Sport fall’s hottest looks on your feet
“Women can be whoever they want to be this fall when it comes to shoe fashion,” says style expert Wendy Albert, Senior Director of Marketing at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood; and what fashion-loving woman doesn’t want to experiment with a variety of fashion personalities? After all, there’s no such thing as trend loyalty, and every fashionista suffers from a touch of style schizophrenia. No other season caters to such a desire for diversity like fall 2013; and no other category of fashion will satisfy and make you swoon like shoes.
“If they [women] are feeling sexy, they can put on a pair of thigh-high boots in leather or even sumptuous materials such as fur or velvet,” Albert explains, further advising that, “Women should take advantage of all of the style options that will be available and look for details such as cut-outs in boots and booties – especially open toe booties.”
Trends from last year continue to thrive during this one, such as red and wine hues and menswear inspired looks. But the difference between this year’s lust-inducing shoe silhouettes and last year’s is simply a style evolution.
Take the classic pump for instance. This season’s pump toe has turned pointy and its sole is now single. You don’t need to entirely retire your platform shoes, but let them hibernate for a moment. Albert encourages shoe lovers to embrace the change. This evolution has actually made shoes feel more comfortable, with supportive stacked heels and pretty flat alternatives that your feet will adore.
Boots range from equestrian looks to femme-fatale sexy to girlishly prissy, while 1940s Gatsby glamour has influenced the return of the T-strap. And what about color? Rich jewel tones continue to dominate the shoe scene with Pantone’s color of the year, emerald, making the most stunning statement.
