Fall’s Biggest Shoe Trends || Step Into The New Season With Style
It’s hard to believe we’re already discussing fall trends, but it is what it is. If you’re a fashion enthusiast, it’s time to embrace your transitional wardrobe, drawing inspiration from the emerging trends of the upcoming season. Here are the shoe trends you should keep an eye out for. Happy shopping!
1 || Bedazzled Footwear
The spark is still in. The beauty of this trend is that it gives you the best of many worlds, from the shine of actual glitter (without all the mess), to the colorful fun, and the fairytale effect. So if you are looking for something sleek, playful, and edgy, you might want to consider investing in an iridescent item. Remember, the blingier, the better.
2 || Two In One
Dior, Marni, and Louis Vuitton are among the brands opting for a return to timeless color combinations in their footwear choices. Two-tone shoes have graced the runway, injecting intrigue into even the simplest looks. The black-and-white blend emerged as particularly prominent.
3 || Cozy Footwear Taken Outdoors
When you think of cozy, furry slippers you imagine a chilling day at home. But this fall’s runways have proven it is time to take this comfort outdoors. Fur has been seen spilling out from under high-heeled flip-flops and horse-bit pumps, offering a plush cloud of luxury for cushioning feet, or completely enveloping clogs and boots, introducing texture to ensembles paired with more two-dimensional dresses.
4 || Sock Boots
Designers have found inspiration in one of the most beloved accessories of Gen Z – leg warmers -. Some, like Sandy Liang, took this influence to heart, pairing the leg warmers with her iconic ballet flats. Meanwhile, others embraced a more minimalistic approach, as seen with Bottega Veneta, which presented a sleek interpretation with flat leather boots resembling knit socks. JW Anderson went extreme, sending models down the runway in actual socks.
5 || It’s T Time
Fall 2023 runways took us years back with designers drawing inspiration from old trends to form today’s fashion. And while we have seen many trends coming from the 70s and 80s, T-bar shoes originated in the 1920s and we can’t wait to wear the 2023 version.
6 || Sky High
knee-highs that replace your pants are here to stay. From Loewe to Stella McCartney, you’ll find a lot of pant-boot alternatives to your traditional jeans. These will come in handy if you’re considering extending the lifespan of your microskirts into the colder months.
7 || Walking on Whimsy
Quiet luxury is nice, but what if you are feeling like making a statement today? Fun footwear might be the best answer. Jonathan Anderson is clearly having a grand time, especially now that his comical balloon heels, crafted from actual latex balloons, have hit the stores for shopping. At Chanel, Virginie Viard introduced a quirky fishnet boot adorned with patent and bow accents, quickly achieving the same collector’s status as the funky glitter boot from 2017. Mrs. Prada’s origami ballet flats, with their tips resembling a folded paper bouquet, certainly seem to have been designed with a playful wink or two. While we’re not suggesting you forgo dressing in luxurious layers of fabric this fall, why not consider injecting a touch of humor with footwear that adds some zest to your look?
8 || The Modern Clog
The clogs are back with a twist. Designers are thinking out of the box introducing us to new unexpected silhouettes of this style such as the clog boot that is making a splash. With all the modern designs offered this fall, this footwear is proved to be one of the key looks for the season ahead.
