Animal Print Shoes

Animal prints abound in fashion accessories.  These zebra print ballerina flats just below right are from online site They come in a range of colours including the red red zebra flats in Audrey style.

The ballerina flats are made in several animal prints of varying scales and impressed leathers as well as golden tones.  Many more gold ballerina flats are featured on the gold accessory page.Zebra print pumps from

Some of the styles at pretty ballerinas are delightful.  I especially like these animal print ballerina shoes with gold bows and these red rose suede ballerina shoes.  In fact I might order a pair of either quite soon!  They look perfect for Christmas too and what great gifts they would make, they really are so very pretty.

Women's Fashion Boots

Ankle boots with bow trim from PrinciplesThis winter my preference though is for laced up shoes or bootie shoes like these wonderful feminine ankle boots left from Principles.  The laced up shoes are by River Island.

Boots by PrinciplesIf you area traditionalist when it comes to women's fashion boots, then these heeled suede tan boots may carry you through the winter.

They will tone well with all those gold clothes you add to your wardrobe. Tan suede boots like these from Principles right, also look great with denim.

Many women's fashion boots have extra straps which have either biker or equestrian associations.  

These practical and affordable styles of fashion boots below are all from Benetton.  With the hottest look once again being Equestrian riding touches in boots.

By wearing ribbed tights or dark colours like plum, bottle green, black, grey, brown, violet it's possible to show lots of leg in tights.  If these are too dull for you consider figured, lace or motif tights such as these by NEXT DIRECTORY UK.

Contemporary looks this fall are easily achieved by the addition of opaque tights.  Wolford are known leaders of some of the best fashion tights that will last and not look mangled easily with wear.  Choose sheer pantyhose more carefully so that it is sheer rather than old lady looking. You can find a great selection of tights at

Even argyle pattern knee socks were given an airing at fashion shows.


No-shows are marketing man's answer to capture lost sales of tights in summer.  These fashion accessories are also useful too.  They consist of foot tubes or cases that cover just the toes, foot sole and heels or are simply no more than a foot band, a toe band or an ankle band.  This image is courtesy of NEXT UK where you can buy these no-shows online.  Briefer versions exist from other manufacturers.

 No-shows the latest way to keep comfortable without tights.

In the past we might have thought them a variation of trouser socks, but they are not true socks as they don't even totally cover the foot.  The intention is that there is no show. The reason that some women still wear tights in summer, even on hot days, is to protect their feet with a fine layer between shoe and foot.  Many have thought the heat discomfort worth it to not have raw rubbed feet.

These no-show items are meant to be worn with sandals and other summer footwear to prevent chafing and blisters in hot weather.  No-shows are the new answer to uncomfortably hot tights.  Pantyhose manufacturers are clapping their hands at the development of this new product ever since the no-show concept was created in 2001.  Please don't confuse no-shows with stocking fabric trouser socks to the knee.  The no-shows are a slip-on and on occasion, a little like complimentary airplane slippers you may have been given on long flights, or perhaps similar to a brief and simple tennis wrist sweat band.  Note that Michael Kors will be releasing no-shows this autumn.
