Paris Shoes and Bags: The ABCs of the Fall/Winter Season

The Word on Shoes and Bags

The best Paris shoes and bags will reinvent your look for the season. From the baroque to the classical, the world of shoes and bags this year is defined by deep colors and luxurious surfaces, from platforms to pumps with decorated heels or open toes. Fall usually promises a selection of boots in a range from the horsey to the street rocker and something between. There is something for everyone: high heels, platforms, flats, boots, wedges, pumps, sandals and equestrienne riding boots or ultimate ballet flats. Just be sure to watch the proportions of the boots, and make sure they are working with your overall look. The leg was the focus of all the fall collections, so be sure to add the right hose, black matte, patterned fishnets, nude hose or colors to accent your shoes. The new black sheer footless hose is going to be the sexy add-on to this fall’s leg looks. Rain or shine, your shoes this season are the defining moment that takes your basics to the next level. Indulging in one or two trends will update your look and help you clean out the closet for this year. Take a look at these designers and remember that everyone will be inspired by them, so you’ll see something you like that matches your budget at every level.

Black Patent Leather for Spring

We remember when patent leather was reserved for spring and summer, from dressing up for Easter in classic mary janes to graduating to strapless pumps as we navigated our way through high school (making sure the heel heights did not have us towering over our dates, of course!).

Now patent leather can be worn any season. Still, we’re feeling nostalgic, and patent is so fresh for spring!
