New York, London, Milan, Paris; the hotspots of all things fashion forward. With these fashion weeks in full swing, we're getting a look into the top trends of next season, some of which are popping up in our new arrivals. Take a look at some of our favourite shoe moments fresh off of the runway and see which one you would dare to rock!
Layering Leather: How to Rock Slouchy Boots
Our take (left to right): Louise Et Cie Women's Waldron in Brown, Jessica Simpson Women's Ladee in Black, Vince Camuto Women's Cottara in Animal Print
The higher the better, thigh boots are the rising stars of the season. Forget all the rules on how to rock above-the-knee boots and take a tip from fashion month, where we’re seeing these slouchy silhouettes paired with almost anything. Hide some wool socks under your boots, throw on a sweater dress and go! These designers are giving us full permission to glam up a layered look – this autumn, we have no time for bare knees, it’s all about the slouch.
Square Up: Say Goodbye to the Rounded Toe
Our take (left to right): Sam Edelman Women's Leeanne in Black, Vince Camuto Women's Tathela in Animal Print, Franco Sarto Women's Marquee in Black
Cut a sharp, geometric profile with square toes and square heels. This year, we’re seeing this blocky trend take over both mens and womenswear. Add an edge (literally) to your A/W getup with styles inspired by this year’s runway shows. The clunky square-toe pump has replaced the round-toe boot as the shoe of the season, and we’re ready to try it on.
Not Your Mother’s Heels: Embrace the Unexpected
Our take (left to right): Sam Edelman Women's Daffodil in Blue, Camper Women's Alright in Black, Sam Edelman Women's Doriss in Black
One size does not fit all: with playful touches and twisted accents, this year’s runway heels were inventive, in unpredictable shapes. Stray from the mainstream styles and try out an elevated sole that’s “not like the other girls.” From boots to sandals, this trend is taking over, and everyone is working together to be different from the rest.
Bright like a Diamond: The Bejewelled Base
Our take (left to right): Lifestride Women's Posh in Silver, Vionic Women's Avvy Loafer in Black Suede, Jessica Simpson Women's Welles in Black
Calling Carrie Bradshaw: this season is taking jewel-buckled shoes to a whole other level. Think your go-to heels in crazy prints, worn with bold bling and lucky charms. Forget about your usual accessorizing and put your best foot forward to frost yourself in gems from the ground up.
Sky High: Mountainous Mary Janes
