HOW TO WEAR THEM
These shoes were made to be seen! Match any select pair with a pencil skirt or knee length dress, just like actress Keira Knightley. When wearing pants, make sure they are tube type, like this model made popular by Katie Holmes. And though the footwear is a classic style, it works well with causal outfits to boot! Do as Spanish fashion guru Vega Royo-Villanova did and upgrade your casual outfit with your favorite penny loafer pair.

Whether they're simple heels, platforms, booties or the ever classic Mary Janes, show off the fun footwear with pants, mini dresses, short skirts or tube jeans. When dealing with colors, feel free to combine them with the shades of your outfit, as did Zoë Saldaña, Rihanna, Alejandra Espinoza and Andrea Torre, or go chic with neutral tones if the occasion calls for it. Another trend of the fall is to dress in one single color. So keep in mind that you can pair any single color outfit with matching leather shoes for the perfect unified look.

Mimic the style of actress Anna Kendrick by wearing laced peep toe booties with shorts and a casual sweater. Emma Watson shows us that the right mini dress goes great with a raincoat and ankle high boots or booties; two excellent options for the chic autumnal look. However lace-up high boots seem to be competing for the top spot as well. Opt for a platform pair to compliment your semi-formal wear, just like Geri Halliwell, or go simple for a more relaxed look ala Alexa Vega.

This season marks the return of wide heel platform shoes and booties, an ideal style that provides both a super trendy look and comfort, as the width helps distribute body weight much better than the thinner type. Such styles ruled the runway shows of designer including Derek Lamb, Chanel and Proenza Schouler.
Here are a few ideas that will help make your fall season outfit stand above the crowd:
Pumps in dark chocolate leather from the Trouvé collection, $99.95 at Nordstrom.com.

WEAR THEM WITH STYLE
Bring out the retro footwear and add a personal touch to your ensemble for any occasion this fall. For the casual outfit, try to lean towards booties like the young Demi Lovato (left) or go the route of high heels if you wish, just make sure they are wide platform style. If formalwear is the theme, choose a more dressy design, like these favorites of Leona Lewis, actress Cristiana Capotondi and Rashida Jones.
