High or low? It’s not like that you actually have a choice when it comes to the heels in winter. Nevertheless, as long as your heels are geometric, you are good to go. Ha, I should write you are safe to go.
Even so, it’s not only the geometric heels that are in fashion now. Even though the most fashionable heels for winter 2021 are actually the chunky heels, there are also the kitten heels in fashion now.
Despite the snow and frost, the heels of winter shoes are quite high this winter. Luckily not without the platforms.
However, the most fashionable winter boots come with midi heels and mini heels this season. Yes, that is one reason more why I got those stunning by far ivory ankle booties.
Yes, yes and yes! Platform shoes, especially those with chunky lug sole platform, are in style for winter 2021.
Boxy and square. In short, square toe shoes are in style for winter 2021. Sure, pointy shoes are somehow fine too, but round toes are out of style for winter 2021. On the other side, the almond toe is coming back, too.
Higher than the last winter. Yes, tight high boots are back in style for winter 2021. Furthermore, high ankle boots, mid-calf ankle boots are very fashionable for winter 2021. Ha, I guess I have one reason more to choose Bottega Veneta lug leather boots over Prada lug sole boots.
Anyway, under the knee boots like the white under the knee boots that I recently bought, are also still in fashion for winter 2021. Ps. Check the AW21 style trend report to see how to wear under the knee boots this season.
So is it boots or ankle boots that we wear this winter? Ha, this was the question I used to ask myself every winter. Luckily I don’t have to deal with this question anymore since I know the right answer. The correct answer is something in between. Just the answer you were looking for, right?
As said, the mid-calf boots, slightly under the knee boots are the IT boots of the season.
However, ankle boots are fashionable too. Only not the under ankle booties. You know, those ankle boots that make your ankles look chunky?
Anyway, the most fashionable ankle boots are combat boots, lug sole boots and all lace-up booties.
Yes, embellished shoes are still in style. Either with gems, sequins, shearling, feather or chain. Yes, you read that right. We wear the chain on our winter shoes this winter.
The most stylish winter shoes in winter 2021 are lace-up booties – so-called witch booties. But step-in boots are fashionable too.
Snow boots, of course! Those ugly chunky snowboots, like sorel boots, yes Jessica those hideous boots you had in Montreal, are actually top 10 most fashionable shoes in 2021.
Surely you know the colours of winter 2021 already. You didn’t miss the winter 2021 colour report, did you? Well if you did, let me just tell you that the most fashionable colours for shoes in winter 2021 are jet stream, almond oil, silver, gold, blue, black, and white. Yes, white boots are still in fashion. In fact, white is one of the top 3 most fashionable colours for winter shoes in 2021.
WHITE SHOES ARE STILL IN STYLE
I know, it’s unbelievable that white shoes are still in fashion. I mean they have been here for 4 years in a row. And still in fashion. Luckily I got my ankle boots and retro sneakers in white.
IVORY SHOES ARE THE MOST FASHIONABLE SHOES OF THE SEASON
Nude hues, especially jet stream and almond oil, but also light brown, are the most fashionable colours for shoes in winter 2021, note that! Hence a pair of nude ankle boots is simply a must have.
For all of you wondering what shoes will I get – I purchased these chic booties from by far. Aren’t they gorgeous? I can’t wait to wear them with a pair of straight jeans or with a stylish mini skirt.
I also bought these JIMMY CHOOx Timberland ankle boots – I can’t believe that my first Jimmy Choos are actually the Holzer shoes.
BLACK SHOES ARE MORE FASHIONABLE THAN EVER
Admittedly, black shoes are classic shoes that shouldn’t miss in your capsule wardrobe any season. Whatsoever, black shoes are fashionable for winter 2021, too.
The only tricky question which black shoes to buy for winter 2021. I’m getting Chelsea boots. As said earlier I found many black lug sole boots that I really like, but I don’t know which black luge sole boots I like more. I did, however, narrowed my selection down to two while writing this AW21 shoe trend report.
