Fall 2008 shoe trends

Trends for shoes this fall are bold, sparkling and sometimes a little wild as animal prints, primary colors and crystals were favorites among designers for the season. Here are some of the hottest looks in footwear to get your fall fashion in full force.

Wild wedges
As usual, snake skin seems to be the biggest animal print this year. It was seen slithering down the runways in the form of a wedge (below) at Gucci Fall/Winter 2008/2009 women's collection - along with matching bags. Giraffe and leopard are great on pumps, stilettos and wedges as well, but as always, everything in moderation. Just a tiny patch of print goes a very long way and is best worn on one article of clothing at a time.

Tall cuffed boots
Whether you like them flat or with heels these boots look great over tights of a similar tone or skinny jeans. Suede versions in grey and purple are big this fall and Chinese Laundry has a great pair (below) called ‘Tahoe’ for $99. Those also come in black and a deep brown. This may sound VERY 1980s, but I have a currently looking for stirrup jeans to wear under my cuffed boots so my jeans don’t get all bunched. Any suggestions?

Silky satin
Forget the dyables you have worn as a bridesmaid in every wedding since 1990 … satin shoes no longer have to match your dress. For a look that really pops, pair in a bold color of satin heels (such as red, yellow or blue) with a simple dress or jeans.

Bohemian biker
You don’t have to ride a Harley to get some edge into your wardrobe. These motorcycle boots from Gucci Fall/Winter 2008/2009 women's collection had minimal metal, clean lines and fringe that gave it a hint of hippie. They were paired with tights, flowing tops and colorful scarves which gave them a softer look.

Bright and bold
Colors are big this fall and can come in many shapes and sizes. Jewel tones along with many primary colors will be seen in solids, not patterns, on shoes. Sky blue apparently means the sky is the limit on what you wear them with if you are as brave as Katie Holmes

    K. Holmes' outfit is a serious eye sore. Like the cuffed boots though. Good article.
