We’ve already pinpointed our favorite fall/winter 2019 runway shoe trends. But,now we’re breaking it down further with a focus on footwear. After close examination of the spring and fall collections. We’ve determined which sandals to pack on vacay and which boots you’ll be wearing from now until spring 2020 arrives. For this season, designers aren’t completely reinventing the wheel. Instead, they’re building upon the fashion house archives and past trends, adding embellishments here and there. Without further ado, the top 11 shoe trends for 2019.
Fall Florals shoe trends
Set aside your summer floral pieces in favor of moodier and earthier shades for winter. Erdem, Brock Collection, and Zimmermann all presented collections with yellow, blue, and orange flowers against a dark background to signal this is indeed a fall shoe trend. I love this ’70s-inspired ankle boot by Staud for its flawless fall floral execution. So, you’ll find the print echoed in other footwear styles from flats to pointed-toe pumps.
This thick-soled shoe has a long history, from the World War II battlefields and ’50s dandy subculture to the Vivienne Westwood-influenced ’70s punk scene. Louis Vuitton gives the creeper a designer update with its signature logo print. Don’t be afraid to let your favorite socks peek through the top for an extra style statement.
Cozy Shearling shoe trends
We can all use an extra layer of warmth for winter, so shearling-lined shoes will be your feet’s savior this season. Furry material covered all kinds of shoes that came down the fall 2019 runways, from over-the-knee boots at Celine to fuzzy pumps at Off-White. Once the temperatures really dip, give your favorite pair of UGG boots a break and try one of the styles, below.ADVERTISEMENT – CONTINUE READING BELOW
Intricate embroidery evokes images of vintage jewelry boxes and heavy gowns like Blake Lively’s Met Gala look. But it’s also totally wearable. Michael Kors’ spring ’19 show featured everyday embroidered pieces, like this pair of pink platform sandals. The design marries artistry to fashion for a totally one-of-a-kind shoe. This season you’ll also be seeing the detailing on boots and mules.
Chunky Clogs shoe trends
Old school wooden platforms are back in style thanks to a few luxe updates, like structured leather and shiny studs (see: the Salvatore Ferragamo number below). Rock your clogs with a denim-on-denim ensemble and a puffer coat or underneath a maxi dress. For those wanting to take things up a notch, wear a thick pair of wool socks with your footwear for that unequivocal fashion girl ensemble.
It’s time we all embrace the unusual, sculptural heel, available in a variety of geometric shapes you definitely knew the names of in elementary school. The innovative heels are basically wearable architectural feats, allowing you to incorporate a sense of wonder and drama into your work or party outfits. Keep your look simple with jeans and a t-shirt, letting the footwear captivate onlookers.
Sneakers have become a permanent fixture in runway collections, so don’t expect dad sneakers to completely disappear any time soon. Style with a tie-dye top or a rugby-shirt dress for the ultimate color clash–approved combo. This is one comfortable trend my feet are thankful for.
Monse’s entire spring ’19 collection gave a nod to the seaside, and it seems other designers had similar ideas, releasing woven footwear. Nautical details popped up on the models’ feet at shows like Milly and Ulla Johnson, paired with flowing dresses and skirts. In an instant, we were all thinking of booking vacations to the Caribbean or the French Riviera. Luckily, you don’t have to wait until next season to get your hands on a pair of rope sandals. Pick a pair below to pack with you for your next vacation.
Feathered heels and flats dominated the spring runways, from Valentino (above) to Prabal Gurung and Simone Rocha. The feathers fluttered down the catwalk and, in a second, stole the spotlight from the rest of the outfit. There isn’t just one spot designers are incorporating plumage, some added feathers to the heel of their footwear while others lined it on the straps. All look amazing.
You need a pair of thin, strappy heels or flats STAT. This minimalist style popped up on the runways of Jacquemus and Rejina Pyo last year and retailers now offer a variety of styles. You’ll find brands like Zara and BY FAR making the most elegant barely-there sandals that are perfect for the office or weddings. You do have to buy and try different styles to find the most comfy pair for you, but it’s worth it. I personally prefer a style with kitten heels, worn with socks to make it wintertime appropriate.ADVERTISEMENT – CONTINUE READING BELOW
Buckles shoe trends
You’re about to see buckles on flats and stilettos, adding edge to traditionally more feminine footwear. Alexander McQueen sent a shoe down the runway with three buckles, while Sies Marjan pushed the envelope with four rugged straps. If you’re not ready to have your feet completely caged in, there are simpler, single-buckle options out there. Pro-tip: If you choose shoes with multiple buckles, give yourself a few extra minutes in the mornings to put them on.
