The season’s must-haves

With autumn fast approaching, it’s time to zoom in on shoe shopping for the next season. Even if it is still warm enough to be wearing sandals and open shoes, let’s take a look at the footwear for the coming months.

Here you have some trends worth following.

Skinny heel
Stiletto décolleté shoes are a classic that has never gone out of fashion. For autumn 2016 this very elegant and daring model comes with a skinny heel. The thin heel is what makes the difference in Sergio Rossi‘s ankle boot too. In any case, the sensual effect is guaranteed by an irresistible interplay of balancing forces.

Suede boots
Once again the boots will play a central role in 2016, especially the very high boots, up to the knee and beyond. Even the heel is very high, though robust. The novelty lies in the materials, whether it deals with shiny paint or suede in the neutral shades of sand and champagne, as is the case of Ermanno Scervino.

This is the typical summer footwear, suitable for the seaside, but, quite surprisingly, it is a season’s must-have for the autumn winter too. Crafted and decorated according to the season, it is combined with cold weather attire. As usual, the sole is  made of rope, the distinguishing feature of any espadrilles, but the materials employed by, for example, Ermanno Scervino, are leather, napa leather, fur, and velvet. No doubt, wearing espadrilles even in winter comes as a surprise.

We are talking of ballerina shoes, of course. Yet, these are ultra-flat and so soft that they do fit like a glove. And this is not all! It deals with super-decorated ballerina shoes, with appliqués, flowers and romantic details, in autumn shades. The model designed by Alberta Ferretti is romantic and formfitting.
