Hottest shoe looks for fall: "Chunkier heels with a square profile for a heavier weight [and] 1960s-inspired ankle booties with elastic panels reminiscent of the flatter versions I pulled for [the 1996 film] 'I Shot Andy Warhol.' Combat boots are [also] staying strong for fall '13. From casual to embellished, they continue to be the must-have boot."
Must-have materials: "Pony hair and laser cutouts of velvets in large motifs."
Biggest influencers: "The latest production of 'The Great Gatsby' will have a huge influence, as will streetwear posted on international fashion blogs."
On the way out: Solids. "They can't compete with the textures, color combinations and prints for fall '13."
