Up Your Shoe Game!
February 17, 2020
It’s a new month, new day, that means I’m back with another trend alert for you to be all over! There is nothing I obsess over more than SHOES; oh and accessories. They just add that final touch you need to slay any look. The real question is, how can you not obsess over it and still get it right!? I have all of the deets to help you up your 2019 Fall / Winter shoe game.
First on my list are boots for the fall; more specifically is the Combat Boot. Honestly, the combat will be a forever go to for me. The great thing about the combat boot is that it can be styled in multiple ways. You can keep it casual and sleek with a cute skirt or dress. Or if you wanna be a rebel without a cause, style the boots with ripped jeans or cut off shorts and over the knee socks but make sure to wear it with a lace peasant shirt because the trend for this season is to pair an ultra feminine look with this 90’s grunge staple.
The second trend focus is the Over the knee boots. It’s sexy, it’s contemporary, and this style is going to catch a lot of envy. The slouchy style can be styled with fitted bottoms, a light weight sweater, and an overcoat. Layered over fitted legs KEY. The boots act as a statement necklace or oversized jewelry. Don’t over accessorize with this shoe. Also, 70’s style over the knee boots in patchwork and crocodile skin are also making an appearance too. Simplistic, yet can be extremely versatile when it comes to styling. I am all for layering when it comes to the 70’s style. Hear me out, circle skirt, leggings, layered under a knit sweater. The next trend I saw with the over the knee boots, is a white boot moment. It’s driving me crazy because I’ve been searching high and low for this style of boot to wear with an all-black look of mine! The white just adds the cherry on top. Let’s say you have a printed dress, the white boot will break up the contrast. I don’t see this look going wrong for any occasion.
The next trend poppin’ is the heel n’ sock combo. Words just cannot express how much I am in L.O.V.E. with this trend! Like, I just can’t get away from how adorable this combination is! I have tried this style with a sporty look; which was a little challenging to create effortlessly. However, the key is to let the heel n’ sock combo truly work back to the overall outfit. They should NOT BE the outfit. So pair a Japanese bomber jacket with leather shorts, striped stocks and a stylish peep toe wedge. Also consider playing around with the dainty, soft look too. Keep the look playful with a slip dress, sheer knee high socks and pointed toe strapy heels. BOOM!
Last but not least is the chunky sneaks trend and I’m with this trend ALL. THE. WAY!. I love the bulky look styled with a super urban or boho look. You can create a contemporary look with the chunky sneak paired with an uber sleek urban utilitarian outfit where the sneeks are the IT accessory. The tech wear style has become more popular over the past few years. Something about the transition from a super sleek minimalist outfit down to a chunky multicolor sneek makes me go wild. I really think the chunky sneaker gives this look more dimension.
