The weather is officially turning wintery this week and if you haven’t already started to think about your Autumn/Winter wardrobe, you are way behind your favourite celebrity fashionistas and when the weather turns (as it so suddenly does), you’ll be wishing you’d thought about your autumn look in advance.
Really, the first thing to update is your footwear, because you’ll need to swap those pretty shoes for something more covered-up, warmer and sturdier. It’s one of the easiest ways of updating the previous season’s outfits – just get yourself a pair of statement boots and the rest of the look will follow. If you haven’t got to grips with the Autumn trends yet, don’t panic, because everything you need to know about fall footwear is right here.
The ultimate staple footwear for Autumn/Winter is always ankle boots and you can’t beat them for turning summer outfits into autumn looks with only a pair of leggings! This makes your old summer dresses suitable to wear throughout the colder months, just like Gwen Stefani has done above. Plus, these laser-cut ankle boots are everywhere, and are great for showing little flesh while it’s still warm enough, but keeping things practical with a sensible heel and good support. When winter hits, go for a classic black leather Chelsea boot like Julianne Hough or funk up your autumn look with a monochrome buckled pair of ankle boots. Once you have found your favourite pair of ankle boots, like Nicky Hilton’s lace-up pair above, that’s all you’ll need to keep your wardrobe looking cool until next Spring!
A huge trend for this Autumn/Winter is flat shoes – From cute pumps to ballet slippers, and even the occasional flatform – provided you keep it chic like Reece Witherspoon above – everything goes! These shoes are super-comfortable and will minimize slipping when the sidewalk is wet under-foot and especially practical are high-top trainers like the ones Jessica Alba is sporting – very relaxed and cool, whist also being the easiest-ever shoes to walk in! Funky fabrics were all over the A/W13 catwalk so stay on trend by giving your flat shoes an unconventional twist – choose fabrics such as patent, velvet and perspex.
I hope you can use some of the tips above for updating your own summer wardrobe, so that you’re ready to be super-comfortable and on-trend during the winter months. What will you be putting on your feet this Autumn/Winter? Get in touch and leave me a comment below…
