Biker boots are probably one of those essentials every girl’s had for years, but since last season they became a huge trend for fall and winter. Studs, buckles, chains…everything is possible on the shoes these days. They are quintessentially rock and roll worn with skinny jeans, leather pants or even a mini dress to give that perfect touch of edge.
Quick edit on what’s available in stores now, lots of beautiful sandals and colourful pumps to choose from:)
Originally created as a man’s riding boot in the 15th Century, in the latter part of the 20th Century the style was redefined as a fashion boot for women.
Burgundy colour has been on the top since last autumn and these season seems to be even more popular. Whether you call it maroon, oxblood, bordeaux or just plain burgundy, there is no doubt that this colour is an absolute essential addition to every woman wardrobe. The deep red tone is as versatile as it is flattering, pairing exceptionally well with many other colours like grey, camel, black, forest green and navy blue, which is my favorite combination.
There is lots of shoes to choose from including some gorgeous designers pairs (which may ruin your wallet 🙂 and some more ‘pocket friendly’ pairs from high street shops that are also very trendy. Here are my picks for this season….

It’s time to start thinking about new shoe trends for this upcoming 2013 fall season. Although collections hit the stores early that made me wanted to buy boots at the beginning of the August while it was still warm, but I have resisted the temptation and waited until now. Stores are getting flooded with ankle booties, which seem to take over this season completely. Fashion is going dark so pack the bright colors for the next summer and it’s time to hit the stores for some wardrobe update.
Here are my fave styles from high street shops… I think I will go for Kurt Geiger Stage booties, which ones do you like?
