As the fashion frenzy continues and most fashion weeks are wrapped up for the year, we take you to the next-big-trend in shoes! With trends changing every season it’s difficult to forecast a style that will see the end of the season. However, with fall/winter ‘officially’ doing the rounds this time of the year and designers already giving us a bit of Spring in the chills, we take you back in time. No, we’re not referring to anything yesteryear but instead something that’s all-season appropriate. Our weekend pick is the heels with a twist of decoration and ornamentation this season. Crystals, embellishments, lace trims, bows and silken prints- the heels seem to have it all for the chic-finder in you to try...Here’s what the Sk shoe-addicts absolutely love!
Though the chills are here, it’s never too-cold to strut around in boots; we believe those boot wearers deserve the stares they get! However, if you love the boots as much as us pick a pair of open-toe booties instead. The boots don’t have to be regular knee-length leather or even fur-inspired ones. We love Bottega Veneta's suede with animal pattern stitching design and wedge-booties from D&G which are inspired by a printed scarf. This is minimalistic yet statement-y and can be worn for fall. These ‘warmth’ inducing shoes are just about perfect for the season.
The Ralph Lauren winter 2013 collection featured an eye-catching brocade design with Filigree heels and gold accents. Wear this type of shoe with a little black dress and it will easily be the statement piece of your outfit. Decorative high heels are perfectly paired with your shorter dresses and skirts, and can be a great way to add a glamorous and luxe touch to any ensemble.
If you’re feeling a little off-beat, try the zig-zag Missoni heels. This AW/F they showcased their iconic design pattern on clothes, mufflers and even took them to the shoes. The Toblerone-shaped heels were overlaid with triangular-shaped studs. Is it a bit too bold for the feet? We think not! We already told you how studs and spikes area full blown rage out now. Now, think ankle-straps and studded heels together. Gucci’s Madison sandals are edgy, chic and a completely statement-wise to sport.
Spruce up your daily outfits by adding a pair of statement shoes and make it work for the day as well the glamorous night out! Boots, stilettos, t-strapped heels are your chicest fashion finds.
