When looking for new season accessories, it’s crucial to think both about visual interest and versatility. Looking for the on trend style of the moment can be a great way to step into the spotlight momentarily, however without a careful approach you might find yourself unable to sport the look in the new season without looking dated. Fortunately, we can always look towards the Carolina Herrera label for gorgeous modern designs that stay within the general perspectives of the new season but also have plenty of classy elements to be useful for more than a few short months.

This was true for the fall 2012 handbags and it certainly extends to shoes. The shoes are divided between attention grabbing with fun colorful punches and versatility oriented which can definitely become investment pieces and at the same time being incredibly functional. Though no one can deny the figure flattering benefits that killer high heels provide, the label shows that we don’t necessarily have to go to extremes to get those benefits. You can impress through color and contrast much more effectively than with height.

A lot of the designs presented seem to support the idea that color blocking is still a trend with an impressive power even in a season when things tend to go towards the more versatile side. With functional items which are by no means ignored, the label aims to bring as much color as possible into our life even though we might feel tempted to keep dark color palettes in the center of attention. Metallic accents along with other on trend style elements such as lacy shoes or luxurious exotic skin texture shoes are also featured as viable alternatives for glaming up your looks.

Lace up shoes, peep toe boots, vibrant pointy toe pumps, on trend ballet flats or sassy sandals with all sorts of contrasts can be your best style weapons this season if you resonate with the style perspective endorsed by the brand and you’re on the lookout for new ways to spice up your outfits and still have an elegant and modern allure without forgoing trendy vibes altogether. Once again, the label has proven a trusted source of fabulousness.
