The kitten heel is making a comeback. Phillip Lim’s Fall ’17 kitten-heel booties continue a Spring ’17 kitten revival. Stella McCartney signaled her approval with kittenish ankle-straps. Dior followed up with dainty slingbacks. Never fear if you flash back to the image of a 1960s airline hostess when you see the style. You can update your mule wardrobe or pull on your sock sneakers. There are other top shoe trends for the season, and we have them for you.
Designers from Balenciaga to Gucci are on board with this playful yet controversial retro touch. Love ‘em and you can find them on shoes ranging from boots, flats, and even mules. Don’t love ‘em yet? Try a combat boot.
The style still has edge, and designers such as Prada, Altuzarra and The Row are giving us some updated options. Retire your Dr. Martens. Try a Prada pair with shearling lining for warmth and comfort.
Put a Sock on It
The fitted boot or sneaker is distinguished from all those other boots by its snug fit and long shaft height. Soft leather or fabric at the top of this shoe wraps around your ankles.
Sparkle, Sparkle Little Shoe
Glitter and sparkle caught the eye and bedazzled flats, sneakers and even sandals on the Saint Laurent Fall ’17 runway. Boots, too.
Hot Red Is Cool
Freshen up your Fall wardrobe with a sizzle of bold red. The color is cool for both boots and flats.
The luxe feel of velvet and the embellishment of pearls brings texture to mules and boots.
Stubborn as Mules
Mules aren’t going away any time soon. They’re not just your plain Jane slip-ons this season. Designers decided to up their Fall game with a variety of prints, colors, and textures. Zara offers a Furry Mule and 3.1 Phillip Lim pulls out all the stops with all-pink shearling.
