T-Strap shoes for fall 2012

There are many shoe trends for fall 2012, but the most demure shoe trend for the cool weather season happens to be the t-strap. T-Straps for the fall 2012 season are anything but conservative. Shoe designers have delved into their avant-garde imaginations and created twists on traditional t-straps as well as designs which are anything but understated.

The t-strap shoe for fall offers embellishments, rocker-chic studs, girly crystals, color blocking, metallic trim and more. Plain and solid colored t-strap shoes need not apply for the fall season; their place is in storage.

T-Strap shoes are the focal point of an ensemble for the fall 2012 season and should be paired with neutral or solid colored outfits. The idea this season is not to have the t-strap compete with garments or other accessories; rather, t-strap shoes are statement making pieces in and of themselves. This is fabulous news for shoe lovers who love to assemble their wardrobe around a shoe purchase 

T-Straps for fall 2012 are also being shown in new ways. Instead of a classic strip of fabric going down the top of the foot, many designers have opted for curvy shapes, geometric pieces and twisted double straps in order to create the modern t-strap. These are not t-strap shoes which would pass a uniform check. The t-strap shoes we are seeing for fall are fun, light-hearted and pieces of art.

We found a few stand-out, statement making t-strap shoes for fall and assembled them together into the Polyvore set. Happy shopping and stay fabulous
