These styles are hot right now, but have legs for years to come.
From metallic heels to hardware-heavy boots, take it from the style tribes that the best way to upgrade your shoe game is to invest in a seasonally appropriate footwear.
Delve into metallic stilettos for a modern touch to your festive ensemble with styles from Prada, Jimmy Choo, and Pierre Hardy or elevate a blazer moment with combat boots à la Miu Miu and Louboutin.
On the other hand, you can indulge in a bedazzled pair of ballerina flats for contemporary edge. The likes of Alaïa, Prada, and Khaite carry updated silhouettes of silver-studded footwear that feel new and current.
There are unapologetically daring buckles, glittering crystals, and high-shine stilettos, that put the finishing touch on your festive attire.
Here are three fall-winter shoe trends to wear this season and beyond.
The Rise Of The Biker Boot
For those in need of a pair that can accompany you on errands (including through bustling city streets), look to the cool biker boot. A-listers from Kate Moss to Gisele Bündchen have been spotted wearing the covetable shoe with sartorial success. Buckle-y boots hot off Miu Miu’s runway have made their way to the fashion circuits and proven to become a tried-and-tested classic.
Bedazzled Ballet Flats
If you only invest in one shoe this season, perhaps it should be a pair of silver-detailed flats. Silver-studded ballet flats are an everyday shoe that can transition from casual daytime attire to formal occasions.
With a subtle rebellious spirit that shines through, this decorated pair is of-the-moment yet undeniably youthful. Take Alaïa’s crystal-embellished leather ballet flats or Khaite’s sparkling pair of flats—this intricately designed ballet flat shines a spotlight on comfort without skimping on glamour.
Glittering palettes made an appearance on the Fall/Winter 2022 runways with gleaming coordinates, embellished accessories, sequin gowns, and dazzling accessories. From LaQuan Smith to Altuzarra, shimmering pieces are undeniably in this season. These trend-forward shoes have the power to elevate minimalist pieces for an intimate gathering. Yet when paired with a cocktail dress, these light-catching shoes take you to a whole new level of shine at holiday soirées.
