The paraphrased old saying goes that you can tell everything about a woman by the shoes she wears. This season is no different. Your shoes will definitely make the woman. Here's a look at seven styles for fall and how to make a statement wearing them.
Here's a shoe that will keep you comfortable until spring -- the knee-high boot. Look for an assortment of heels, from stacked to flat, or go for some accoutrements such as buckles, studs or zippers. Pair these boots with your favorite work dress layered with opaque hose.
These heels have the height of stilettos but lack the discomfort, all because of their thick platform in the front. Just about every pattern, material and heel from chunky to thin takes a turn on this style. You can wear platforms with a mini-dress, and then lengthen your legs by wearing opaques in a color that comes close to the color of your shoes.
PUMP IT UP
The perenial favorite pump returns this fall, only this time it adorns itself in patent leather for a chic look. This girl loves to hang with a pencil skirt for a classic look.
This classic style from the '40s stages a comeback in updated metallics, saucy colors and crystal embellishments. The peep-toe shoe finds itself on the red carpet a lot this fall, especially since it can elongate your legs and add a new point of curiousity for men. This shoe is another friend of the opaque tight. Try a contrasting color for a dynamic look.
The ankle boot can give your outfit a structured refinement available from few other shoes. Try tucking your skinny jeans into the boots or pair them with your wide-legged pants.
Friend to the ankle boot, shoe boot returns this fall to complete your menswear-inspired looks. These lace-up shoes with skyscraper heels look good with a skirt or pants.
IN THE FLATS
Your ballet flats will scream look at me, look at me when they come with ruffles, bows, lace or finished in velvet or patent leather. Pair these with your easy-going wide-legged cropped pants.
