craving: statement boots

8 October 2017

Statement shoes is hardly a new idea to fall upon the fashion world with velvet and hi-shine boots in particular having been around for many years. However this year has seen an increase in the stand-out shoe and the way it's worn. With basic and sport luxe outfits becoming, what seems like, more widely worn than ever before it's a good time for the statement shoes to step into the limelight. Focussing on boots in particular because that's where my mind goes when thinking of any shoes, not just the stand-out styles it's clear that the high street shops and online store have upped their game recently and are offering a variety of gorgeous accessories that weren't designed to blend in.

This particular collection that attracted attention from the mountain of variety on category pages are from Zara, New Look, Kate Spade, Missguided, Asos, Topshop, Nasty Gal and others. (All links are listed below)


When it comes to accessorising there really aren't any rules anymore, especially when you're looking to make a certain piece a distinct part of the outfit. So rock a pair of bright shiny purple boots with your favourite LBD and top it off with a fur coat if you're feeling that little bit extra or try some sequin heeled boots with a go-to skinny jeans combo that you wear regularly so as to switch your outfit up and make things a bit more interesting. Day to day wearing statement shoes can still be done so pop on some studded sock boots or floral embroidered heeled boots with a midi skirt and frilly blouse for work.

The possibilities for wearing a striking shoe are endless so long as you have the confidence to do so and with more and more people rocking the trend it's definitely becoming easier to brave it.


A couple of pairs that didn't make the cut but can still make a statement in their own right are these gold heeled pink boots from asos and black lace insert boots by River Island.
