The first thing I notice on a man are his shoes. I don’t necessarily expect them to be wearing the trendiest or most expensive pair of shoes BUT I do turn my nose up at the condition they are in and sometimes even the style. Get a little guidance on men’s shoes from Debenhams. Check it out below.

Love the gold accent on the sexy high heeled booties.  Pair with everything from maxi skirts, leggings tights and jeans this will be your go to pair all the way through winter!

High Heeled Booties – $80

There’s nothing like a pair of worn in boots to give your outfit a laid back effortless feel and can be worn all year round.  LOVE these distressed western studded booties that can be worn to help transition your summer shorts and dresses by simply adding some tights and a sweater.

Western Ankle Boots – $58

These gray lace up booties are adorable and will go with all of your fall outfits.  Give it a go with some colored skinny jeans and a blazer for a fun and polished look.

I’m loving the color green for fall and these boots are perfect!  They have the classic riding boots look with a fringe back detail that gives it a boho touch.

The 5 Most Stylish Booties Under $100

If there’s one shoe trend that I’m happy stuck around it’s the booties (click here to see some celeb outfit inspiration)!  Now I love the way they look with just abut anything BUT there’s an effortless feel when they’re worn with shorts and dresses.  The key to booties with shorts and dresses is not to put too much thought into them.  Keep them unfussy with flowy dresses, rolled up skinny jeans or with your favorite shorts.   My favorites are the lighter colored tan pairs that help elongate the legs and give a boho-ish vibe; while the black booties give outfits some edge. There’s a ton of different options out there from fringed, studded, zippered and even buckled, but it’s the slip on ones that are the easiest  to wear with everything giving you more mileage (and we all know that boots get better with every wear).  Check out some of my favorite pairs under $100 and what to wear them with.

Sam Edelman’s Louie Bootie – $90 at Shopbop.com These are the ideal bootie!  They will go with just about anything in your closet the dusty color is  perfect.

Tildon Flawless Booties – $49.96 at Nordstrom.com Add some edge to your outfits with these cap toe booties.  Pair with skinny jeans, denim shorts or a little black dress.

Vivienne Ankle Bootie – $79.95 at Solesociety.com  A basic black ankle bootie to wear all year round.

Rustic Brown Booties – $89.99 at Modcloth  The buckles are take what take these booties to another level.  I like these the most for dresses it’ll give them  a laid back boho feel.

Jessica Simpson Octave Bootie – $89.95 at Amazon.com  A lot like the Sam Edelman bootie but with fringe – love it!

Fall Shoe Trends

Are you already thinking ahead to the fall? Do you agonize over what you will wear and if your shoe choices will size up to the style watchers? If you want to be ahead of the trends in shoe styles for the fall season, then get to work now. The new style trends are out, and there is something for everyone. Start saving and shopping now. You can store your trendy, new shoes in your closet until the weather starts to change and the leaves begin to fall. You’ll be glad you did. Here is how to get your feet in this fall’s trendiest women’s shoes:

Pilgrim Shoes

Who knew the Pilgrims and their style would make a comeback? They are this fall. Designers like Marc Jacobs are pairing the traditional loafer-like shoe into an updated Pilgrim shoe with a chunky heel, a dazzling medallion on the toe, and bright colors such as plum. Pair a funky Pilgrim shoe with jeans, pants, dresses, skirts — they will fit just about every clothing ensemble you have in your closet!

Manolo Tweed Pumps
Tweed is back in a big way this season. But it’s more funky and colorful than you might expect to find tweed. This is not the tweed of your grandfather’s church coat. Expect to see Manolo tweed pumps with bright ribbons of purple, orange, pink, and black. Pair these tweed pumps with jeans, suits, dresses, and any other outfit that combines a solid color. The tweed pumps add a design flair and interest to an outfit of two main solid colors.

Strappy Gold Heels

Got somewhere fancy to go? Strap on a pair of shiny gold heels this fall. In fact, strappy gold heels are so versatile that you can wear them with a dress for an elegant dinner or you can pair them with a skinny jeans and a sweater. Look for strappy gold heels that offer a little interest, such as featuring tiny buckles around the ankles. You’ll get lots of compliments as you take this strappy, sexy shoe from night into the day!

Ankle-Strap Platforms

These shoes might take a little practice walking in, but they are surely a show-stopper. Grab a pair of these chunky yet sexy high-heeled shoes in a solid color or an animal print. These shoes are another versatile pair that can carry you from day into night. During the day, wear them with skinny jeans. At night, pair them with a sexy, short dress.

Why spend your hard-earned cash on full price shoes? You can get designer, fall women’s shoes for a reduced price if you are a smart shopper. Start a season ahead and look for designer shoes that are on sale. Marc Jacobs, Guess, Nine West, Michael Kors, Bandolino, and BCBG have their latest fall shoes out on the marketplace now, but they will go on sale. The best part about shopping for fall shoes while it is still hot outside is that you have time to buy. You can bookmark your favorite fall shoes and then keep checking their prices online until they go on sale. With a little patience and a little research, you will be able to score a collection of fall shoes that top the trends lists!
