The must-have shoes to step out in this autumn/winter
Article posted: May 9, 2022
It’s the great fashion aspiration: style and elegance that’s also comfy and easy to wear.
Thankfully, the footwear news from the catwalks and most stylish streets of Australian cities is that this autumn/winter, shoes tick all the boxes!
Whether you’re attending a stylish event, wanting to make a mark in the office, or are simply hunkering down for a long weekend brunch, this season’s slingbacks, loafers and sneakers are designed for comfort and style.
Here are the style trends emerging from the fashion-forward shoe stores of Camberwell Junction.
The chunky loafer
While the 90s is generally considered a fashion wasteland of a decade (remember low-rise skinny jeans?), there was one fashion item we all adored – and in autumn/winter 2022 it’s come back for a visit: the chunky loafer.
What’s not to love about a super-stylish shoe that easily slips on and off?
Loafers are based on the most comfortable of footwear, the moccasin, but this season they’re crafted in leather or suede and must have a chunky heel and soul.
Camberwell Junction’s shoe stores are currently showcasing black or neutral shades for work, but for the weekend or evening, why not make your fashion flashback footwear pop by choosing loafers in bright pink or purple?
Life (and style) is all about balance, so while you’re loving your new loafers, make sure you balance it out with time spent in the most feminine of footwear – the slingback.
Delicate kitten heels with a petite slingback will have you channeling the timeless style of Grace Kelly, but don’t limit yourself to the classic. This season, the slingback is a key feature of chunky sandals as well.
If you want to nail two key style trends at once, this season the fashion gods have blessed us with the slingback loafer.
Over the past two years, sneakers have upped their game and are now less of those smelly things at the bottom of your gym bag, and more that statement piece of your most chic ensembles.
This year, sneakers are the number one shoe choice for fashionistas. They are leather and paneled and can have either laces or zips – but there’s one element they must all feature, and we love it. It’s height.
This year’s sneaker is all about the platform, and the higher the platform the more on trend.
Camberwell Junction shoe stores have a wide range of loafers, slingbacks and sneakers to suit everyone’s personal style and will have you stepping out in style this autumn/winter.
