2011 Fall Trends Day 5- Colored Suede Shoes

If Elvis were around today his blue suede shoes would be right on trend! I'm sure you've noticed the overall theme of color lately. This is translating all the way down to your feet! Suede shoes in a delicious fall palette of deep blues, greens, burgundy and mustard are showing up everywhere in styles from boat shoes to desert boots! This is a great way to throw some pop onto a staple ensemble. Some great jeans and a solid shirt take on a whole new look with a colored shoe. My one tip: Either wear these shoes without socks, or pair them with fun, colorful ones. No boring solid charcoal dress socks here, please!  

I saw this great Mohonk Shoe by PF Flyers at one of my favorite Portland stores, Local 35, but they are also available through their online store, or they have a great store locator on their website. When possible, support your local shops!

These fun mustard slip-ons by Tod's are available at Nordstrom. Although they are more casual in nature, you can see by the purple example above that they can easily be dressed up or down.

Salvatore Ferragamo took this trend up a notch and made a beautiful more formal shoe in this blue version. Talk about class! Now THAT'S how to amp it up at the office!
What color will your feet be rocking this season?
