Five Fabulous Fall Shoe and Boot Trends

FALL STYLE GUIDE |SHOE & BOOT TRENDS FOR FALL
Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal-Flower d'Orsay Sandal
There are so many hot trends for this Fall 2015 season, but of course the one trend that really caught my attention, was seeing the beautiful embellishments and bling, on the shoes and boots. Several designers such as Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Casadei, and Giuseppe Zanotti added bling to their collections. A statement making pump, sandal, or boot, bejeweled with Swarovski crystals, sequins, beads, or appliques, is an easy way draw attention to any outfit. The perfect glamorous accessory, for a night out, or for the upcoming holiday season. Above is the gorgeous suede Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal-Flower D'Orsay Sandal, stunning, with a crystal flower detail accent on the ankle. Get your glitz and glam on, because bling is in!

Jimmy Choo Hoops Lace-Up Leather Pump
We saw a lot of gladiator or lace-up styles on the Spring and Summer runways, so if you missed it, don't worry because it's sticking around for this Fall. Join in on this hot trend, with of a pair of lace-up sandals, pumps, or boots...a perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. Several designers embraced this trend with intertwining lace-up details. You can start with a simple pair of ballerina flats upgraded with chic lace-up details. Jimmy Choo used this fabulous trend with the Hoops Lace-Up Leather Pumps, shown above in black, red, and pink. This lace-up trend also made an appearance in booties, as well as knee-high and thigh high boots. So you may need an extra few minutes to "tie one on," but it will be worth the effort for this dramatic and chic look!
