Living in an area with year-round moderate temperature means sandals can be worn at any time. But for fall, I look for texture and color to dictate the mood and set the right tone for an outfit. Suede, velvet, shearling and animal prints create balance with the weight of sweaters, leather, and tweed.
I recently purchased the Jimmy Choo snakeskin print sandal above (on sale now) and have already given them a few spins. The muted color reads as a neutral and looks good with jeans, leather pants and even patterned dresses. I wore a version of the above outfit last week and loved how they added a pop of interest to an otherwise simple outfit.
