Women who want to look perfect in any situation are aware of the importance of paying attention not only to the choice of main garments, but also and above all to accessories. Handbags, hats, belts, jewelry – all these elements play an important role and can make the style more personal and stylish.
Designer shoes for women are one of the accessories that can completely transform an outfit. From trendy ballerinas to sophisticated moccasins, there are countless models that are presented at the various fashion shows every season, such as those by Valentino Garavani.
They are available in many styles and can add a touch of color and vibrancy to a classic outfit or make a casual outfit more elegant and sophisticated.
Let’s find out together which luxury women’s shoes are a must in the wardrobe of those who always want to look perfect without compromising on fashion and personality.
The latest designer women’s shoes: ballerinas
Ballerinas are shoes of timeless elegance, characterized by a very thin sole and sometimes complemented by straps that wrap around the ankles or ribbons that delicately wrap around the calf. Their appearance is reminiscent of ballet dancers’ shoes, but the addition of embellishments, inserts, original motifs and the use of increasingly different materials have made them ever more refined and unique.
The woman who loves fine and refined luxury can now complete her outfits with the ballerina model that best suits her style and environment. For example, the young woman who wants to look elegant at a romantic dinner can choose delicate platinum-colored shoes in laminated nappa leather with a bow and a strap wrapped around the ankle, like the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Ballerina model, while the career woman can opt for a black or beige patent leather flat, with or without a strap.
To make the style even more modern and personal, you can also opt for designer ballerinas adorned with punk-style studs or fine crystals.
Luxury sneakers are timeless shoes that, with their sporty and sophisticated look, can complement not only smart casual outfits but also formal outfits with great originality. If you dare, you can also combine this type of shoe with formal dresses and even with a wedding dress.
Platform or wedge sandals are among the most popular styles of this period. Inspired by the fashion of the 60s and 70s, these styles, which are often decorated with metal bands and studs, including colored ones, can be worn with wide pants, palazzos or flared pants.
If you want to wear this type of shoe in the office or on formal occasions, e.g. at a business lunch, you can opt for models with classic soles that are all white or decorated with lettering and logos.
For more sophisticated chic casual looks, green light also goes to models with elegant and sporty features, not necessarily white, also enriched with original optical motifs.
Finally, the elegant woman who is also getting married for a special occasion such as a wedding can opt for luxurious, crystal-studded designer sneakers to go with a classic wedding dress or a more modern jumpsuit.
Moccasin, refined and elegant
The Valentino Garavani VLogo and Rockstud loafers are one of the current must-haves. Elegant and sophisticated, they are the perfect choice for anyone who wants to add a special touch to their outfit.
Black, made of calfskin, completed with studs and inserts, the characteristic moccasin can be worn with classic jeans, soft culotte pants, short skirts and the ubiquitous matching long coat.
The wide variety of styles it can complement with class makes it the perfect choice for any occasion, from shopping on the high street to a classic day at the office.
Shoes with a high platform
Not only sneakers, but all types of shoes can gain charm and personality this new season thanks to high or ultra-high platforms. As the various models by Valentino Garavani show, platforms, platforms and wedges slim the silhouette and convey personality and boldness.
The ankle boot, worn with straight-cut pants with a soft top and elegant blazers; the over-the-knee boot, ideal for a sophisticated, sporty look with skinny pants or a skirt and trouser suit; the décolleté, also in an ultra-colorful version, worn with classic suits or over-the-knee dresses; the sandals, perfect for a fresh, fashionable look. Depending on the style, every woman can easily find the right luxury high platform shoe for her.
The luxury shoe with studs
Luxury and elegance can merge in a unique and customizable accessory such as a shoe with elements of strong and transgressive character, without losing charm or mystery. On the contrary, such inserts can make designer shoes even more sophisticated and spectacular, turning them into the true stars of the outfit.
The trendiest inserts include studs, elements of punk culture par excellence, which create a truly original look when combined with luxury shoes.
From ballerinas to boots, from sneakers to pumps, luxury studded shoes can be worn not only in informal contexts, but also in the office and in all those formal situations that require a simple outfit without sacrificing personality.
Unique motifs that convey charm and personality
Trendy luxury shoes do not necessarily have to be monochrome, but can also feature unique motifs alongside interesting inserts, such as the Valentino Garavani Toile Iconographe, an eye-catching pattern created by repeating the Maison’s V logo. This motif, available in different versions – red or black on a beige background, pink on a pink background, with crystals on black satin or leather-colored – can add personality and charm to even the most traditional outfit with its visual character.
Luxury shoes for women: the trend colors
We’ve seen the trendy patterns, inserts and motifs that can enhance and complement luxury footwear. But which are the most fashionable colors of the moment?
First and foremost is a great classic that never goes out of fashion due to its elegance and innate class: black. Black shoes are suitable for every occasion and can be chosen both to complete an all-black look and to enhance a casual, chic outfit.
Neutral colors are also timeless, from cream to camel, through white, cream and beige, ideal for stylish women who opt for a tone-on-tone layout.
Designer shoes in bright and bold colors are indispensable, essential accessories to add a touch of vibrancy to the look without sacrificing the class and style of the big fashion houses.
