Last year, thanks to the Adidas Stan Smith relaunch, all white sneakers were the ultimate fall fashion statement. While the white sneakers trend is going to endure as long as celebrities like Taylor Swift, the Beckhams and Kardashians are wearing them, this fall, women are starting to lean towards other styles. From platform style kicks to classics that are now welcome in the workplace, the latest 2016 sneaker trends for women will help you overcome your all white sneaker obsession.
The platform sneaker is at the top of our list when it comes to fall shoe fashion. Providing a discreet lift, platform sneakers improve the natural lines of any outfit while adding a few inches to your frame. Two of our favorite fall platform sneakers are the Fenty Puma by Rihanna in orange camouflage print and the Vince “Warner” zip front in black.
At a casual glance embellished sneakers look like average workout apparel. However, after giving them a closer inspection you’ll discover elaborate designs that transform casual footwear into a strong fashion statement. Women who appreciate understated elegance will enjoy wearing the Ryley Crystal embellished slip on sneaker by Donald J. Pliner in ocean or black.
Classic trainers never truly go out of style, and this fall the trend is making a major comeback. Casual and comfortable, the trainer is an ideal sneaker choice for anyone who spends hours hiking around a busy school campus. Trainers are also becoming popular in professional settings as designs that go well with women’s suits and skirts are introduced. Our favorite workplace trainer for women this fall is the Rose Rankin Colt Runner line.
