Best Fall Trends: Shoes!

So Autumn is finally upon us and I’ve been reading a lot of amazing Autumn fashion posts recently and got so much inspiration! So when the lovely Suzy asked if she could guest post for my blog on fashion I was all for it!

Best Fall 2016 Trends In Shoes At A Glance

Even women, who aren’t remotely interested in fashion rules, have a fetish for shoes and handbags. Unlike clothes and outfits, shoes and handbags have a repeat value, and hence, it is always wise to have some of the trending pieces in the closet. You never know when you get a chance to flaunt your collection. Here are the handpicked shoes for fall 2016 worth trying.

Passionate velvet: For 2016, the favourite fabric of fall is velvet. It has emerged in outfits, shoes and handbags, and there are endless styles and ideas that one can steal from the runways. However, velvet is also one of the tricky ideas to play with. Apart from all the luxurious elements, it is very easy to go wrong with the fabric that one has to be extra quotient. If a velvet dress seems too much for you, a pair of shoes can be safer bet. All you have to do is tone down rest of the things in the look, and you can create and amazing appeal. Make sure that you try velvet shoes with a pair of tights.

Blocked you: Block heels are back on the runway for fall 2016, and it makes perfect sense to get a paid. While block heels are amazingly stylish and trending, these are also very forgiving on the feet and don’t really hurt or offer discomfort as high heels. If you are someone who likes to be on the comfort zone, this is a great trend that would continue for years to come. The good thing is block heels can work with almost anything, right from simple trousers to skirts and dresses. Just make sure that you pick the right heel size.

Over the moon: Boots are classics for the fall, and it seems designers just cannot have enough of over-the-knee designs. One of the best ideas for the fall and beyond, over-the-knee boots is great on both comfort and functionality. If you want to wear those small short dresses and skirts in the winter, this is a must have by all means. You can either play it safe with all the darker shades of black and brown, or else, accenting pairs in red, green or blue is like a smart way of getting attention.

Bonus trend: One of the other trends of fall 2016 that surely deserves a mention is the amazing hardware use. Big buckles and other kinds of hardware were amazingly in style, and you can find something that is both aesthetic and appealing at the same time. Keep an eye on the overall elements to bring the right balance, and you are ready for the kill.

Hope you liked the list of fall 2016 trends. Until we meet again, stay stylish!

      I know they're so gorgeous, but probably not the most necessary of shoes (especially up north where it rains every other day!)
