Our southern hemisphere placement affords us Aussie shoppers some benefits from being off-season to the fashion capitals of New York, London, Paris and Milan. While we're staring down the barrel of Winter, the US is happily skipping into Spring — which means that their trend forecasters are elbow-deep in 'Fall' trends for 2013. WWD recently surveyed a number of celebrity stylists to see what footwear trends they deem investment-worthy. Luckily for us, this works perfectly for our next shoe-splurge. We distilled the advice given by Phillip Bloch, Laura Solin, Sarah Ellison Lewis and Christie Maruka for your perusal. See our take home points below, then get a-clicking to shop the trends sooner rather than later. As in, today. Go on!
