Nine West Hot 9 Picks
1. Papoose Heel ($89)
Call on your kindergarten loop-swoop-and-pull skills for these bow-tied suede mary janes. The Papoose Heels combine a youthful design with grown-up elements like a hidden platform and sexy peep-toe. Featured here in red, they also come in black suede as well as black, green, and red synthetic snakeskin.
2. Dakota Large Tote ($150)
Fringe is everywhere these days┬--from Mischa Barton┬'s booted feet to the high-fashion runways. Figuring out how to incorporate it in your wardrobe without looking costumey can be quite the daunting task. Enter the Dakota Tote in all of its tiered-suede glory. The solution to your fringe fears, this smart tote has a sleek shape that masks a roomy interior and it comes in a striking blue color as well as brown suede.
3. Lahdidah Bootie ($99)
Dark, gothic themes reigned supreme on the runways this season. The Lahdidah Booties tap into the trend and have a sinister vibe. We think they┬'d look hot worn with cropped pants, a sharp blazer, and lots of chain necklaces.
4. Gidsa Pump ($89)
The Gidsa Pump brings the search for a perfect gray shoe to a screeching halt. These heels have a delicious suede finish and look like the love-child of a pump and ankle-bootie. The elastic strap ensures absolute comfort while bringing an interesting element to the shoe┬'s design. Sure to go with everything, it┬'s at the top of our must-haves list.
5. Jade Heel ($89)
These buckled heels are the perfect hybrid of sweet and classic tastes. The teal suede gives off a vibrant pop of color that effortlessly steals the limelight (er, shall we say the teal-light?). We┬'d wear them with neutral basics, like a grey cashmere sweater dress or a body-conscious black skirt.
6. Goto Sandal ($79)
The Goto Sandals just might become your go-to pair of statement-making shoes this season. To keep them fall-friendly we┬'d wear them with a pair of black microfiber socks that hit a couple inches above the ankle and a leg-baring sweater dress. Shown above in one of this season┬'s most popular hues (purple), the sandals also come in black and red suede, as well as black leather.
7. Yeager Boot ($169)
In the quest for perfect fall boots, it┬'s easy to get lost in a myriad of look-alike options. The Yeager Boot stands out amongst its peers thanks to a stacked wedge heel and suede-tie fastening. Unlike other boots out there, the fringe itself is kept to a minimum, so you┬'ll get a hint of bohemian style without feeling too much like a pseudo Pocahontas.
8. Keno Pump ($89)
Gradient colors had a strong presence this spring and the trend will continue to live on through the fall. Instead of the previously seen brights and pastels, this season the focus is on dark, rich color schemes like the deep wine and blood red blend of the Keno Pump. The subtly stacked heel and tantalizing skinny double straps have a certain bad-girl vibe we find appealing.
9. Upscale Snake Bracelet ($50)
It┬'s all about chain details this fall and this snake bracelet is a unique take on the trend. Tough-looking bits of chain hold together the square snakeskin panels for a look that is both interesting and bold. We could see Gwyneth Paltrow or Rihanna wearing it with something fierce like a leather dress, though it would also add some extra sass to a simple jeans-and-t-shirt ensemble.
10. Too Hot To Cross Top Zip Clutch ($49)
The perfect clutch for a night out on the town comes in the form of this two-tone snakeskin clutch. The sultry bordeaux-and-red color combo will look fantastic paired with your favorite LBD, while the versatile style (the strap is detachable) ensures that you┬'ll carry it often.
