Leave the dainty jewelry at home: Fall calls for big, regal rocks

Give ’Em the Bootie
Great boots come in small packages

1 Named for the Sun King’s exceedingly ornate palace, Jason Wu’s Versailles bootie is studded with Swarovski crystal flowers and curlicues, and the heel is clad in rose gold. Louis XIV would be proud. $2,150 / www.jasonwustudio.com

2 Women who have been waiting for footwear to go with the Fifth Element bandage-dress look: Rejoice! Alejandro Ingelmo ushers in the future with his Sydney Opera House–shaped Origami bootie. $1,770 / www.alejandroingelmo.com

3 Walking in Camilla Skovgaard’s platforms might take some getting used to, but once you’ve got it down, the double-kickstand effect should keep you standing comfortably all night. $870 / www.camillaskovgaard.com

4 Brian Atwood’s Cohen bootie evokes all the best memories of 1980s patent leather pumps — but with sky-high heels thin as wine-glass stems and diamond quilting, there’s a lot less of the earnestness. $981 / www.brianatwood.com
