Allow us to quote it again: a woman can never have too many shoes. For this edition of Fall/Winter trends, we’ve rounded up eight of the best shoe styles from the runway that will keep you in vogue.
1. Block Party
As seen on the runways of Dries Van Noten, Missoni and Max Mara, one prevalent trend is to wear stockings or socks with these chunky beauties.
Pair with a bookish sweater and skirt for a chic downtown look.
2. Wedge Watch
Prominent throughout the Gucci, Prada and Vera Wang shows, these statement wedges and platforms elevate not just your height but your style quotient too.
Add further edge to these bad boys with a brush of grunge – think an all-black ensemble with a classic pair of leather jacket.
3. Heel Heaven
Heels are getting more artistic and opulent by the season! Not for the shrinking violets, it definitely takes moxie to pull one off from the runways of Dolce & Gabbana and Miu Miu.
The best way to tackle this trend? Emulate its decadence by pairing with an embellished frock that’s heavy on glamour.
4. Man Up
We are borrowing from the boys this season. From loafers to oxfords, designers like Rag & Bone, Iceberg and Derek Lam are giving these footwear a desirable feminine spin.
Androgynous soles are best paired with a crisp white shirt and distressed denim for that insouciant air that every cool chick covets.
5. Strappy Feet
Thin straps look best when multiplied as many times as you can fit on a shoe. It is a dainty compliment to a pair of clunky shoes; otherwise, it adds variation to plain pumps.
Add dimension to your everyday ensemble when you gussy up in one of these multi-strap shoes from Bottega Veneta, Mary Katrantzou or Giambattista Valli. Opt for black to ensure its versatility.
6. En Pointe
An unmissable shoe trend from the Fall/Winter runway, brands like Balmain and Louis Vuitton were sporting its ilk. They are chicer than your average round-toe pumps and cast the illusion of legs that go on for days.
These shoes are ideal for a workday ensemble as its sharp silhouette will provide you with chic clout. Take it one step higher the corporate ladder when you pair it with a structured blazer.
7. Knee High
This is a no-brainer – boots are more than just a fad, they are timeless staples for your fall wardrobe.
Lampshade it. A term coined by the team at PopSugar, lampshading is wearing a pair of knee-length boots with a broad hemline that hits right above the shoes, most notably with sweatshirt dresses or oversized sweaters.
8. Here Kitty Kitty
One thing is for sure, this is a trend from the runways of Chanel and Versace that won’t put as much stress on your calves as its taller counterparts. Thank god for kitten heels!
Ladylike is the way to go in kitten heels. A Peter Pan collar and flare skirt combination is both dainty and becoming!
