FALL 2012/WINTER 2013 ALL ABOUT SHOES

It’s time to throw yourself out there and take risks with your footwear. Whether it’s through clashing colours, jewels or punk vibrations, we’re talking about making bold statements this season.  Below, I’m going to list the three major trends to keep an eye out for.

As the first item on my list, two-toned heels represent a must-have of the season. Designers, such as Stella McCartney and Miuccia Prada, have decided to no longer limit themselves to the old one colour per shoe motto, introducing a colour-blocking trend to this season’s fashion scene. You can now select from a wide range of reds, blues, greens and why not even yellows, which contrast with a thick sole of a different tone. Some brands, such as Fendi and Balenciaga, have even mixed three colours within a single pair of their deigns. To maintain a sophisticated look, why not also try matching these striking pumps with our Tan Hermes Birkin Style Leather Effect Holdall Handbag With Long Strap, for only £26.99? Paired with a tailored suit, this would represent the perfect workday outfit.

In addition, the time to finally brush up on your reading about the lifestyle of the French royal court has arrived, as this fashion season is praising footwear fir for a queen at Versailles. From crystals to pearls to flakes of gold, the accent is placed on ornamentation. For example, Dolce & Gabbana has created a romantic pair of platform high heel shoes, highly decorated with pastel pink, porcelain roses. In short, baroque is the new ‘in’ fashion era to look to for inspiration.

With the colder weather setting in, it’s only natural that the last key trend of the season be boots. This time around, we’re wearing them just below the knee, with a preference for black leather. The style adopts a slight punkish attitude, especially evident in Lazaro Hernandez’ and Jack McCollough’s Doc-Martens-style design for Proenza Schouler. Alexander Wang also opted for the punk tendency, producing a pair of fine leather peep toes.

So, you see? This fall/winter season is all about being original. Take advantage of the many selection of designs and decorations to let your own personality seep through. Most importantly, have fun – not every fashion season allows you to go a little crazy!
