Fall 2010 Footwear Trend: Menswear Inspired

I did a post on the loafers trend of Fall 2010 footwear previously, this post is on the the menswear inspired footwear trend in general. From the very much hyped about oxfords and brogues to chelsea boots and loafers, we've got it all.

[Gossip Girl] Pair a girly round bottom dress with nude brogues, a grey blazer and a gentleman's hat, et violà! It's Serena in Paris. Her Paris styles were even more immaculately put together than the usual Serena. 

These may be plain, but they can add a vintage touch to the whole outfit. Loafers or oxfords, wear them with a dress for easy pairing or baggy trousers for a dandy look.

Clockwise from top leftOlivia Morris For Grenson Lace Up from Urban Outfitters UK; Salvatore Ferragamo Oxfords inspired pump, very feminine; Topshop KARL Tassel Loafers, ASOS WHITE WISE Leather Penny Loafers, with an extra bit of height; Steve Madden Malenee in Cognac and Bone (I loved this bone coloured oxfords but it wasn't available in any of the stores in Hong Kong, so i settled for the white ones). 

For a modern vibe like Olivia Palermo's outfit, try shiny shiny materials like metallic and patent, add an extra oomph of colour too.

Clockwise from top left, Marc by Marc Jacobs Pinked & Perforated Patent Oxfords in gold and charcoal from Shopbop; Olivia Morris for Grenson lace up from Urban Outfitters UK, this fuchsia and gold colour combination is a definite head turner; Ballerina meets Loafers: Repetto Michael Patent Slip On Flat Shoes from ASOS; Topshop KAMILLE Soft Leather Brogues; Salvatore Ferragamo 'My Bright' Patent Leather Loafer in red from Nordstrom and Salvatore Ferragamo Fly Drivers in bronze from Saks.

How can it be a fall winter post without boots? When looking for boots this Fall, keep these mannish boots in mind, an alternative from the myriad of military styles.

 Clockwise from top left, Jeffrey Campbell Two-Tone Roper Boot; Gorgeous juxtapose of leather: Jeffrey Campbell Thread Platform; Jeffrey Campbell Areas Chelsea Boot (all three from Nasty Gal); See By Chloe Wedge Buckle Lace Up Boot; Suede Chelsea Wedge (both from Urban Outfitters UK). I have been looking for the perfect pair of Chelsea boots, and I've found it!
