It seems that with such an ease summer has come and is already leaving us. I feel like it was just a couple of days ago that the summer breeze started to hit me up and now all of the sudden I find myself in the middle of transition and awaiting fall. With every season comes great responsibility to follow up on the latest trends (that is for us the fashion lovers). So I owned up to what I should do and started to do some research on shoe trends and what I’m looking forward to this upcoming fall/winter. I found myself loving two very different & yet very exciting groups which I very lovingly named Gold Rush & Pop of Sexy.
Black & gold represent glam in all its expression. Its infinite power of looking so impacting every time it hits the retail stores shelves is amazing. We all know black goes with everything and we should all also know that gold is the most amazing metallic color to ever exist. Come together we have the perfect combination which will never look old or so yesterday. From platform pumps to beautiful wedges we have very detailed styles that bring out the sexy and feminine side of us. Dare to dream & feel like a hot trendy blogger and a Hollywood pinup hottie at the same time with these styles I picked out to represent this trend.
Then again black may seem boring to some adventurous, fashion-savvy consumers and they might be expecting something different for fall. Well guess what? I have just what you want; its time to mix and match seasons and bring some color to the old fashioned fall/winter pallete. Here comes pop of sexy. From full on red wedges to color blocking Mary Jane’s & sky high stilettos we have a mix of berry colors that will leave you breathless and give you that extra push every day so days aren’t so cold during this season. Why didn’t anybody think of this? Imagine bright orange and pink stilettos on October 29th. Take my word on it, you will feel alive.
In the past years we’ve seen celebrities like Lady Gaga, Kesha, Katy Perry among others sport mind blowing, out of proportion fashion statements. I guess they are allowed since most of they’re outfits (except for Gaga) are meant for stage, red carpets or amusement of the fans. It is very unusual that these ensembles hit the mass market and become part of the day to day style that most of the people have. Every once in a while we get that lucky one that hits a home run and let’s just say is out of the park for everyone else to see or in this case use.
The no heel platform has come to stay. You either love it or you hate it (I’m choosing love). Different variations of the style have been adopted by designers from gothic rocker to feminine, all of them fashion-forward of course. Lady Gaga was the first seen in these impossible to walk shoes; it was like the fashion circus. But then again she dresses to impress literally. Her choices were too high, too out there and too of everything. The idea was set in stone but executed only for a performer not for us the fashion consumers that will do anything for that one special piece.
Designers took the task to tone down the extravagant style but without taking out its essence. It is a risky look but it can be so fun if you try it. Push yourself not to be as everyone else, new is so good especially when it comes to a pair of shoes. You can go for a clean look or a spike rocker style that only a celebrity could pull off. The thing is you don’t need to be a celebrity to pull it off you just need the love for fashion and a little bit of attitude.
Fashion is known for reinventing itself over and over again. Nothing is new come to think of it; there is always inspiration from another era. We copy fads and statements from different centuries repeating ourselves and believing we are pioneers on a trend when actually probably your grand-grand-grand-mother used to rock that back in her time. That goes to for recreating a simple ensemble or piece into a fashionable item.
Sneakers are known to be a sporty shoe which is used to be comfortable or to perform activities like sports. It could be used in fashion especially for boys. It all began when the high tops crossed our path. First the boys started using them and all kinds of celebrities then girls started leaning into the trend and mixing it up with dresses and shorts. Although the style was and still is a great hit between young, trendy fashion savvy consumers it doesn’t have that girly look we strive for.
Comes the absolute fabulous sneaker wedge boot. To die for in every way you can analyze them. The style is fresh, fashion-forward & not as sporty as it sounds. It adds some type of coolness to whoever wears them. Celebrities all over the place are styling it up from shorts to leather pants and even maxi skirts! I mean how does it get any better? You are ultra comfortable, amazing looking and you’re still wearing wedges.
It is not an ensemble all of us can get away with. Some will not dare and others may not have a clear idea on how to wear them but one thing is for sure; everyone will love them. Checkout some ideas on how the stars are rocking theirs.
