Black pumps might be okay for the office, but when it comes to a shoe that really speaks to you, we're betting on a patterned, printed pump. This past season's obsession with ladylike silhouettes and all-over print has produced a huge range of simple pumps that are splashed with this on-trend stripes, brocade, and even flomo.
For easy print-mixing (imagine how fabulous these would look with a striped dress or a floral trouser!) or a no-brainer way to make a pair of skinny jeans sing, these patterned pumps might even knock those pistol boots out of the top tier in your hierarchy of fall shoes (might...we said might).
