Fire In Your New Shoes: 2013 Style Guide
From military-inspired thigh-high boots to retro ankle strapped pumps, we have many 2013 runway trends that have put fire in our shoes and there are many more to come. Here are five of this year’s shoe trends you don’t want to miss!
Metallics: Silver-toned heels walked the 2013 runways at Dior, J.Crew and Prada. Why do we love it so much? Metallics have the ability to instantly dress up any ensemble, whether it’s denim or nightwear!
The Hologram Trend:
The reflective, futuristic holographic 90’s trend came back this year more refined than ever. From Kate Moss to Rihanna, we’ve seen many of our fave fashion gurus rock this trend.
Buckled and Strapped:
Whether it’s thigh-high strapped sandals or flat booties, shoes are embellished with military inspired buckles and straps this year. From Jimmy Choo to Alexander Wang, these beauties can be cat-walked on the runway or in street style.
Probably the trendiest style of the year! Whether it’s flats or stilettos, ankle straps have been incorporated into every shoe style for the past four seasons. Dressed up or dressed down, they scream sophisticated and fierce with any ensemble.
Sleek, Thigh-High Boots:
Last year’s slouchy, roomy boot trend that created an illusion of skinnier legs is officially over. Expect sleek, straight, and knee-high this Fall season! From BCBGMaxazria to Calvin Klein, these babies have been observed on the runway in different styles including buckled, shoe-laced, tall, flat, open toe, etc.
