If you’ve spent the weekend sauntering the sidewalks in your favourite flat sandals, you may be waiting for a change in footwear trends. Luckily, the arrival of Fall 2017 offers a perfect opportunity to slip into a new pair of shoes. As a sharp contrast from the season’s low key leather gladiators and strappy heels, watch out for glittery boots this autumn. Drawing their cues from the decade of disco and the wild 1980s, sparkly boots are set to be all the rage in the season ahead. From Chanel to Saint Laurent, take a look at these examples of the trend from the Fall 2017 runways.
For anyone looking for glitz and glamour, the Chanel catwalk may be a perfect indicator of how to rock the trend. We are coveting these silver knee-high boots, which feature plenty of glitter and black capped toes. Meanwhile, the low block heels help to complete the design. To complete the look, try mastering this uniquely Chanel look and slipping into a pair of silvery, shimmering tights.
Try looking at the J.Crew runway for an example of a colourful, eye-catching way to wear the trend. These vivid blue glittery ankle boots seize attention with their vibrant colour, while the shorter length will allow your denim to stand out. Paired with distressed boyfriend jeans, a pinstriped shirt and a denim jacket with contrasting patches, these boots shine as a statement accessory.
For a more business ready take, turn to the Saint Laurent catwalk as an example. Try styling a pair of slouchy silver sequin boots with a dark navy blue or black pantsuit. The look of a plunging V-neck and a waist-cinching belt can easily complete your ensemble of the day. Whether you want to bring some shimmer to your work wardrobe or simply sparkle on a night out, this is a sophisticated fix.
