Shoe trends: Fancy footwear for autumn / winter 2019
Article posted: March 29, 2019
Step back to the golden days of style, where the most well-heeled style icons filled the screens and fashion pages with shoes that were sleek, elegant and undeniably luxe.
This autumn/winter highlights a return to glamour footwear – and, happily, comfort.
As any true style icon from eras past will tell you, it’s all about getting the right exposure – and this season, exposure is all about the heel and ankle.
That’s right, book in that pedicure today, because this autumn/winter’s stand out style star is the heel.
Here are the three shoe trends to know for autumn/winter 2019:
Slingback heels are the most charming of shoes, designed to make the wearer feel whimsical and pretty.
From the elegantly pointy toe, to the sweet kitten heel and fine, delicate strap around the ankle, the slingback screams femininity and romance and looks just as luxe on the feet as it does dangling from the finger of a woman returning home from dancing the night away.
The Jo Mercer classic black slingback with a block heel is set to be a staple in every Camberwell woman’s wardrobe.
Country Road’s slingback offering has nailed this season’s hottest colour trend of electric blue, while Witchery is also on colour trend with slingbacks in the prettiest almond pink, and Ziera has slingbacks in both pale pink and blue – take your pick!
This season’s slides are designed for the fashionista with an eye for style and a desire for comfort.
What can be more effortless on a warm autumn day than sliding your feet into chic slides and literally kicking them off at the end of the day?
This year’s autumn/winter slides are all about style and form, and work well when teamed with either structured suits, tailored wide-legged pants, or more flowing maxi skirts.
This season’s most stylish streetwear may be called sneakers but they’re way too luxe for the gym.
Ecco’s structured leather sneaker shows what would happen if a boot and a sneaker had a baby and is the perfect option for the office or a weekend brunch with friends.
Mountfords has taken the sneaker and prettied it up with pin-pricked leather in dusty pink, while Jo Mercer has built on the traditional sneaker shape, crafted it in black leather and added a touch of silver.
