Heavenly Heels for Fall Dresses

heavenly heels for fall

Fall is here, and it is time to break out the cool weather wardrobe. But that doesn’t mean you have to store away all of your cute shoes. Fall dresses can pair wonderfully with some, but probably not all, of the heels you already have in your closet.

Here are some heels you will want to have in your collection this fall.

Short Dress with Leggings or Tights

Tights and leggings are not to be worn as pants, but they sure look great under a short or mid-length dress! This is a great way to transition a favorite summer piece into fall: just add leggings and a sweater or wrap. The variety of colors and patterns available is absolutely astounding, so you’ll be able to match any outfit.

A dress paired with leggings is just as versatile when it comes to shoe choices. Tall boots or short boots, known as “booties,” are the go-to, fashionable look, and there are beautiful high heel options for both styles. If you’re especially daring, try a pair of over-the-knee boots, like this pair by Zigi Soho. Avoid wearing pumps, as they can leave your outfit looking a little unfinished. A boot or heel with an ankle strap anchors the look and helps tights stay put.

Long Sleeve Wrap Dress

Who doesn’t love this classic look, made iconic by Diane Von Furstenberg? The universally flattering style should be a staple in every woman’s closet. Throw it on with your favorite pair of pumps, and you’re out the door. These dresses also look wonderful with a pair of wedges. The casual feel of a wedge can dress down an otherwise formal style, so you have more opportunity to wear your favorite wrap. These wedges by Jessica Simpson would look perfect with a solid color or pattern dress and will be comfortable all day.

You can also dress up the look of a solid color dress by pairing it with a stylish, patterned pump. Find a pattern with your dress color as an accent to add interest, or choose a pattern with brighter, complementary colors to really give your outfit a punch! A higher heel will add more drama, but look for a lower heel style if you plan to be on your feet for any extended length of time.

Sweater Dress

The sweater dress is the coziest way to look completely fashion forward. These dresses come in lots of styles, so there is a look out there for everyone. They are also easy to accessorize with belts, tights, scarves, and jewelry. You can easily change the look and wear it all the time. If you’re stuck in a style rut, there is plenty of inspiration out there to find a fresh new way of wearing the same piece.

Sweater dresses look their best when paired with tall boots or booties. Wearing a pump or wedge can seem incongruous since the dress is a heavier, warmer look. Textured styles pair especially well with sweater dresses. Boots with rouched suede, contrast panels, or a stylish buckle look great on everyone. Styles with stacked heels, such as these by Franco Sarto, are just as comfortable and casual as a wedge.

Start with the Shoe

Have a new pair of shoes and want to show them off? It’s easy to choose the perfect outfit to flaunt your new heels. Here are some examples of fresh styles with the best dresses to pair them:

  • Cowboy-style boot or bootie: This style can be tricky to pull off with a dress. Don’t get paranoid about creating a Western-themed outfit – go with it! Choose a natural waist, knee-length dress with a full skirt and throw a denim jacket over it. With such a strong clothing statement, keep jewelry to a minimum.
  • Tall, stretch calf boot with stiletto heel: This sleek style is perfect for creating a classy-yet-sexy evening outfit. Pair these boots with a sleek, body-con sweater dress for maximum wow factor.
  • Lace-up suede bootie: It’s impossible to pair such a casual style with a dress, right? Of course not! Put on those booties with a casual, belted shirtdress or chunky knit sweater dress for comfort and style.
  • Black leather pump: You can pair nearly any dress with such a classic choice. Wear them with your formal dresses or put them on with a work dress to add a little polish. Try not to wear them with thick tights to avoid uncomfortable sliding and bunching.

Conclusion

Fall may be a cooler season, but there is no reason to stick only to flats with your dresses. Remember your safety, though. You don’t want to put on your heels and get a sprained ankle. If there are slick or icy conditions, it is a good idea to wear a shoe with a little more traction, and then change to your heels once you’re secure inside. Have fun pairing the new season of dresses to the new season of shoes.

 

 

Game Day Looks – Are You Ready for College Football?

Looks for Game Day - Houser Shoes

Bring on the tailgating, junk talking, and touchdown scoring fall football season. You won’t find many people who won’t tune in for a little pigskin action. Whether you are a college student or reliving your old college days, you know how important college football season is.

If you plan to hit up some tailgating, football parties, or game day celebrations, you need to make sure your outfits complement the upbeat atmosphere of the festivities. Every football fan knows that dressing the part is just as important as for whom you are rooting. Make sure everyone knows you are the top football fan by dressing in your school colors. Remember to keep your look classy, and be smart about your footwear.

Tailgates and football games call for casual and versatile ensembles. Comfort is the priority  when deciding what to wear. Your outfit should look put together, but also allow you to participate in a few games of cornhole at the tailgate. Mix your personal style with some school spirit for the perfect college football spectator outfit.    

Incorporate Your School Colors

Show off your killer fashion by dressing the part in school colors. You don’t have to be a fashion expert to realize that wearing your old jersey and sporting your school colors is the ultimate in football fandom. Wear some great athletic shoes like Converses in your school colors, and you will be rocking that college student look.

Layer It On

Many of the season’s games will go into the colder months, which means wearing heavier gear to the games. Fall weather is fickle, and a cold front can move in quickly. If you find yourself needing a cold weather outfit, you can easily accomplish this with multiple layers. Layer an oversized sweater with a long-sleeved tee, and pair them with jeans and great athletic shoes. Accessorize the outfit with an infinity scarf and a knitted beanie in your team colors. This will help keep you warm during all the game day festivities, and the layers can be removed if the temperature rises.

Add a Touch of Class

Multiple layers are only part of what you need to ensure that you stay warm and cozy during football season. For colder days, you can bundle up in your favorite pair of jeans, basic long  sleeve tee, and a nice quilted vest or jacket for that preppy look. To incorporate your school spirit, you can add a knit hat or scarf.

Bring on the Cowgirls

It is not always cold, depending on the time of year and location of the game. As soon as fall semester starts, college football games kick off soon after.

One of the most popular looks for women on game day includes the cutesy, short dress paired with a good looking set of cowboy boots. Pick out your favorite sundress – extra points if the dress is in your school colors – and slip on your boots for the perfect game day look. This is the ideal style for tailgating before the game, rooting for your team, and celebrating your win afterward, all while you remain fashionable in your chic look. 

Football Tailgating

Combine Your Leggings and Heels

If you want a more casual look that remains well put-together, you can always stick to leggings and a tunic or pair leggings with a school jersey. Leggings are the ultimate staple for any college student closet. This outfit works great with a pair of booties and oversized sunglasses to offset the basic look.

Stick to the Flannel

If you plan on being the chef during the tailgate, you don’t want to don your best outfit. Instead, slip on a basic tee with a flannel shirt over it. Throw on your favorite pair of jeans, and you are ready to become a grill master. You can even wear a comedic looking apron to protect your clothing and to add to the spirit of the tailgate. This outfit can be worn with flip flops or sneakers, depending on your preference. When the game is about to start, throw on your sunglasses and a team ball cap to join in the fun.

Final Thoughts

The key to dressing for college football is to show off your school spirit while remaining comfortable. Game festivities can last all day, so wear something appropriate for the weather conditions and that you feel good in while displaying your support for your team. Remember to keep it casual and comfortable.

Wear clothes you can sit in for the duration of the game, wear shoes you can do a lot of walking in, and don’t forget to layer your outfit when the temperature drops.

Mary Jane Is Here to Stay

This classic, patent leather, shoe secured by one or more straps over the instep and fastened with a buckle or button, first appeared in the early 19th century. Appropriate for school, ceremonies, weddings and more, the Mary Jane shoe style is a common favorite of many different cultures. Historical documents do show that this style has been worn by men but for the most part Mary Jane’s, for many people, are a symbol of girlhood.

In the beginning this style shoe was flat with a rounded toe and made of patent leather. As time has passed, Mary Jane’s have evolved into an abundance of different shapes, sizes and colors. The key feature of this shoe that differentiates it from any other type of shoe is the one or more straps across the instep. This shoe has become a timeless classic for children’s fashions.

Classic, stylish yet able to adapt to formal wear, Mary Jane’s have maintained their popularity for decades. Here at Houser Shoes our choices of the Mary Jane style shoe is plentiful.

HEELS! HIGHER HEELS! HIGHEST HEELS!

High heels have always been in women’s closets. Any season, women have loved high heels. Fashionable, quality and more importantly comfort is what we women look for in a heel. The comfort part is the hardest to find at times though. The fashions are changing when it comes to heels. In the last few years it has been about the higher the better, the more abstract of a heel the better, and the platform heel is better, that is all behind us now. In the fashion industry now, anything, as far as the size of the heel is concerned, goes. Whether it is a 2 inch or a 4 inch heel both are considered in style when it comes to fashion.

One thing is true in fashion, a good heel goes a long way. Many think that a heel can be the only shoe a woman should wear, and I admit, I do have more confidence when I am wearing a pair of heels ( of course I am only 5’1 in height). I am the modern woman who has a nice variety of heels and flats in her closet. Heels can be terrible for your feet, but that is why everyone needs a balance of flats and heels. It is also why finding a good quality heel that is comfortable and fashionable. These heels are out there, Houser Shoes has them. Houser Shoes offers great quality and fashion when it comes to finding heels. Houser Shoes offers sole inserts too, so it will be even more comfort on your feet.

Heels, higher heels, and highest heels there is a difference. Some consider a regular pair of heels as pumps. Pumps are heels, not overly high heeled, maybe 1, 2, or 3 inch. Higher heels is more of a balance between height and not to low, think 3 to 4 inch. Sometimes a wedge or chunkier heel style. The highest heels would be the stilettos, the spike, and the overly high platform heels, think of a heel 5 to 8 inches. No matter which you prefer, everyone can choose whatever style they like this season and it will be in fashion. When picking the perfect pair of heels , there is a couple of ways to do so, either way is good. Some will fall in love with a pair of heels, I , myself am guilty of this more than once,  purchase them and then buy an outfit to match them. The second way is to purchase an outfit and then find the perfect heels for the outfit.

Many colors, styles, and fashionable heels can be found this season. It depends on what you want in a heel and choose what fits your personality the best. Brands that offer quality and comfort to look for at Houser Shoes is Chinese Laundry, Pierre Dumas, Bare Traps, Life Stride, and Easy Street.  These brands offer good support and can be a great addition to any closet. Have fun when looking for heels, remember to pick up sole inserts, and let your personality shine with shoes.

BEST SHOES TO ACCENT FALL FOILAGE

By:  Tiffini Taylor

The hottest color of the autumn season is cobalt blue!  Or at least that is according to the fashion magazines, newspapers, fashion runway shows, a couple of designers, and the Internet.

So, what about all the other colors of autumn?  That is what I am here for, I enjoy fall. Fall can be a wonderful time of the year for enjoying the beauty of the outside world. Many different colors and color combinations come from the beauty of nature. Fall is the best time to go and explore all colors, not just the one that the so-called fashion experts say too.  I am not saying that it is wrong to have a most popular color each season, all I am suggesting is not to forget about the other colors.

Let’s begin our journey today with what to wear when going to one of many exciting fall festivals. Ankle boots have come in with a big bang since last season. An assortment of styles and colors are available at Houser Shoes. A lovely pair of suede ankle boots, such as Clark’s of England in women’s desert oak, will sure to please a nice cardigan set with slacks. A lovely afternoon look to walk through an arts and crafts fall festival in. Another great look for a fall festival is a pair of grey jeans , a button up blouse , and the shoe wear should be bold, try French Kiss women’s Tiffany orange, or other color. Change the button up blouse for a sweater and you will be warm all through the winter months too. The ankle boot can carry throughout winter , so you will get plenty of wear out of them.

Cowboy boots are hot, hot,  hot  this fall! Find a Fall barn dance and get your groove on. A jean skirt, a checkered blouse , paired with  colorful cowboy boots will make a great fall party outfit. Houser shoes has brands such as  Laredo, Justin’s, Bare Traps, Ariat, Dan Post, and Old West cowboy boots in basic, classic and colorful styles. Jeans , a white t-shirt and a jacket with fringe , paired with a pair of Old West cowboy boots will make any fall festival outing a fun time. Cowboy boots come in one solid color or get a little funky with a multi-colored pair, which make them an awesome choice for this fall. Another plus for cowboy boots is that they can be carried over into the winter season also.

Fall means the changing of the foliage and so why not take advantage of the colors that nature provides. Fall is the beginning of the big holiday season and ending of summer. Fall is meant to be a changing into one wardrobe season from another wardrobe season, remember that color is important. Color can make your day brighter during a rainfall or cloudy day. Wearing colorful shoes is a way to show your personality and can make your mood better. Go out this fall and have fun!
