Booties and Ankle Boots Fall-Winter 2016-2017
Booties are a type of highly demanded footwear among modern women. Each year, they are becoming more popular because it can survive great with virtually any fashion garment. Therefore, let’s see what are the booties trends for fall-winter 2016-2017 season.
Massive heels and platforms
If previously ankle boots have to be with tall and very thin stilettos, then modern fashion has introduced some changes in this rule. It is known that the footwear collections are currently crammed with massive heels and platforms, which also can be seen at ankle boots. Also it is observed that designers tend to give up a little on very sexy and refined outfits, offering more brutal and masculine looks. For example, Marc Jacobs and Maison Margiela propose to wear ankle boots with massive heels over thick thighs and socks, while Dolce & Gabbana has decorated its designs with metal rivets.
Contrasting side inserts are very famous cut elements, they used in the new cold season by known brands such as Ralph Lauren and Versace. Moreover, such inserts must necessarily differ from the rest of the footwear either by material or by color.
The pointed toe is able to confer any footwear a certain charm and elegance. And if you like sober and refined looks, then this option is for you. Ankle boots with pointed toe may be supplemented by laces (Derek Lam) or miniature straps (Bottega Veneta).
Ankle boots with frills
Frills are modern elements of footwear decoration. However, it is known that fashion does not stand still. Designers are increasingly urging us not to stop at the classical methods of decoration, making experiments on various garments. Due to such artistic growth, nice and romantic frills can now be found on footwear. We must say that in this case they look as harmonious as on skirts and dresses (examples can serve the fashion presentations from Rodarte and Fendi).
Laced Ankle Boots
Laced footwear are again in the top of footwear fashion trends. Shoelaces can be found both on highboots and shoes, as well as on booties. Sometimes shoelaces are found only as decoration. Very often laced ankle boots are complemented by some type of accessories like bows, straps, zippers, etc.
Ankle boots with tread
This is the novelty in the fashion world: association of brutality with femininity, comfort and practicability and style. What woman does not dream of a pair of comfortable and beautiful footwear? However, we all know how hard it is to find such a pair that would satisfy all requirements simultaneously. In help comes the tread, which makes footwear extremely comfortable without depriving a woman of feminine rights thereof, to be beautiful and stylish. How was fitted the tread, show us Maison Margiela, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton.
The most wanted decorative elements are: tassels (Burberry, Dries Van Noten), metallic gasket and floral applications (Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana), decorative zippers and straps (Boss, Ralph Lauren), rhinestones, etc. If some designers have used the methods listed above, then others used the original line-cutting. For example, Narciso Rodriguez presented booties with pointed toe and deep cutouts. Brands have tried to use any method to give their items originality and style.
