Comfortable and fashionable footwear for this autumn/winter.
The last year has seen a rise in party wear and glamour, with an increase in people’s enthusiasm for dressing up again. This alongside the demand for practicality has led to many 2022 trends being formed around a shoe that can transition from day to night.
In this post we go over the most important A/W 22 trends to upgrade your style accompanied with the ideal Calla shoe for every trend and occasion.
An occasion wear wardrobe revamp is due after spending 2 years inside. What’s a better way to start than to grab a fresh pair of shoes to pair with multiple outfits. Metallic neutrals are going to be everywhere in the next year as the rise of the digital world influences designers. Luxurious shades of gold silver and bronze can be paired with almost any colour and create an outstanding outfit paired with a same shade bag. Calla’s ‘Camilla’ boot is in a show stopping silver. This boot is a must have for Autumn/Winter, bringing you comfort, warmth and style. Or for an all year round shoe, Callas ‘Emily II’ comes in silver and is ideal to pair with a dress or trousers and a matching bag. However, if you’re not feeling like diving into the metallics just yet Emily II also come in a stunning black for an elegant look.
In addition, a huge focus for A/W 22 is on Classics. With the demand for sustainability increasing, timeless items are great staples for the wardrobe. High quality materials and designs that can be easily transitioned provide longevity and investment worthy pieces. Callas ‘Isabella II’ flat is a great example of an investment worthy classic. Coming in multiple classic colour ways there’s a shoe for every outfit. This shoe would look great dressed up with a midi skirt or formally with a work outfit.
If you’re looking for something a little warmer, the knee-high boot is here to stay. A core item with trans seasonal design and neutral colours is a showstopper this Autumn/ Winter. Calla’s ‘Georgina’ boot in black is a great example. This boot is ideal with jeans and a top for day wear or jazzed up with a dress and blazer/ oversized jacket for an evening outfit. Alternatively opt for a slouchy design such as Calla’s Natalie II in black or almond for a soft suede feel.
The Chelsea boot remains at the forefront of the boot category, being an extremely popular style. The Chelsea boot can easily be dressed up or down.
For the perfect staple opt for Calla’s ‘Miranda’ boot in bone or black. Day wear, walking, shopping or even paired with a skirt/ dress for an evening look is ideal for this boot. Miranda in bone would be the perfect addition to a tonal outfit.
Ankle boots are another classic shoe fitting under the reworked classics trend. For a classic ankle boot, ‘Lorna’ is an outstanding every day boot with an angled heel and lace up detailing. Or for something a little bit different updating an ankle boot with a simple wedge heel creates the perfect comfortable whilst trendy boot. Calla’s ‘Louise’ boot provides a mid wedge for comfort and comes in a stunning tan suede.
Alongside classics, Academia inspired footwear is also at the forefront of A/W22
The modified penny loafer is illustrated by Callas ‘Lucille’ loafer, a classic shoe including contemporary adaptations such as chunky chain hardware. The rise of jewellery detailing is here and the ‘Lucille’ loafer taps straight into this trend with a subtle statement piece. The loafer would look great paired with suit trousers and a blouse for a formal look. Other products with similar details include Isabella II.
Traditional heels are gaining a new look. Sculptural heels add a creative and fashionable flare to your occasion wear wardrobe. Calla’s ‘Mala’ heel provides comfort with a low and modern twist. ‘Mala’ comes in a nude or black upper with a wooden heel, ideal for casual or formal occasions. The 'Mala' heel would look amazing with a bag which also had wooden detailing.
