Gearing up for Fall

It’s August already, which means we’re in the dog days of summer and it can be hard to beat the heat. It’s when most people take off on a summer vacation, which would explain traffic easing up a bit, but it also means the city streets become a ghost town. It’s also a little bittersweet since it’s the last stretch of summer, before school begins again, normal schedules resume and before the chill comes back into the air. But here at Söfft, we’re already one step ahead of the game. While everyone else is enjoying the remainder of these summer days, we’re bypassing August in favor of daydreaming about fall (I think the frigid air conditioning really helps). Fall fashion is my favorite – I love the heavier textures, the darker colors and all the layering. I feel the same way about breaking out the knee-high boots that a lot of people feel about putting on flip flops for the first time in warmer weather. Last week, we launched our Fall 2009 Collection, and now I’ve got some fresh ideas for how to wear our hottest shoes. This season, we’ll take a look at how a shoe can carry you through your week, from the office to a night out to more casual looks for any occasion. These Söfft styles can be so versatile, you’ll be amazed at the many different ways you can wear them!

Up first, the Gazelle in a sultry crimson suede. This shoe is a real eye-catcher, with it’s oversized straps that hug the foot and shiny patent piping along every edge. It begs to be shown off with skirts and dresses, but even pairs well with elongating pants thanks to its subtly sexy peep toe. This is the quintessential transition shoe to get you ready for the cooler weather on the way!

At the Office
