Shoe Are You?

The following are a few thoughts from LA Based shoe expert and celebrity shoe columnist for The Hollywood Reporter, Meghan Cleary.


Fall is finally in full swing.  From what we have seen so far, what are celebrities' footwear saying about Fall footwear trends? 

BACK IN BLACK
From Gwen Stefani to Victoria Beckham to Nicky + Paris Hilton, black is back. Stilettos, ankle booties, multi-strap hybrid stiletto booties, you name it, basic black is stronger than ever. 

Tip: Look for classic silhouettes you can wear year in and year out and splurge on a well-made classic black pump.

TECHNICOLOR
On the other end of the spectrum, we are seeing every color of the rainbow represented in footwear.  From bright cobalt blues to strong reds, yellows to fuchsia, it's a rainbow world of shoes for celebs like Jessica Chastain and Tina Fey.

Tip: Pair with opaque colored tights for a truly standout look.

MIRROR, MIRROR
Every category of metallic from iridescent to crackled leather, metallic mirror to sparkly beading and details for celebs like Julianne Hough and Elizabeth Bank .

Tip: Try shoe clips to add a bit of metallic to your shoe wardrobe without having to invest in a new pair.
