Fall Winter 2017 Shoe Trends: the 5 boots you need this season
If you’re one of those people who’d wear their boots even to the beach, good news for you: time to get a new pair! 2017 is the year for boot lovers, since these shoes will be a must and the runways gave us plenty of different styles, in various colors and materials. So, what should you invest on, considering the Fall Winter 2017 shoe trends? We had a look at recent fashion shows and selected the 5 boots you need this season! What’s your favorite?
SHIMMERY BOOTS They win the crown as the most instagrammed piece of the Fall Winter 2017-2018 season – and with good reason, since they turn heads! The new glittery boots by Saint Laurent, brainchild of Vaccarello, desired by many, and the antecedent of the many more eye-catching boots that came at a later time, winners of hearts. From Chanel to Scognamiglio to Alexis Mabille, the key words are glitter, sequins, and gold and silver.
SOFT BOOTS They were a must-have in the 2000s and have made a comeback on the Fall Winter 2017-2018 runways; you’ll soon see them at the feet of celebs and fashion icons, we bet! Loose on the legs, they “wrinkle” with different final results depending on whether they are ankle, knee-high, or over the knee, and give your style a lot of personality. From the minimal wedge boots by Lacoste to the incredible (and super beautiful) ones by Y/Project, to the cult item of the season – the boots designed by Saint Laurent.
SOCK BOOTS They fit like a glove around your foot and leg: tight around your shapes, there’s no way to hide imperfections! If you’re thick around the calves, then move away from high stretch boots such as Balmain‘s and opt for those by Burberry: you’ll still be trendy, and your legs will thank you.
LACE UP BOOTS The laced-up effect is here to stay – and not just for shoes. Rather than ballet flats though, the Fall Winter 2017-2018 fashion shows seem to have been inspired by mountain wear: the style is definitely sporty and gritty, even though these are still fancy, heeled boots, and the laces are often in bright colors, just like mountaineering ropes. Very cool, though we must ask: how long will it take us to put them on in the morning? (Please, tell us there are zips hidden in there!)
BUCKLED BOOTS Straight from the 60s, suede or jacquard style, jeweled, or very much 90s style, with minimal buckles and modern materials such as snakeskin and calfskin: if you’re looking for some basic boots with interesting details, buckles are for you: you’ll nail the style.
