Now that the winter is coming it is time to update your wardrobe, including buying some new footwear. There really is nothing worse than having cold and wet feet, so a good pair of boots or covered in shoes is an essential.
Back to the 80s
Every year, brings new and interesting trends, and 2017 is no exception. If you like the fashions from the 1980s, you are in luck because that is the era that has inspired many designers, this season.
Work shoe trends
If you work in an office the chances are you will be required to wear a smart pair of shoes. There are several very good options available.
Classic court shoes are a particularly good option. However, if you spend most of your day on your feet it is important to consider what impact wearing this style of shoe can have on the health of your feet. In that situation, a pair of loafers or Ballerina style shoes is likely to be a much safer option. Fortunately, there are plenty of nice-looking versions of both of these classic shoe styles available.
Loafers and Ballerina style shoes are also a good option for wearing with jeans or your favorite skirt, at the weekends. They are very comfortable, and the way they are styled means that they also look good when worn with other styles of trousers. If you like wearing leggings opt for Ballerina style shoes or trainers instead. These styles of footwear look much better with skin tight trousers or leggings than other shoes do.
During the winter months boots are a must have. They are the best way to keep your feet warm and dry, especially if you live somewhere where snow is normal.
Right now, there are a lot of ankle boots in the stores. Most feature either a low or Cuban heel, which means that they look good with both casual and formal clothes.
If you like wearing skirts a pair of mid-thigh boots is probably the better option. This year the majority of footwear manufacturers are producing long boots that hug the leg closely. These are extremely comfortable, especially if you have to do a lot of walking because they offer such a good level of support.
For parties and nights out longer boots are available. Mid-thigh boots are not for everyone, but if you have the confidence to wear them they are a great way to finish off a party outfit.
The other exciting trend is disco boots. It has taken a while for this style of boots to reach the mall, but they are now widely available. These striking, sparkly, boots are surprisingly affordable, so are very likely to prove popular.
