Trends AW17 | Battle Of The Boots: Designer Vs. High Street

Silver Lace Up Isidro Boots Aldo ShoesAs soon as Autumn starts, my focus shifts to footwear - boots, in particular.  So, now that the season is well underway and winter is creeping up on us, it's the perfect opportunity to pay some attention to the current footwear trends, as well as how much we're wiling to invest this time around.  Whether we splurge or save usually depends on how much wear and tear we reckon the boots will get, right?  Are they durable?  How often will you wear them?  How soon will this trend pass?  I've narrowed it down to five standout footwear trends this A/W that are appearing on both ends of the scale: designer and high street.  The question is, which gets your vote?

If you follow me over on Instagram, you'll know I've been stocking up on textures lately - we're set for many months of shearling, faux fur and teddy materials.  So for this look, it's a case of piling on last year's favourite accessories, as well as the new addition of this (very) pale blue textured jacket from Zara.

Having spent most of the past month obsessing over both silver footwear, as well as utility-style hiking boots, these Isidro Ankle Boots c/o Aldo combined the two styles brilliantly.  There are so many styles that can be crossed over, particularly sock boots and over the knee styles.  But what else is trending right now?  Designer Vs. High Street - let's go!

I doubt silver finds its way very often into any of our wardrobes, but with metallic footwear now appearing everywhere you turn, it's hard not to fall in love with the trend!  If you have a soft spot for utility-style footwear, but need more sparkle than hiking boots can offer (more on that later), silver lace-up ankle boots are your thing.  For sure.  Invest in Louis Vuitton's Spaceship Ankle Boots, or get the look for less with Aldo's Isidro Ankle Boots.

Not for the faint-hearted!  Red boots are sexy enough, but patent?  Steamy.  Play it right and you'll look as though you stepped off the runway, play it wrong and you'll be asked how much for half an hour.  If you're really looking to raise some eyebrows, give thigh-high red patent boots a go; splurge on the Fendi Rockoco ribbed-knit boots, or save with River island's OTK version.

S L O U C H    K N E E - H I G H S / O T K

Ever Since Saint Laurent Niki 105 Boots were revealed, slouchy knee-high and OTK boots have been popping up left, right and centre. Honestly?  I'm not a fan of the extreme slouch.  However, if you love the look and are ready to make a statement then you're in luck, because there are tons of options around (inc. Topshop Boxer High Leg Boots) - and ahem, without the ridiculous price tag...

I'm convinced now we're all magpies at heart, because as soon as the festive season kicks in we all go crazy for embellishment, right?!  With this in mind, embellished footwear is the way to go.  If you prefer a rounded toe and block heel, try these cosmic beauties.  Alternatively, if you're window shopping with your Christmas list in mind, add these Giuseppe Zanotte Glittered Sock Boots to your wishlist (also come in silver with oversized bows - SO cute).

H I K I N G   B O O T S


Love, love, LOVE.  Marketed as the season's 'most badass' footwear, hiking boots are probably the most comfortable trend we'll be coming across for a while (okay, besides teddy coats).  Dressed up or dressed down, they work.  Speaking of which, you could hit two trends with one style by opting for silver footwear, such as the lace-up Aldo platform boots shown above.  The trick is to lean towards utility-style, with emphasis on the style - or else end up looking as though you're on your way to climb Jungfrau.  Splurge on these Jimmy Choo Shearling-trimmed boots (serious daydreaming material), or save with high street alternatives such as the below Dune Perrinn Suede Hiking Boots.

So, there we have it!  Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this look, as well as the above five trends.  At some point or another, we've most likely all splurged on footwear.  But for argument's sake, do any of the above designer or high street boots stand out to you?!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  3. How can I say no to silver space-looking booties?? Love all of them! I’m gonna have to go with the LVs since they have that added “space” factor but really, any silver boots & I’m in love!

  6. Neither silver nor patent will make their way into my wardrobe, but I do own some hiking boots. True ones, not cute furry ones, so I guess they don´t count either?

  10. To be honest from the selection of boots you showed I like more the ones from Aldo,River Island, Dune London then the brand ones. I am always tempted to go to brand items because I would rather pay a good price and have something good quality that will last but this year I got a surprise . I payed lots of money for a pair of Yves Laurent and wore them once and the heel broke. Of course I got them exchanged but I did not expected that from a pair of brand shoes.

I love the idea of silver boots for eternity and you're looking like such a winter wonderland in your textured jacket and beanie. Too gorge! These trends are all so eye-catchingly beaut for the season ahead, I'm heart-eyed for the red patent boots and the slouchy knee highs are are giving me life too. All the autumnal amazing beaut babe <3

  17. Oooh, this is fun! I have so many opinions. The silver boots are a draw. The ALDO brand photo looks a bit dull, but they look just as fun and shiny as the LV pair in your own photos. Okay wait, let's save some time. They're all a draw. You're really good at finding dupes! Which is terrible for my bank account!

    Your outfit here is fantastic. I love the texture and layers. You're doing this so right lady!

  18. I'm so into textures too in this period! But here the weather is still too warm to experiment, so for now I'm just buying and collecting inspirations!
    I loooove silver shoes, and your boots totally rock, Gabrielle! More the contrast with white, fluffy jacket is so whimsical!
    You look great, dear, as usual!

  19. Love the outfit you're wearing - gorgeous! I love wearing boots in Autumn and Winter. I think so many of these are really good dupes for the designer versions. I sometimes like spending extra money on boots that I'm going to get great wear out of, but I would never spend hundreds on a pair x

  26. Dude this outfit is actually gorgeous, and I'm so in love with those boots. I love metallic tones, and these really draw in your attention. I adore all of these boots, and agree that they're one of the biggest things to change as the weather does. Like I have a pair of sturdy black boots I switched to a couple weeks ago, and they're so much nicer and warmer than trainers. Also, I adore jacket, I used to own one similar and these photos are making me nostalgic for my old jacket lmao.

  53. These silver boots are so unique Gabrielle, I love the quirky style and you don't often see silver too often when it comes to footwear, so it's really nice to see something different. They look fantastic on you teamed with your Winter clothing, really beautifully styled.

    I do love the other boots you've suggested, the red ones caught my eye!

    Great post and you look beautiful Gabrielle!
