Following the dominance of the shoe boot in recent seasons, the trend has now morphed into a something with a softer, more nostalgic edge, as Ginger Trend Consulting for Mudpie explains
Eryn Behan is director of Ginger Trend Consulting, the exclusive agent for UK trend forecaster Mudpie and its online platform MPDClick, and a provider of fashion forecast services and consumer insight trends to the fashion and interior design industries throughout Australasia.
Lace-up shoe boots provide a youth driven juxtaposition to the seasons feminine looks. Seen on the S/S 10 catwalks by junior designers such as Rag and Bone and Behnaz Sarafpour.
This look incorporates a rural country feel, further supported by the use of hard wearing fabrics such as leather, straw or burlap.
Use a dark and/or neutral colour pallet to keep the heritage country feel. To get this look also consider using woven materials and punctured patterns.
