Cool Fall Shoe Fashions!

Fall 2012 is an exciting time for fashion, especially when it comes to shoes. During the Fall 2012 Fashion Week we were able to preview some of the styles and trends for this season. There were dozens of hot shoe trends showcased in the different shows and we were able to gather that no matter what the trend or style there is one thing that is for certain this season, shoes will not be boring. From metallic colors to heavy embellishments, shoes this fall are unique and full of character. Here are some of the hottest trends in women's shoes that we saw that are expected to make their way to retail stores.

Strappy Shoes
Expect to see straps everywhere whether on t-strap pumps or ankle strap flats. There are dozens of styles in leather, velvet, and suede Some shoes like the Jessica Simpson Bansi, a gorgeous bone colored t-strap platform with a silver, sequined platform and heel, take the trend even further and combine it with glittery details.

Ankle Boots
One of the season’s absolute must-haves is a pair of ankle boots. They are extremely versatile and can be worn with skinny jeans, dresses, or skirts. They are also extremely comfortable and ideal for those who spend last season struggling finding knee-high boots for their toned calves. Ankle boots are showing up in solid colors, wedge or flat heels, or in different patterns, such as leopard prints. The KORS by Michael Kors Marden ankle boot has a small heel that is comfortable enough to walk in for hour, yet still adds a bit of height.

Pointy Pumps
One of the classics that is making a comeback this season is the classic, lady-like pointy-toe pump. You will see them in a range of colors and materials. Many designers are giving this eternal classic a trendy twist and making them in bold colors, eye-catching patterns, and the very trendy metallic cap toe. These BCBGeneration Cielo Pumps are a gorgeous example of an effective use of classic style paired with bold color.

Gold Accents
This fall season, shoes are looking very luxe with gold embellishments and accents. Bold colored ballet flats with gold heels have already been spotted on trendsetting celebrities like Kate Bosworth. Boots are also sporting this trend with gold metal accents and luxe hardware. Some, like the Steve Madden Boldd, are daring with eye-catching embellishments such as gold spikes.

The Slip-On
One of the biggest trends this fall that you definitely see on the streets is the slip-on loafer. It has already become very popular and can be seen everywhere. It is not a surprise that this shoe would become immensely popular because who wouldn’t like to wear their slippers to work or on a day out on town. Slip-on loafers come in every possible material, color, pattern, and style. One of my favorites is the Marc Jacobs Slip On Loafer in a gold sequin fabric. This style is very unique and can even be worn for going out when paired with a mini skirt or a party dress.
