Shoe Fanatic have written the ultimate shoe style guide for this season to help us decide upon our favourites buys for A/W’11. As far as both designer and high street trends are concerned, what can we expect this season? Read on to find out the shoes we can’t live without for Autumn/Winter ‘11:
Brogues: Designed for comfort, practicality and visual attention, brogues are a personal favourite of mine. Walking to and from lectures in the rainy weather couldn’t be simpler than if you’re sporting a comfy pair of brogues. The brand new Cole Haan ‘Saddle Oxfords’ collection is hot off the press and has only just been discovered. Hand painted with bold block colours blended with premium leather and Nike air technology, these beauties ensure maximum comfort all day. Available exclusively online at colehaan.com – you don’t want to miss out!
Next up is Suede: Okay so not the most durable fabric for the coming season but certainly the most desirable. With endless means to care for suede, you can keep your shoes luxurious looking so it would be impossible not to add some ASOS into your wardrobe. Try the ‘Pump it up’ Suede Platform shoe in Mustard yellow to add some instant zest into your party look.
Texture and detailing are key this season particularly when focusing on shoes. Topshop’s Sacred Velvet Bow Court shoes in Black are to go crazy about! With a chunky platform, decadent velvet finish and feminine bow detail, wear these for the office and be sure to stand out from the crowd.
Metallics are hugely popular right now and can be seen dominating the catwalks and in high street stores also. Go for warm metals with Kurt Geiger’s latest bronze edition to the Sandal trend. Wear with cable knit tights and you’ve got autumn covered.
And finally… let’s not forget flats: Easy to fold up and pop in your tote after a long night of dancing and cocktails, Dune offer a classy selection of lightweight flats including these sequined ballerina pumps; simple and effective.
So whether you choose to go high street or high end, buying footwear which reflects our personalities is all about having fun… especially for the fashion conscious.
