Fall 2011 Shoe Trends for Women

Fall 2011 Shoe Trends

From what all I have gathered from the runways till now, the shoe trend for this fall is definitely – cute + utilitarian.



Top: Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, CL Bottom: CL, James Wu, Manolo Blahnik.

Snakeskin: This is one of the most visible trends for Fall 2011-2012. Balenciaga, Giorgio Armani, Chloe, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and dozen other designer labels have showcased this trend.

Satin: These are no longer your special occasions only shoes. Satin is hot this Fall and some of the biggest designers are swearing by it.



Wedged Ankle Boots: These are perfect winter boots. Say goodbye to boots with pencil heels. You can pair these with almost anything- jeans, mid length or long skirts; and because these are wedges you can happily spend full days wearing these. Ankle length boots with short skirts is a bad combination though.

Heeled Loafers: These find their place in the bigger androgynous fashion trend. All things menswear are especially hot for the winters. Heeled loafers are such a fresh take on the classic shoe. They combine the masculinity of a loafer and femininity of pumps.

Chunky Heels: Chunky heels are a very safe choice for winters. They provide us the comfort needed in winters without compromising the confidence that comes with wearing heels. Derek Lam, Fendi, Chanel and others are high on this trend.

Socks and Heels: I have written about this trend here. Rihanna was the first one to rock this trend and it has been copied since. Yes it has some catching up to do in India, but yes the idea is very ‘in’. If you want to play it safe, add on warm tights in the same colour as the socks.

  1. me love Snakeskin……..can wear with all dress :yahoo: hummm :waiting: Wedged Ankle Boots is back ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) :waiting: i have ihave :shocked: :shocked:

  2. This is just my opinion…
    I don’t really get the ‘changing your closet according to the seasons’ thing. India has only like two prominent seasons Summer time and Monsoon! (at least most of India does!) Winter, Autumn and Spring are just as hot and humid as Summer! So we can’t really change our outfits to compliment the seasons. 😐
    I buy shoes if they’re cute, comfy, and are versatile… through both seasons… :methinks:

  3. thanks everyone 🙂
    @Rukeia: i totally agree with your point. major designer labels come up with their new collections 4 times in a year for all four seasons. these collections dictate the trends that pick up slowly in the market. so if you know what was showcased in these collections, youl know whats new in the market.that precisely is the point of such articles..
