Editor’s note: The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe, stylist, fashion designer, and creator of The Zoe Report. This week Rachel suggests Fall footwear . . . you ready for this?
Marching forward into Fall, there are countless types of shoes I envision on my feet . . . where to begin? It is a no brainer that boots are center stage this season so naturally, I have my eye on countless styles. First up are over-the-knee boots — OTK for short — as they are more coveted than ever before and come in many gorgeous variations for you to lust over . . . heeled, flat, suede, leather . . . DIE for all of them. If you have yet to delve into this trend, now is the time!
Other standout members of the boot family are riding boots and, of course, booties. Aim for ankle-height interpretations with lace-up detailing, a wedge structure and sturdy heel, and you will flawlessly finish any look.
In general, I have noticed many Spring/Summer shoe trends carry right on into Fall/Winter — meaning clogs and chunky wedges are still a go! — along with new cold-weather appropriate characteristics: love faux fur and shearling. Keep all of this in mind as you shoe shop and take further inspiration from the group you see here — carefully selected by moi. Lastly, please don't be afraid to wear your open-toe heels throughout the season . . . just throw on some tights or socks to stay cozy and strut your stuff. xoRZ
