Even though summer isn’t here yet, fall fashions are hitting the stores. If you are shopping for one pair of shoes for fall, consider splurging on a pair of designer platform pumps.
This season, pumps are hot with rich fabrics (suede and velvet), unique patterns (snake patterns and animals prints) and interesting embellishments (from studs to sequins).
Two of our favorite fall shoe trends are tweed and leopard print.
Get into tweed this fall with these Oscar de la Renta pumps. These shoes feature a ladylike tweed fabric with pretty colors and plenty of texture. These shoes have a 5-inch stacked heel and 3/4-inch platform. You can get these pumps in green, navy or red tweed, priced at $745 at Neiman Marcus.
Leopard pumps have been trendy for the last few years, and this fall it’s more of the same. Look for leopard print pumps with mixed textures, like these cap-toe pumps from Jimmy Choo. These shoes feature a ladylike style with leopard print dyed calf hair and a glossy black patent cap-toe detailed with little silver chains. You can get the “Blend” pumps now for $795.
