Early Fall Shoe Trends: Ornaments, ruffles, and sequins, oh my!

Glitzy sandals: Vyper by Report

Welcome to the second installment of Shoeflyer’s exploration of fall shoe trends.  Yesterday, we welcomed back booties. Today, we’re glitzin’ it up with ornaments.  I, for one, couldn’t be happier that glam rock seems to have invaded the shoe world.  This is another trend that will stretch past this summer.  Sequins, feathers, bows, and ruffles are here to stay, at least for one more season.  To get in on the glam, look for luxurious, Moulin Rouge-esque materials and eye-popping heels.

Chanel may have debuted the eye-poppingest heels yet.  As Sharon Clott recently wrote for New York Magazine’s Pre-Fall Shoe feature, “From heels that look like Russian palaces (upside down) to furry white boots to rhinestone-encrusted pumps, Chanel’s shoes were all over the place. And we want more.” Gothic lines combined with velour, rhinestones, and platform toes?  Yes, please.

I mean, as long as I can actually walk in them. And they will go with the rest of my wardrobe. And I can afford them. Hmmm.  As is often the case, I find that I probably wouldn’t actually wear most of these catwalk-featured shoes in “real life.”  Still, I will use them for inspiration as I shop.  To translate the glam shoe trend to the street, look for shoes with one special feature, like rhinestones.  Try to include too many glitzy pieces in one outfit, and you’ll end up looking like a Las Vegas showgirl.  And that won’t do at the office, now will it?
