As summer draws to a close, Valley fashionistas are already clamoring for fall’s newest styles. The 2010 season welcomes a warm palette of rich colors, luxe fabrics and tailored pieces that are both functional and fabulous for autumn’s breezy days and chilly nights.
There is nothing worse than cold feet, so to keep your toes toasty this season there are two fall staples that are a must for every closet. Returning yet again as one of the hottest styles for cold weather is the over-the-knee boot. À la Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” OTK boots are the perfect ingredient to spice up an outfit. With a variety of fabrics, price points and heel choices, any shopper is guaranteed to find their perfect pair. Another trend for the more daring fashion followers is menswear shoes. Styles like the oxford can be seen everywhere from the streets of Paris to the boulevards of Hollywood and provide wearers with both comfort and fashion. Pair this bold shoe with tights and a feminine dress for the perfect blend of edgy and soft. Bonus: No pedicure necessary. (SEE BY CHLOE Over-the-Knee Wrap Boots, $795. www.neimanmarcus.com)
