This season’s key style trends, now at Mikko Shoes
As we have just embarked on the most surreal time many of us will likely have ever experienced, the simultaneous change in season reminds us that nothing is constant. This too, as they say, shall pass.
We wanted to share a short overview of the top footwear and accessory trends that you’ll see at Mikko!
First, let’s begin with the autumnal key colours. On top of the classic winter essentials, there is freshness to the season with a richness of boutique browns, that include camel, cognac, tan, plus our personal favourite – burnt umber. Our wintery bright is a stunning new shade of honey mustard. An easy neutral, mustard is a great colour for many as it is complimentary to so many tones, adding that little bit of vibrancy to your day. Wear with denim or cobalt blue tones for a contrasting yet harmonious palette, or work the shade in tonally with the browns and neutrals of the season.
For those who love a little pattern, winter takes a moody turn on the animal print trend with luxurious depth and texture. Leopard print is present in different tones, shades and finishes including metallic, bringing sumptuous tactility to classic winter styling. You’ll spot that snake texture also continues to feature this season too.
After a short hiatus, it is a delight to see a return to classic and uncomplicated essentials in the form of the comfortable ballet flat. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with this understated yet glamourous silhouette. The new season range includes an abundance of ballet flats that offer interesting textures, prints and embellishment that exude elegance and Parisian flair.
If you’re keen to be bang on trend, the latest western trend is an exciting silhouette to consider. Personified by square toes, contoured sculpted block heels, heel trims and interesting leather textures, wear this look with classic blue denim and a crisp white shirt, or with a midi-length skirt and your favourite cosy cable knit. Combat style boots also feature and will be a nostalgic treat with their mid-length lace up boots.
When it comes to failsafe styles, wedge heels are a wardrobe staple though they have been given new life this season. Ultra-wearable, wedges provide stability and comfort, while adding sleek styling. This season wedges have an architectural element – sometimes stemming from Western inspiration, while many tick the boxes of being lightweight and weather-proof for added practicality. Wear with a blazer and a slim pant for a chic look, or be more playful with cute ankle socks and a midi-skirt.
Finally, we’ll share our must-have criteria for every style we stock, this season and every season – comfort! Nothing boosts confidence like stepping out in quality shoes that support your feet and will last for seasons to come. While every shoe is made to deliver comfort, we also have wide feet options, styles that give extra arch and ankle support, plus orthotic friendly styles.
