If you haven’t had a chance to get a glimpse of the Fall 2015 Shoe Trends yet, no worries, here’s a quick summary!
To start off, big name designers like Prada and Michael Kors, hit fall runway with lots of mixed metallics. Silver, bronze, and gold were found gracing the feet of their models in many quirky fashions from classic Mary Janes, to boyish Oxfords. This year, they weren’t afraid of mixing their metallics, so finding a shoe with both silver and gold side by side was not uncommon.
Gucci, Fendi, and Dolce & Gabbana were rocking some crazy fun designs adorned in fur at this year’s fall runway. Some were a little over the top but made their point that shoes are meant to be a head-turning accessory. My personal favorite fur design came from Brunello Cucinelli, which was a sleek grey fur fronted wedge that would go well with so many fall fashion outfits!
Also making a notable appearance on the runway this fall, from designers like Burberry Prorsum, Etro, and Lanvin, are the slightly 70’s inspired patchwork boots. This design inlay’s different textiles and leathers in contrasting colors and textures, for a look that is literally a “walking piece of art”. Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, and Calvin Klein went with a more subdued color scheme for their fall boot line, sticking to one solid color at a time, but making a statement by taking the boot length from knee all the way up to the daring heights of over the knee and even thigh high.
Bringing some of these high fashion trends into our closets can be both tricky and fun. It’s just a matter of being able to balance practicality with that edginess that high fashion gives us. We would LOVE to see how you are rocking some of these crazy fall fashion pieces! Just share with us by tagging @mdernteen on Instagram, and mentioning this post. Until then, happy accessorizing!
