Tuesday Shoesday – New season trends for Autumn

Now that the August bank holiday has passed, I feel like its officially the start of the Autumn/Winter season and I can start the countdown to Christmas without seeming a little too odd. So for this week’s Tuesday Shoesday, I’m having a look at what trends are coming up for the autumn season in the shoe-world.

Winter boots trends: Along with chunkier heels on shoes and boots wedges are going to feature on tall boots, ankle boots, pumps. There appears to be an increase western boot styles and ankle boots are also going to be especially prevalent this fall, as are boots with layers, and fold-back tops. Another mini-trend in women’s boots for fall 2011 is styles that feature quilted uppers, which look snuggly but I don’t know if I could carry it off without looking like an arctic trekker.

For me, I prefer the trend of embellished boots: with a heavy emphasis on their laces, ties, belts, straps, buckles and zippers, cinched uppers, and multiple buckled straps. And another trend that looks very cosy is Faux Fur and Shearling: Even though you may not be wearing these styles until later in the autumn, or early winter you’ll at least be prepared for the first cold and snowy days of winter

            

Metallics: This is one of the biggest trends of the season, including shoes with glitter and crystals, but even if you’re not the glitzy-footwear-type (unlike me, I love a bit of sparkle!) you’ll find shoes in silver, gold, pewterand bronze shades everywhere to choose from instead.

   

I’ve spotted lots of feminine details like bows, ruffles, and flowers / embellishments and animal print remains a favourite. At the same time, big, bold, and chunky heels have also stampeded their way onto the shoe store shelves, but if I wore these heels, I’d look like a small shetland pony – so I’ll stick to the boots this season!
