Fall Footwear Fever

September 21

Ladies, we don’t want you to look up what’s hot and what’s not on Google for Fall trends. We’ve got you covered.

Here’s a heads up on the Top Footwear Looks for Fall 2019!

Shoe-Bling

Fall/Winter 2019 is not about to make a woman choose between stand-out shoes and stand-out jewelry. In this case, you can have it all with bits of shine attached to the material of the soles or dripping right from the ankle for some unapologetic opulence. I say – bring on the bling. I love a little sparkle!

Le Chateau

Animal Instincts

The fashion industry hasn’t had enough of fall 2018’s wildly popular animal print trend. This time around, the motif will draw all eyes to right below the knee with those long tall boots. And for something a little different, try Victoria’s Beckham’s peep-toe variety. Victoria is always a trend-setter. I’m loving the leopard print! Grrr…!

Call It Spring

Strong Platform

Providing extra lift as well as extra support, the retro platform heel was made current with Kate Spade New York. Perfect for those of us who want to look taller but still need to feel that support. Saint Laurent’s extra sleek boot makes a statement with a pointed toe shape and patent leather finish.

Hudson’s Bay

Such a Slouch

Marc Jacobs and Lanvin were extra generous with their boot silhouettes this season, providing tons of room to slouch with every step. Most Vancouverites will need to make space in their closets if they want to get on board with this exaggerated boot shape. This long boot look looks awesome on a tall girl. The shorter slouch boots look great on any size or shape, and take up a lot less room in your closet!

X-Files

Another common theme of much of Fashion Month was criss-cross straps across shoes of all colors, fabrics, and heel heights. Everything from ballet flats, chic two-tone pumps, and 6 inch spikes! Yikes…think Glamazon!

Aldo

Flower Power!!

Floral prints are never missing from the collections, but for next season the motif makes an extra-strong presence. Rochas added subtle buds to its over-the-knee black boots, while Jonathan Cohen went for brighter palettes and more pronounced petals. Shades of the ’60s…so whimsical and feminine…my favorite look! And it adds a nice punch if you are wearing the classic little black dress.

Le Chateau

Heavy-Sole Boots

No laces, no problem. Lug-sole boots were all over the fall collections with sleek, cinched jackets. It’s a suggestion that this trend is a new staple for stylish career women everywhere. It’s a funky cool look that most women can carry out!

SoftMoc

Elegant Slip-Ons

Laceless brogues, pointed slippers, and a classic loafer all offer alternatives for those not keen on wearing heels. While these styles will obviously pair well with trousers — they also create a lovely balance with fall’s pretty, midi hemlines, too. I had some fun buying some loafers in some of my favorite colors. I always get compliments on my purple loafers.

Happy, middle aged mom (60 is the new 40... right?) of 2 wonderful children (and extended family) still seeing life through my rose coloured glasses. And that is a choice that I have made... to always try and see the positive in people and situations... and to "pay it forward" whenever I can. It's brought me the most unexpected moments of joy and happiness in return. And my mantra is "you are only as old as you think!" So, as a result, I'm still enjoying my rock concerts, my hockey games and just keeping busy!
