No winter is ever complete with the right collection of shoes, and as always, we always pick a few essentials from the fall-winter shows. With the winter setting in finally in many parts of the globe, this is just the right time to go ahead and check some of the best things from fall-winter 2015 fashion weeks. In this post, let’s focus on shoes with trends and ideas that definitely ring a bell.
Furry, furry all the way: Fur is easily one of the most frequented materials for winter 2015, and it is pretty much in sync with the season. If you are not fond of fur for obvious animal concerns, there are quite a good number of faux options around, so you are likely to find something for sure. Fur has featured in many designer shoes, and what's unique is the ways that the top fashion houses have interpreted the material. From complete fur to more unique designs, there were new things to check at Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Maison Margiela and Gucci to name a few.
Bondage and hugging: These are basically two different trends, but let’s talk of as they do deserve a mention. The first one is bondage, which seems to be straight up from 50 shades of Grey, and the idea reflected in many shows, where the focus was on creating unique tied designs and beyond. Frankly, if you are looking for edgy ideas, this might well be a good idea to replace the boots for winter, and for ideas, you can check Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci and Vionnet. When it comes to boots alone, exceptional options emerged in hugging leather and beyond. This is great for anyone who wants to find more form-revealing shoes, and designs to check include Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen and Alberta Ferretti.
A hint of fringe: Fringe is also yet another detailing that has translated from one fashion to another effortlessly. Starting off with clothing and handbags to shoes and beyond, this is one idea that seemed to make sense with every other designer. Top fashion houses like Burberry Prorsum and Proenza Schouler went ahead with complete fringe, and there were others like Rebecca Minkoff and Ralph Lauren showed how little fringe can do wonders.

Quirky heels: One should mention the quirky unique heels that made a clear statement for the season. For winters, these high heeled exceptional designer shoes are like that one investment that you probably will not regret. Steal some of the best designs from one of the stores of Christian Dior, Simone Rocha and Monique Lhuillier. The good thing is there is plenty of variety out there, so you will not have any issues whatsoever finding something that you really appreciate and like. For the girls, who love designer and top fashion stuff, this is like a must-follow trend.
The cut-out booties: Yes, the boots for fall and winter 2015 went for a complete makeover, and we have these cut-out designs that make an instant impact. If you love unique designs and want to change the ankle and knee-high boots to something different for a change, this can well be the right idea to go for. Some designers who can give you a few good ideas include Elie Saab, Julien Macdonald and Nicole Miller. The concept probably is to bring some kind of interest in winter boots with effective changes, and these cut-out designs are pretty much lovable.
Ornate it well: Not many women are fold of embellished shoes, especially for the winter, but this is among the few trends that are instantly catchable. In fact, most people will recognize a nice pair of shoes that has an accenting feature. There are many designers who played with both ornate designs and overdone detailing, and the look is more than awesome. If you like your share of bling, this is what you need, and for a few ideas, you can check collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta and Moschino. A special mention must be made for a stunning pair in yellow/mustard shade with big oversized embellishment, as seen at Céline.
More tones: When it comes to colours, fall shades are known to be mute for most years, but not this time around. Many designers have opted for not one but many colours and shades for the season, in a colour blocking style, and all of it makes so much sense, given that the choices are not limited anymore. Colour-block designs have the effect and plus side of working with many outfits and are more of the practical things that you can own even in the spring, especially the designs in ankle length varieties. Some of the designs that you would love to see includes Prabal Gurung, Peter Pilotto and Jil Sander.
Final ideas: Fall and winter offers unique choices in shoes, and depending on the occasion and need of the outfit, you can choose between colours, shades and prints. The good thing is fall brings a great balance between boots and shoes, so you can pick anything for a pair of block heels to a classic pair of stilettos and beyond. The best thing is to go for a balance, where you can get certain classics with some innovative trendy ones that make for a great experimental outing. With a new trendy pair of shoes, you can change your actual style statement in the most amazing way, and that itself is a reason to get started with shopping now. Don’t miss on looking at designer stuff too, which are often worth investing, especially when what you wear regularly counts like a statement for people around you!
