From over-the-knee boots to fur details, check out the hottest & latest shoe trends for party, formal as well as casual women’s shoes! You’ll want ’em all!

Hey gorgeous! It’s almost Wintertime! And whether it’s for the Christmas parties, or New Year’s or weekend brunches with our friends or Sunday picnics with family, we have plenty of opportunities to dress up this season! And we need shoes for that! I mean, come on, can a girl ever have enough shoes? That’s why I made a biiiig list of the latest shoe trends, and where to shop them!! Ain’t that exciting?

This is based on my earlier article Latest Shoe Trends Fall Winter 2015-2016 | Women’s Shoes Trendiest Styles, plus I’ve been doing rounds of peeking into stores of all our favorite designers and brands! So, let’s find out what’s in and what’s out in latest shoes this season!!

Cut-Outs and Tie-Ups


Laser-cut and tie-up shoe styles were also in last season, and I wrote about it in Women’s Shoes: 12 Trendiest Styles for Spring 2015. But judging by, like, so many brands, it’s still a strong trend!

A. ‘Gillian’ Ghillie Pump: Topshop
B. Suede Sandal: Balmain
C. Kallie Leather Lace-Up Flat, Black: Michael Kors
D. Laser-Cut Knee Boots: Gianvito Rossi
E. Minka: Jimmy Choo

F. Suede Cage Boots: Gianvito Rossi Tassle

I was assuming that fringes would also be very in, but I realized after all so much of research that it’s actually the tassles that are taking the center-stage this season. And instead of the multi-tassle trend that was in last season, 2016’s hottest style is one long tassle!


A. Ottaka Suede Fringe Open-Toe Red Sole Bootie, Cappucine: Christian Louboutin
B. Viola 110 White Suede Crystal Embellished Sandals with Ostrich Feather Tassel: Jimmy Choo
C. Pompom & Tassles Leather Sandals: Dolce & Gabbana
D. Callie Platform Oxfords: Loeffler Randall
E. Suede Ankle Boots: Chloe

Latest Shoes: Fur Details

This is my favorite shoe trend for Winter 2016! I’m all for faux-fur and lots of brands these days are opting for faux-fur in their shoes! Anyhow, fur looks super classy and wintry and festive!


A. Ladine 100 Anthracite Metallic Grainy Leather with Fabric Feathers Ankle Boots: Jimmy Choo
B. Moon Boot Buzz shearling and shell snow boots: Jimmy Choo
C. Dolly 100 Silver Fine Glitter Pointy Toes with Fox Fur Pom Poms: Jimmy Choo
D. Hawthorne Ankle Booties: Michael by Michael Kors
E. Marlowe Fur Sandals: Monique Lhuillier
F. ‘Winnie’ Slipper Boot: Muk Luks

Latest Shoes: Heeled Loafers & Men’s-Inspired

Here’s one more trend that we also saw in Spring 2015. But for Winter 2016, the trendiest shoes are loafers with thick heels and flat-Oxfords or Brogues or boyfriend shoes.


A. Velvet Heel Shoes with Rhinestone Buckle: Alberta Ferretti
B. Macy Cut Out Tassel Brogue: Rebecca Minkoff
C. Mixed Stud-Embellished Leather Brogues: Dolce & Gabbana
D. Marmont Fringe Suede 105mm Loafer, Sun Orange: Gucci
E. Boy Meets Girl Wedge Oxford Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Latest Shoes: Kitten Heels

I’m not a big fan of kitten heels, because I prefer high heels, or flats (nothing in between)! But I have many friends who like to wear kitten heels and also rock them! So if you’re not so much for high heels, then this is the latest shoe trend for you!


A. Rockstud leather kitten-heel pumps: Valentino
B. ‘Lora’ pumps: Salvatore Ferragamo
C.Lurex BB Pumps: Manolo Blahnik
D. Patent leather slingback kitten-heel pumps: Miu Miu
E. Bellucci embellished lace pumps: Dolce & Gabbana
F. Allure: Jimmy Choo

Glitter and Metallic

Yet another trend that’s still strong since last season! But we love it because it’s very festive, and would probably contrast well with snow and the winter blues! My favorites are ombre glitters and metallic shoes!


A. Abel: Jimmy Choo
B. Adidas by Raf Simons
C. Willa Glitter Ballerina Flat, Gold: Kate Spade New York
D. Metallic Point Toe Pumps: Manolo Blahnik
E. Anouk: Jimmy Choo
F. Tessa 100 metallic leather ankle boots: Jimmy Choo

Latest Shoes: Over the Knee

I love over-the-knee boots! They had been associated with prostitutes since the Pretty Woman times, but since Anne Hathaway’s famous scene in Devil Wears Prada where she wears her ‘Chanel boots’ for her makeover surprise, they’ve been very very popular with every girl who loves fashion!! For Winter 2016, the hottest over-the-knee boots are suede, patterned, skin-tight leather, and even mirror leather.


A. Closer Thigh High Stiletto Boot: Nastygal
B. Rolling over-the-knee boots: Gianvito Rossi
C. Rolling High Cuissard over-the-knee boots: Gianvito Rossi
D. Highland Boot: Stuart Weitzman
E. Over-the-knee embroidered suede boots: Burberry Prorsum

Latest Shoes: Statement Heels and Back Details

Another one of my favorite latest shoe trends for Winter 2016 is statement shoes, especially with interesting heel details like studs, bows or heels in a different color than the shoe.


A. Embellished-Heel Ankle Boots: Dolce & Gabbana
B. Lexus Suede and Leather Wedge Sandals: Salvatore Ferragamo
C. Rosalind Crystal-Embellished Leather Sandals: Sophia Webster
D. Lilyth 120 Red Velvet, Satin Peep Toe Sandals with Tulle Bow: Jimmy Choo
E.  Blue Suede Notched Heel Gabi Ankle Boots: Alexander Wang
F. Patent Leather Ankle Boots: Alexander McQueen

Lace and Transparent


Lace was also seen last season, but for Winter 2016, you want to mix up lace with interesting details like zippers, or suede panels. Also transluscent materials like sheer or transparent shoes are also very trendy right now!

A. Lace peep-toe ankle boots: Dolce & Gabbana
B. Anouk: Jimmy Choo
C. ‘Rana’ Mesh Open Toe Bootie: Badgley Mischka
D. Black Lace & Suede Ankle Boots: Dolce & Gabbana
E. Gianvito Rossi Khaki and Black Transparent Pumps

So, those are the trendiest shoe styles for Winter 2016! Which is your favorite style? Lemme know below! 🙂 XOXO
