Fashionistas may be at the peak of joy because designers and stylists have set the fall-winter 2016-2017 fashion trends introducing many ideas, textures and prints so that we can easily choose the right pair of boots.
Indeed, there are many options, and most of them are really practical and suitable to be worn daily.
Although Balmain, Fendi, Balenciaga and other brands have tried to make the stiletto heels dominant in their collections, pragmatic designers opted for boots with a firm and stable heel. Its height does not exceed 7-9 cm, and the thickness must be larger without making the leg look vulgar and too sophisticated.
Examples of massive ‘correct’ heels can be found in the collections of Emilio Pucci, Hermès, Erdem, Marc Jacobs.
Although wedges give positions, it will be basically completely surreal to get them out of fashion. There will always be ladies who want to be at height without running in the snow or rain wearing heels.
Some designers gave boots a touch of weirdness. Such fantastic platforms can be found in the collections of Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Vera Wang.
Kitten Heeled Boots
Comfort is the basic rule of the fall-winter 2016-2017 season. Therefore, when choosing a pair of boots, we recommend drawing attention to heel’s height. Marni and Kenzo decided to ease our life to the fullest presenting small heeled boots or boots with kitten heels.
Incredibly comfortable and practical, such designs look as stylish as boots with high heels.
Some designers advise us not to give up high heels even in fall, replacing the awkward heel with a stable platform, feminine and refined, completely different from previous seasons. It has become finer and is present not only in masculine boots, but on classic women boots.
Stocking Boots and Over the Knee Boots
In 2016-2017 season sexuality is what counts. Many fashion houses have tried to make outfits more appealing using tight-fitting clothing. Boots over the knee and stockings boots are ideal for this purpose. The best ideas can be traced at Altuzzara, Balmain, Fendi.
In the new season, stocking boots and over the knee boots became higher, far above the mid-thigh. Some designs are decorated with frills and jabots, making them look even more seductive. So, this footwear can successfully pass from the catwalk directly in everyday life.
Besides classic leather and suede, among the most popular materials can be listed boots made of leather that mimics the skin of reptiles. And if Givenchy and Dries Van Noten chose shades characteristic of natural colors reptiles, then Roberto Cavalli and Rodarte have used all sorts of color combinations.
Reptile color has not only the top of the boot, but also the heel and designers urges us not to be afraid to show this “predator” as possible in autumn.
Chanel and Kenzo decided to add classical decisions some craziness and extravagancy combining materials opposite by texture, hue and thickness: leather and tweed, textile and plastic, etc. Such boots designs can become a key element of a look.
The 2016-2017 fall-winter season introduces a new trend, namely velvet footwear. The fabric of kings, the symbol of luxury and triumph was used not only to decorate the upper part of the boot, but the heel or platform, which being made entirely of velvet, looks absolutely wonderful.
Although autumn-winter season is characterized by traditional black and brown boots, in the 2016-2017 season, many designers have decided to play with metal shine. The effect of metal foil or parchment, metallic leather with reptile skin texture, like velvet, became the most fashionable textures of the season.
On the background of black boots, metalized boots from Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Maison Margiela look incredibly unusual and beautiful.
The basic idea of the 2016-2017 fall-winter season is that boots have to be feminine, comfortable and seductive to the fullest. The exotic is welcome as well, but aggressiveness is totally lacking among fashion decision.
