Sole Survivor: Vixen’s Fall/Winter 2012 Footwear Guide


When it comes to footwear, this season is all about “survivor of the chicest”–sole survivors. It’s all about style, versatility and comfort. Your wardrobe requires S&M (stand and model), classic and practical footwear.

The obvious color palettes to stick to this season are brown hues, dark blues, dark greens, metallic, reds (preferably the latest ox blood color trend), grays and of course, black. Let’s not forget animal print. After all, a Vixen can never go wrong in leopard print when she’s on the prowl.

As for style, get creative with quilted, tweed, patent leather, velvet and suede textures. For a dose of pizzazz try embellishments such as tassels and spikes. The options are endless.

As a firm believer in shoes are a girl’s best friend, we’ve curated an extensive list of footwear consisting of platforms, boots, loafers and more to get your Fall and Winter wardrobe started on the right foot. Whether you prefer to aim for height in a fierce pair of Christian Louboutins or stay grounded in a chic pair of Charlotte Olympia loafers, we have you covered from designs that are perfect for the office to transitional looks that work wonders on date nights with your significant other.
