Fall is just around the corner, and with the exciting new opening of DSW in Victoria this week, Victoria Buzz took the opportunity to speak to Director of Public Relations at Town Shoes Limited, and self-confessed shoeholic, Crissi Giamos, about what shoe fashion trends to look out for this season!
This fall is all about boots – ankle boots, all-weather boots, fringed boots, motorcycle boots, anything with details such as studs and buckles. Definitely a must-have for every shoe lover this season!
Grey is THE fashion color for footwear this fall. Seen on all international runways, it is the new neutral. Wear it with anything where you would wear black or tan. Wear head-to-toe grey or use it to “pop” your outfit. As you transition into fall, throw on a little grey bootie with your pastel outfit, à la Prada.
Animal prints have been around for so long that they are not even a trend anymore. They are now part of our staple shoe wardrobe. It’s like having a black shoe – just wear leopard with anything! Don’t be afraid to mix prints with leopard, it will make your outfit more exciting!
Men’s inspired footwear
Borrow from the boys! These are practically the replacement for the ballet slipper. We all love the ballet slipper, we keep it in our bag for the commuter ride, but these brogue details add more fun. The best time to wear it, for a little shock reaction, contradict it with a pretty little girly dress. These also go fantastically with the season’s culottes.
The shoetie is a hybrid between and ankle boot and a high or low-heel shoe. Sometimes you just wake up, you don’t know what to wear, “Do I wanna wear a shoe? Or do I wanna wear a bootie?” It gives attitude to any outfit you wear! You can have peep-toe shoeties, lacy details, add some suede, mix it with leather. The shoetie is always an awesome answer when you don’t know what to wear on your feet!
All shoes available at DSW Victoria.
