These are the must-have shoes for autumn/winter 2020
Article posted: April 2, 2020
New fashion looks? Tick. Styled perfectly? Tick. The ‘it’ colours of the season? Tick. Fashionistas of Camberwell are all set to rock the fashion trends for autumn/winter 2020.
Now for arguably the most important decision you’ll make this season: what shoes to choose?
Every woman knows shoes are not simply footwear – they have the power to make or break an entire outfit.
A poor choice of style can bring an otherwise fabulous look to a grinding halt, whereas slipping on a totally on-trend pair can have you striding into the day with confidence and a take-on-the-world attitude.
There are three key shoe trends of autumn/winter 2020, and brands in Camberwell will see you putting your best foot forward.
Shoe trend #1: The low wedge
Ah, the classic wedge – that perfect marriage of fashion and balance, managing to combine the shape and height of a heel, without forcing the wearer to stand on something the size and shape of a pen.
This season’s low wedges deliver the right amount of chunk to be a substantial shoe, with the daintiness and delicate look of a strappy sandal.
Team an espadrille with a light dress and cardigan for a sun-drenched weekend, or a strappy wedge sandal with a power suit to totally nail a look dominating fashion right now.
Shoe trend #2: The punk boot
Nothing says anti-establishment like the chunky black boots of the punk era, but this year the look is designed to delight rather than disrupt.
Back in the day the chunky black boot was best teamed with torn tartan print, nappy-pin piercings and gravity-defying hair. Yet, this season’s punk boot is more likely to be combined with colour-blocked skirt and jacket combinations during the day, and sequins and silk at night.
With a nod to the workman in all of us, the punk boot should be the toughest part of the look. In fact, the greater the juxtaposition between light and heavy, the better!
Shoe trend #3: The casual loafer
Nothing says effortless-Euro-chic like the casual loafer. Easy to slip on and off, casual and dressy, it’s easy to see why the casual loafer has a timeless style.
Choose one pair in classic black suede with subtle gold trim; one pair of statement loafers in bright orange or rusty red (the ‘it’ colour of the season); and another in neutral, which this season means bone or cream.
All the key shoe trends of autumn/winter 2020 are available from Camberwell shopping precinct’s shoe brands.
