Here at DuoBoots we love classic, timeless styles but we’re also inspired by the most exciting catwalk trends! This means we can always offer our customers an eclectic choice of boots and ankle boots to cover all occasions.
With so many exciting trends in the AW18 ready-to-wear collections, we thought we would show you how to get the look for our favourite trend-inspired looks this season.
What trend will you follow?
Animal print has been seen everywhere this season, with leopard print right through to snake prints featuring all over the catwalks. Our designers here at DuoBoots have adopted this top trend across four ankle boots in our AW18 collection, in a number of different styles and shapes from stylish heels to classic Chelsea boots. You can see here Ralph Lauren featuring a high heeled boot in a beautiful hair leopard print; you can get this look with our very own Ryton Leopard Hair Leather.
This winter we think the lace up style is both stylish and practical and so does the designer Jonathan Simkhai, who recently featured this lace up detailing in both black and brown across his Autumn/Winter 18 ready-to-wear collection. Following a fantastic response to our brogue-inspired customer favourite, Balla, and knowing the lace-up trend is here to stay, our designers chose to expand this collection to offer you even more choice of colours and textures in lace-ups. Balla is now available in black leather, tan leather and grey suede. What's more, its big sister ‘Marvel’ is also available in black leather.
Metallics have been spotted from head to toe across the catwalks this season; we ourselves couldn’t resist merging the current metallic trend with a cowboy-esque edge to create our ‘Hockley’ ankle boot – a customer favourite. Here are some examples straight from the AW18 catwalk by designers Altuzarra and Calvin Klein. This high shine trend has been seen returning year on year, so why not embrace the trend with a pair of Hockley silver ankle boots?
A trend standing strong from SS18 is the square toe feature that took hold this summer across a range of sandals and pumps. However, following the AW18 fashion shows it appears that this trend is set to lead again this season. We love the square toe as a contrast to the commonly featured pointed toe, and we are not alone... designers including the likes of Lowe and Victoria Beckham have also been featuring the square toe shape in their latest collections.
Our designers have embraced the love for the square toe across two styles, the ankle boot ‘Shimmer’ featured below... which comes in three different colour options. And don’t miss our timeless knee high boot ‘Aversely; the trusty boot for all-occasions’
Cowboy boots are back and this really is the boot to be wearing this season! We love the way you can dress a Western style boot up or down with ease; shown by a number of designers including Ralph Lauren on the AW18 catwalk. We're also embracing the western inspired look. Our Autumn Winter ‘18 collection includes cowboy style ankle boots, in some truly unique leathers., ‘Hockley’ is again our hero; in its three different colour options, that would undoubtedly make eye-catching additions to your wardrobe. Or if you prefer something more for everyday wear we have designed the ‘Paxton’ that comes in beautiful tan leather.
