Tuesday Shoesday ~ LFW trends for Spring 2014

As London Fashion Week draws to a close, I’ve been looking back over the catwalk shows to find out the emerging footwear trends for Spring/Summer 2014. Don’t get me wrong, I love watching the clothes going down the runway, but really I’m watching what the models have on their feet! Take this photo of the Mary Kantrantzou show last week – lots of photographic prints and embellished textures on the dresses – but take a look at the shoes, and you can get an idea of what’s to come for next Spring: laser-cut lace-ups, pastels, fuchsia pink, chunky soles and ankle straps.

I really like these colours  and the mid-blue is cute for Spring before we hit the high summer pastels. Here is another example of pastels and ankle-high shoes heading down the runway at the Burberry show:

Burberry’s soft spring/summer 2014 collection was complimented by the pastel footwear and again, this shows that high-heeled sandals with ankle straps will be popular in S/S14.  The bright pink makes another appearance (I must put pink shoes on my shopping list!) and the thick t-bar will no doubt be copied on the high street next season.

Keeping an eye out for these footwear trends means that you can shop in the last of the Summer sales knowing that the pastel footwear and high-heeled ankle-strap sandals you’re buying now will be fashionable for next year. You can get yourself a bargain to store over Winter and pull out again in the Spring and I’m delighted to know that I’ll be able to wear my bargain Next chunky pastel sandals again next year and still be following the trends – although nothing would have stopped me from wearing these beauties anyway, because they are so comfortable!
