Your Coffee Break’s Favorite Shoes For This Fall Season!

Fall is about the crisp air and fresh starts including freshening up your shoe closet. There is no better time to add in pointed-toe pumps, metallic detail, smoking slippers, and wedge sneakers, some of this season’s favorite shoe-trends.

The pointed-toe pump is making its comeback this Fall 2012 season. This classic silhouette is perfect to take from your work day style straight into your look for a night out. Every career woman should invest in a classic black pointed-toe pump, it will forever remain a staple in your wardrobe for years to come.

However, if you are up for being bold, pair a colorful pointed-toe stiletto with your favorite LBD instantly adding that “extra something” and perfect detail to your look.

Seen in every style of shoe, from stilettos to loafers to ankle boots, there is no easier way to update your basic shoe than with a metallic detail. If you wish to keep it subtle opt for a metallic toe cap or a metallic colored heel.

The men’s inspired smoking slipper is popping up everywhere this Fall 2012 Season. Style icons Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo have both been spotted out and about sporting this fresh take on the classic ballet flat. Your options for a smoking slipper are endless, from lush materials like suede and velvet to rich colors such as burgundy and deep purple and if you’re feeling daring go for an animal print or stud embellished slipper.

Wedge sneakers, seen on celebrities from Dakota Fanning to Gisele Bundchen, are the perfect hybrid combining both fashion and function! Try pairing them with dark trousers or a billowing skirt to achieve a more polished look.
