Fall 2012 shoe alert
We’re seeing a few prominent shoe trends for Fall 2012- metallic leathers, revamped silhouettes, color blocking, pointed-toe, and sky high heels.
Boots are always a staple for Fall. This season the classic riding boot will be getting a lot of attention. Gucci and Givenchy are among a handful of designers who showcased riding boots in their Fall ’12 collections. For a wallet-friendly version, check out the sleek riding boots from Guess. For a take on the Fall utilitarian trend, wear these boots with super skinny denim and a cable knit sweater. If you’re ready to get out of your black boot rut (and you should be), opt for a printed ankle boot and pair with your favorite LBD.
Next, we’re onto the pointed-toe shoe trend. Pointed toe offers such a sexy and sophisticated shape, but yet are very versatile. Try a metallic pointed-toe pump, like the Kesli Dagger two-toned pair (shown above) for a modern twist. Pair them with anything from ultra-skinny denim to a midi-length dress. If you’re more of a “flats” type of gal, pair pointed-toe flats with cropped trousers. Don’t be afraid to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn a little!
The wedge is a style of shoe that comes and goes, and for Fall 2012 they are big in a whole new way. We introduce the ultra-wedge, as seen at Helmut Lang and Stella McCartney. Try an ankle strap ultra-wedge, like the pair by L.A.M.B. and wear them with a pleated dress and tights to add a little edge to a ladylike look. You can also keep your look casual by pairing them with your favorite wide leg denim and t-shirt for that cool bohemian vibe.

Many shoes produced by Jeffrey Campbell (and other companies like, Aldo) tend to be a “re-created” version of higher-end labels. The architectural wooden heel of the JC Brisbane boot is similar to the Marni wedges seen on the Fall 2010 runway. And the JC Lace-Up boot resembles the Ann Demeulemeester boots (which cost about $1500) from last season.
If Jeffrey Campbell shoes are out of your price range…check out Forever21 or H&M…they tend to do a good knock-off!
Hunter Welly’s are for lounging
Hunter Boot Welly Warmers ($30) have been around for a few season. But they’ve recently come into style as fashionable lounge-wear stockings. Welly Warmers are available in a variety of colors, making this a great gift for even your most difficult friend, you know – the one who only wears pink (ew). And of course, if you already own Hunter Rain Boots purchasing a pair of Welly Warmers is a no brainer. (If you don’t own Hunter Rain Boots, you’re missing out)
