Fall 2012 shoe guide: flats and pumps

Today I’m running through the best fall 2012 trends for flats and pumps, along with a few of my favorite pairs for each trend. Let the shopping begin!

Loafer pumps
Sexy yet smart, these say “sexy boss lady”–and they’re comfy enough to wear to the office without your feet going on strike.

Brogues
Whether flat or heeled, this menswear-inspired shoe is the perfect companion to fall skirts and cuffed skinny pants alike.

Embellished flats
Glitter, studs, jewels–what isn’t appearing on fall 2012’s party-worthy, yet totally comfortable flat shoes?


Metal accents
On tips and toes alike, this trend adds edge to any pair of flats or heels.

Fall 2012 shoe guide: boots, boots, and more boots

If there’s one shoe that says “autumn” to me, it’s a pair of boots. It’s fitting, then, that there are so many great styles of boots surfacing on the fall fashion scene this year. From low to high and flat to heeled, here are the best fall 2012 boot trends to add to your closet.

Low ankle boots
Proof that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style–or vice versa–these boots are a versatile and trendy pick that won’t leave you hobbling at the end of a long day at a music festival.

Riding boots
This equestrian-inspired style goes with skirts and pants alike and keeps your feet warm and dry through the winter months.

Knee-high heeled boots
The seventies staple is back in a big way after a long year of ankle booties. (Don’t worry, those haven’t gone away either!)

Buckle boots
Low, high, heeled, flat–all styles are sporting serious buckles this year, which lend major edge to even the flounciest frock.

High-heeled boots
Yes, they’re wildly impractical. But they’re also wildly fun. Wear them with colored or sweater-knit tights for maximum trendiness.
