Women’s shoes Fall/Winter 2017-2018 reject the minimalist functionality in favor of refined design and rethinking the old forms. High boots, stylish and comfortable low boots, pointed pumps and open sandals – all these accessories are fascinated by the radiance of satin and glitter, the unexpected softness of velvet and plush, the futuristic design of the heel and amazing cosmic platform and wedges.
The incredible popularity of silver metallic has led to the fact that shoes with flickering and iridescent glitter becomes an unexpected and non-trivial fashion trend. If you think that sparkling silvery boots or shoes are only for an evening style, you are mistaken. Designers teach us to wear them casually, adapting to the everyday style.
A lot of time has passed since Prada presented in one of their collections amazing fur shoes. Now even natural fur shoes don’t surprises us, whether it’s high winter boots, stylish low boots of genuine leather or feminine pump shoes.
Wide bootleg, pointed upturned toe, sloping heel and authentic decor with fringe and metal rivets – this is how we are used to see cowboy boots. This way, or perhaps, significantly transformed, we continue to observe this kind of footwear on the runway.
Socks with sandals and classic shoes
A controversial and ambiguous trend returns. Again, the socks can be worn not only with high boots and ankle boots, but also paired with pump shoes or feminine open sandals with thin straps.
Futuristic heels and platforms
We continue to strive upwards, and it is even easier to do this if you have high-heeled shoes or a bizarre platform on your feet. The future, which, as we see, has already come.
Ski boots or moonwalkers
We have repeatedly observed the successful introduction of sports style in everyday life, and this is another version. Fashionable boots that resemble ski boots – massive, strange and very warm.
You can pay attention not only to the unusual heel, but also to the contrasting toe area. Most often, designers offer us shoes and boots from genuine leather, with the toe trimmed with a metal tab.
Soft and warm slippers
Surely many of us have slippers that look like funny plush toys, with muzzles, ears, very warm, but not fashionable at all. It seemed to us earlier, and now we have seen on the runway these shoes which is definitely not intended for wearing in a bedroom with pajamas.
Velvet and corduroy shoes
Velvet or more affordable shoes from corduroy for a couple of years is a permanent resident of the fashion runway. For the current Fall/Winter season with its eternal aspiration for soft textured fabrics and a natural passion for warming, velvet shoes is a must have evening accessory.
Fringe and tassels
We can’t do without fringe where the cowboy style takes its place. However, it appears not only on country boots, but also on quite elegant shoes and boots, which can and should be worn with cocktail dresses or street style outfits.
Huge heels and platform
Such shoes have proved their ambiguity more than once. They look very impressive from afar, and this is all. If you are not afraid of them, then take a look at these shoes and ankle boots with a dizzying platform.
Wedge shoes and boots
Wedge sandals are traditionally the basic summer shoes for girls, but the warm season is not the only one, when we need this type of platform combined with the heel. The Fall/Winter season as never before is rich in wedge footwear.
There were times when pointed shoes were a kind of a bad taste and they were soon replaced by a rounded and square toe footwear. Today we have an opportunity to choose from a huge range of pointed toe shoes, which can be adapted to absolutely any style of an outfit.
Python skin footwear
Snake skin for bags and shoes is the basic trend that designers bring into the current seasonal trends. The whole secret is in the texture and mood, which this leather gives to shoes and boots. It can be playful, aggressive, sexy, but never boring and colorless.
To make women’s shoes catchy and attractive, you do not need to make a choice in favor of multi-colored shoes or models with numerous decorative elements. They can easily be replaced with shoes with massive metal buckles.
Just like a soft velvet, the shining gentle satin continues its stylish stay in the ranks of the current tendencies of Fall/Winter season 2017-2018. And just like velvet, satin is recommended for a special occasion, when its refined noble glow is especially noticeable in one-shaded fabrics.
Metallic studs and rivets
Metal studs, round hollow rivets make women’s footwear invulnerable and brutal. If the girl’s decor in the form of floral prints and bold bows of satin ribbons seems to you beaten and unsuitable for style, pay attention to leather boots or even pumps with gold and silver studs.
Lacing and bondage style
Following the fashionable lacing, which decorates any footwear on all sides in a functional or decorative way, more and more often in the collections we can observe the sort of the “bandaging” of the foot. These can be wide leather strips, or thinner satin ribbons.
Sporty style shoes
The fusion of everyday fashion and traditional sports style is becoming ever closer. Along with ski boots or fashionable moonwalkers, on the runway we have seen some unusual footwear pieces, similar to figure skates, and also a lot of boots and shoes, borrowing authentic features of sports sneakers and trainers.
Large bows and flowers
Decoration of shoes and ankle boots with bows and large flowers migrates from summer to winter, and, without any doubt, this trend will find themselves even there. After all, the winter is as rich as possible in big social events where we can put on these eye-catching shoes.
Cute slippers for autumn and winter? Why not, if they are made of suitable material and worn according to the appropriate occasion.
New fashionable Chelsea boots seems to be deprived of brutality and unisex facelessness, gaining many features from fashion accessories of the current season.
Charming shoes that seem to have come down from the Renaissance paintings or have lain a few decades forgotten in the chest … On the other hand, all these retro shoes have many distinctive signs that make them ultramodern, like fringe, tassels, futuristic platform or a high wedge.
