BROCADE BRIGADE

  • Kat Maconie's "dancer" embroidery gives a strong graphic look to these suede boots. The unique block heel adds angular interest.
  • The soft tropical floral print is offset by a sharp pointed toe, and edgy back zip. Paler colours avoid the drabness of dark autumnal colours. Great with grey.
  • Intricate Eastern-inspired embroidery stands out brightly against a black background. A modest 2½" heel gives lift with comfort.
  • Sequins give a 3-dimensional look to these black beauties from & Other Stories. Great with a short-trousered tuxedo for gender bending evening glam.
  • Red or Dead provide a dash of vintage with this embroidery pattern. This is contrasted by a more modern, unusually-placed asymmetric zip.
  • A beautiful fabric of blues and gold surrounds both the upper and heel of these simple ASOS ankle boots. The perfect 3"-heel for all-evening wear.
  • Ornate gold jacquard combines with an ultra feminine bow and 1960s-style square toe. These boots are lifted by an easy 2" heel.
  • Who says cherry blossom is only seen in the springtime? Sam Edelman have perked up a dark winter boot with this pink metallic embroidery.
  • A mixture of native American influences combine to create the earthy-toned embroidery on this Topshop boot. Go bohemian, or sharpen with tailoring.
  • Something about the style of embroidery and the shape of these boots reminds me of traditional Chinese lotus shoes. Don't expect toe-bending discomfort here.

 

Autumn weather = more substantial footwear. Your feet may feel sad at the end of summer and a little claustrophobic but it’s not all doom, gloom, and chilblains. There are some positive things about the change in season. Full coverage shoes and boots provide a larger canvas for displaying your style.

When clothing colours become more sombre, dressing from the feet up helps you to make a statement.

Brocade, jacquard, and embroidery feature on many of the new boots in the shops and online this season. Fabric boots can look rich, but remain affordable.
