALL: Shoe Edition

Fall is a great time layer on your personality!  It is so much fun to layer your turtlenecks under fur or under leather. It is fun to swap denim for skinny corduroys with knee high boots.  Layer on on the accessories to enhance a basic ALL black outfit.

But what is better to pulling an outfit together that the PERFECT PAIR of shoes?  Nothing.

So, I have put my 3 favorite shoes below to help you with the must haves (and how to wear them) and LINKS (click on any product image) to buy them.

Happy Shopping!

BOOTS:

Boots are my favorite footwear during the fall. There are also so many options available: over the knee, flat, heel, wedge, pointed toe, ankle, etc. There is honestly a boot to go with every outfit style. There are boots for casual outfits, dressing up and office. Here are a few “how to” wear each boot:

Over the knee: Always look for a boot that is shorter BEHIND the knee. This is for 2 reasons.  It is 100% more comfortable when you are sitting.  The height difference allows for the knee to bend.  Also, it is more flattering.. you don’t want the boot to create a “muffin top” around your thigh.   How to wear it in a look:

CASUAL: Skinny jeans and a cape.  Wear boots over skinny jeans.  OR DRESSING UP: boho dress, hat, fur vest.

Stylist Tip: Having a boot with little or no detail will help elongate the legs, especially when they are the same color as your bottoms (tights / pants or skirt)

Ankle boots: get an ankle boot that comes up to the skinniest part of your ankle., every one has a different place.  If you have a larger calf, get an ankle bootie that angels forward a bit in the front.  How to wear it in a look:  Wear an oversized turtleneck, matching blazer, belt and distressed jeans. CASUAL: Roll the bottom of the jeans slightly or OFFICE: pleated skirt, tucked in blouse, statement necklace.

LOAFERS:

loafer style

Don’t laugh. Penny loafers may make you nostalgic of your grandfather’s footwear, but been coming up in popularity since 1992. Loafers have danced in the the hottest runways both this season and past, with names like Gucci and Wes Gordon, concentrating on the masculine vibes. Why do I love them so much?  Loafers are easy to walk in. There’s no staggering in stilettos or gasping from pinched toes.  There is a loafer out there waiting to be added to your wardrobe.  Leather, patent, studded, or color, we promise you will love this trend.

MAXIMUM INSTEP; Embellished SHOES

crazy shoes, simple outfit

One word used to describe the footwear of the fall runways: inventive. There was definitely no lack of originality displayed through styles such as furry boots, crystal covered heels, pink pom poms  and over the top embellishments.

How to wear it: Pair a statement shoes with a midi skitr for a more understated look, or a mini skirt for a night out on the town.  Keep your outfits simple: Think denim and neutrals and let the shoe really shine.maximun instep 1
