Hot Shoe Trends Fall 2009: Sequin Shoes
If there’s one thing I learned from season 2 of The Rachel Zoe Project, it’s that sequins are super-hot. Rachel wore sequins several times on the show and says on her website, “virtually every designer sent sequins flying down the runways” for fall. It’s an ideal time for a sequin trend given how perfect they are for holiday party wear, but sequins are no longer relegated to just evening looks. They can add instant glam to just about anything, even simple jeans and a tee. In particular, I like sequins on shoes because it’s a great way to apply the trend without the risk of overdoing it. Plus, when you have shiny, happy feet, the rest of you tends to feel that way too. So, go ahead, add a little sparkle to your life in one of these pretty pairs:
Betsey Johnson Kanata in blue or magenta for $200 with free shipping at Zappos. I so need these in my life. Like immediately. Update: The blue version of the Kanata is now $204 at Zappos, but the magenta pair is now marked down to $160.
The gorgeous Nina Erna pump in burgundy or black for $99.95 at Shoemall. Get 15% off with code 15AMAZON, which makes them $84.96 with free shipping.
Sparkle and save in the Forever 21 Sequin Holiday Pump. It’s just $22.80 and comes in black or gold.
Or, get another low-priced pair in pink, the Wet Seal Sequin Pump for $24.50 at Wet Seal. It also comes in gold or silver.
Go for a gold pair with this Lumiani Jeanna for $105 with free shipping at Zappos.
Lose the heel, not the shine, in the Free People Eclipse Sequin Flat. It comes in blue, pink or black and is on sale for $49.95 (originally $88).
Spend even less on a sequin flat at American Eagle. The AE Sequin Flat in black or silver is $34.50.
Or, get a dolled-up pair of sequin sneakers, like the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sequins shoe for $85 at Converse.com. Spend less with the Gotta Flurt Sparkle Sequin Sneaker for $29.95 at DSW or the high-top Sequin High shoe for $28.99 at LoveMyShoes (coupon S15FALL takes 15% off until 10/23).
