It's fall! Well, as its as close to fall as Nashville gets. In September we decide to pull out the boots, fashion scarves and hit the town. There are so many great looks this fall, I want to break it up into bite size pieces. So we will start from the toes up and highlight must have shoe styles this fall. Thanks to Belk VP of Fashion and Trend Direction, Arlene Goldstein for her great fall media preview. Follow her @BelkFashionBuzz
1. The ankle boot- don't skimp on this one. If you get one new boot this year, invest in a quality and special ankle boot. Yes, you will see lace, camo, snake skin,etc. But don't get intimidated by the flash, go classic with a beautiful black or brown leather. Remember you will be wearing this with skirts, dresses, jeans; really everything. So stay sexy but realistic.
2. The single soled pump-we've been living in our platforms for a while now and it can be a hard move back. But this is where it all began ladies. Most recently reminiscent of the 80's the single soled pointy toe has been a classic. Sleek and sexy, you are always well dressed. But don't worry, you can still slip into your platforms, they aren't gone for good.
3.The perfect flat-I have to confess, I'm generally not a flat girl, but who can resist the pizazz of this season's flats. Keep it funky with a menswear inspiration, like a tassel or wing tip. No need to feel like you are losing fashion when you step a few inches down into something more comfortable.
4. Something embellished- this is your freebie! Whether it's a boot, heel or flat, you need a pair with extra zsa zsa zsoo. Covered in lace, studs, camo, buckles, fringe; doesn't matter, really just make it over the top. Here is where you punctuate your fall style channeling your inner rock star.
Have fun shoe shopping, and stay tuned as we make our way through your fall must haves.
