CHRISTIE MARUKA, Oakhurst, N.J.

Hottest shoe looks for fall: "This fall season is full of glitz and glamour and strong, powerful colors. You will see lots of fur-trimmed boots and booties, over-the-knee boots in sumptuous fabrics, including velvet, [as well as] stacked-heel booties in patent leather and luscious suede in every color combo imaginable. Stilettos will be on every wish list, and 1940s-inspired heels will be a favorite also. Sneakers are everywhere — flat and heeled, sporty and classic. Block-heeled loafers and pointy-toe oxfords will continue to [be on-trend] for some time, as menswear [looks are] an important part of most collections this coming season. Smoking slippers will stick around and continue with added embellishments [such as] gems and studs."

Must-have colors: "Dark gray, rich brown, emerald and deep greens, fuchsia, orange, purple, oxblood and bold blue. Colors [from ready-to-wear] came together to create moods that range from sophisticated and structured to sexy, luxury and a bit of rock ‘n’ roll."

Biggest influencers: Key designers, technology, celebrities, films, the economy, street style and heritage looks. "Some styles are so strong from past seasons [that] designers will expand and re-create the trend to keep it fresh, new and updated."

On the way out: Neon. "As the colors deepen for fall and styles become more luxurious and feminine, neon will be put to sleep."
