Our favourite Instagram ‘It-girls’ have been posting their footwear cravings lately, giving us a glimpse into the shoes of the season. Here are the top three trends taking over social media, street style – and our hearts.
1. Show-stopping red
We’re definitely not shying away from brights this season. For a colourful transition from summer to autumn, red is the ultimate game changer. The ’90s wave that came across fashion has left us obsessing over eclectic elements.
An easy way to style a pair of red shoes is to pair them with wardrobe basics like black jeans, a puffer jacket or even mom jeans.
2. The sock boot
When Balenciaga introduced this eye-catching boot in their autumn ’17 collection, our jaws dropped. We were so used to the conventional, easy-to-wear sock boot by Yeezy, that the Balenciaga pair was refreshing. Fearlessness is key if you’re going to make this shoe work. If you’re a minimalist, try wearing the long sock boot with an oversized T-shirt, cinched at the waist with a belt, with a denim jacket thrown over your shoulders.
For a maximalist, the floral quarter-sock boot is perfect paired with dark-navy-wash jeans, a white shirt and a boxy leather jacket.
3. White shoes
White shoes are the new must-have. No one ever thought they’d be a thing, but now white shoes or booties can effortlessly make you look like fashion editor Shiona Turini or fashion writer Eva Chen.
These white stunners look amazing worn with pencil skirts, a long dress under a jersey, or even with culottes.
