Fashion Forward: Boots
It's no secret many women can't live without shoe shopping. But this season, if there's one item you're going to buy, it's got to be a big ole pair of boots. In tonight's Fashion Forward, Shireen Sandoval shows us some of the hottest styles for fall.
WSVN--Jessica Simpson looks sexy in her cowboy boots. Ciara wore a metallic pair to the MTV Video Music Awards. From music videos to the streets of South Florida...Boots are made for walking and wearing this season.
"Boots this season are fashion forward and a must have."
Get ready to kick up your heels, at Sergio Rossi at the Shops of Bal Harbour. The shoe store has a new designer at the helm and more than two dozen different styles of boots to choose from.
Francisco Molina from Sergio Rossi: "Definitely this fall every woman should have a boot and we highly recommend a square toe wedge which is very versatile."
And when it comes to color, don't just stick to black or brown. Here, you'll find boots in every color... Including the designer's signature bold giraffe print.
Francisco Molina: "They're always very chic and they pretty much go with everything and you can encorporate that in their existing wardrobe, which is great."
It's all about boots for South Florida resident and shoe designer Donald Pliner. At his Village of Merrick Park store in Coral Gables, they've got a boot for just about everyone...Including his prized pooch, baby doll.
Shoe Designer Donald Pliner: "Years ago the word boot meant okay cold weather snow. Today boot is a fashion, you wear it with a tight jean, you wear it with a skirt, you wear it in the summer months."
Donald says color and fabrics are key. Check out this newspaper print cowboy boot or this suede pair with pretty hardware. But don't be a plain jane...Look for boots with lots of embroidery and detail...Which you can take you from day to night.
Donald Pliner: "Jean to tuxedo dressing. There, is no, there is no hour or minute of the day which you really can't wear it."
Hey fellas - don't feel left out. Donald has a line of boots for you too.
