DALLAS, Aug 11, 2009 / FW/ — From bold colors to peep toes, it’s a shoe lovers heaven for Fall 2009
Bold & Bright
Bold and bright, shoes are appearing in all colors on the runway. They are displayed as almost a piece of art because of their exquisite fabrics and precise design.
Andy and Debb, Diesel, and Michael Kors show the two toned effect which can add spice to any outfit.
Shoes To a “T”
For all of you simple minimalists, this trend is for you. The T-strap shoe is something simple and delicate. They are flattering and never overbearing.
The T-strap is flattering with a cigarette pant or fitted leggings, and these fit perfectly with dresses and skirts.
Even though there is a strap around the ankle, they still have the capability to lengthen the leg because of the empty space it leaves at the top of the foot.
Some are more chunky than others, as seen by Nicole Miller, and some are dainty, reflected in Ralph Lauren’s design.
Peep toe shoes and booties is something that is completely welcome for fall.
It may seem different because of our inclination towards close toed shoes in the cold, but with the availability of knee high stockings and tights allows for our ability to sport this fabulous trend.
Pair them with anything under the sun-dresses, skirts, pants, and leggings.
These historically plain shoes that originated in Scotland and Ireland are making a comeback this fall, but they are showing to be not so simple.
Designers are changing the oxford image into something full of character by pairing them with playful dresses and calf high tights.
This shoe trend contributes to this season’s theme of androgyny because of their masculine association. Oxfords naturally exude a conservative connotation, but when mixed with color and converted into a pump, they take on a whole new essence.
