Gucci Boots

Gotta love Gucci!  Especially the designer’s shoes.  (With the exception of the ones clearly displaying the Gucci logo.  Tacky!)

My fellow sole sisters will appreciate these suede ankle boots (left).

They are so incredibly versatile for the upcoming season.   They’re a classic cut, shape and height, not to mention the color.  The color camel is THE color for fall!

Banana Republic Boot

Chloe Fall 2010 Runway

These are perfect for creating that monochromatic look (pictured left) with a light trouser or skirt.

You can also try mixing up the colors by wearing bold tights with another color skirt.  (But, keep in mind monochromatic makes you look longer).

Here’s a more affordable alternative by Banana Republic (right). They are beige instead of camel so a slight difference in color, but a BIG difference in price at $180 bucks!

Try em’  You’ll love em’!

Besides, your black boots need a break.

A trend you can enlist in this fall is … military!

You can find everything from jackets to skirts to pants to boots with some roots in the armed forces.

Giuseppe Zanotti Camo Pump

Take these camo pumps for example.  Did you ever think we’d see the day?

Here in Texas, no doubt there are a few ladies (and husbands) hailing the camo trend. (Just be careful not to get shot!)

Ralph Lauren Black Label

I love the idea of taking a really feminine piece (dress) and making a little tougher by buying it in army green.  Check out the one I bought on sale by Ralph Lauren Black Label.  One of the first comments I received while wearing it was … “very Cate Blanchett.”  She’s the epitome of edgy elegance and that’s how I would ultimately describe my style.

Other ways to take command of this trend:  cargo pants, army green skirts and/or a utility jacket.

If you wear the pants or skirt, be sure to glam up the look a little with your shoes and accessories.  For example, if you wear a fun, military green cargo pant, roll up the bottom and pair them with a cognac colored pump.  A plain white T or button down is just fine.  Again, make sure you dress it up with a great necklace(s) and/or bracelets.

Try a fun and feminine blouse with your green skirt and definitely mix your utility jacket with something frilly (lace & ruffles).

Now, forward…march, on this trend!
