It’s September next week. We’re entering into a new season and a new season means new shoes. When you change over your closet to the cooler temperatures, there’s always something that needs to be replaced or a gap that needs to be filled. We’ll help you make those decisions early and go over the Fall Shoe Trends to watch this year. We’ll be covering colours/prints, styles, and materials you should be keeping your eye out for. To kick things off lets look at the to die for colours and prints:
This summer favs is sticking around and even taking it up a notch. Be prepared to see all kinds of shoes styles completely covered in large, and in charge, animal prints. The summer offered a lot of subtle options but Fall is going about the bold and statement print. This includes zebra, leopard, snake, and croc in particular.
If you thought metallics went out with last Fall, you are not so sadly mistaken. They’ve come back this year to take all forms, including a personal favourite of the soft metallics. The soft metallics make for a much more subtle and versatile shoe. It adds just enough flair to your closet so you can pair them with daytime pieces or work it for night time events.
Fall is going to be a time of colour. You’ll be seeing all sorts of deep, vibrant shades from greens to blues to yellows and purples or reds. The colours are the perfect balance between not to bright and not too dark so they can flattering for many different skin tones. If your wardrobe leans more dark or neutrals tones, these could add a great pop of colour.
Tartan (aka Plaid)
The real new player to the game is the tartan/plaid patterns making their way onto footwear. Common typically on jackets, scarves and skirts, this pattern is looking to embrace a new area of your wardrobe being found on all kinds of shoes. Ranging from dark and subtle to contrasting and bold, there’s a tartan print for everyone.
