When it comes to looking for the latest trends for footwear or any other type of fashion, then the catwalk shows are always good inspiration. It is often the case that the catwalk trends don’t always translate directly into something we can wear on the high street but it is always good to see what the top fashion designers like for the season.
Here is a quick inspiration guide to what fantastic fall footwear will we be wearing this autumn?
The combination of the thin, high heel with the pointed toe is a big trend this fall. The addition of the ankle strap makes these styles a little easier to wear and add further feature to the design. Calvin Klein are one big name who have ventured into this style for their autumn collection.
If the pointed pump is a little too much like torture for your feet, then the popularity of the ballerina styles will be welcome news. From ankle boots with straps wrapped around the ankle to full ballerina style shoes, these looks are popular this autumn. Some designers have even taken the high heels pump and added the ballerina strap to have the workwear look with a little on-trend finishing.
Tight knee length boots
Knee length boots are always popular at this time of the year but this year, the trend is to take the height include second skin style materials. This means stretchy materials or leather with a lot more movement in it than normal. Some of the styles look more like a pair of tights or leggings than boots which can look very sexy. Velvet is an on-trend material for this autumn so if you know you can avoid those puddles, then knee high boots made from velvet to coordinate with your outfit would be two trends in one look.
Statement heels and big embellishments
If you like your high heels, then the trend for statement heels will be great for you. If you haven’t encountered it yet, these can range from unusual shaped heels and embellishments such as diamantes through to bows and even elaborate chandelier earring style heels! We love embellishments here at Bundy & Webster so can’t wait to see where this trends goes.
Nor is the heel the only place that embellishments can feature. Adding something different to the shoe from diamantes to pearls to beads of all kinds and much more is a great way to make an outfit truly unique and very in keeping with this year’s trends – just as Gucci and Alexander McQueen’s designers.
Going back a few years and metallic shoes were the domain of the older lady, often accompanied by a certain hair colour and style! But the modern metallic shoe is very much on trend for this autumn for older ladies and younger ones. Some of the big names have jumped into metallic in a big way including Louis Vuitton with their stiletto heels and extremely pointed toe ankle boots.
Not a big fan of these trends but still want some smart new footwear for autumn? Then the classic ankle boot is very big this year in a variety of styles from the shiny metallic and soft sock-like materials through to the understated classic look. So you can pick up a pair and be on trend as well as comfortable.
