Top Shoe Trends: AW17 Edit

The bad news? London Fashion week is over once again. The good news? There are plenty of new AW17 shoe trends flying around to keep us covered for the entire season.

From glitzy sparkles to knee-high styles, we’ve been seeking out the biggest 2017 shoe trends as we head into the autumn winter season. And we’ve even matched them up to some very special styles from the designers here at Gabor, so you can grab a piece of the trends for yourself without the catwalk prices.

The Cap Toe

One shoe trend that has well and truly withstood the test of time is the flattering cap-toe style. Returning to the catwalks time and time again, the laid-back elegance and versatility of this style makes cap-toe shoes easy to wear for both work and play. Pair them up with a chic skirt or smart trousers for the most on-trend workwear look, or match them with casual denim like blogger and interior designer, Aimee Song (pictured above), and create a daytime look with an extra touch of class.

Liking the look of this trend? Here’s our answer to the cap-toe style, the Gabor Islay casual shoe.

Crafted from the finest leather materials, the Islay style strikes the perfect balance between the casual comfort of the ballet pump and the elegance of the court shoe. And of course, there’s the gorgeous patent cap-toe taking this shoe straight into the trend charts and onto your must-have list for AW17.  Find them in your size.


The Sparkle

The sparkle and shine trend has exploded back onto the catwalks this AW17 season, and it’s easy to see why. Nobody can resist a bit of glitz when it comes to creating the perfect evening outfit, and this is one of the easiest trends to pull off yourself. Keeping it subtle, like these stunning Victoria Beckham glitter court shoes (pictured above), is a great way to gently lift the glamour level of any outfit by several notches.

Looking for your own bit of sparkle? Try the Gabor Bathurst Court Shoes:

With the Christmas party season rapidly approaching, now is the time to grab a little sparkle. Staying with the subtle styling, the Gabor Bathurst Court Shoes are embellished with delicate self-coloured rhinestones that add just the right amount of shine. Wear this trend with anything from your best party dress to your favourite black denim for an effortless evening look. There’s not much you can’t make the sparkle trend work with and, if you’re anything like us, you’ll want to get your glitter on as often as possible this season. Get the look here.


Ankle Boots

Yes, another firm favourite on this year’s autumn winter trends list is the ankle boot. This style will simply never die; it’s just too good. Delightfully easy to wear, the ankle boot trend is one of the most accessible looks on the catwalk, and is widely loved by celebs the world over. Check out Hilary Duff (pictured above) rocking a super casual heeled ankle boot and ripped jeans combo, one of the many ways to wear these versatile boots.

Want some for yourself? Try the Gabor Lilia Chelsea boots on for size.

There are so many styles of ankle boot out there, from flats to cut-outs, but we love the chunky block heel and stylish stitching of the Lilia for the AW17 ankle boot trend. Just like Hilary’s laid back ensemble, the Lilia boot is perfect for pairing up with casual jeans and a leather jacket, but can work just as well with dresses and skirts with that lovely heel.

The patent shoe trend is alive once more for AW17 and the world is going mad for it. After all, who can resist the smooth glossy finish of patent leather shoes? Kate Moss certainly can’t, seen above sporting a fabulous pair of patent loafers with a sleek black outfit that we absolutely love. Perfect for enhancing any smart casual outfit, particularly for the office, patent shoes add an extra layer of sophistication to your look, and we know exactly where you can find some. Right here at Gabor, actually.

Introducing the Gabor Alice shoes, the patent leather shoe with attitude. With these, you can get in on the patent trend with the bonus addition of this gorgeous croc effect leather to add extra glamour. Wear these with your favourite office dress or trouser suit and score some major fashion points this autumn and winter season. Find the Alice shoes in your size here.


Tall Boots

Keeping the ankle boot company on the catwalk this season is the elegant tall boot trend. As well as being highly popular with celebs everywhere, including the likes of Olivia Palermo, Jessica Alba and Kate Moss (pictured above), the knee-high boot is the perfect autumn and winter boot choice. Keeping your legs warm, dry and bang on trend, tall boots well and truly deserve their place on the catwalk.

Want to find yourself a pair just like these? Try the Gabor Brook M long boots.

Embrace the long boot trend without the catwalk prices with Gabor this season, with these super stylish Brook M boots, inspired by the classic riding boot design. On the outside you’ve got the stunning quality leather, which comes in three classic colours, and on the inside you’ll find comfortable in-socks and a cosy microfibre lining, perfect for staying warm in the approaching winter months.
