If you’re ready for fall temps, we’ll tempt you with fall shoes, too. Some of the season’s most stylish shoes can easily be worn with a sundress now and a sweater dress later.
Jill Hathaway, owner of J.Hathaway Shoe Boutique, says some of the latest heels are so ornate and colorful that they need to be worn with a simple palette.
“The colors of summer are back for fall but in different tones and patterns,” Hathaway says. “Pumpkin, teal, hunter green and mustard are big.”
Brocade, houndstooth, leopard, colorblock and Aztec-inspired prints are also hitting the scene. Hathaway is seeing booties come back again but with new patterns and edgier designs, along with flats resembling driver moccasins and wedge heels.
