Fashion Extra: Go For the Gold
Along with the impending holiday season come fun and fab events that are worthy of a chic statement piece. Shades of gold, silver, rich plum, burgundy and leather tend to take precedent this time of year, and a great shoe is an excellent way to show a little shine this fall. In honor of this weekend’s opening of ‘A Queen Within’ at the World Chess Hall of Fame, we have offer two picks, one for the “spenders” and one for the “savers.”
For the designer maven, cue Diane Von Furstenberg’s leather mesh and metallic ankle strap sandal. The sleek silhouette and pale gold mesh pay homage to fall’s sporty-chic trend, while the metallic look gives this shoe a glam factor. It can be paired with everything from a sleek slip dress to a cropped leather trouser. Shop this style at Saks Fifth Avenue in Plaza Frontenac.
For the saver, the ‘Madame’ sandal by Steve Madden is trendy and eye-catching. The chunky clear heel, slender toe strap and bold ankle buckle take the simple silhouette from plain to “yes, please.” This style, available at Nordstrom, would look edgy paired with a jumpsuit or a sassy shift dress.
