We’re at the peak of sale season and there are still plenty of bargains to snap up at Daniel Footwear. We’ve had a look into next season’s trends to help you get the most out of your sale finds, after all a good way to justify your spending on a cost per wear basis!
Borrowed from the boys
A step away from the classic black dress, tailored tuxedos provide a refreshing new evening look that feels just right for the new season. This trend can be made more feminine with careful attention to detail, a peep toe front on a simple black shoe, a heeled shoe boot, shimmering sequin details on fabrics and low cut necklines. The party season has had a makeover and we can’t wait to get involved!
Our top sale finds for the masculine trend:
The Androgyny trend has become increasingly popular over the past few seasons. We’ve seen nods to it from the likes of Alexa Chung in her monochrome tux style outfits and now the AW11 catwalk shows are proving that it’s here to stay (for this season at least).

Exotic Jewel Tones
Rich jewel tones were all over the AW11 catwalk shows, think rich emerald greens, ruby reds and sapphires – these colours should look as luxurious as they sound so think satin, silk and suede materials.

Start looking out for statement pieces in the key jewel tone colours out for this season. They’ll be hitting the shops about now so it’s the ideal time to start perfecting your party looks for AW. Experiment with different hues to find the perfect shade for your skin tone.
For the fetish trend it’s very important not to overdo it for obvious reasons… Subtle hints and nods towards the trend will make it stylish and chic so try a lace shirt, patent finish on shoes, sheer fabrics – all in black of course.

Think stylish, ladylike bags for your shopping trips this season – ideal for the Sixties trend with mini skirts and knee high boots.
