Trendy Boots Fall-Winter 2016-2017
Boots are a type of practical and very stylish footwear, which enjoys a crazy popularity especially during the cold season. Each year, designers are working hard on its collections of footwear, putting at our disposal all latest boots designs. It’s time to find out what boots will be considered fashionable in 2016-2017 autumn-winter season.
The new cold season again proved to be very loyal in terms of choosing the length of fashionable boots. If you like shorter options, so-called booties, you can wear without problem your favorite pair of footwear. In addition, if you find that it is not warm enough, you have to wear your booties over a thick sock (3.1 Phillip Lim).
Alexander Wang and Dolce & Gabbana also opted for short designs, only that in their collections such footwear reminds us more of rubber boots in military style.
If you like unusual materials, then we recommend drawing attention to Dries Van Noten and Altuzarra designs – these brands have used painted suede and textured leather in designing their collections.
A real hit of the season became over the knee boots and stocking boots the length of which can even reach the thighs line. These designs are perfect for owners of truly long sensual and slender legs. Such options look ideal with long dresses with slits, as well as with short tunics. Innovative tricks are not missing either. For example, Christian Siriano proposes stocking boots in yellow python leather, while Fendi decorated its creations with leather frills.
And of course, the classic style could not miss any collection. It is about the boots, the length of which varies from calf line to the middle of the knee. This traditional and universal length fits virtually any type of clothing. These boots are ideal for a cheerful and noisy party, as well as for a business meeting.
Speaking of fashionable length, we have already said something about current materials. Besides the classic leather, brands propose us to wear patent leather (Louis Vuitton), suede and nubuck (Marni, Haider Ackermann, Derek Lam etc.).
Many brands have included boots and booties in faux reptile skin. Moreover, the color can be absolutely different – both traditional reptile leather, as well as bright and original improvisations will be absolutely fashionable. However, choosing such footwear you must not forget that it looks pretty strident and imposing. If you have a pair of boots made of faux reptile skin, then do not have to wear other details. For example, the red reptile skin will combine ideally with denim or white classic pants (Erdem, Chloe).
Very unusual designs can be found in the collections of Roberto Cavalli and Givenchy. In these brands lines can be seen python skin in the blue color and original conical heels that look ideal on the background of reddish cobra skin.
Jeremy Scott has delighted the fans with rubber boots: in their collections can be found wonderful rubber items, bright and with prints that will make fashionistas feel safe even in rain. In addition, these boots are not only practical but also very stylish. Wearing them you will feel in the spotlight.
Diane von Furstenberg and Reem Acra set in motion their creativity and their lines presented boots with intricate perforations, cutouts and mesh. It’s hard to say whether such designs will appeal to all fashionistas, but for sure will delight extravagant ladies.
Monochromatic prevail here again. That means we can buy white and black boots. These colors do not have rivals and it seems that the situation remains unchanged from now on. Veronique Leroy, Derek Lam and other brands urges us to wear boots on black and white.
However, black and white colors appear dull, nobody will forbid you to play with colors. On the contrary, you will be encouraged to do this. For example, Jeremy Scott and Lacoste urge us to wear blue boots, Schouler and Chloe – yellow and brown, Emilio Pucci – striped red and blue.
Balenciaga, Altuzarra and Erdem went even further. They seemed to have completely forgotten that they have created collections for autumn-winter season. In these lines can be found designs of flowered boots. Such boots are recommended to wear in the same shade with dresses and long coats.
Sole and Heel
If sometimes you follow the fashion trends, then for sure you know that in recent seasons, designers are being swept along by the original heels. Designers have done with them a lot of experiments and tried carious heel shape. The new cold season is outstanding through the impressive amount of extravagant and unusual heels. For example, Dries Van Noten decorated the heels with beads of pearls and Boss with stylish inserts in wood shade. Haider Ackermann and Balenciaga propose us high curved stilettos, while Marc Jacobs and Maison Margiela – massive and thick heels with platforms. Unusual soles can be observed in Vera Wang collections which contain high platforms completed by thin and not very tall heels.
Heels decoration is not the only way to bring out the boots on the background of other designs. To give that touch of originality, brands have used various tricks. Most in demand are shoelaces that have ceased to be used for practical purposes. Today, laces and braids are a modern decoration that can be used both in designing clothing and footwear. Often, shoelaces are combined with other types of original decor. For example, Proenza Schouler has decorated boots not only with sophisticated shoelaces but also with cylindrical curved heels and Prada proposes to wear high boots with laces just above the thick socks. Socks can be seen as Prada boots are cut in the heel, which is make the sock very visible.
Emilio de la Morena, Erdem, Rodarte and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini used as decoration ribbons, lace and leather frills, applications, while Giambattista Valli and Fausto Puglisi created a series of boots made of straps.
Brands have not forgotten the fringes, they’re playfully hanging on Polo Ralph Lauren boots.
In the new cold season, designers propose us again a huge choice of fashionable boots for fall-winter 2016-2017, meeting the needs and tastes of absolutely all fashionistas, which confirms that they are the best. Women just have the difficult task of choosing the favorite pair of all this diversity.
