The Wrap Around: Strappy Shoes For Fall

18th Sep 2013 / By Nina Lenders

With the official start of fall just days away, it’s time to start taking a serious look at some of our favorite fall shoe shapes. Of course, we will see plenty of boots and booties, and this season there has even been a huge influx of brogues and loafers. But with all of these heavier styles making such an impact this season, I am pleased to see such a wide variety of more feminine strappy styles. From ankle straps to T straps and even strappy boots, there are enough styles this season to keep you busily shopping for quite a while.

Strappy shoes give us the ability to add a little sexiness and pizzazz to an otherwise more basic style. Take your classic pointy toe pump for example. Adding a simple ankle strap can transform this shape from your basic court shoe to something a bit more elegant. I also love what an ankle strap can do to a chunkier platform wedge…adding a delicate strap can take your chunkier style and give it a more feminine feeling while also providing a bit of stability (something I  know we could all use when wearing a platform anything)!

Strappy Heels

Now, as lovely as an ankle strap can be, it’s also important to make sure the strap hits your leg at a flattering spot. Certain straps, especially those of the thicker variety, can chop off your leg and make your legs feel shorter and wider. Make sure your shoe’s straps hit you at the best place possible, and if not, try wearing these styles with pants instead of dresses and skirts.

Ankle Strap Pumps

Of course, ankle straps aren’t the only straps we saw on the fall runways. With so many retro looks being shown at fashion week, it isn’t surprising that we saw a lot of T-straps making a splash. We also saw loads of strappy booties…from patterns at Rebecca Minkoff to buckles and studs at  Saint Laurent, the strappy trend is definitely here to stay.

Whatever your strappy fantasy, I’m sure this season’s selection will fulfill it!
