Best of New York Fashion Week (so far)

With London Fashion Week setting to kick off this week I have decided to round up the best of NYFWs footwear (so far). Its safe to say everything is still about tassels, fringing, weaving and flats - LOTS of flats! other great trends to look out for like flatforms, sliders and sports luxe footwear are totally effective for the summer wardrobe look. Like most fashion it goes in cycles, and since the summer just gone was all about flower power and the 70s its only natural that the next cycle will be all about the boho chic look with tassels taking over! The tassel trend in my eyes never gets old, I like to incorporate my wardrobe with classic tasseled accessories (handbags and shoes mostly) because along with most summers comes festivals which inevitably means tassel galore - I mean no festival/summer is complete without them! below are some of my favourite footwear shots straight from the runway!

Key Trends:

Flats - lots of different toe caps although pointed dominated. Victoria Beckham along with Derek Lam introduced a square toe which were beautiful with their respective collections.

Flatforms and Sliders - EVERYWHERE! easy to wear and perfect in block colours, sports luxe is what it is all about or if you have a more subtle look a pair of very minimal sandals (skinny T-bars and straps)

Heels - stiletto heels, with and espadrille look  laces up featured heavily of which I'm pleased about!

Standouts - Alexander Wang! a 'dark' take on the summer, lots of black with rounded studs (when does he ever get it wrong?) Givenchy - they have to be mentioned just for the fact that they caused a huge commotion on the runway for some of the models - untied/super long laces was the feature and boy did it cause some havoc! Nicholas K - The collection has a great colour pallet and this reflected in the runway - footwear mostly focusing on sports luxe sandals which were just gorge! Tanya Taylor - absolutely amazing range of shoes, love the acrylic heel and the appliqué/colour ways on the skinny straps!
