As Marilyn Monroe is famous for saying” Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” We’ve rounded up some of the most incredible leather footwear to put you on the right path for global domination.
You can never go wrong with a bit of sparkle and shine, and metallic hues are huge this season. Gold, silver, gunmetal and bronze are staples, but rose gold, holographic and pearlescent finishes on leather shoes are popular new options for fashion forward footwear fundis. Metallic shoes come in a wide variety of styles – from sneakers to boots, and pumps to brogues.
Yeehaw! Cowboy boots aren’t just for the wild west – they’ve officially made it into timeless classic status. Pair them up with traditional denim jeans, or go wild and wear them with a printed jumpsuit or skirt and tights. Leather cowboy boots come in different lengths, ranging from ankle to shin, and an endless variety of colour combinations, with black and white being most on trend at the moment.
White leather boots are a big fashion item for the season. Whether you prefer kitten heels, or a big chunky block heel, knee-highs or military style, there’s the perfect fit for you. The pair well with most shades, but for a bold look opt for an outfit in pastel colours, or try wearing them with a trench coat and jeans or a midi skirt.
Kitten heel mules
With their petite heel and pointed toe, leather kitten heels are the epitome of femininity, and can turn any outfit from drab to fab. They are highly adaptable to your personal style – pick between a simple, minimalist design, or opt for something bright, fanciful and funky. Mules can be worn with a huge variety of ensembles, from jeans, so suit pants, to skirts and culottes.
As summer arrives, you’ll be looking for something that allows your feet to breathe. Chunky platform sandals with ankle straps are the footwear of choice for the warm season. Pair them with a sun dress, or get funky and rock them with socks underneath.
Contrast toe footwear
We’re seeing this mix and match trend in a huge variety of footwear – from two-tone brogues to ankle and knee-high boots, block heel to stiletto. There are a limitless number of colour combinations, so pick one that works best with your existing palette and add a whole new depth to your outfit. Most of the time the toe is a contrasting colour to the rest of the shoe, but we’re also seeing the heels done in different colours for a fun variation.
Combat boots are back – or did they just never leave? This tough yet stylish footwear option adds a little rock ‘n roll to any outfit – whether you want to chuck on some jeans and a leather jacket, or create an edgy style juxtaposition by wearing them with a feminine flowy sundress. No matter how you style them, leather combat boots just scream cool.
