Fall Preview: Elaine Turner

Elaine Turner has put a spirited twist on the classics. For her fall ’11 collection, the Houston-based designer was inspired by “uptown city refinement meets weekend effortless style.” Stilettos, rounded-toe ballet flats and stacked-heel boots are paired with pony hair, embossed snakeskin and buttery metallic leathers, with quintessential Turner elements such as bamboo buckles and heel treatments. The collection retails for $125 to $425 at Elaine Turner boutiques, Elaineturner.com and select boutiques.
