This is officially the time of the year when the weather in London is either unpredictable, unpredictably awful, or just plain depressing. While mornings still fill us with sunshine and the desire to wear strappy sandals, afternoons usually result in a cold downpour, with us only finding comfort by wearing combat boots. So, keeping in mind the summer is officially over, we have prepared a list of designer shoes that will keep your feet dry, warm and fashionable.
- Straight Leg Boots
Long boots had been dominating the market of designer shoes for the past few years, ranging from riding boots to skin-tight sock-like ones. We are glad to say the fashion world is seriously determined to keep us comfortable, and therefore the new hit of the season is straight leg boots. Great for a temperature drop and versatile styling wise, they are perfect. This style is available in classic, simple colours for the minimalist and funky patterns for those keen on experimenting. Pair them with long flowing dresses, jeans and jumper combo, a pencil skirt and a double-breasted blazer - these boots will complement every outfit.
- Kitten Heel Mules
If it’s one of those sunny days and no rain is forecasted later, your choice should land on kitten heel mules. This style is a cute addition to any outfit. The miniature heel will ensure comfortable walking and a chic feel, with an accentuated toe providing the luxe look. Available in plain and wild designs alike, these shoes can suit every style. Did we mention you cannot go wrong with them? Because honestly, you can’t.
- Ornate Heels
Have you ever thought of making a statement… With your shoes? Because now it’s a top trend on the designer shoes market and you should not miss out on it. A heel made of gold, silver or crystal - this is a new level of luxury. It may sound a bit over the top, but trust us - there’s no need to fear. A plain design with a decorative embellishment is all that’s required for the heels to make a powerful statement. There are minimalist shoes focusing on the ornate design, and there are ones that go all out. At the end of the day, the details depend on the designer’s creativity - and the choice depends on you.
- Chunky White Sneakers
Atleisure is still as popular as ever. Nothing can beat a trend that appeals to comfort, something London commuters value over anything. Chunky white sneakers are a perfect blend of luxury and leisure, and really, they suit everything. These designer shoes are inter-seasonal, too - wearing them with a slip dress looks just as chic as wearing them with a knit dress. Due to white being totally neutral, these trainers can go with any outfit palette, too. Either you choose to rock neutrals or go wild with prints and colours. Whatever your look, chunky white sneakers will elevate your outfit.
- Cowboy Boots
We’ve spoken a lot recently about the Western aesthetics being massively popular in 2019, and cowboy boots are a must-have. Daring, fashionable and durable, these boots are designed to satisfy your needs. Optional in length, they range from shin-height to ankle and we promise you won’t be able to stop wearing them. Designer boots of such style will surely complement another trend of this season: matching sets. They will also spice up the traditional jeans-and-sweater routine we’re all guilty falling into once the temperature drops.
- Square Toe Boots
One of the unexpected trends that’s taken over fashion circles this autumn is square toe boots. It’s a fresh twist on the classic footwear we never saw coming, but we are definitely loving it. Similarly to any other boots, they go perfect with everything and are available in any length. Although a new trend, we can see that this will most definitely become a timeless piece. For this reason, we strongly recommend getting a designer version of these boots: this way you will be sorted for many autumns to come and not just one season.
- Combat Boots
These just don’t go out of fashion. We keep talking about combat boots, and we will carry on because this style of designer shoes is indestructible. Stylish, comfortable and guaranteed to keep your feet dry, combat boots are a must-have for every Londoner. They complement every outfit and look whether you're going with a hyper-feminine style or a grungy twist to office attire. Whichever way you style them, not only will you be ready for the afternoon rains, but also be the coolest girl everywhere you go.
- Kitten Heel Booties
If the weather dictates the mules are to be hidden away but you love your kitten heel - don’t be sad. Kitten heel has been moved to booties, and so you don’t have to wave it goodbye until the sun is back. Similar to their counterparts for warmer days, the booties complement most outfits with their simple and subtle touch of luxe. Even the plainest jeans+sweater routine combo can look extremely chic if completed by designer kitten heel booties.
- Contrast Toe Boots
While the clothing trend this seasons suggests we wear matching sets, this goes the opposite way for shoes. When it comes to designer footwear - opposites attract. Mixed and matched shoes with either wild or more reserved colour schemes will add depth to any outfit you’re wearing. Available in every length and style (including square toe we’ve discussed above), expect seeing these shoes all over the city very soon. Black and brown, blue and white or neon pink and lavender? The possibilities are endless.
