Stylish new footwear trends for autumn

Just about anything goes when it comes to this season's trends in footwear - military, masculine brogues, chunky wedges and clogs, feminine heels with bows and peep-toe ankle boots. To top it off, studs, buckles and fur details are must-haves.
  • Fluro colours are one of the hottest looks on the overseas catwalks. This look will always come and go, so don’t invest; just pick up a pair that won’t break the bank and enjoy them for a bit of fun for the season

  • Every girl should have at least one pair of classic heels in her wardrobe. Start with a black or nude-coloured pair – they will work with any outfit

  • For a masculine look that you can girly-up, go for brogues. This classic two-tone style is everywhere in shoe stores at the moment. It works well with a dress and blazer combo, or slouchy jeans and a fitted top

  • Masculine footwear styles are a key look this season, but you can soften it up by mixing them with feminine dresses and accessories.

  • Handbags are the icing on the cake when it comes to the perfectly put-together outfit, but they have been known to pull or snag delicate clothing. Always be aware of chain handles and stud details when choosing a new handbag

  • Here to stay, round-toe styles are flattering to the foot, especially if you feel self-conscious about having larger feet – the toe shape will give the illusion of a more petite size

  • Go girl power this winter in military-style boots embellished with studs, zips and buckles. Keep hem lengths above the knee, or opt for tights or leggings with a chunky long-line knit top

  • We loved our clog sandals over the summer months – they offered the latest trend as well as giving you height and comfort. Now you can wear that look all winter with a clog boot.

  • Get the perfect weekend look in flat boots, offering both comfort and style. Wear with denim or leggings, long-line knits, tunics and an overcoat.

  • To flatter your calves in black ankle boots, wear black tights. With bare legs, opt for a nude or tan-coloured boot.
