Shoes and Boots Trend Report FW 2015-2016

I’ve examined new collections presented by designers at Fashion Weeks from New York to Paris and I am happy to present you Shoe Trend Report for Fall and Winter 2015-2016. To be honest, just a few trends are suitable for everyday wear but I am pretty sure that you will find some that gonna easily fit into your office and everyday style.

Shoe Trend №1: High Over-the-Knee Boots for Fall and Winter 2015-2016

It is difficult to say exactly what inspired so huge a lot of designers to create such a provocative over-the-knee boots, but the fact is obvious: they are Number One trend of the upcoming fall and winter season.

I am not claiming that the second sexual revolution is close at hand. However, now the demand for the boots and clothing like the heroine of the movie “Pretty Woman” had, is unequivocally here.

Well, the fact is that the cloths worn with such boots show the female body parts a little less than fully. Fashion designers are in the know there is a demand for such a, let’s say, style from their advisers and experts who track the preferences of consumers three hundred sixty five days a year, seven days a week and twenty four hours a day.

Fiction VS Reality

Fiction VS Reality

I am not conservative I hope, and style and beauty canons adopted in the nineteenth century have never been my guidelines – never ever, to tell you the truth. Still, I could hardly imagine where you could wear those boots, as they are neither suitable for work nor for weekend errands and walks. Well, let’s wait and see how they will wear them – I might be completely wrong.

However, if your demi-season boots are up to mid-calf or shorter, you could wear them wherever you go. These are really gorgeous and classy, aren’t they not?

Trendy Fringe Boots for Fall 2015

The uprising of this trend is quite natural as all fashion tendencies tend to repeat with certain variations on average every 20-30 years. Perhaps you remember those jackets with fringe and cowboy style boots that were popular in the ’90s.

I am 99% sure that fringe boots will gain popularity among the street fashionistas this Fall.

Why? – Cos’ they are beautiful. (c)

I saw lots of them at Burberry Fashion Show FW 21015-2016:

It’s really difficult for me to sort the shoes out into distinct inclinations – sometimes a particular pair encompasses two or even three trends. For example, which trend does a knee boot on the left in the photo belong to,  considering it’s decorated with fringe (trend #2) and it opens a pedicured toe, which is another trend for this Fall and Winter 2015-2016? I have no idea. Do you?

High Heels for Fall and Winter 2015-2016

Modern fashion restlessly violates all possible rules, makes weird experiments and contradicts itself. For example, according to the shoe craftsmen rules, shoes / boots decoration should be placed on the front of a shoe. And every time and again you might witness those shoe designers who accentuate the back of a shoe or a boot.

By the way, can you decide which pair of shoes you would buy if you could purchase one pair only? I can’t stop wavering between the smart and the beautiful. It’s just impossible for me to decide.

These two pairs of shoes are incredibly different in style, manner and appearance and they both are so French style in the same time, aren’t they?

When buying boots for Fall 2015, look for a pair which heels made of plastic, metal or wood. Opt for a kind of a personality in a pair of shoes.

Simone Rocha &  Philippe Fortunato (Givenchy) claim that a shoe heel doesn’t have to be high to be worn in High Street:

Loafers and Moccasins for Fall 2015

Loafers is a kind of classic style shoes, their design is similar to design of moccasins. The only difference between these two is that loafers have solid sole and a wide massive heel. I spotted loafers in lots of collections, say, Bally, Miu Miu, Prada, Bottega Veneta, Commes des Garsons and Stella McCartney.

All the beauties at the Chanel Fashion Show FW 2015-2015 had same shoes you see on the left in the photo:

Trendy Shoes Fall 2015: Decor it All Over!

Actually, it’s not only heels that will sparkle and show off thought the season. Lots of fashion designers introduced shoes decorated with faux gems and Swarovski stones. Sometimes shoes go with a brooch which you could pin to get more glamour to your look and feel feet.

Laced Shoes FW 2015

Most likely the designers’ growing attention for all kinds of lacing is a post-effect of watching “50 Shades of Gray”. Or it’s just their business respond to consumers’ demands?

Anyway, there were a lot of ankle boots and shoes with lacing at the FW Fashion Shows 2015-2016 . You could opt for a pair of laced shoes by Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Chloé or Marissa Webb.

Fishnet tights you can see on the left in the photo is also in vogue, and I mentioned this trend in Fashion Trend Report FW 2015-2016. So wear such tights with laced boots in Marsala color, and that’ll be it.

Furry Shoes and Boots for Fall and Winter 2015-2016

Fur coats, accessories and even dresses are extremely popular in Fall and Winter 2015-2016. Well, what could be more logical that wearing shoes made of leather and fur throughout the coldest season of the year, you might ask. Still, this trend is considered to be the most avant-garde  one of all in the season, and only most daring fashionistas will be able to tame it.

Just look at the photos and decide whether you agree with me or not:

Yes, these sandals are also from Fall-Winter 2015-2016 collection, not the Spring-Summer one, I’m pretty sure of it. Sure, furry sandals is an oxymoron like cliché an ordinary miracle or dry water. But it’s hard to change the facts and we have these shoes:

Balenciaga suggested a modest version of the trend:

However I succeeded in finding fur winter boots for which I am extremely thankful to Andrew Gn:

Cut Out It Shoe Trend FW 2015-2016

To draw attention to your legs and add a little oomph to the style you’d better decide in favour of the boots with cut outs in any unexpected places.

Please, abstain from wearing ankle boots with cut outs when it’s cold outside!

Color Blocking Boots for Fall & Winter

Shoes with color blocks are perfect to make a bright accent to a monochromatic outfit. I strongly recommend you to consider this trend thoroughly.

Suede clothing is a must this Fall and Winter. So are suede boots.

All you need to get a super-glamorous look is to choose a bag to match one of the colors of the shoes.
