Fall 2011 Fashion Trends: The Rose Blush Shoe

One of the biggest classic tricks a Fashionista has up her sleeves, in order to make her legs appear longer, is to wear high heels that are close in color to her leg. This elongates the leg and makes one appear taller and more fabulous. This fall, there is a move away from skin-tone beige and a move towards the rose or blush colored shoe. This shoe is being shown in classic high heel pump styles as well as extremely trendy cut out styles, open toe booties and ankle straps.

Hot designers such as Prada, Chanel and Christian Louboutin are showing this hue for fall and it is already creating quite a buzz in the form of flying off store shelves! What is intriguing about rose or blush is that the shade easily blends with autumn colors such as brown, burgundy, plum and forest green; all colors that are hot for fall 2011.

In addition to shoes, the rose or blush shade is popping up on handbags and apparel. As the fashion world moves away from candy pink, or Pantone’s “Honeysuckle,” the rose/blush color is taking the place as the ultimate “feminine shade” for fall. With fall’s sophisticated vintage trend and embellishment trends such as lace, rose/blush is the easiest color to pair with the majority of one’s fall 2011 wardrobe.

Rose/blush is also light enough to carry into winter when colors become softer. Another reason to invest in the famed hue? Rose/blush has been spotted on the Berlin spring 2012 runways; signaling to the fashion world that is may be an important shoe color for 2012.
