Winter is around the corner and we have to think about footwear for this snowy season. Couturiers have determined the hot trends of this winter already and we can start looking for a pair or two that will save us from winter cold.
Choosing designer footwear is always a complicated thing. When we see collections on the runways we usually consider the models to be too vulgar, radical, exquisite, brutal, glamorous, etc. It often seems to us that while creating lines designers were reflecting about everything but not an ordinary woman who has to lead a hectic life.
But when we look closer we see that this trapeze skirt can go well with high-stiletto shoes or that coat may be very well accessorized with a pair of ankle boots.
This way we realize that extremely high heels, huge platforms or even a weird structure instead the first and the second can be quite acceptable for every day wear. And we should just have a close look to select something that really matches our own style.
First of all we have to decide what we prefer: heels or a platform.
Let’s start from heels.
The trendy heel for winter 2009 is a very high and thin stiletto. It must be at least 4 inches long and as thin as it can be.
Metal stilettos which were so popular last season this time have been removed from a woman’s of fashion wardrobe. They are believed to be too brutal for a stylish girl.
Though taking into consideration the parameters of a stiletto, metal seems to be the sturdiest and most logical.
Besides high stilettos kitten heels, which were in Vogue in 1940s, are a good choice as well but they have been modernized and become a bit higher. This type of shoe looks perfectly elegant.
This season high boots, jackboots and even ankle boots have high heels.
But if you are horrified by the idea of wearing a 4-inch stiletto or a kitten heel, couturiers suggested an alternative to us – the same 4-inches but the heel is a bit thicker in diameter.
As a result we have got a shoe with a very thick voluminous steady heel that resembles us the one of 1970s.
Another trend of this season is a high thick heel covered in the same fabric as the shoe itself. It can be colourful or patent-leather and suede.
However, high stiletto alone was not enough for designers in this season. They have increased the height of the heel and added a platform to the shoe.
By the way, besides everything mentioned above, a lot of platform shoes and boots are of bright colours even if they are made of very expensive materials.
And this is the influence of the ‘70s again.
The hottest trend for winter 2009 is a wedge heel. The most amazing thing about it is that wedge heel exposes heel and platform silhouettes.
So, high heels and wedges are the topical items of this season. All you have to do now is to select a pair that corresponds your own peculiar style!
