Designers have spoken and the run ways have displayed, fall is around the corner and all footwear is set to rock your feet this fall. Expect some 80’s returns like the DO SLOUCH, fabrics like satin and velvet. The season’s colors shall be hot red and white but some matt brown, orange and black are also expected. From the runways of Milan, Paris, New York and more, here are the top 5 shoe trends the designers have prepared for you.
Armies around the world have been at war for long in the past few years and shoe designers seem to be celebrating the military man’s work with lots of stylish combat shoes. Prepare your leggings, high waists leather jacks and your round skirts and dresses for the perfect match with combat boots. The men will be wearing the hard cut sole shoes with skinny jeans and leather jackets. Celebrity’s Kanye West and Justin Bieber have already sampled us with their combat boots.
Fall is not complete without a pair of sneakers and yes there will be sneakers of all sorts and for every purpose in lots of colors and choices. White will, of course, be the season’s highlight for sneakers. You can match it with your sky blue jeans and still wear it with your pretty cut-out denim. There will be pretty gym sneakers for the work-out lady. Lifters for the lifting man, beautiful runner sneakers, and sneakers to fit every activity and outfit. Other cool colors to expect on sneakers this fall are pink and purple for the ladies, red, blue and black with lots of strips for the men, and a bit of animal prints and flowers for the kids and everyone.
Sky high boots & Sock boots
Sky high boots in matt brown and red hot are some of the boots to expect. A similar trend that we saw was the elastic and comfortable sock boot. In fact, there were all over the runways. Models show cased sock boots with flowery dresses. They pulled them over their jeans and paired them with slip dresses and sweater dresses. Sock boots are an 80’s and 70’s inspiration. They worked even during the summer but are back for fall. Don’t forget to stock enough miniskirts as they too will give you the perfect look with sock boots
A lot of sparkles
Ladies brace you for some shine. There will be lots of embellishment and embroidery. Flowery, animal and several other themed adornments. The sparkles are on almost all shoe types. We saw them on pumps, caged heels etc.
Heels with both large and slim figures are the way to go. On the runways at Paris fashion week we saw heels designed in the form of castles. There were heels that looked like diamonds and others like metallic. Fabrics like velvet also braced the catwalks. Heels make your legs look longer and sexier and you can’t go through any season without them. Make sure you pick an artistic heel but that is comfortable enough. Heels with very thin soles will make your feet hurt and leave blisters on them.
