Fall 2013 Footwear Trends
I know we are in the thick of spring and it’s difficult to even begin to think about fall footwear trends until the long summer days are behind us but I thought I would give you a slight head start to Fall and Winter footwear trends.
Back in February I was lucky enough to attend MAGIC, the World’s Largest Apparel Trade Show, where I got a glimpse into the upcoming trends. I already wrote Spring/Summer 2014 Trends and now I thought it would be fun to explore what footwear we might be buying later this year.
These trend boards we’re created by Fashion Snoops, a global trend forecasting company. Part of their role as the official trend partner of MAGIC is the creation of these informational trend galleries that are placed throughout the Sourcing Show.
Take a step down from high-heels and into the seasons top fashion flats. Smoking slippers, traditional loafers and innovative ballet flats make for a perfect assortment this fall.
The Casual Boot
The most versatile style of the season, ‘Casual Boots’ encompass every silhouette from low cut ankle bots to the classic Chelsea. Oxblood red and a deep ink blue set a moody tone for this FW 13/14 footwear category.
For 13/14 heel heights start to come down with a single-sole pumps taking center stage. Kitten heels and mid-heel heights become increasingly relevant as the color palette shifts to winter white and neutrals.
With unexpected peep-toes and open backs, high heels and boots collide forming the best of both worlds with this fresh new FW 13/14 style. Sleek and geometric details give a modern update.
The Winter Boots
From over-the-knee styles to fur lined and luxe booties get ready to brave the winter chill with these key FW 13/14 styles. Exotic skins and dark, rich palette keep these silhouettes sophisticated.
