Happy Fall to all my fashionistas! I know many of you might not be crazy about the fall because it is so close to winter, but I love it. The beautiful colours, the crisp cool air, and of course – the new shoe trends. Every season brings with it so many great new trends for your feet.
I know many of you out there will be glad to hear that the Chunky Heel is back! I was ecstatic to hear that, as I find them much easier to walk in than your classic stiletto, and they look fabulous with dress pants, or a great pair of jeans. The cool thing about the chunky heel coming back is that this season’s selection features chunky heels in a wide variety of heights, including lower heels for when you are feeling that vintage outfit, and when the retro mood hits, the higher chunky heels are there for you.
The Classic Pump is also making a comeback. I’m talking about the classic pointy-toe shoe, with that soft almond shaped toe. Just so we’re clear, I’m not talking about those really elongated pumps. The classic pump really is a shoe that fits nicely into your fall wardrobe. It can be dressy and business casual, is a great compliment to any outfit.
For those of you who don’t like to wear high heels, and prefer a flat shoe, this Fall offers your feet a treat. There are quite a few great styles for the Fall, so I just picked a couple of my favorites.
The Dress Loafer is the first. This shoe gets its inspiration from men’s smoking slippers. These come in a variety of materials, but my personal favorites are the lush materials like velvet and suede. These loafers are dressy, comfortable and streamlined like the slippers that inspired them. They come in a variety of rich colors like black, plum and burgundy, and for those of you with bolder tastes, you can get them with glittery finishes, embellishments, and even in animal prints.
The second choice for flat trendy fall shoes is the Neon Sole Oxford. Oxfords have been popular for a few seasons, but this year they have been given a fun and funky upgrade with the neon sole. This shoe has been seen generally as a more masculine looking shoe, but with these new soles, it adds a great soft feel to them, and makes them just a little bit prettier.
The last trend that I’m truly excited about is the Chunky Ankle Boot. This style is the IT style for fall 2012, and I couldn’t be happier about that. I LOVE the ankle boot. They look great with dresses, jeans (bootcut, straight, and skinny), and dress pants, and are a must for any woman’s shoe collection. The heels of these boots, while offering a comfortable bit of height, are thick and sturdy, so you can wear them everyday.
As we all know, the weather in the Fall can be unpredictable, so no matter what shoes you are wearing, make sure you are protecting them. Tana® can help with that. When you purchase any new shoes or boots, please be sure to ask your Tana® dealer which products are right for the protection of your fabulous new shoes.
