I grew up with a lot of fashion RULES. You know what I mean: “no white pants after Labor Day” “velvet only between Halloween and Valentine’s.”
These days, many fashionistas just ignore such bygone distinctions, whipping out suede in July and chiffon in December. I love a free and creative approach to style so I applaud that, even if I’m too traditional to always join in. Even so, there’s one fashion rule I’ve happily been breaking for years now: open-toe only in Spring in Summer. I gleefully sport peep-toes year round, which gives me an excuse (and motivation) to keep my pedicure maintained.
That’s especially good news for me this year; open-toe platforms and wedges are a big look this Fall. Bonus: they’re a good transition style while you’re waiting for the temps to catch up to your wardrobe. Pair them with slim skirts and pants for the most up-to-date look.
To be totally honest, this isn’t my favorite of the fall shoe trends. I typically graduate to less clunky styles. However, even I could get really into those

What about you? Do you see yourself clearing out a space for a pair of open-toe platforms or wedges?
