Our iCals may say April, but our sartorial minds are already thinking fall. Yes, we adore summer as much as the next girl (c’mon, we’re not crazy cold-worshipers), but the F/W 15 trends were just too good to not want to wear now—especially the fanciful footwear. Right? While we don’t have magical fashion powers to speed up production (we’re working on it), with a little shopping finesse, it’s easy to step into the trends that won’t officially be out until August.
Scroll below to check out seven of the best shoe trends from the fall runways and find out how to get the look now. Go on, get a leg, er, foot, up in the style department before everyone else does.
Before your mind goes to those styles of Lucite platforms, know that the see-through detail is actually surprisingly chic—especially as an accent to a pair of booties.
Designers including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Altuzarra, and Rebecca Minkoff got kinky this season, wrapping feet in bondage-like straps. While they may look like pain, promise they’re not.
Zara High Heel Strappy Slingback Sandals ($80)
Imagine these paired with an all-black outfit. On. Point.
Loeffler Randall Thea Gladiator Sandals ($375)
There's nothing black and white about these.
It’s impossible to walk into a store these days and not spot fringe. Well, the ‘70s-esque trim isn’t going anywhere come fall. But rather than hanging out on jackets and skirts, it’s making its way down to your ankles instead.
Topshop Muskat Fringe Suede Ankle Boots ($150)
Pair these with culottes or shorts so you don't overheat.
Can’t decide what colour shoe to wear on a particular day? Let your footwear decide for you with a colour-blocked pattern. (P.S. We can’t get enough of these stunning Carven beauties—are you with us?)
This plush fabric isn’t just reserved for the holidays anymore. Give your outfit an instant luxury boost with velvet in all shades.
Isabel Marant Amelia Wrap Velvet Leather Heels ($406)
The chunky heel makes these semi-comfortable to walk in.
Nicholas Kirkwood Iris Embroidered-Face Velvet Flats ($398)
Love this quirky accent!
Give your stilettos a break and follow Alexander Wang’s lead by slipping into creepers to take your outfit to new heights.
Fancy feet! Follow Dolce & Gabanna's lead and kick it in jewels and sparkly accents. The perfect finishing touch.
Dune Joni Square Toe Embellished Flat Sandals ($135)
Dressy enough for a party, but casual enough for Saturday afternoon, too.
Sophia Webster Amanda Embellished Satin Sandals ($595)
Stand tall and show everyone who's boss.
