Footwear is in a stage of opulence.
According to Edited, the U.K. trend forecast firm, this spring’s taste for metallic footwear and the Fall ’16 run of velvet and brocade footwear will carry into the runways of NYFW, Sept. 8-15.
Going into fashion week, the firm advises retailers to maintain the momentum of “fancy footwear” by looking for styles with decadent uppers, slipper silhouettes and unusual heel shapes. New textures, iridescent finishes and patent white will update and lighten the look, Edited reported.
The pretty princess look will complement Edited’s list of the top fashion trends to watch at NYFW, which includes pleated slip dresses, floor length sundresses and tulle and sheer fabrications.
