Fall shoe trends

2012 Fall shoe trends
I love fall and I really love shoes so I had to write about some of the new fall shoe trends I have been reading about and seeing.

There are so many shoe trends this fall so there is one for everyone!  I do have my favorites....

We need to start off talk about boots!

Knee-High boots:
This style is back and looks even sleeker this fall.  I recommend having at least one black and brown pair of knee high boots for fall/winter.  I also have a blond pair which I love and I am looking for a grey pair.  If you want to elongate your legs find a boot with a pointed toe.  It makes you legs look so long and amazing!

Flat Knee-High boots:
Another great boot style for a more casual look and great for weekends!  A flat boot is comfortable and look great with jeans, dresses and skirts.  Find a pair with some fun details on them to really show your personal style.

High-Heeled lace up boot:
A new boot trend this fall.  The lace up boot is very edgy and the high heel adds a level of sexiness.  They are a fun way to add a fun shoe if you have the a standard knee high boot.

Low-Heeled ankle boot:
These are always in style (thank God!) but this fall you are seeing more fun leather colors, animal prints and a more causal boot.  The style has a more rounded toe.  I am a huge fan of pointed toe shoe so I tend not to wear my grey rounded toe ankle boots.  I think this fall I need to pull them out of my closet.

Now let us shift gears to the menswear trend this fall in shoes.

Cap-Toe Oxfords:
The shoe is very comfortable and the cap-toe adds a pop to sharpen up any outfit.
They look great with jeans or if you want a men's wear twist to an outfit.  I don't own a pair but I might need to try these for a fun casual shoe.

High-Heeled Loafers:
The 90's loafer has had a face lift and looks sophisticated and sexy.  The high heeled loafer has a slimmer profile and added the high heel really makes a statement.  It is a great shoe to wear with a more traditional outfit to add a twist of freshness.  I am looking for a pair of these but not super high.  I need my heels 3" or lower.

Finally we shift to the 3 trends for the heel for this fall.

Evening T-Straps:
This retro style heel has reached new heights and are perfect for a night out!  Have fun with crystals, details, metallic colors, and shine.  This is the way to show your personality in your shoes.  They are very sexy and make a statement.

Ankle-Strap Pumps:
The little strap across the ankle is very flattering.  Find a pair in a fun color, material or animal print to make a simple outfit pop.  I have a few pairs of ankle strap pumps that I wear to work and they also are great with jean or going out.

High-Heeled Mary Janes:
I do love the simple school girl Mary Janes and this fall they are making them sexier.  The profile is slimmer and I also have seen some Mary Janes with a pointed toe instead of the standard rounded toe.  I would love a pair of these in my closet. I think the desire happened when I watched Sex and The City and Carrie found the black patent leather  Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes in Vogue.  I love that show and I think there is a little bit of Carrie in me.

Shoe love affair

Many of you how do know me knows I love shoes and I express myself and my mood through my shoes and fashion.  I also have been very inspired by Sex and the City so I wanted to share my shoe closet with you all.

I will never count how many pairs I own but I love my shoe collection and ladies, you just need to have fun with shoes since they can make any simple outfit make a statement.

Enjoy the fall shoe trends and I am looking for my high heeled Mary Janes!
