Women 2017 ankle boots

Massive heels and platforms

If previously ankle boots have to be with tall and very thin stilettos, then modern fashion has introduced some changes in this rule. It is known that the footwear collections are currently crammed with massive heels and platforms, which also can be seen at ankle boots. Also it is observed that designers tend to give up a little on very sexy and refined outfits, offering more brutal and masculine looks. For example, Marc Jacobs and Maison Margiela propose to wear ankle boots with massive heels over thick thighs and socks, while Dolce & Gabbana has decorated its designs with metal rivets.

platforms and heels

Contrasting Inserts

Contrasting side inserts are very famous cut elements, they used in the new cold season by known brands such as Ralph Lauren and Versace. Moreover, such inserts must necessarily differ from the rest of the footwear either by material or by color.

Pointed Toe

The pointed toe is able to confer any footwear a certain charm and elegance. And if you like sober and refined looks, then this option is for you. Ankle boots with pointed toe may be supplemented by laces (Derek Lam) or miniature straps (Bottega Veneta).

Ankle boots with frills

Frills are modern elements of footwear decoration. However, it is known that fashion does not stand still. Designers are increasingly urging us not to stop at the classical methods of decoration, making experiments on various garments. Due to such artistic growth, nice and romantic frills can now be found on footwear. We must say that in this case they look as harmonious as on skirts and dresses (examples can serve the fashion presentations from Rodarte and Fendi). Ankle boots with frills Fall Winter 2016 2017

Laced Ankle Boots

Laced footwear are again in the top of footwear fashion trends. Shoelaces can be found both on highboots and shoes, as well as on booties. Sometimes shoelaces are found only as decoration. Very often laced ankle boots are complemented by some type of accessories like bows, straps, zippers, etc.

Ankle boots with tread

This is the novelty in the fashion world: association of brutality with femininity, comfort and practicability and style. What woman does not dream of a pair of comfortable and beautiful footwear? However, we all know how hard it is to find such a pair that would satisfy all requirements simultaneously. In help comes the tread, which makes footwear extremely comfortable without depriving a woman of feminine rights thereof, to be beautiful and stylish. How was fitted the tread, show us Maison Margiela, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton.

Decor elements

The most wanted decorative elements are: tassels (Burberry, Dries Van Noten), metallic gasket and floral applications (Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana), decorative zippers and straps (Boss, Ralph Lauren), rhinestones, etc. If some designers have used the methods listed above, then others used the original line-cutting. For example, Narciso Rodriguez presented booties with pointed toe and deep cutouts. Brands have tried to use any method to give their items originality and style.

Do you like experiments? Try the tread with various decorative elements. Do you love elegance and refinement – you have available the pointed toe and for admirers of extravagance, we have very high and thick heels.

While we certainly enjoy checking out the trends on the runways, those with the shoe fetish will be happy to know the main fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoe trends, effectively making a shopping spree rather imperative come late summer. So while you begin to plan the wardrobe for the year, we have put together a comprehensive list of what exactly to look for when setting up you ensembles. Think classy and trashy at the same time, multiple decades blending into one. There are few entirely new looks and many which have been recycled and redone to match the year’s needs and general mood, one which has moved away from the 1970s Western for the most part, but still retains residues, and incorporated the ‘80s and ‘90s a whole lot more, while focusing on the futuristic as well. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends It is a season of intriguing creations and the fall generally sets the stage for the coming year, which meant the pointy shoes will be giving way to something more on the rounded square feel we can assume. Platforms, straps, buckles, and lots of texture are all to be expected. It is not only interesting but also quite appealing altogether. The top fall/ winter 2016-2017 trendy shoes to look out for when shopping include:

#1: Pointy Toes

One of the biggest fall 2016 shoe trends is the use of the pointy toe, though we did notice some rounding off in a few places. The pointed aspect is much more on the chic side, despite being more painful to your feet over time. It appears throughout, from plain black boots seen at Emilio Pucci to the suede ankle shoes with the lacing on top as seen at Alexander Wang. The pointed toes exist just about everywhere really, from sequined shoes to leather pumps, Western styles to futuristic designs. It is the top trend of the fall and winter seasons! Pointy toes and rounded heels with some ankle straps added to the ankle boots at Narciso Rodriguez are simply delectable and we can officially agree that plain white with pointy toes is the best footwear route for the fall and winter! Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Pointy-Toe Shoes

#2: Open Toes

If the footwear has closed toes, chances are it is pointy. But then again, apparently it is rather normal to be wearing multiple layers and have on some warm tight as well, but keep the toes open. As such, the sandal looks stay in style for the fall and winter seasons, despite the chill, requiring a good long vacation to a really warm country instead. Prada comes in with a colorful piece that includes aqua straps, a large golden buckle, and a black body, the only piece of skin shown other than the neck and the hands being the toes. Shimmering aspects were added at Alexander McQueen to add to its evening perfection and match with those darling shimmering see-through dresses, while there were some rather interesting open toe combinations, including with socks, at 3.1 Phillip Lim. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Peep-Toe Shoes

#3: Shoes with Multiple Buckled Straps

If you like the gladiator look, love the strappy shoes and are all for the silver hued hardware added everywhere, you will absolutely adore the rather stripper-like 8-inch-high heels with the platforms from Marc Jacobs, appearing in blacks and greys and some lovely reptile skin textures. Multiple buckles come into play at Nicopanda, details over the lace-up shoes with the ribbons out back and the red suede body. Multiple buckled straps appear to make for the loveliest in evening pumps for fall 2016, complete with playful patterns at Altuzarra, effectively transitioning one from the summer months to the closed fall without sacrificing on the beauty of fashionable footwear. Furthermore, instead of the traditional buckles you can opt for the clickable designs that would make a four strapped mid-calf height partial boot quite the look to invest in. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes & Boots With Multiple Buckles

#4: Big Buckles

If you love metal hardware in any sense of the word, you will adore the use of large buckles or buckles in general that are pretty much a top footwear trend for fall 2016. From Prada’s open-toe looks to the rather intriguing over-the-ankle boots at Burberry, the appearance of large buckles, especially in gold colors, was satisfying. There is something extremely gorgeous about seeing the triple buckles along the side of the Temperley boots that are a cross between over the ankle and mid-calf, the pointy toes adding to the attractiveness of the piece, while its combination with the clothing worn is superb. There are some interesting big buckled details on some of the Anna Sui thigh-high boots as well, which lend the velvety look an even richer background. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes & Boots With Big Buckles

#5: Wear Your Shoes With Socks

Shoes and booties worn with socks might not be the first style you think of, but it is one of the most common fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoe trends on the runways, no matter what type of creation adorns your feet. That includes the Tommy Hilfiger chunky heels versions of a rounded toe metallic hued shoe, the over-the-ankle rocker piece with the lacing and Western stylization, the checked stockings that are seen with the low heeled old timer pieces from Thom Browne to the golden ankle hugging sandals at 3.1 Phillip Lim. There are too many designers using this particular trend to count right now, but perhaps a good favorite is the T-bar d’Orsay pairs with the chunky heels and the white bodies fromEdun, worn with white socks that scrunch around the ankles, appearing as a modern version of our childhood footwear when we visited church on Easter holidays. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes With Socks

#6: Lace-Up Footwear

We see a whole lot of the lacing on the clothing as well as the fall 2016 footwear. When it comes to the latter, boots are the more prominent creations using this trend and definitely looking lovely. We thought that the gladiator pieces would be going out of style soon but we were mistaken it appears. With a few updates to the overall looks of the footwear, we can easily say that gladiator boots are here to stay for quite a while longer. In the meantime, picking up a black suede rounded pointy-toe pair from Prada should do the trick. Add in some over the ankle laced-up looks and some sneakers with the lacing, the former spotted at Thom Browne and the latter at Nicopanda, and you have some lovely warmer day pieces to wear out while still looking quite casual. Casual chic takes on new meaning at Rag & Bone though, where the white merges with black and the golden hardware adds an air of wealth to the style. We see some lovely lacing over the shimmering chunky heeled shoes found at Tommy Hilfiger, adding a touch of feminine grace to the design. As for the touch of medieval royalty to the suede creations, we have to put that all on Anna Sui, laced-up calf-length designs and all. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Lace-Up Shoes

#7: Shoes with Ankle Straps

Single straps or multiple, the ankle strap look is huge for the upcoming colder seasons and there is no way not to love the style. It elongates the legs, shows off the ankle, slims out the feet and generally looks amazing. We see the style all over, from the sandals to the d’Orsay looks, the Marc Jacobs Spice Girl shoes to the mock Mary Jane designs seen at Gucci. At Lela Rose, the clear with black combination is superb, while the fringed toes add a certain sense of je ne sais quoi to the whole thing. Double ankle straps appear on ballerina shoes with shimmering golden heels at Kate Spade, making the whole thing appear divine, square nose and all. There are a few T-bar d’Orsay pairs as well, including those from Edun that come fitted with socks, looking so very perfect for Easter celebrations over the winter months. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes With Ankle Straps

#8: Chunky Gothic Shoes

Normally just seen on Alexander Wang, the chunkier boots with a punk rock or Gothic feel to them had a rather interesting place on the runway, appearing all over, even with sequined dresses worn on top as per Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. Open toes also appear on the chunky lines at 3.1 Phillip Lim, not really the loveliest of designs, but somehow taken as a stylish trend. We will probably keep away from that particular one though. Red suede with black detailing is what we see at Nicopanda, the platform of the heels really attractive when combined with the multiple buckles and ribbons out back. Edun mixes black and white to get the laced-up Western over-the-ankle booties that remind us of a restructured Converse shoe. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Chunky Gothic Shoes

#9: Leather All Over

Since we have seen the leather boots so much on the runways, it rather gets redundant to even mention on this list. It is one of the top fall 2016 shoe trends. Period. From pointy toes to slightly squared or rounded pieces, embellished pieces or plain boots, pretty pumps or laced up creations, ankle heights or knees, about three quarters of the fall 2016 shoes appearing on the runways were indeed in leather. Boss brings in leather with silver zipper hardware, Opening Ceremony is all about the plain and the platform, Edun is chunky and wild, Rag & Bone brings in black and white combinations and lovely lacing, while Thom Browne rejoices in having leather for the laced up shoes. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Leather Shoes & Boots

#10: Suede Shoes

Lovely camel or beige colors on suede shoes are a personal favorite really, especially when you add on some laces and have the whole thing stop at the ankles, much as is done at Alexander Wang this year. With platform heels, the look is similar to one that existed a few years back as well, with the possibility of a few having kept their old shoes. The differences with my own? The lacing is at the front instead of the side and the toes are pointed instead of square. There are suede feet with mesh legs at Diane von Furstenberg, laced up designs with high, chunky heels at Ralph Lauren, and it all comes in red with black leather detailing at Nicopanda with those awesome rounded toes and multi buckled looks. As for some of the loveliest suede pumps on the Fashion Week shows spotted, we would have to say those suede pretty stiletto heeled versions are definitely something to look out for. Anna Sui has a special love for the suede, having it appear on everything from the multiple strapped shoes to the mid-calf booties to the laced up royal designs and so much more. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Suede Shoes & Boots

#11: A Touch of Velvet on Shoes

The three main materials that are in style for the fall, whether in the clothing ensembles or the shoes, are leather, suede and luxurious velvets. The velvet also happens to appear in rather feminine fashions, including a gorgeous diver green slingback with a Mary Jane banded bow at Jason Wu, a kitten heeled d’Orsay pair looking even lovelier for the older ladies in the crowd. There is pink velvet on ballerina shoes at Kate Spade, with double straps around the ankle and shimmering gold heels, while it is all we can see at Jenny Packham with her ankle booties. Velvet in the 3.1 Phillip Lim boots is simply to be admired, especially as it turns a dual tone pair of over the ankles into a dual texture one as well, the feeling of the velvet body too good to pass up. Some also come in full velvet, which makes the designs stand out on the runway even more so. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Velvet Shoes

#12: Sequin Textures on Shoes

Sequins were huge on the clothing themselves, let alone the fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoes. For the crazier creations with the ruffles and frills and strange collars, the use of colorful sequins on the footwear was not at all abnormal. On the contrary, it matched the clothing textures perfectly at J.W. Anderson. Gorgeous pumps with atypical stiletto heels and platforms at the soles appear with sequins added to the nude body on the Oscar de la Renta runway, while we get to enjoy the addition of sequins on multiple pieces throughout. This is a mini trend though and has a hard time competing with some of the more prominent looks on the runways. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Sequined Shoes

#13: Reptile Skin Textures

Textures are a big thing for the fall season all over, especially when it comes to reptile skin lookalikes, appearing all over the runway. We see them with extremely high platforms and multiple buckled straps at Marc Jacobs, in gorgeous pointed-toe ankle boots fromMulberry, with wooden heels and 1970s looks at Ralph Lauren, and snakeskin with steel caps on the toes and an open backing at Proenza Schouler. And have you seen Rodarte’s colorful knee-high boots with the ruffled body and sculptured heels? The combination of reptile skins, particularly snake, here are definitely worth every penny. Erdem’s scarlet with black combinations are certainly lovely, while Opening Ceremony’s mules come in silver hues and with kitten heels, the body of it looking like a lizard’s. Add some fur onto snakeskin shoes as crossing bands and heel accents such as that at BCBG, and you have a pair that is simply delectable. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Reptile Skin Shoes & Boots

#14: Shoes with Marabou Trimmings

Just as they appeared on the clothing, so they appeared on the footwear as well. The colorful feathery looks seen at Christopher Kane did not end with the dresses but spread to the ankle boots as well, appearing in fine purple. It made its way onto Marques’ Almeida fashions as well, appearing hip and lovely while lining the patent shoes. It might not be your typical trend but it appeared a few times throughout, on clothing, coats and also footwear to be able to call a micro trend. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Marabu Feathers

#15: Playing with Platforms

One of the top fall 2016 shoe trends is the use of platforms, often towering extremely high. Those have the Spice Girls effect and appear on the Maison Margiela, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, and Vivienne Westwood runways, among others. There are those where the platform is only at the sole and meant to pull it up in order to balance out with the stiletto heels, such as the stacked version spotted at Oscar de la Renta. The platform heels at Nicopanda are certainly something to be enjoying, even if there is no arch support. It does, however, give you height, and that is something we as short people love in a good platform shoe. There are gorgeous platforms with heels to the Opening Ceremony knee-high boots as well, while Alexander Wang’s suede pieces are hardly a look to ignore with the comfortable platform soles. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Platform Shoes

#16: David Bowie and Spice Girl Boots

You like the platforms and you like the heels? Here are some 1980s looks that you will adore. Build up the inches on the heels, add in a 5-6-inch sole region, combine the style with a few other trends and you have Marc Jacobs in all its glory. If you like this style, that is very David Bowie, you will enjoy seeing it throughout the Fashion Weeks and wearing it out proudly. Whether you go for the jeans appropriate Vivienne Westwood designs or the pure white foot contouring Balenciaga, you are in for a treat. The very best spotted on the runway, in our opinion however, is the Maison Margiela half boots with the soft texturing, the tiger prints and the sculptured heel that brings in a slight curve for added visual effect. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: David-Bowie-Style Eccentric Shoes

#17: Kitten Heels

The fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoes appear to bring in massive diversity and extreme opposites. Where the positively high platforms are in, so are the little kitten heels that add just a slight bit of height to the flats and give the arch a bit of support. Marni does this with some truly chic sculptural heeled kitten courts. Kitten heeled mules also appear on the runway, in reptile textures and a silver metallic sheen, courtesy of Opening Ceremony. There is something rather adorable about seeing a not so thin kitten heel on a pair of d’Orsay shoes in velvet among the Jason Wu collection actually as well. This style is generally just too cute for words to describe in general and we are glad to see it on our list of the best fall 2016 shoes. And if you want to get artistically chic, there is always theMichael Kors ball-heeled designs that are simply too delectable to pass up, particularly with the shiny pointy toe to the black leather body. For those who like to combine huge platforms with kitten heels as well, Vera Wang offers an interesting alternative, open toes, leather bodies, 6-inch platforms and tiny golden heels and all. It is possibly one of the most intriguing looks on the runway shoes for the season. Then again, Vera Wang does have a tendency to excel in fashion combinations. We are curious if this does not destabilize the foot instead. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Kitten Heels

#18: Shoes with Sculptured Heels

We have been seeing the sculptured heels since 2015 really and while they are more of a mini trend, they are still rather lovely to look at and even lovelier to own. We see wooden inserts to the heels at Marni, low and in tune with the pointy-toed look. The heels at Proenza Schouler appear with slight curves and mirrored chrome, giving the creations a rather artistic feel. Oscar de la Renta’s crystal encrusted stiletto heels are simply divine, especially with the rest of the shoe being in a dusty pink satin finish. Rodarte’s heels are pretty fun coming in a cone shape and literally taking you from chunky to stiletto, adding strength to the heel that carries the rather heavy looking boots, which are all about colors, ruffles and snakeskin textures. Sculptured heels can be quite simple as well as Michael Kors puts it, making the ball design of the kitten look really pretty, particularly as a comfortable professional office pair of not-so-flat flats. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Sculptured Heels Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Sculptured Heels

#19: Shoes with Chunky Heels

Chunky heels are in! We see a whole lot of different heels on the catwalk as the different Fashion Weeks have rolled on by, but the chunky heels coming back to the stage were not unexpected. We knew it would dominate as well, which it most certainly did. We see the laced-up Western looks at Ralph Lauren, while the chunky look is predominant in general on the Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, Hugo Boss and Proenza Schouler runways, with quite a few appearing in contrast with the dainty stilettoes at Oscar de la Renta. Crisscross straps and a rounded pointy toe is what we get at Tory Burch the femininity of it all offset by the chunkiness of those marble hued heels. Metallic chunky heels, on the other hand, are all Tommy Hilfiger. The most fun to have with chunky heels is to add in the fur, as done at BCBG. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Chunky Heels

#20: Wooden Heels

There are some wooden looks and real wood heels that we see on the runways, ranging from the lovely Marni kitten heels worn over stirrup tights to the mesh leg and suede-foot pointy-toe Diane von Furstenberg Western style boots. The Ralph Lauren over-the-ankle boots are pretty interesting themselves, with the reptile texture and the maroon coloring, the wooden heels and overall comfort feel. Boss has its own range of wooden heels, all in square form and looking quite lovely. They are decidedly gorgeous and well set to look great with just about any ensemble, for day or night. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Wooden Heels

#21: Square Heels

It does not seem apparent at first, but one of the top fall 2016 shoe trends to be found on the runways is indeed the square heel. Yes, there are stilettos. Yes there are platforms. Yes there are kitten heels and wooden ones, but it is the square look that really sets the stage, whether it is on a simple shoe or a boot or a sandal even. The simple square heel is all you really need as height is not needed for everyone, nor should it be coveted by the tallest. The fall/ winter 2016-2017 footwear trends seem to offer something for everyone, no matter height or weight or ability to travel about. There is the crazy and the comfortable, the grunge and the olden all put together to create a set of trends that allows for uniqueness and individuality. In terms of the square heels, most of all designers have taken to creating in this style, from the Anna Sui boots of all lengths, including mid-calf and thigh-high designs, to the Boss by Hugo Boss pieces, which excel in the square designs. Jason Wu’s d’Orsay creations in black velvet are not far behind in their extraordinary nature either. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Square Heels

#22: Mid-Calf Boots

A trend that was noticed starting from the New York Fashion Week was the mid-calf lengths, which come in handy for the ladies, who want more than an ankle height but soccer calves prevent them from finding a good pair of knee-lengths or even higher reaching. The mid-calf boots also come in some really pretty patterns and strong heels, including the mock leopard print at Michael Kors and the golden Western beauties at Coach, studs and buckles and all. At the end of the day, the mid-calf is the most prominent trend on the runways after the over-the-ankle boots, while the knee-high and thigh-high also reign supreme. Coach is among the many designer houses that seem to side with this top trend. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Mid-Calf Boots

#23: Over-the-Ankle Boots

Whether paired with stilettoes or chunky heels, in leather or suede, with embellishments or without, we have seen the over-the-ankle boots as a top contender for its place among the top fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoe trends, appearing in nearly most collections. Ralph Lauren’s double buckled leather stiletto booties are too chic for words, while Boss brings in 3-inch height, zipper hardware defined black leather booties. At Erdem, the reptile-texture boots come over the ankles and look rather lovely in matching colors with the dresses worn, one particular in scarlet and black combinations catching our eyes. There are multiple looks to consider in this style from 3.1 Phillip Lim alone, including dual tones that also include dual textures, sometimes combining the velvet with the leather in intriguing colors that simply look too good to be true. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Ankle Boots

#24: Knee-Length Boots

Since we are looking at colder months and snow, rains, perhaps some hail throughout the winter seasons especially, the knee-length boots are exactly what the doctor ordered really. It appears with steel cap toes at Proenza Schouler, in mesh at Diane von Furstenberg, and so very 1980s at Anna Sui. One really intriguing way to wear the knee-length boots is with multi colored bands and ruffles throughout, the heels sculptured and the body of reptile skins. Similar boots appeared also at Christian Siriano, with a clear depiction of snakeskin on the stilettoed creation. As for the knee-length in the masculine looks, DKNY certainly rules that ground! Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Knee-Length Boots

#25: Thigh-High Boots

Boots in all lengths are in style for this fall and winter seasons it appears, which is rather intriguing. In general, the fall 2016 boot trends seem to have a much wider range, focusing on nearly everything above the ankles really. The thigh-high versions might not be the top trend, but they certainly do keep appearing quite a bit, so much so that even though we would have left it off this list, they insisted on having their own category. They come in velvet at Anna Sui, with print patterned tights underneath, in mock reptile skin with square heels at Altuzarra in a leather material, worn with pants tucked in, and in a simpler black leather, with the added bonus of wooden heels on the Boss Women’s collection, Western toned down to match with the day’s needs. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Thigh-High Boots

#26: Gorgeous Evening Pumps

Pretty shoes are definitely something to fall in love with, whether they are of a satin base or leather, with sculptured heels or simple. From the sequins and crystal encrusted pieces viewed at Oscar de la Renta to the plain beauty of the black Gareth Pugh pumps, this is a look that certainly can be worn any time, so long as the snow is not very deep come winter. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Evening Pumps

#27: Footwear with Prints

Whether shoes or boots, there are quite a few pieces that appear with lovely prints on them, often made to match with the clothing worn with it, completing the ensemble. Such is the case with the Burberry fashions where the green, blue and grey color combination is transferred to the over-the-ankle, big buckled boots adorning the feet, creating slightly different patterns on them than those which appear on what is pulled over the body. The mixing of prints is definitely in style unto itself, so it makes sense really. Floral prints are rather interesting on the footwear as well, lending to their stylish feminine appeal. Prints can come in all different shapes and sizes and colors, which is where the Altuzarra ones certainly rule, effectively mixing all the right color combinations with the enchantment of wearing evening pumps out. Put perhaps the most intriguing is the Anna Sui creations, where the prints on the shoes match perfectly with the prints on the tights, appearing as if one is walking on air really. Checks are a common look in 2016 it appears, whether we are looking at spring and summer or fall and winter. As such, it makes sense that the trend would also appear on the footwear, matching the pants to some degree at Marques’ Almeida, the teal and black combination appearing once again as a color trend. The Altuzarra checked footwear includes a fur based body, a hexagon pattern and a very honeycomb look that is a little out of place from the general tartan checks but very interesting unto itself. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Printed Shoes

#28: Dual Tone Footwear

While not apparent from the start, soon it becomes painfully clear that the teal and black combination appears in a few different ways, on a few different pieces. Prada’s open-toe big-buckled shoes appear with teal ankle straps to their black bodies. Marques’ Almeida combines a teal base with black checks to its kitten heeled shoes. The dual tones in general are huge on the runways, appearing all over, from New York to London, Milan to Paris, and really setting the tone for the ensembles worn out. In this case, 3.1 Phillip Lim is a great example with its silver with brown open-toe d’Orsay style sandals and maroon with black combination over-the-ankle boots. There are even some with velvet bodies and silver leather toes, the dual tones adding to the appeal. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Dual-Tone Shoes & Boots

#29: Western Rodeo

Whereas 2015 was nearly fully about the Western looks, the fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoes have some remnants and they are positively delectable from time to time while remaining plain and comfortable at others. From The Row and its camel hued boots in simple leather to the steel capped Proenza Schouler with the knee-high effects and the chunky dark brown heels to the caramel brown body, Western style shoes appeared quite often on the runway during the recent shows. The looks can also come in mesh, as seen at Diane von Furstenberg, the suede pointy toes helping keep the feet warm while the leg gets breathing room. Western is the perfect way to describe the modernized but still retro footwear in gold found on the Coach runway, complete with buckles and studs, made lovelier with some sculptured heels. The loveliest of the Western looks is the ankle boots from Jenny Peckham, which include a velvet body, thicker heel and intriguing stitching leading to something that is truly too good to pass up once it becomes available in stores. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Western Cowgirl Boots

#30: Gorgeous Slingbacks

It might be the colder seasons we are looking at for the footwear trends, but some of the fall 2016 shoes are more meant for the warmer days. This means moving out to Thailand or Malaysia for year round lovely weather… or maybe we’ll settle for Florida, the Caribbean, the United Arab Emirates or somewhere else along those line, where the winters are as warm as the summers in other countries. The slingback looks are definitely meant for that, especially when they are as gorgeous as the perfect set of evening shoes from Oscar de la Renta, the ball-studded Michael Kors lovelies, or the snakeskin textured steel-toe slingbacks seen at Proenza Schouler. Things take on a velvet touch in deep diver aqua at Jason Wu, presenting a pair that is more than just hard to resist, but presents a very cutesy feminine touch with that Mary Jane banded bow. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Slingback Shoes

#31: Wild Cat Prints on Shoes

The textures with the reptile skin are certainly something to be coveted, but it gets even lovelier when you substitute reptile with wildcat. Stylized leopard prints appear on Michael Kors extremely chunky heeled boots, looking pretty awesome unto themselves, while the fun trend is seen at Jeremy Scott with even more aplomb, this time as platform knee-high boots in a bright sky blue with gentle orange hues, the combination making the tiger stripes stand out from the collection. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Cat-Print Shoes

#32: Shoes in Metallic Hues

Forget the textures, the colors are what get to us here. We see a whole lot of metallic appearing, from the Chanel golden looks, including booties and not-your-grandmother’s shoes, while Tommy Hilfiger is not far behind with mid-calf boots and chunky-heel bits, these guys worn with socks. The silver can be found on kittle-heeled mules at Opening Ceremony as well, complete with a reptile skin texture that lends to its appeal. At Coach, the metallic hues are aplenty, ranging from golds to silvers to some deeper shimmering colors, including a more reddish copper look among the mix, complete with a Western design. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Metallic Shoes & Boots

#33: Slits in Shoes

Notice how the fall 2016 clothing trends tended to focus quite a bit on slits? The 2016-2017 shoes have also adopted the style and have appeared countless times on the runway with one form of slit apparent or another. We see the pointy-toed pieces with the large buckles in reptile textures on the Victoria Beckham runway, sporting a sexy slit to the outer side of the foot. At Opening Ceremony, the slit came down the center with a modest addition of shimmery cloth banded from underneath, a similar thing with an ankle boot appearing at Narciso Rodriguez, wherein an ankle strap kept the plunging slit from opening up and allowing the foot to slip out. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Cut-Outs

#34: Furry Detailing on Footwear

Fur, faux or real, was huge on the fall 2016 runway, something that has been trending for a long time in reality. From fur stoles to fur coats, fur accents and fur details, it was all over the place as one of the top trends. Now we also get to see it on the fall 2016 footwear that has been presented, appearing as bands or pompoms, fully engulfing or tiny bits, on the body and the heels. BCBG includes a fur band over snakeskin shoes with chunky fur lined heels as well. At Zero Maria Cornejo, the loafers are given the fur treatment as well, ensuring the tops of the feet and the toes are safe from the chilly elements. And then, of course, there are those furry Baja East slippers that we simply cannot do without. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Fur Accents

#35: Open Heel Booties

Forget the slingbacks, these are the shoes of the future and some also come with gorgeous red soles to the black leather bodies, as seen at Cushnie et Ochs. Backless shoes really with ankle straps and some more support around the base of the heels, these are quite lovely but rather intriguing in the fact that half the foot will be warm while the other half will freeze. Alexander Wang seems to have no problems with showing off the backs of the feet, making his silver studded white versions definitely a collector’s piece. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Open-Heel Boots

#36: Mesh Footwear

The legs and feet are given space to breathe from time to time, which is exactly the thought process behind the boot featured at the Diane von Furstenberg runway. With a suede foot and mesh leg, reaching up to over the knees, the boots were rather lovely and made specifically for the fall season, where you can afford not to fully cover up the legs and where the wet grounds will not ruin the suede of the shoes. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Mesh Footwear

#37: Studs Big and Small

A final trend we certainly want to mention is the use of studs on the footwear created for the fall and winter seasons of 2016-2017, from the open back designed booties, like those spotted on the Alexander Wang runway, appearing as silver half balls on white bases, to the French royal shoes from Coach that have a shimmering gold body with darkened silver studding throughout the top half and the heels. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Studs

#38: Matched Shoes with Socks and Stocking

One rather curious look that has turned into a lovely trend is the whole shoe and sock or stocking combination that not only coexists, but matches perfectly. This includes the Anna Sui color combinations that could not have been more right as the legs are clad in purple tights and the feet adorned with purple suede half boots. There are also matching prints to be seen on the same line, with floral detailing on both tights and shoes. There are those that are not the perfect match but come close enough such as the strappy wraparound sandals from Jill Stuart in a deep crimson coloring, the shoes in a shiny look while the stocking worn underneath bearing a mesh property. While the textures differ, the colors are essentially the same. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes Matched With Socks & Tights

#39: A Masculine Appeal

A mini trend among the fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoe trends but a top trend for the clothing, the masculine creations are something to look forward to for the chillier months as well, which means some really lovely Calvin Klein loafers as well, laced up on top and shiny in their material. The addition of a slight platform to it adds grunge to it and more of a feminine youthfulness, despite the masculine appeal. And then of course there is the whole laced-up boots look that has a rounded pointy toe and ticker sole, effectively combining the masculine with the feminine but leaning rather heavily towards the former genre. Knee-high or mid-calf, with lacing or without, the platforms on the DKNY runway lend to the masculinity along with the simpler designs associated with the brand’s fall fashions of 2016. Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Masculine Shoes

#40: Out-of-this-World Footwear Designs

One of the most unconventional fall/ winter 2016-2017 shoe trends is the use of weird designs, textures and color combinations and as a result we have an array of statement-making shoes that will make heads turn as you pass by this fall. We love the zebra shoes with the tail spotted at Gucci, the interesting texture on the J.W. Anderson shoes, the heavy floral appliques on the Dolce & Gabbana designs and the interesting color-blocked futuristic boots from Fendi. Dolce & Gabbana’s Cinderella-inspired glass shoe is a real dream come true! Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Unconventional Shoes Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Shoe Trends: Unconventional Shoes

Browse through our list of the best spring 2017 bridal dress trends that might either facilitate your bridal assemblage choice or just on the contrary, throw you into a maelstrom of ambiguity moments.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends

1. Plunging into Plunging Necklines

If you decide on taking a plunge on your wedding day, there is nothing better than plunging yourself into plunging neckline zone especially as the spring 2017 bridal fashion trends are bursting at the seams with this sassy design. Some gowns with plunging necklines adamantly stick to keeping brides within demure limits, trying not to cut the cleavages so deeply deep or overlaying them with some illusion fragments much as the ones we see at J. Mendel, Jenny Packham, Watters Bride, Anne Barge or Ines Di Santo.

Others are playing far cry from anything discreet decisively commanding the oncoming brides to opt for scandalously deep plunging necklines without even one iota of feeling out of sorts. So whether you select Galia Lahav’s hot gowns with belly-reaching cleavages, Naeem Khan’s halter neck floral one or Reem Acra’s lace stunner, your most conservative guests out there just have to turn a blind eye.

2. Timeless Veils and Trains

Grandiose veils and trains have been used on bridal gowns since the year dot, no way weakening their positions along the years, but on the contrary proliferating with newer and newer designs and embellishments. The spring 2017 wedding dress trends see them in abundance always able to make the plainest gown look super lofty and monumental, hence clothing the bride with powerful allure.

Whether they are in cathedral length like we see at Berta or Romona Keveza or in chapel length as per Francesca Miranda, Marchesa or Sareh Rouri, you are sure to leave some grandeur behind. But if you are after some double grandeur, look toTemperley London’s ground-sweeping veil and train coexistence or else to Reem Acra’s back train to pass through a metamorphosis to become a veil later.

3. Full Capes and Short Capelets Galore

While the main mission of veils and trains is to spread some nobility around, capes and capelets that come out as one of the grandest spring 2017 bridal dress trends, are withal breeze-protecting tools or maybe some flesh-veiling means. Starting from Reem Acra’s bejeweled fragile full cape and Alvina Valenta’s tasseled one to a shirt-style collared capelet at Lela Rose and a range of lace ones at Monique Lhuillier, we are strongly encouraging the impending brides to choose this amazing 2-in-1 bridal trend, walk down the aisle with a cape or capelet on like an idyllic girl, then take it off to show all your sultry cards.

4. Off-The-Shoulder Appeal

Each and every lady in the world puts her shoulder to the wheel to look drop-dead gorgeous on her nuptial and it is here that off-the-shoulder bridal gowns work to a T. The forte of this hyper sensual spring 2017 bridal fashion trend is to show just the right amount of flesh thus triumphantly cementing romance with passion.

The timeless sleek-cut off-the-shoulder designs were, of course, in attendance on the runways but we were truly carried away by those fragile straps as if accidentally sliding off the shoulders spotted at Galia Lahav, Isabelle Armstrong, Oscar de la Renta or on a mind-blowing floral gown at Marchesa. But when this design is applied on bell sleeves or mingled with cascading layers all over, that’s surely the right time to make a nod to savage beauty. Need some tableau vivant? Houghton, Christian Siriano and Sachin & Babi are broadly embracing this boho-chic bridal trend.

5. Running High with High Collars

The next on the list of spring 2017 wedding dress trends we are so enthused to embrace is bridal gowns going higher and higher with high collars. Whether they are teamed with long sleeves and full skirts without any millimeter of flesh showing off or paired with sky-high slits to bare legs, they always make a reference to aristocracy and power.

At Caroline Hayden, Christian Siriano, J. Mendel or Naeem Khan we come across both classic fold-over turtlenecks and mock necks at times intricately embroidered or bejeweled; at Oscar de la Renta neck is all covered with 3-D floral beds, while atVera Wang and Delphine Manivet Shakespeare-style ruff collars pop up to channel more powerful aristocracy vibes.

6. Bridal Pantsuits and Jumpsuits Are On!

Bridal pantsuits and jumpsuits are happening now as one of the biggest spring 2017 bridal fashion trends. Seeing a bride decked out into anything other than a gown happens once in a blue moon. And that might mean two things: the bride has sworn allegiance to pants and refuses parting ways with them even on her wedding day or else she pursues standing out in the crowd of standard brides. So no matter which category you fall under, you really have a wide choice of bridal pantsuits and jumpsuits for the spring to come.

Start from Monique Lhuillier’s Chantilly lace strapless jumpsuit with a tulle overskirt undulating around, then move to Carolina Herrera to tackle the classic front-pleated pants + collared shirt bridal outfit and end with Naeem Khan’s honeycomb-embroidered long-sleeved jumpsuit or an intricate lace tunic + leggings combo. But on your way to unearth the best spring 2017 bridal pants for your white day, don’t forget to drop in on Christian Siriano, Elie Saab, Lela Rose or Lakum, where you would incidentally also find a pair of out-and-out summer-worthy Mikado Rompers.

7. For Your Bridal Blossom

If your wedding date already set coincides with springtime nature awakening by some fluke, opt for a gown with florets all over and pass off as a blossoming part of nature. Floral wedding gowns shape another amazing spring 2017 bridal trend whether with 3D flowers or iridescent embroidered ones scattered here and there.

Starting from Marchesa’s full skirts or tube dresses with 3D realistic flowers as if blossoming right there on stunning brides to Naeem Khan’s hand- or ribbon-embroidered blush, lavender and blue flowers to those colorful roses lodging on the bottom part of a gown at Romantique by Claire Pettibone, becoming the flower of the flock on your nuptial is something absolutely possible.

8. Bridal Gowns with Tiered and Ruffled Skirts

Tiers and ruffles on any bridal dress always work like a charm when it comes to creating some dimension and volume and when they appear on ball gowns, the volume just becomes twofold. The spring 2017 bridal dress trends are teeming with either frothy Spanish flamenco ruffled tiers or more widely cascading ones.

While at Naeem Khan pleated ankle-length skirts are exposing two layers, at Reem Acra, Rivini by Rita Vinieris and Hayley Paige they are becoming more and more in number. The asymmetrical tiers at Houghton are freely showering down in some boho-chic fashion, while at Ines di Santo, Lazaro or Oscar de la Renta the full skirts jam-packed with ruched layers create some foamy ethereal illusion all over to be ruffled up by soft spring breeze.

9. Wedding Dresses with Featherweight Feathers

Want to land on your wedding aisle as if from the heaven? Have a yen for wrapping yourself with some serenity and peace? Featherweight feathers borrowed from pretty birds are to work perfectly in here. This awesome spring 2017 bridal trend is for those brides who want to cement extravagance with sophistication, the terrestrial reality with celestial idealism.

Some designers have brought them on bridal gowns in spades much as we see on a full swooshy skirt at Kelly Faetanini or on some mini and maxi bridals at Christian Siriano for Kleinfeld, while at others, like Mira Zwillinger or Oscar de la Renta some wisps of feathers are scattered here and there – on the hems or on the shoulders. But if you slightly deviate from white and opt for that Naeem Khan ‘Paradise’ pale blue strapless dress running over with ostrich feathers and paillettes, wow screams will go on endlessly.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Feathered Wedding Dresses

10. Scandalous Sheerness and Cutouts

The bridal designers are strongly encouraging the brides to chase all fears for spring 2017 and dare to bare. Well, not fully, of course, but a body part or two or even more. Such body exposing techniques as sheer inserts or cutouts have been widely used by many a designer albeit without any tips on how to carry them from church to wedding dinner under the steadfast gaze of many conservative guests out there.

Some of the sheer bodices cover the breasts by some embroidery or bejeweled fragments as per Alon Livne, Francesca Miranda or J. Mendel, with others sensually showing off hips like at Tony Ward for Kleinfeld, Vera Wang or Berta. However, a range of designers is going for all marbles to present head-to-toe scandalous sheerness starting from Mira Zwillinger’s floral-printed crop top + mini skirt sheer outfit to Theia’s crystal and sequin embroidered tube dresses. On the other hand, it is Ines di Santo to present a mermaid dress with super deep plunging neckline and sensual cutouts at both waistlines.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Wedding Dresses with Transparency & Cut-Outs

11. Crop Top Two Piece Bridal Gowns

Two piece bridal gowns consisting of crop tops and skirts of all the possible lengths are sneaking to us as the next idiosyncratic spring 2017 bridal trend to rivet the attention of the most extravagant individuals out there. While at Caroline Hayden, Christian Siriano, Mira Zwillinger or Ivy & Aster crop tops bare just a very thin strip of belly, at Willowby by Watters a lace crop top paired with a gypsy-style skirt is going more and more cropped. This is just another spring 2017 bridal trend to throw you into audacious and smart-alecky zone.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Crop Top & Skirt Two Pieces

12. Bridal Dresses with Statement Bows

Walking down the aisle donning a bow-detailed gown, chances are to become a real gift for your fiancé. Whether you are keeping that notion in your mind or just considering bows to be crème de la crème romantic accents on a bridal gown, the spring 2017 bridal dress trends are sprouting out them in droves.

At Elisabeth Fillmore, Oleg Cassini, Peter Langner and Sachin & Babi satin sashes are wrapped around the waists to shape romantic bows in the center or sideways, but it is at Carolina Herrera and Lela Rose that bows appear on the back in gargantuan shapes and in statement-making mannerism. Bows even appear on upper arms at Sachin & Babi to serve as pretty arm bandeaus.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Wedding Dresses with Bows

13. Bridal Jackets and Boleros

Though bridal jackets and boleros did not appear so frequently as cape and capelets did, we are firmly sending them to the storage of the best spring 2017 wedding dress trends. Whether you need to protect yourself against some chilly breeze while outside or just want to look unique while walking down the church and performing your wedding dance, bridal jackets and boleros lend a helping hand here.

At Theia and Oscar de la Renta we bump into some intricate bomber jackets; at Jenny Packham a sheer bolero with poetic sleeves comes into view; Ivy & Aster has included a blazer-style lace jacket in its bridal collection, while at Delphine Manivet more cozy cardigan jackets come to protect fragile brides.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Boleros & Jackets

14. Leaving Behind White Brides

It was Queen Victoria to bring into fashion all-white bridal outfits. Before that brides were free to wear gowns of any shade. That tendency seems to be coming back in a soft and powdery pastel manner and not only thanks to the spring 2017 bridal fashion trends. The shades of pink are leading the pack ranging from blush pink gowns at Houghton, Ines di Santo and Naeem Khan to a pink stunner at Peter Langner and an ombre warm pink ball gown with frothy texture at Christian Siriano.

Powdery blue bridal dresses also peep out here and there from Hayley Paige, Ivy & Aster to Jenny Packham and Monique Lhuillier. Don’t miss out on feasting eyes on a couple of silver dresses at Theia, a pistachio green floral one at Jenny Packham or a grandiose strapless ball gown in soft apricot shade at Romona Keveza.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Pink & Blue Wedding Dresses

15. Intricate Chokers

Recently neck-hugging chokers are happening at every turn from ready-to-wear collections to haute couture runways to romantic bridal lines. While the chokers preferred by Christian Siriano and Rivini by Rita Vinieris are white and fabric, Houghton, Naeem Khan and Oscar de la Renta have embarked on jailing their models’ necks with bejeweled, intricate chokers. So, if your bridal dress is conventional and embellishment-free, chalk it to your chokers to work wonders and flatter your whole complexion.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Trends: Chokers

16. Bejeweled Headbands

Contrary to our expectations, the spring 2017 bridal fashion trends have brought in more bejeweled headbands than tiaras. While tiaras are best fitted to work out any princess-worthy assemblage, the mission of headbands is to spread bohemian-chic vibes around. That is why we see them paired with tousled hair so frequently throughout spring 2017 bridal collections and are really impatient to try on this amazing bridal trend when that long-anticipated day comes around. We really have a broad choice in this sphere ranging from Anne Barge’s forehead bejeweled headbands to Elie Saab’s bohemian ones to Galia Lahav’s gilded stunners.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

The fall 2016 accessories trends can never be complete without the addition of the gorgeous fall/ winter 2016-2017 eyewear trends, sunglasses really, or glasses as a whole, depending on what the latest styles are calling for. We have often found that the ladies donning on these lovely additions to their ensembles look more composed and confident, cooler in the words of the colloquial speakers. It adds a dab of sophistication to a look, a touch of chic to the style you wish to portray. A woman in sunglasses becomes infinitely more attractive due to the eyewear, catching the gaze of all who pass by and perhaps quite a few whistles of appreciation.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends

As humans we love beauty and confident beauty is a must. Wearing the right shades to suit your features in shapes and colors that are all the rage? Well, that will only add to your own appeal among our societal members. When it comes to the fashion trends everything should be taken into consideration, from the way you style your hair to whether or not to include glitter anywhere; from the height of your heels to the fit of your clothes.

Of course, this also means that the size and shape of your eyewear is equally as important, along with the lenses, the rims, the embellishments or lack thereof. Things look so much better when you know you are working with the flow of fashion instead of against it, which is where these reports come in. Which of these looks are your favorites from the top fall/ winter 2016-2017 sunglasses trends?

For 2016, there are a few top trends and a few intriguing ones that also make the list. But there are a few things that need to be pointed out. Eyewear is not as big a trend for the fall season as we would expect, it is almost always worn with fringe, and there are no small lenses or frames to be found. The three facts become apparent rather quickly when sifting through the runway shows to find some awesome looks. While there are a lot of fun pieces, the fall 2016 sunglasses just don’t seem to have much place within the ensembles shown.

#1: The Oversized Sunglasses

Somehow, the oversized sunglasses are here to stay. There is nary a small pair of glasses seen on the runways these days and we are not sure how we feel about that. Some faces simply cannot take the oversized designs and would look more attractive with a smaller piece.

Nevertheless, it appears that covering up half the face with your glasses is quite normal, so experiment with everything from double rimmed aviators as seen at Carven to Michael Kors, where the frames are marble, the lenses are black and the bug eyes are really taking over. Prada’s double wire rimmed glasses are also quite the retro classic with a totally artistic twist, taking up half the features on the face.

Gucci brings in the oversized with its clear as well as colored frames, making the nerdy style look like a total blast. Yes, who does not want to pick up the Gucci oversized glasses anyway?

#2: The Funky Aviator Sunglasses

Aviators have been big on the runways for a while now. Also one of the fall/ winter 2016-2017 eyewear trends, they are a classic that just does not seem to want to go out of style. Opening Ceremony brings in the funky looks with the red colored lenses and frames, making things all the more interesting with the fact that the clothing and the glasses are perfectly matching.

Gorgeous double-rimmed aviators with brown lenses appear with the fringed hair at Carven, while Chanel’s clear lenses looked absolutely chic with the rest of the totally Chanel styles on stage. Ombre shades appeared at Loewewith a rather intriguing aviator look to them, complementing the vinyl clothing and the total lab look it produced. And then, of course, there are those oversized, marble-framed Karen Walker aviators that we are going to immediately get our hands on.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Aviator Sunglasses

#3: The Round Lensed Cat Eye Sunglasses

Huge on the spring 2016 runways, the fall 2016 eyewear trends also bring in this rather chic, utterly darling sunglass look, complete with dark lenses and bright rims, rounded in the former and rather feline in the latter areas.Max Mara appears in this style, the very feminine glasses complementing the rather masculine slouches of the pinstripe suits. Add in fringes and dark lips and you have sexy walking down that runway. At Fendi, the rounded lenses were all the more intriguing and quite the sexy ‘80s look that we have been enjoying for 2016.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Round Lensed Cat Eye Sunglasses

#4: The Bug Eyes

Rounded frames often give off the feeling of things being pretty bug-eyed when it comes to this style on sunglasses and this year it might just be one of the top fall 2016 eyewear trends to look out for. Bug eyes appear all over the place, kept in place with double wire rims at Giorgio Armani (where things are super buggy), while Kenzo’s bug eyes are pretty cool with the dual colors and darkest of dark lenses, the oversized frames really matching well with the clothing worn.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Bug Eye Sunglasses

#5: The Colorful Lenses

Color is a great thing in general but looks often out of place in sunglasses. Some designers have opted to have fully colorful sunglasses appear though, often matching with the clothing as well, including the red aviators seen at Opening Ceremony. Colorful and ombre mix together for an interesting look on the Trussardi line in Milan, the upwards slant and colorful tints really adding to the eyewear’s attraction. Oversized and gorgeous, it was nice to see the pinkish tint to the Banana Republic ombre glasses as well.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Sunglasses with Colorful Lenses

#6: Sunglasses with Clear Lenses

We saw a lot of clear lenses in the spring, playing second to the dark ones. For the fall/ winter 2016-2017 eyewear trends, it appears that the clear also has its space, sometimes with a slight gradient darkening at the top like atAnna Sui with her starfish topped lenses, or fully clear as with Gucci, the frames really playing on the animalistic approach.

Somehow, many designers have paired the different glasses with fringes and that looks delightful. Perhaps some of the loveliest clear lenses appeared at Chanel with nary a frame showing and all the beauty of an oversized pair without the constraints of plastic and colors to the chrome wiring. The nerdy look is positively astounding on some lesser known designer lines as well, particularly Custo Barcelona and Hellessy.

#7: Sunglasses with Super Dark Lenses

During the spring, the dark lenses were king. With good reason too. For the fall, the sun won’t be around as much as we suppose so that might be why it has given up its traction somewhat, but the dark lenses are forever awesome and the classics we simply cannot do without. Add in some really funky additions like not so chain-like chains to the mix, something noticed atBalenciaga, where the dark shades take on a whole new look.

When it comes to the super dark sunglasses to ward off the sun, we see large round pieces from Dior, bug-eyed double rimmed looks from Giorgio Armani, lovely chic and white rimmed glasses from Coach, extremely oversized and gently studded mock square cat-eye sunglasses from Gucci, embellished frames appearing on Miu Miu and circle lens with cat-eye ends coming into play at Max Mara. As one of the biggest fall 2016 eyewear trends, we see this included at Mulberry and Prada as well.

#8: The Ombre Lenses

They keep appearing season after season. They do not seem to want to leave the scene. The ombre lenses are a delight and very much to the liking of those of us who like to mix the dark and the light and sometimes the colorful with it all.

We see classic ombre lenses on double rimmed sunglasses over at Roberto Cavalli, more yellowish tints to the ombre at Chanel, and colorful rainbows come Trussardi with the combination of yellows and pinks and blues and purples; it truly looks amazing as such. Banana Republic featured some rather lovely ombre glasses as well, which included oversized lenses and rims, reddish tints and truly attractive designs.

#9: Sunglasses with Embellished Rims

If you want to play up the fall 2016 sunglasses and are rather adventurous in that nature, deciding that the more is the merrier, going for the embellished rims is probably your best bet. It does not have to have too much, just a touch of floral additions as seen at Miu Miu over oversized and rounded lenses, or it could be cute and clear lensed like the starfish found gracing the red rims of Anna Sui.

#10: Matching Sunglasses to Your Outfits

Remember when we saw handbags matching clothing and nails matching makeup? We see the fall 2016 sunglasses match the clothing and the handbags these days as well, something that looks rather intriguing when you throw in matching shoes as well. In Opening Ceremony’s case, it is all about the velvet, from zip up sweater to quilted skirt, thigh-high boots and a handbag all coming in red velvet, the red aviators only adding to the lovely effects of it all.

There is something inherently strange about matching the clothing and the glasses but sometimes it just works out so well, including the black lensed and white rims pieces from Max Mara matching with the black and white pinstriped suits worn on the catwalk.

#11: The Fun and Futuristic Sunglasses

There are a few really fun and almost futuristic eyewear designs for fall 2016 that we see on the runways, including the lovelies by Marni, which show off colors, shapes, overlapping lenses with the rims and a slight cat-eye for added effects. It is a lovely look and one we find appearing in multiple shades, from Neo style black and white features that are all about the thicker rim as per Coach, or popping up on the runway in wavy striped patterns on a circle lensed cat-eye, complete with matching clothing, at Fendi.

A favorite, more futuristic look is definitely the Tory Burch glasses with the navy blue lenses and butterfly wing designs, the frames etched with silver lines to offset the black and give it a more overall sophisticated appeal. And then, of course, there are the very geometric Neo style glasses that were also available for the spring and now come with thick frames and dark red lenses at Mulberry. The future truly does look fun with so many different designs.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Futuristic Sunglasses

#12: The Double Wire Rimmed Sunglasses

We have been seeing double rims on the sunglasses for a while now, the appearance of which has not always been unwanted either. On the contrary, it is quite lovable, especially since it offers extra support for the larger pieces without increasing the size of the rims.

At Roberto Cavalli, that takes on a lovely effect with the aviators appearing with thin rims that are accentuated by golden bars. This top look is seen in multiple colors and styles on the Prada line as well, playing with the frames as a whole and giving it a truly retro meets future feel.

One of the loveliest fall 2016 sunglasses when it comes to the double rims though is totally Trussardi, complete with marble frames and ombre lenses that bring in all the colors of the wind.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Double Wire Rimmed Sunglasses

#13: The Marbled Frames

Remember when marble looks were all the rage? It appears that the fall/ winter 2016-2017 eyewear trends have brought them back lovingly and enjoying playing with them in a mixture of dark and light on the different styles of eyewear. Trussardi gives us a colorful design for this, while it all takes on a wild feline feel when we turn to the square butterfly wing eyewear along with the large bug-eyed pieces as seen at Michael Kors.

Karen Walker’s dark lensed oversized shades are exactly what the marble frame doctor ordered it seems and they look delectable. However, it is the marble framed cat-eye pair that matches with the pantsuit from Christian Siriano that we keep on falling in love with.

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Sunglasses With Marble Frames

#14: The Clearly Plastic Frames

Translucent and plastic is what quite a few frames look like when we start checking them out on the different runway shows. They are literally all over and often look pretty amazing, such as the lovingly jeweled Miu Miu suglasses that we all certainly want to get our hands on.

More often than not, these frames are also translucent, clearly showing off the other side as well, coming in different colors, the red garnet looking especially good on the Gucci butterfly wings. At 3.1 Phillip Lim, it was not even the whole of the glasses covered with the plastic frame, but it sure was clear and slightly cat-eyed as well!

Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Eyewear Trends: Sunglasses With Plastic Frames

#15: The Butterfly Wing Sunglasses

One of the best fall/ winter 2016-2017 trends on the Fashion Week runways has been the butterfly wings that take on intriguing designs and just look plain awesome with the cat-like demeanors and overall larger span of the frames. Sometimes they also come in clear lenses as seen at Gucci, with translucent plastic frames and a nerdy attitude that all but screams that it is perfect for 2016. Since the year is about individuality, this is a style trend that we can truly appreciate.

Things take on a distinctly dark look at Prada as well, adding to the loveliness of the style with a rather retro twist. And then, of course, there is the futuristic loveliness of Tory Burch, with the chrome metal framing the true butterfly effect on glasses that are not so oversized as some other seem to be.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends

Categories:Other Brands

With the fall/winter Fashion Weeks come to an end, we finally have time to sift through all the different trends that have appeared on that runway. We loved seeing all our favorite designers come back once again, while we applaud the newer artists with a penchant for the fashion world and the business aspect of it all. It is always good to see new talent enter an old arena, bringing with him or her fresh ideas and a whole different manner of viewing the world. We watched the Fashion Week take place in New York, then in London, followed by Milan and ended up in Paris. We saw many newer faces in New York, while Paris was quintessentially Parisian, from the designers portraying their latest collections to the chic street styles. We fell in love with the clothes and the colors, the shoes and the accessories, the last of which included some incredibly gorgeous and positively wacky designed handbags. Sometimes we even forgot about the clothing shown off on those catwalks and focused solely on those pieces the models clutched in their hands or had thrown over their shoulders. We smiled and stared and coveted time and again. We are quite glad we now have the chance to get our hands on some. As a woman’s most trusted accessory, we are beyond excited about seeing some of these incredible pieces begin to appear in stores or available online. How can one not fall in love with these awesome fall/ winter 2015-2016 handbag trends?

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends

#1: Furry Bags

While we may not be able to wear those furry gorgeous garments until the temperatures begin to drop again, a Proenza Schouler bag can certainly be carried about at any time. We cannot help but bet the flap of the Jason Wu messenger bags, as it appears to be a pretty wolf cuddling up against you when you hold onto these pieces. Usually the fur is literally all over the bags themselves, some of them infinitely fluffier than the others, though it has been the texture that is important over the volume of the pieces. There are wispy poufs and shaggy prints, long hairy layers and full out shaggy dogs in our arms for the cooler seasons, though we’ll be happy enough to carry them about this spring and summer as well if they are available in stores. A bright blue puffball is all we see when we look at some of the bags presented on the Matthew Williamson show, held up by a chain, though the Misha Nonoo messenger bags in full fur are probably a better choice unless you plan on being whimsical. Marc Jacobs has it looking like flattened dogs are being carried under models’ arms, while the furry straps of the Salvatore Ferragamo pieces wrap around the arms for added safety. Fendi’s bright orange furry messenger bag makes the line-up, while we also see chic shoulder strapped Topshop looks grace the runway. One of our favorite fur handbags for fall 2015 is actually the leopard print Louis Vuitton oversized bags with the thin shoulder strap and the thick handle, the sexiness combined with the glamorous chic. It is certainly one look we find it altogether too hard to resist. Of course, there are many more designers who took the furry route, such as Elie Saab with his hairy blue designs that seemed to be a perfect match with his jumpsuits, Balmain’s tiny little clutches, Rimone Rocha’s rounded grip handled hairy loves, Marni’s pretty pieces, and Rochas’ double handles with the grip and shoulder strap.

#2: Easy to Grip

It is a major It bag for the fall and winter seasons it seems, as the very easy to grip handbags have made it onto the runway in loads. We loved the top handled trunk seen on the Louis Vuitton show, those ladies walking out with these pieces like they were carrying about their makeup cases; the front flab bags on Giambattista Valli looked quite pretty and easy to access as well, while having a handle to grip along with the strap to go on the shoulder; Miu Miu threw in thick handled handbags with snakeskin and leopard print detailing, which actually looked really great with the brown houndstooth patterning of the clothing; the Alexander McQueen alligator skin pieces with the gorgeous contrasting colors and a whole lot of pink had us salivating in a rather unfeminine manner, a look that was also prominent on the Dolce & Gabbana show, the Prada models bearing more alligator colored grip style handbags on the catwalk and the skin appearing in the hands of the Michael Kors ladies as well; the snakeskin, however, seems to have been inspiration for the softer designs of Marc Jacobs, while the softer looks are found on the Valentino and Christian Diorrunway shows. We are certainly not complaining, especially if the grip bags also have straps that make them versatile enough to wear as we wish to do so. Fendi’s structured bags were also quite easy to grip, the extra straps nowhere in sight. Between the Moschino boom boxes and the pretty little structured Prada designs, we understood well that we need those thicker grip handles, for they look so much better than any of the other straps… though the chains sure come close. We see the grip handles on Proenza Schouler furry bags, as well as Simone Rocha’s rounded hairy designs. There are even bags with matching clothing pieces that we have a grip on, from Tommy Hilfiger to Alexander Wang.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Easy to Grip Handbags

#3: Going Hands Free: Cross-Body Bags and Belt Bags

Not all the bags showcased on the runway shows were ones to grip. Some, more often than not actually, were all hands-free, from the striped animal prints matched with leather on the Celine women to the slouchy Chanel purses that look kind of like totes themselves, made with suede and black leather, the whole idea of buttons and pockets etched into their very creation. Huge chain links mark the Calvin Klein satchel that shines as the light hits the bag’s surface, while the crocodile skin of the Proenza Schouler looks are quite captivating themselves. We see many of the pieces held in hand or under arms, even though they have handles to slip the arms through, leaving the hands free to do what they wish, including the larger Dries Van Noten pieces, the plump and friendly tote by The Row, Lanvin’s black leather simplicity, or the crazy woman with a paper bag look on Maison Martin Margiela. No matter who sported these hands free designs, we know that we get to thank them for allowing us to keep using some of our favorites from years before, though we might want to upgrade to something a tad larger than what we have at the moment. The tote bags are also found on the Anya Hindmarch fall 2015 collection, with tags shown off and cute little printed figures appearing on its body.

#4: Reptile Skin Handbags

It wasn’t just within the fall/ winter 2015-2016 print trends or even the shoes that we get to mention the use of animal skins, from snakes to alligators and crocodiles, the colors varying greatly but often close enough to more natural hues. We are talking Proenza Schouler’s rather large satchel in its black and white version, looking quite perfect for the travelling woman, as well as the reptile texture of the Lanvin bags with the slip through straps for added support, the pieces folded so to save space. Miu Miu has large bags with funky chained handles and snakeskin sidings, while Marni’s little bags caught our eyes plenty. We see these skins on Bottega Veneta, Elie Saab, Nina Ricci, Prada, Christopher Kane, Giambattista Valli, and Hermes, among many others.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Reptile Skin Handbags

#5: Squared Boxy Handbags

It appears that this season it is totally hip to be square, at least when it comes to awesome handbags. We are still smiling with love for the Louis Vuitton versions of a makeup suitcase turned handbag. While every season a specific silhouette takes center stage, it appears that this particular look was vying for top spot. While some of the boxy bags were actually harder cases, others were soft, featuring four distinct points on each corner. There is much structure to these pieces and we know that they will last us much longer in the long run, especially the hard cases, though they probably will not be in style come next season. Lanvin’s grip and satchel bags fall into the softer category, while the snakeskin sophistication of Christian Siriano adds the perfect amount of dimension to the look. We have the Marc by Marc Jacobs pieces, which will be folding into the main line soon enough if the rumours are to be believed, and the cute little Olympia Le Tan fairy tale style pieces that seem to be from out of this world. The gorgeous alligator skin pink traveller’s bags by Alexander McQueen bring a bright smile to our faces, while the textured Roland Mouret clutches are perfectly classic in design. The square pieces come in smaller sizes as well, as attested to by the Anya Hindmarch label. We also see lovely beige looks by Karen Walker and the bright colors of the memory box from Dolce & Gabbana.

#6: There Be Fringed Handbags!

Fringes are a common part of the whole 1970s feel that we’ve been immersed in since the spring and summer season runway shows, so we knew for a fact that we would be seeing everything from dresses and skirts to shoes and handbags sporting the typical decade’s signature styles, including the tassels and the fringes. When looking through the Altuzarra collection, we found saddle backs with fringes hanging out on the shoulders of the models, braided rope straps and all. We have the camel suede Chloe saddle bags that we enjoyed seeing once again, reminiscent of our childhoods with the touch of fringe and all, while Moschino drives us wild with its boom box handbag design that is huge, graphic and full of graffiti wording. It even has a mock antenna to lend it more credibility. Ralph Lauren’s and Emilio Pucci’s thick chained handbags fall quite low when you consider those fringes framing the body of the tote design. Laced up Rebecca Minkoff bags get the full fringe treatment and look really good in those green colors, while tasselled looks line up the Tory Burch collection, while we feel in love with those suede colors on the Burberry Prorsumbucket bags. Herve Leger has some intriguing classy chic fringed clutch looks, though we must say that Ralph Lauren’s fun fringes are simply to die for. Of course, if you want to go multi-colored and quite unique, opt for the red, blue, yellow, white and black combination pieces found on the MSGM catwalk. Then again, you can always go fully Western and scream out a YEE HAA as you add a long fringed messenger bag to any outfit and ride across the plains. We see fringes all over, including on Sass & Bide handbags.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Fringed Handbags

#7: Classic in the Trimmings and Retro Bags

Classic bags are all over the place, taking into account some of the retro pieces while also including the shapes and styles that have always been around, one way or another. This includes the leather and chain entwined straps on the Chanel bags, as well as the Gucci versions with the double-chained straps and the classic prints across the front of the body, appearing like an accordion from the side. The Roland Mouret clutches are classic looks in black with textured leather bodies, offering a touch of elegance to any look. Wealso love the classic handbags by Dolce & Gabbana and the retro styles offered by Michael Kors.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Classic and Retro Handbags

#8: Glittery Handbags

We love seeing glitter all over the place, twinkling in the sunlight, different colors making up a rainbow or kaleidoscope, depending on the patterning. We loved seeing the sparkles and gold glitter on the garments and we most especially appreciated seeing them on the handbags that were walked down the runway. During the recent fashion shows, it was the tiny clutches and bags of Lanvin that caught our attention, while we love the gilded Chanel clutches and the bejewelled Dolce & Gabbana bags.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Glittery Handbags

#9: Handbags with Added Prints and Graphics

While many of the handbags seen on the Fashion Week runway shows were all about the colors and the materials or types of patterning skin used, others really just brought the focus on funky prints and graphics that speak a thousand words or nothing at all, depending on who is looking. The woman’s portrait peeking through velvet and crocodile skin in neon orange certainly caught our attention as the Diane von Furstenberg ladies took to the stage with their awesome apparel, this particular one paired with an electric blue outfit. Graphic prints can also include very simple designs, as is the case with the tote bags found on the Anya Hindmarch fall 2015 collection. Graphics come in the form of fairy tales and childhood dreams where Olympia Le Tan’s small lunchbox-like handbags are concerned, while we’ve gone pretty funky with the Moschino boom box style handbags complete with graffiti and a grip handle.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Handbags With Prints and Graphics

#10: Funky Geometric Shapes of Bags

We know that while the year has been full of olden trends and styles in every fashion category, particularly delving into the decade of the 1970s, we also saw quite a few more futuristic looks that appeared to be resonating with the human need to constantly move forward. While it’s nice to use scrap and remodel into modern pieces, it is also just as important, if not more, to envision the decades ahead of you, creating pieces that would later become the basics that are used in future collections when referring to past decades. That might be why we fell in love with the bright red colored bags from J.W. Anderson that had funky geometric shapes and an altogether futuristic feel to them. Those funky shapes come into play with the 3D look of the color-blocked Mary Katrantzou pieces, the inverted gold bar of the tiny Anya Hindmarch chain strapped pieces, and the Hermes clutch.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Geometric Handbags

#11: Adding Chains

Chains are a bit more classic in terms of straps that are used to keep the handbags hanging off the shoulders, the metal looking really good against the skin. There is a touch of sophistication in there, as the accessory offers the same feeling of vogue that golden or silver jewellery would. The Balenciaga bag with its boxy look and silver chain, in a gorgeous lighter blue hue that reminds us of mermaids and oceans is one of the best chain strapped handbags for fall/ winter 2015-2016. Chanel has always loved using chain links with leather entwined to give it an even more durable setup while essentially adding to its basic aesthetics. Dior’s stripy printed bags with the contrasting colors and the messenger flaps also offer us a glimpse of the gorgeous way silver chains can look on a single piece, while the double strapping of it makes for an interesting look overall. We cannot help but fall in love with some of the classier looks that are seen by designers such as the Gucci brand, the double silver chained links in hand as the models saunter down the runway with poise and grace befitting the fashion house’s ideals. Chains were added to pieces of all sizes, small and large, including the Anya Hindmarch teeny tiny versions of what appear to be handbags themselves but are a little too small for our tastes. The chains can be added to the straps in part as well, as we see on the slip though designed satchel handbags with the extra shoulder straps to help keep them in place. Chains are added to furry and fluffy handbags as well, such as those by Matthew Williamson and Misha Nonoo, Salvatore Ferragamo and Topshop, the latter having a rather intriguing combination of chain designs to really add a touch of chic to the mix. If we are going to talk funky, then the sexy outfits of Elie Saab paired with the thin chained furry blue little handbags are the best pieces that come right to mind. Dazzling Alberta Ferretti bags also make the line-up, breezing through with their gilded copper definitions and pretty chains for shoulder straps.

Not all the chains are delicate either, as we find quite a few chunkier looks that are made of plastic or Lucite and add a cool edge to a more standard carryall. Coming in bold colors and prints, these definitely leave a loud statement wherever seen, even more than the bags themselves. There are the gorgeous interwoven chains on the Miu Miu runway with the snakeskin sidings and intriguing bodies, the almost scary Calvin Klein saddle bags and the awesome fringed alternatives offered byRalph Lauren. Hands slip through chains on a Calvin Klein bag that might have otherwise been a clutch, all black and gothic to match the brand’s signature style.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Chain Strap Handbags

#12: Tiled Bags

We have always loved the pretty little tiles in our bathrooms that are used to create some pretty sweet designs with different colors and ideas springing up all over. The best part of these has always been the fact that the cloned square shapes are in the exact same sizes all over the walls, offering a respite for our eyes that yearns for symmetry. Chanel played up on this appeal this year and offered us some pretty colorful square tiled versions of its classic chain linked purses with the logo emblazoned in front. Some cool tiled bags for fall 2015 are also offered by Valentino and Louis Vuitton.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Tiled Handbags

#13: Brightly Colored Handbags

There are color-blocked bags and then there are those like the Dolce & Gabbana pieces wherein bursts of color are found in different designs. We cannot help but be drawn to such pieces as the contrasting primaries combine with the accentuating secondary hues to inspire such beautiful dreams within us all. Color blocks are seen on the Valentino bags as well, with the slip through bands helping keep the clutch style in place. Bright oranges seem to really have a place on the runway, which means that we might just grab a furry Fendi messenger bag in that color.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Brightly Colored Handbags

#14: Messenger Bags

We saw messenger bags as one of the bigger trends on the spring and summer 2015-2016 collection Fashion Week runway shows as well, meaning that now that they appear on the fall/winter seasons, they are officially a 2015 trend overall. From the gorgeous orange textured looks on the Dior catwalk to the furry flapped Jason Wu bags that may be small in size but are big in spirit, we have seen a plethora of stylish messenger bags on the runways lately. Date nights would look so much better with a color blocked Valentino messenger bag on the arm. We kind of like the furry messenger bags seen on the Misha Nonoo show actually, along with the extraordinary Chanel designs. Or you can ride into the sunset on a black steed with your long fringed Emilio Pucci bag thrown cross-body, enjoying the briskness of the air whipping against skin, your belongings safe in a stylish piece. Fringed messenger bags are very much in anyhow, as we see them on Sass & Bide as well.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Messenger Handbags

#15: Saddle Bags

Saddle bags are a common enough sight from the 1970s, just like the suede and the fringed options. When it comes to the Chloe look, we see the very typical saddlebag, smaller in size, worn as a cross-body or over the shoulder. There are the large and thick chained cross-body Calvin Klein pieces with the tan leather bodies to find as well, though they might not be as popular as some of the other trending looks. Altuzarra and Michael Kors also have stylish saddle bags for fall 2015.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Saddle Bags

#16: Envelope and Folded Bags

Making their way to the fall and winter as well are those envelope and folded bags that were quite big on the spring and summer runway shows presented last September. They are slightly bigger in size, and make for the perfect everyday handbag alternatives, especially the Victoria Beckham slip through ring styles, being also perfect for a night out on the town, partying it up or attending a classy gathering. The 3.1 Philip Lim label also offers envelope handbags that seem perfect to carry about to work, while the reptile skinned Lanvin slip through handled bags offer a folded design.

#17: Over the Shoulder Bags

While some of the fall 2015 trendy bags carried are grip or even clutches, a majority of those have straps in leather or metal links that can be thrown over the shoulders to carry the pieces hands free. Of course, that is also more than possible with the tote bags that are carried on the forearms, but we still see shoulder straps, even if we are looking at a grip styled purse. Examples of this are found on the Coach runway along with Dior, where we see messenger bags in bright colors and the double handle options, the logo found somewhere on the front flap. Even truly classic looks like some of the Gucci pieces are great with the chained straps over the shoulders, carried either in hand or keeping those parts free of distractions. Some of the bags with the slip through straps also have shoulder ones to help one out, just like the dual version of the grip with shoulders. The slip through versions that fall into this category include the darker blue suede Tod’s satchel as well, while tinier furrier bags such as the Salvatore Ferragamo designs have straps that are soft enough to wind around the arms as well.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Over-the-Shoulder Bags

#18: Bags with Words

While most of the handbags brought onto the runway stages have been more focused on color and texture, some designers have opted to focus on prints and sometimes even wording that differentiates a piece from all the rest around it. For example, the word Lucky is handwritten on a Coach bag in black letters, against a white background. Seeing the word alone brightens up our day. If you want some really crazy styles, opt for the huge Moschino bags with the graffiti writings all over the suitcase design or take the Vivienne Westwood route and really feel the effects of adding an exclamation mark to Get a Life! The little heart placed after this phrase does help diffuse things just a bit, but we have to say it is one of the most interesting batch of words placed on a bag this year yet.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Handbags With Word Prints

#19: Structured Bags

While not quite boxy shapes, some of the bags held by the models sashaying down the runways were quite structured in look, down to the stitching and overall designs. This was certainly the case with Fendi’s fall 2015 collection, where square patches made up the color blocked look of the piece, complete with fantastical fur and floral additions. Structured pieces also include smaller bags such as the fur flapped Jason Wu bags found on the runway. We have Prada with its fun colors and fun zip ends, though we love just about all of these, from the Rebecca Minkoff shoulder strapped pieces to the Hermes octagonal clutches.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Structured Handbags

#20: Keeping the Clutches

Another huge trend from the spring and summer 2015 runway shows, the clutch handbags have continued to appear on the catwalk in the hands of gorgeous women wearing incredible pieces. We see them everywhere as well from the textured leather designs of Ferragamo to the more classic designs of the Roland Mouret versions, boxy pieces with a strong appeal. Furry Marc Jacobs clutches have us thinking of lapdogs under our arms, while Balmain offers us fur covered clutches in bright red coloring. Those wolf fur hued Marni clutches are quite the hoot as well, perfect for any woman who likes to combine fur with clutch designs. We certainly cannot keep our eyes off the Mary Katrantzou clutches, nor those Herve Leger pieces that are so chic.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Clutches

Trend #21: Teeny Tiny Handbags

While many of the bags we saw on the runway shows, from the Moschino boom boxes to those lovely totes, were huge in size, we also found many tiny little bags that made it onto our list because of their cute designs and funky attitudes. One of such pieces was found on the Anya Hindmarch catwalk, appearing to be an inverted gold bar in a boxy little case. We have no idea what on earth would fit inside but definitely nothing bigger than a cell phone, if that. Soft bodied tiny handbags are found on the Salvatore Ferragamo runway show as well. Balmain’s tiny little clutches also fall into this category, since they are better fit to be a wristlet, while some tiny bags get huge accessories it appears when we look at the tasselled Rebecca Minkoff numbers.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Tiny Handbags

#22: Bags With Slip Through Straps

While we see many clutches without any straps whatsoever, we were also pleasantly surprised to come face to face with the more handy designs of the slip through straps that allow for a better grip on the purses we carry out on the streets. Designers seem to have definitely taken note of the need for some type of handle on the bags, giving rise to a whole array of choice to pick our favorites from, whether it’s the interesting notebook cover style knit bags with the gold bling by Thakoon, the blue suede satchel bags by Tod’s, while the gorgeous bling lined slip through ring of those Victoria Beckham bags are simply out of this world. Even Valentino offers a side strap to slip through other than its grip handle on top, though Vivienne Westwood is not so nice when she screams out for all to just get a life. There is the perfect professional style 3.1 Philip Lam designs as well, along with the color-blocked Valentino messenger bags.

Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Handbag Trends: Bags With Slip Through Straps

#23: Suede Bags

Suede handbags are all over the place! The fabric may not appear as much on the clothing worn by the models, though it still appears quite a bit, but those handbags are more often than not utilizing suede to some extent on their bodies. This includes the satchels in blue by Tod’s. Envelope handbags also appear in suede, such as on the 3.1 Philip Lam runway, while we are salivating over the perfection of those fringed Burberry Prorsum bucket bags. Of course, how can we not mention the gorgeous Ralph Lauren pieces with the large marble style link chain straps and the heavy fringed embellishments?

#24: Matching Perfectly

We know not to match our handbags to our shoes anymore, though some of us still prefer to keep to that tradition. However, it appears that we are in for a new upgrade on the trend, going matchy-matchy with our clothing and bags now. We are not talking about matching a red dress with a red clutch either or silver sequins with a shiny grey; we are talking exact matching colors, textures and designs between the dress we wear and the bags we hold in our hands. Alexander Wang gave us the rivets and quilting look that we so admire, while Tommy Hilfiger knows just how to match that plaid. Valentino matched up in flower petals or fish scales, while Chanel had 3D flowers gracing bags and dress. The Victoria Beckham soft wool cashmere pieces had us thinking this fall season would definitely be a warm one, while Vionnet’s black and white dotted furry combinations were quite pleasing to look at. Carven’s bright floral designs had us thinking spring much more than the fall season, while the H&M ladies carried around huge duffle bags that looked to be half their size. Versace signature stitching had all eyes turning that way, while Chanel’s tiled patterning was simply mesmerising.

#25: Bucket Bags

Bucket bag has been the It bag style of the entire 2015 year and it makes its way into the cold months as well. Available in different sizes, forms and featuring various colors and materials, bucket bags for fall 2015 come to meet the style demands of even the most capricious fashioniser! We have the structured black bucket bags from Salvatore Ferragamo, the modern designs by Balenciaga, the cross-body tiny options from Anya Hindmarch and the ‘70s inspired bucket bags from Lanvin. The futuristic looks by Kenzo and the funny cartoonish designs by Moschino are also quite lovely!

#26: Carrying Multiple Bags At a Time

It was back in the spring and summer 2015 seasons when we first witnessed this quite a weird, yet totally lovely handbag trend, when Fendi and Anya Hindmarch showed us ways of carrying multiple bags in different styles and sizes at a time. Now, the trend is exercised by our favorite Dolce & Gabbana, where we see fun bags with portrays of the traditional DG family carried together, as well as those more glamorous options embellished with rhinestones and gems. In case of J.W. Anderson three different sizes of circular handbags come attached to a single strap, looking quite funky and futuristic.

#27: Backpacks and Travel Chic Handbags

The modern fashioniser is a globetrotter, who tries to look chic when travelling wherever she goes. A lot depends on finding the most comfortable and stylish suitcase, as well as a backpack to carry when exploring the city she visits. Our favorite fashion designers have included stylish travel chic handbags and backpacks in their fall collections to ensure your jaw-dropping looks come the cold months. We love the color-blocked suitcase of Vionnet, the Moschino one with cartoon characters imprinted all over and the retro-style options from Michael Kors. When it comes to stylish backpacks for fall 2015, look to the collections of Anya Hindmarch and Philipp Plein.
