Women's Style - Getting The Right Style Of Footwear This Winter

Winter is almost upon us again and those summer shoes are fast becoming unwearable. So, what styles of women's shoes will be strutting down the catwalk this season? You can't go wrong with aviator-style lace-up boots. They tend to be available in suede or brown leather and come in a popular lace-up style. The interior and trim tends to be finished with a sheepskin fleece, giving you the ultimate in warmth and comfort against the snow as well as being at the height of fashion.

For many people, boots aren't a terribly fashionable choice. You can still make the most of the sheepskin fleece effect and the suede look, though, as there are plenty of moccasin style ankle boots and shoes which are designed in the same style. Many even give you the option of keeping the cuffs up to keep the warmth and comfort locked in or turning them down to expose the fleeced lining for an extra fashionable look on days when it's not quite so cold.

Although fleece-lined boots and shoes may be really cool, they're not terrible stylish or sophisticated. Fear not, though, as long-leg black leather boots are still very much in vogue. If you're after that sleek and sophisticated look, you can't go wrong with soft black leather or chocolate brown suede. These types of boots are comfortable, sexy and stylish. The heels aren't very large this season either, so you shouldn't have any difficulty walking in your sexy new boots.

It's boots, boots, boots! Ski boots are going to be very popular this winter due to their style and practicality. It doesn't matter if you don't intend to go skiing - this look will turn heads wherever you go. The outsides are finished with a quilting style and use lace-ups on the front while the insides are lined with warm, soft, waterproof material to ensure practicality and style. Pink and white leather are expected to be particularly popular.

While boots may be comfortable and practical, they're not always best for those occasions where you want to appear sexy and stylish or sophisticated. Peep toe shoes are still popular and look great in black leather or colored suede. Leather is likely to be far more practical throughout the winter months as it is relatively easy to clean and tougher to damage in the wet than suede. Peep toe shoes are a great accompaniment to dinner parties or high class occasions.


He Got Sole - In His Shoes That Is

Footwear Must Haves For Summer

Summer footwear reflects the key summer trend this year, the nautical theme. You will find navy, white and red aplenty, with nautical stripes everywhere as well as seaworthy symbols like anchors, rope detailing and shiny brass embellishments.

The deck shoe and the tennis shoe are making a comeback on the high street. Both tie in nicely with the retro travel trend, which looks back to English ladies and gents taking the grand tour during the 1920s and 30s. The deck shoe also incorporates the nautical theme and you will find a range of colours and finishes available. We recommend woven leather for a fresh take on an old favourite.

Add some height with a pair of wedges this summer. Always a summertime favourite, wedges really are back for 2010 and are higher than ever. Opt for a peep toe to keep the look fresh, and look out for natural finishes that tie in with the nautical and retro travel trends, such as rope finish heels, striped canvas and summery cork.

When it comes to sandals for summer, the gladiator is still where its at. This summer they are more dramatic, with over the top strapping, sometimes right up over the knee. Look for killer gladiator heels too, which add a bold statement to any summer outfit, especially with big buckle embellishments and studs.

Tying in nicely to the vintage travel theme is the brogue. These have been around since last year, but this summer they take on a lighter feel with a larger variety of colours and finishes now available on the high street. Light tan and beige are great for a classic look, but also watch out for coloured suedes for a softer summer feel.

If you are fed up with pumps and sandals, look out for espadrilles. These are all over the high street right now and are a great comfortable alternative for the summer. The colour and print finishes are almost endless, from nautical stripes to summery pastels, polka dots to vibrant neons.

Heels for summer reach towering new heights thanks to the return of the platform. Platforms may have been huge, literally, in the 70s and had something of a revival in the 90s thanks to those Spice Girls, but for this year they are far more refined. Think slimmer platform soles teamed with killer stiletto spikes.

We still cannot get away from the shoe boot. This summer sees a variety of new styles hit the high street, particularly slouched, pale suede finishes, extra strapping and buckle detailing and brogue styles that incorporate a cool 2 inch heel.

These key women's footwear trends for 2010 were brought to you by Josef Kazan. She recommends heading to the New Look website for the latest sandals, wedges and heels for summer 2010, covering all of the seasons key trends.


A Variety Of Designer Shoes Online

Of course by now just about anyone who owns a computer, or spends any amount of time in an Internet cafe knows that there are better deals to be had online, but not everyone is aware that this also includes a huge assortment of women's designer shoes and boots.

It's all the very latest styles too, and in fact you have a better chance at being the first to see what this season’s lineup is online than browsing your local mall. You see, online retailers can have them available in their photo gallery as soon as the same day they're released to the public by the design house.

Even so, hop scotching around the Internet in search of the most absolute rock bottom deal on ladies designer shoes and boots is one of the best ways to get taken by knock-off artists, otherwise known as counterfeiters. However; don't take this to mean that you can't bargain shop. It just means that you need to follow a few simple rules.

For instance rule #1 is to check that country of origin that any site you're considering is based out of. You see, it's now a law that all websites must have the operators location posted in plain sight somewhere on one of its pages. So then what are you looking for when you're checking this info?

You're looking for sites that are based out of Asian countries like Thailand, the Philippines, and especially China. Or worse yet, a site that has no home address listed at all. You really should simply avoid these types of online marketing venues, no matter how good the ladies designer shoes and boots look in the photos.

Authentic pictures are easy to snag online, so they in no way should be taken as an accurate representation of any designer products that they are selling. Also if you have yet to get a close up look at counterfeit ladies designer shoes and boots, you would be amazed at how bad the quality is. In fact you can buy better quality shoes from the bargain isle at K-Mart.

In the end, your best bet is to connect up with a reputable online vendor that has the feedback to verify their track record, and there really is no better source of this type of info than feedback. Feedback tells you how previous customers felt, and that's important.

Also make a point of reading what the sales feedback is for because it may be that a site is just getting started selling ladies designer shoes and boots and their feedback is related to a completely different line of products. This is something that can slip right by a lot of people.

Lastly if a deal on ladies designer shoes or boots sounds just too good to be true, then more often than not, it is. Of course sellers cook up all kinds of stories of how they fell into a bulk order of shoes or boots and that they need to unload at a discount. Just try to be skeptical as you read them.
