Shoe trends for Fall 2019 offer a trip back to the future with a resurgence of classic Mary Janes and late ‘90s chunky platforms. Designers, however, deliver a twist on the old favorites with sky-high stiletto heels on Mary Janes and statement platform heels on mule slides. Winter florals are fresh, but the newest trend may be shoes turning up in shades of green. Shearling shoes will keep you warm, and ankle ties will show off your ankles. Keep reading for the footwear trends you’ll want to stock up on this Fall and Winter.
Florals aren’t just for girly summer fashions. Cooler weather sees designers turning to darker, moodier floral prints that match the drama of the Fall and Winter season. Gucci Jordaan created slick satin loafers, Altuzarra Davidson opted for sweet silk mules and Dr. Martens surprised with a Pascal Wanderlust Boot crafted in black floral print. The unexpected adds spice to your shoe wardrobe.
Ankles wrapped in full ribbons and grosgrain materials are the ultimate in delicate femininity. Big bows take heels to new heights as shown in Proenza Schouler’s tie strap sandals and Zara’s polka dot sandals. Multiple wrap ties give tried-and-true flats a fresh look. Consider 8 by Yoox ballet flats and The Row Coco kitten-heel ankle-tie mules. The accent is very ooh la la!
The color that is quickly taking over Instagram and the street style scene looks fresh for Fall and Winter accessories and especially in shoes. Pistachio rules along with seafoam, mint, hunter, and Kelly. Look to Erdem for a saturated silk. Sally LaPointe’s suede was a classic and Brandon Maxwell’s velvet pump was elegant. Find yours in a Birdie the Heron flat, Acne Studios Chelsea boot. Again combine trends with the Jimmy Choo crocodile-effect Ester flat.
Chunky platforms are back again to help you stand tall on the Fall fashion stage. If you don’t have any in the back of your closet from the late ‘90s and early 2000s, catch the wave now with leopard prints from TopShop, slides from Gianni Plateau or Mary Jane pumps from Miu Miu.
Mary Janes are a little more down to earth in elegant pointed-toe flats from Tabitha Simmons, Kate Spade, and Prada’s patent leather. Childhood never saw the stiletto styles from the runways of Paco Rabanne and Michael Kors, but you’re a big girl now and you can flaunt them. Mary Janes hint at youth with a grownup flare.
Scale the fashion heights on shearling footwear. Warm your heart with the Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh shaggy zip tie pumps and keep your toes toasty with cozy shearling sneakers by Tretorn or Golden Goose. Think 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Maia slipper for ultra bedtime luxury. Sherpas got nothing on you!
Neutral Croc and Animal Prints
Exotic crocodile embossing takes ballet flats and thigh-high boots to the next level of a haute couture look. Neutral browns and tans warm up your style and spice up your Winter wardrobe. Combine trends with the Marc Fisher ankle strap sandal, ASOS ballet flat with an ankle strap or Jeffrey Campbell Kari point-toe pumps with a chunky heel.
