I feel like I’ve talked about the White Booties trend until I’m blue in the face and as much as I am currently loving this trend … I’m ready for some new trends! At the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale I talked a little bit about Fall Clothing Trends but today I’m starting the conversation for Fall Footwear Trends. Yes, I’m aware that it is August. Yes, I’m aware that Fall is more than a month away. Just because it isn’t here doesn’t mean we can’t prepare ourselves for its arrival. And dream about cooler days and boots and sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes. Okay, I’ll stop. Let’s talk Fall Color Trends now and look for a post next #Shoesday on Fall Silhouette Trends and then another one later on Fall Boot Trends.
Fall Footwear Color Trends
Bright red is still going strong so if you picked up a pair last year please continue to wear it! Often!! I love my red booties (which I snagged at Zara but these are VERY similar) but so many good options. It doesn’t have to be booties any red silhouette will check this box!!
Brown is the New Black
Apparently orange is no longer the new black at least when it comes to footwear … brown is the new black. I’m dipping my toe in slowly with this one with a pair of Cognac Mary Jane shoes trimmed in black. I’ve always the love the black and cognac combination. This year you can go an even deeper shade to true brown! Men have long since had an advantage when it comes to the selection of brown shoes and I’m happy to know that we may finally catch up!! #NowThatsEquality
Blue Suede Shoes Anyone?
Pantone names the color Nebulas Blue, Vogue coined it Cerulean during NY Fashion Week. SJP (technically Carrie) made the Manolo Blahnik version infamous. Whatever your name or hue of blue …. blues shoes are big for Fall. This is one trend I haven’t bought into yet. Not figuratively but literally. I love the idea, I just haven’t found my pair to purchase yet!! #ItWillHappen
Lastly, in keeping in line with the 80’s come back … bright pink is a color you are going to be seeing more of … especially on feet. I’m always a fan of the pop of color so this is one trend I can get on board with!! (And I already own a few pink shoes like the Lewit ones above). Neon Pink, Hot Pink, Pony Pink … they all work. Sandal, Flat, Pump … yes, yes and yes!! Consider this a neutral and rock it with anything!! #Perfect
Mad for Plaid
Is plaid a color? Well it is today. The other big trend making appearances for Fall is mad for plaid. I recently purchased these Jeffrey Campbell booties but I’m starting to see so many more options in all sorts of silhouettes. And I’m really loving these Jeffrey Campbell red and plaid oxfords.
White Booties One More Time
We have talked white ad nausea but if you don’t have yourself a pair yet, they really are fun and they make the outfit!!
Those are the colors that are trending for fall. Come back next #Shoesday and I will talk about the trending silhouettes (think unique heels, square toes and other fun adornments). Until then Happy Shoesday!!
