The menswear-inspired trend is one that never really goes away, as sharp tailoring has always been a classic look, but it is definitely more important this season. And the choices in stylish shoes reflect this renewed interest.
Oxfords, loafers and brogues have received a fabulous new makeover for Fall, and they are much more than a practical option this season. Long gone are the days when you would choose an oxford because they are sensible! Sky high heels, statement platform pumps and even some fabulous new materials mark this trend. This trend is also very versatile, as you can see by the selection below.
Bold colours have become a must-have this season, and Pour La Victoire offers a slick red patent loafer pump that will pop with a crisp white shirt and black trousers. Or you can wear them just as easily with your skinny jeans, white tee and leather jacket. But if you prefer a more delicate look, Casadei has a gorgeous two-tone cutout oxford pump with a stiletto heel that is very pretty and ladylike!
Don't forget about the major designers here - both Lanvin and Nicholas Kirkwood have covered this trend as well, and if I had to choose one shoe that best reflects this new trend, it would have to be Nicholas Kirkwood's midnight blue & silver peep toe loafer pump. I guarantee this shoe will sell out quickly at Nordstrom!
