Accent your shoe lover’s holiday outfits this season with some of this year’s hottest shoe trends. Whether she’s going for dinner with the in-laws, or an office holiday party, you know the perfect shoes are what make the perfect outfit.  Unfortunately, with below freezing weather, a chic pair of shoes, often compromises warmth, and comfort. However, this year’s trends seem quite promising, so a shoe splurge for the sole queen in your life wouldn’t do much harm. First off, check out Aldo’s Holiday Collection for the casual, and versatile, Friorel ankle bootie. The dazzling shoe can be paired with a laid back sweater and jeans, or a simple envelope clutch, blazer, blouse, and pencil skirt. This look is ideal for a casual every day holiday outfit. Next on the Christmas shoe wish list, is the Vince Camuto low rise “Tarren” suede bootie.  This royal blue statement piece, is designed to make any simple outfit pop. For a more daring piece, head to TopShop and check out the “Sadie” lasercut peep toe heel. This pair is offered in both cobalt blue, and Berry red. For a sexy look, Zara offers the black suede knee high boot, which can be matched with just about any outfit, whether casual, or formal. For a fancy dinner party with the office colleagues, head to Coach and check out the sexy “Hollis” heel.  The shoe design gives a classic, chic look, but the accent of gold, gives the shoe a fun edge. One of my personal favorites is the flirty Michael Kors Yvonne heel. The cage bootie screams fun, and is a definite wardrobe must. Last on this year’s shoe Christmas wish list is the trendy Sam Edelman “Claire” shoe. Perfect for a rocker chic look, the shoe will definitely be the talk of the dinner party.
