With global marketplaces, early delivery dates and warm temps that extend far past Labor Day, sandals are becoming just as much a part of fall’s retail offerings as they are spring’s. This season’s crop tends toward thin straps and stiletto heels, but even the barest of styles can offer plenty of embellishment. Giuseppe Zanotti loved crystals, which added a rich effect to its cobalt-colored T-strap silhouette — don’t you dare step on these blue suede shoes. Casadei’s sleek, nude-hued version was barely there, but still had lots to offer with its multicolor fur straps and a blush ribbon adorning the ankle.
Check out our other call-outs among the season’s best trends, from footwear — tall boots, chunky-heeled shoes, mary janes, men’s-inspired shoes and low-heeled boots — to accessories — top-handle bags, small shoulder bags, clutches, evening bags and mini-bags— to jewelry such as necklaces and earrings.
