Glittering and sparkling shoes for fall 2012

Shoes have become full of sparkle and glitter over the past few years. The trend began when Fashionistas everywhere flocked to Christian Louboutin’s famous glitter pumps. Now, for fall 2012, almost every shoe designer on the planet has a version of the glitter pump and this sparkling shoe is at the top of its’ game.

There once was a time when every fashion-savvy lady owned a pair of basic black pumps, Manolo Blahnik Mary Jane’s and nude high heels. Although a trend, a long-standing one at that, the glitter pump has become a staple in the wardrobe of every Fashionista.

The glitter pump can be found in every high heel style imaginable for the fall 2012 season. Glitter pumps for fall are being spotted in platforms, flat-soled pumps, pointed toe pumps, sandals and more. In addition to glitter, the sparkling shoe trend has extended to embellishments such as crystal and shining fabrics.

While the glitter and sparkling shoe trend is not new, this trend is at the top of the bell curve. Sparkling shoes are being worn for almost every occasion imaginable, almost saturating the street. Shoe mavens are being seen wearing glitter pumps with everything from jeans to cut-offs to a formal gown.

It should be interesting to see if glittering, sparkling shoes remain at the forefront of shoe fashion for much longer. Although, since many women love anything that glitters, and everything that glitters is like gold, this trend may last longer than your average shoe trend. Only time will tell.
