It’s time to celebrate all that is wonderful about the impending cooler season – and in our world, that means exciting new footwear trends! If you’re looking for a little inspiration before planning your new season wardrobe, you’ll be interested in our highlights of the top style trends for AW21.

In the colour department, Eden celebrates the stately, yet indulgently rich shades of olive, sage, forest and military green. Great as a feature colour on a boot or sneaker, or wear a full tonal look for a chic, autumnal feel.

Directional, wearable and trans-seasonal, Enhanced Neutrals encompasses mohair to grey marle and every beautiful subtlety in between. Understated and stylish, mix various shades, fabrics and textures for a luxurious look. With a focus on texture, the Mixed Materials trend uses contrast to add indulgence and richness to winter dressing this season.

If you’re in the mood to brighten up your wardrobe, plump for the Very Cherry trend. With a distinct maraschino glow, our red-lead styles pair beautifully with navy, black and all the neutrals in your wardrobe.

And in our dreamiest palette this season, La Dolce Vita offers decadent hues of vanilla, nougat, biscuit and toffee – romantic and warming, bringing a cosy homeliness to the season. Pair this colour palette with shades from this seasons’ must-have hue, Rich Mocha, for a co-ordinated tonal look.

For key styles, those who love flats will adore our Luxe Loafers offer this season. They are the perfect balance between polished and comfortable, an essential for every wardrobe. As fashion takes a less corporate turn with a reflection on world events, it’s about comfort, versatility and practicality whilst still feeling chic in the process.

The cool and sophisticated Combat Boot is the must-have this AW21, whether in lace-up, or simpler pared-back look with a stylish lug sole.  Our fav is the Emma from Evaluna, check it out here.

If you have an eye for detail, you’ll have noticed the chic detailing this season.  Key trend In The Detail will elevate your everyday style with gorgeous metal trims, buckles and adornments – add a fabulous handbag for a chic look.

And for those off-duty moments, the Sporty Chic collection of versatile and edgy wedges and lace-ups is the perfect combination of form and function – yes, sporty can mean sophisticated!
