Fun floral prints, bursts of color and luxe materials all feature in footwear, accessories and ready-to-wear pieces. Fashion aficionados will have the freedom to update their wardrobe by choosing a few key pieces—without feeling the need to overhaul their entire wardrobe.
Nichole Duck, buyer of shoe retailer Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, shares her list of essentials for updating an outfit, ensuring it is on trend and prepared for cooler weather.
Women’s blouse with a classic feminine touch that’s fresh, fun and flirty, with updated features such as oversized ruffles, bell sleeves and a lovely one-shouldered design.
Try an off-the-shoulder top with your favourite vintage frayed jeans and neutral over-the-knee boots. Sky high boots are trending in a big way.
Navy as Neutral:
While shades of black and brown are still a much-needed staple in every woman’s wardrobe, other popular colours are boldly challenging the traditional neutral color palette.
Brown and navy has at all times been a popular color combination. For added warmth on chilly days, consider a pair of camel-colored boots with a slick profile to emphasize a pencil skirt or navy shirt dress.
Versatile Prints and Embellishments:
Fresh flower arrangements may not come to mind for the first time this year. However, today’s clothing offerings are virtually stuffed with beautiful floral patterns and designs.
Other embellishments, such as lace, embroidery and colourful accents that sparkle and shine, even in daylight, will stand out in the finishing details to enhance any outfit for many occasions. Try a pair of hole-cut booties with stacked heels to complete the look.
Designs cut from this rich fabric will be seen in a wide range of charming jewel hues. Decadent fabrics can be teamed with other popular items, such as a pleated gold skirt, sheer fabrics, and a chic pair of mules-like footwear with a hint of sheen.
Big Booties Moment:
While more casual-inspired footwear is certainly still on trend, Duck says it is time to make room in the closet for more booties, particularly since they feature an endless variety of features. Think lace details or perforated patterns – heel height and toe shape.
