Malone Souliers Daisy boot | 4″ / 100mm heel | available at Net-A-Porter, MyTheresa, Matches, Shopbop, Bergdorf Goodman, Moda Operandi and Farfetch.

This season Malone Souliers gives us a classic chic western look with these amazing Daisy booties. The vibe these boots give is a combination of a cowboy meets Moulin Rouge. The Daisy boot is a Western style heel with an added whimsical twist, covered in lustrous velvet with pull tabs trimmed in soft leather. The sharp stiletto 100mm heel and sleek pointed toe are a perfect finishing touch.

We are loving that velvet is the look of Fall heels this year. These Charlotte Olympia platform Fabulous sandals are covered in pink velvet with a sky-high 145mm heel. They also feature a contrasting gold-tone ankle strap with a side buckle fastening, plus crossover straps to the front with a decorative triple bow. We would pair these chic sandals with our favorite silk crepe de chine dress or for a more haute look, some skinny jeans and stretch-knit tank.

Marni Magenta Velvet Loafer Spring 2018

Marni velvet loafer | 4″ / 95mm heel | available in magenta at Net-A-Porter and in royal blue at Marni & Bloomingdales.

According to Francesco Risso, inspiration for the Spring 18 collection came from “two English gardens as seen by Tim Burton . . . with candies”. We can imagine how playing into this fantasy creates such wild, artsy and fun designs we continue to see each season. These loafer pumps are made from scrumptiously soft velvet in a rich magenta or royal blue hue. They give retro vibes with their block 95mm heel and square toe. We would stick with pieces from Marni to pair these heels with. Our favorites: pleated skirt, wide-leg trousers & printed midi dress.

We’re currently receiving some form of disciplinary action. It involves complete submission to a squad of ready-for-fashion-battle shoes –and you’ll be answering the call of duty soon too, once you get your eyes on them. Together, let’s salute the Gianvito Rossi Fall/Winter 2016 collection –our new shoe heroes.

Rossi’s latest line of footwear is an homage to French and British military uniforms (along with its signature Italian craftsmanship, of course). Adorned with rich hues and regal embellishments, ankle boots and sandals are strikingly commanding –but with a feminine flair that screams elegance –perfect for the lady bosses and the style savants who are ready to conquer the world this fall.

August regal velvet ankle-cuff sandal; available at Barneys and Neiman Marcus.

The collection is sharp and striking –reminiscent of the richly decorated uniforms of the Navy. The Augusta is a velvet gem. Blue, gold and garnet embroideries decorate the sexy stiletto sandal, while the midnight blue Miral bootie brims with fit-for-royalty details such as shiny gold buttons and satin red piping.

The sensual shape of the slip-on loafer might just make you give your classic black pumps a long break. The Moret features a high vamp d’Orsay with naked sides, and a thin 105 mm stiletto heel. Your new power shoe, perhaps?

The Vendome Bootie boasts of a cage design that captures the frogging detail of military jackets. It consists of embroidered loops of black suede with gold stitching, creating a fierce yet ultra-feminine finish.

Mink and lamb shearlings also add a fun and flirty touch to the collection. The Moritz is an eye-popping emerald suede bootie with a fur-covered front and a lace-up detail to the ankle –a gorgeous accent no doubt, to an LBD or a white tee and jeans combo.
