Minimalism, simple elegance and timelessness: this is what shoe fashion looks like in autumn.
Miuccia Prada is obviously optimistic: at least as far as shoe fashion is concerned, the designer, who is also responsible for the Miu Miu brand, is betting on a friendly autumn with lots of sunny spells. How else can it be explained that peeptoes dominate her collection for the new season? However, the shoe model with the big toe peeking out at the front can also be found at fashion brands like & Other Stories or Cos. And also in the form of boots, ballerinas and mules. The shoe model also works in combination with tights with midi skirts or mini dresses - if you don't have to walk through wet leaves and puddles.
But you're probably better off with loafers at this time of year. The trend towards the flat, menswear-inspired loafer is still going strong. Whether plain and black, with a platform sole or buckle application, in suede or patent leather: they combine comfort with style, so to speak, and can be worn with jeans just as well as with a trouser suit or skirt. Those who like it more feminine and extravagant will also get their money's worth: there's plenty of sparkle in pumps and heels. A touch more practical but no less elegant are kitten heels, those shoes whose heels are narrow but only three to five centimetres high and taper to a point at the front.
The counter-programme to this fine footwear are so-called XXL wide-leg boots with an extra-wide shaft, which are wrapping the legs this autumn at Alexander McQueen and Y-Project, for example. The loose silhouette is an alternative to the skin-tight sock boots that are still in.
Motorcycle-style ankle boots that slip on or lace-up boots with thick soles are also still in. And: rubber boots. From Chanel to Bottega Veneta and Tod's, there are also mid-height models in some bright colours. Fashionistas wear the footwear not only in rain and muddy weather, but also with casual everyday outfits in bright sunshine.
