WINTER 2018/19 SHOE TRENDS
Now that you have seen the list of all winter 2018/19 most fashionable winter shoes it’s time we take a closer look to each of them. And go down to the winter 2018/19 shoe trends. You know, just to make sure you learn everything about every 2018/19 winter shoe trend.
So what should we do first? The colours, shapes, materials, type of the winter shoe, hight of the heel, hight of the boots ..?
Let’s start with the colours first, shall we?
TELL ME THE COLOUR OF YOUR BOOTS, AND I TELL YOU HOW FASHIONABLE YOU ARE – 2018/19 WINTER COLOR REPORT FOR SHOES
Surely you know the colours of winter 2018/19 already. You didn’t miss the AW18/19 Color Report, did you? Well if you did, be sure to recheck it here. You know, some colours are different. But, hell, we still can’t go over the white boots. Yes, white boots are still in fashion.
In fact, white is one of the top 3 most fashionable colours for winter shoes in 2018/19.
#2 EARTHY HUES
Ha, I still can’t believe how smart I was when shopping my over the knee boots in meerkat 2 years ago. That was my best purchase in years for sure. I mean if I got my OTK in black I would be out of style this season. Hence getting them in brown, I’m fashionable even though OTK boots are somehow out of style this season.
In short, get your winter shoes in earthy tones. From beige to brown. Pardon, from almond buff to meerkat. You know, the 70s browns I wrote about here.
#3 METALLIC & GLITTER
Just in time for parties, here are also the metallic shoes. And glitter pumps. Go for dazzling gold shoes or silver glitter. Remember the glittery pumps I stole from my mother and wore for my Christmas picnic last year (from here)? Well, guess what? Those pumps are still in style. But even more these stunning mules. I love to wear them with little black dress (check here) or black pantsuit (see here)
COMING NEXT – ORANGE SHOES
Seeing russet orange in the shoe colour report shouldn’t be a surprise for you. Not only is similar to the colour of the year for 2019, but orange shoes will also be in fashion for spring 2019.
In short, if you want to shop smart, get a pair of winter shoes in orange now and wear them in spring 2019 as well.
ANIMAL PRINT ON SHOES? YES OR NO?
Obviously yes! Animal print is everywhere this winter. The most fashionable winter shoes 2019 come in colourful animal print though. Nevertheless, if you want to shop fashion-forward, note that the IT print of spring 2019 is classic leopard print. Like on these booties.
SAY THE NAME – WINTER SHOE LOGOMANIA
Yes, wearing logos on your shoes is even more stylish than wearing polka dots and animal prints. Plus, shoe logomania is fashionable for spring 2019 as well. All you need to know, right? Here are my favourite winter shoes with logo printed all over the shoes.
PLASTIC OR SHEARLING? WINTER 2018/19 MOST FASHIONABLE MATERIALS FOR SHOES
It’s winter now, and, of course, shearling is in fashion now. So seeing shearling trims on hiking boots shouldn’t surprise you. Unlike transparent plexi shoes.
Well thinking better, plexi is rainproof so perhaps leaving plexi pumps and plexi boots in fashion for winter 2018/19 is not a bad idea. Besides plexi will be in fashion for spring 2019 as well.
Whatsoever, it’s not only the plexi and shearling shoes that are in fashion this season. Suede, crock mocked leather and vinyl are also fashionable. Also satin and velvet. I love these velvet booties. Aren’t they just gorgeous?
THE TYPE OF HEELS THAT ARE IN FASHION FOR WINTER 2018 2019
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 chunky, you are good to go. Ha, I should write you are safe to go.
Even so, it’s not only the chunky heels that are in fashion now. The most fashionable heels for winter 2018/19 are actually the curvy heels. But also the cone heels, stiletto (the 80s are still in fashion for winter 2018/19 – go here for more) and of course, the cowboy heels. Hence the cowboy boots trend.
Ps. Wedges are also back in style. Although no one seems to wear them. Ha, it looks wedges are one of those AW2018/19 fashion trends no one cares about. By the way, have you read my list of all fashion trends we saw on runways but we don’t see much on the streets this season? Moreover, no one wears them in real life? Head on here, to read the list.
THE HIGHT OF HEELS FOR WINTER 2018/19
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 the midi heels this season.
As it goes to the stiletto pumps, well yes, stilettos are still in fashion for winter 2018/19. After all, it’s party season now. By the way, do you know this season’s best party shoes already? I wrote about them here.
FOR WINTER 2018/19 THE TOE OF YOUR SHOE SHOULD BE
Boxy. Well, actually it’s either square or pointy. And round as well. But only when it comes to the hiking boots and under the knee boots. Round pumps and round sandals are out of style for winter 2018/19.
HOW HIGH SHOULD YOUR BOOTS BE THIS WINTER
Not as high as last winter. Genuinely sorry to tell you, but tight high boots are so last season. Winter boots aren’t as high this winter. In fact, the most fashionable boots of winter 2018/19 are under the knee boots. You know under the knee boots, and mid-calf boots are not my favourite boots, but if nothing else, I sure must admit they look stunning with a mini coat. (Ps. Go here to check my coat trend report as well.) In short, Twiggy is back!
BOOTS OR BOOTIES
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? Even though we have seen them on the AW18/19 runways, no one chic wears them this winter.
WE WEAR WHAT ON OUR SHOES? SHOES ARE EMBELLISHED AND FEATHERED FOR WINTER 2018/19
Yes, embellished shoes are still in style. Either with gems, sequins, shearling or feather. Yes, you read that right. We wear feathers on our winter shoes this winter. Well, actually those (look here) furry and feathery boots look quite nice. Don’t you think?
Almost forgot about the fringe. Oh, I just love these Ganni fringed boots.
LACES, ZIP OR NOTHING?
Anything but zipping this winter. Even though zips on clothes are in style for winter 2018/19, we don’t find zips on the most fashionable winter shoes this season. The most stylish winter shoes come with front-up laces, or you only have to pull them on. Oh, I just love to step into my cowboy boots and go. Who has time for zipping anyway?
TOP 9 2018/19 WINTER SHOES YOU SHOULD WEAR THIS WINTER
Now that you know all the 2018/19 winter shoe trends, it’s time for shopping. I know, the list of all fashionable 2018/19 winter shoes is quite long. Especially if you spent all your money on Valentine’s gifts.
Still, it’s sale season, and it’s time you shop for yourself. Here are top 9 shoes you should have this winter. Ps. These shoes are made for walking.
MUST HAVE WINTER SHOES 2019 FOR WOMEN
#1 COWBOY BOOTS
Best in white, like my white western boots. Good news, my Ganni white cowboy boots are back in stock! Shop same Ganni western boots here. Then come back to Brunette from Wall Street and click here to see how to wear these chic, stylish winter boots.
#2 HIKING BOOTS
As you know, I got my hiking boots at See by Chloé. You have seen me wearing my platform hiking boots here already. What you don’t know yet is that I just bought the midi heel hiking boots (see here) and the flat hiking boots (see here). Yes, I have the entire collection of hiking boots now. So let it snow, let it shine or something in between, I’m ready for any winter weather.
#3 UNDER THE KNEE BOOTS
Thinking better I should have listed under the knee boots first since these boots are the most trending winter shoes right now. I like these under the knee boots right now.
Just, a little tip, don’t wear them with denim jeans. We don’t want that ugly fashion trend to come back any time soon.
#4 CHUNKY SNEAKERS
Mentioning the ugly fashion trends, chunky sneakers are again the most fashionable sneakers for winter 2018/19. Can you guess the brand of the trendiest chunky sneakers? No? Then click here to find out.
#5 SLOUCHY BOOTS
Back to the boots. Slouchy boots. Yes, last winter’s most fashionable winter boots are still in style. The only thing different about this fashion shoe trend from last year is the height of the boots. There is only one rule this winter. They have to be slouched. Your boots, high or low, with the heels or flat, if not western or Twiggy’s they should be slouched. Ps. Go here to read more about 2019 slouch update.
#6 METALLIC MULES
Only one word. Wait, two. Malone Souliers. I just got my first pair (see and shop here) of Malone Souliers metallic mules. Right on time for spring.
#7 PLEXI PUMPS
Another party shoes are the plexi pumps. As said, these pumps will be fashionable in spring 2019 as well. So better shop them now. Over here.
Ps. Go here to see how to wear them for work once it gets warmer and here to see how to turn plexi pumps in best party shoes.
#8 90s SANDALS
Sandals in winter? Well, it’s not winter everywhere. And if you are off to somewhere nice, be sure to take these sandals with you. Besides, it’s better you shop 2019 most fashionable sandals ahead, still in winter. Not only you get to chose the 90s sandals you really like, but they will also cost you less now. Believe me, the price of these strappy sandals will go up sharply come April.
#9 PENNY LOAFERS
You need some flats, right? With ballerina flats being out of style, penny loafers (buy here) are just the flats you should get. They are chic and will be perfect transitional shoes once the winter is gone as well. Plus, they look chicer than slippers, don’t they?
MORE SHOE TRENDS AND MORE WINTER FASHION
By the way, those furry slippers everyone wore last winter are out of style. Just like those boots mentioned earlier. Anyway, more about winter shoes that are out of style for 2019 is coming up on Brunette from Wall Street in a new post.
