Every accessory design comes and goes with the times, and even in upscale clothing and italian shoes, trends will change. High-end, good quality footwear has a classic touch that will remain, but the details are often slightly adjusted to make certain they have an appearance that is updated and current. Today, the hottest trends have been achieved by making those subtle changes that make a huge difference.
Thinner shoes that look less bulky and boxy are more commonly being seen. These shoes have a noticeable taper, but are not sharply pointed, making them stylish, but still comfortable. Both slip-ons and lace-up shoes are popular, but how a person dresses will decide which they should choose. Lace-ups are the trendiest and look the best with slim fitting suits. They also have the power to dress up a casual weekend outfit just enough to make it acceptable as work-casual.
Leather soles are also currently in vogue, making it into many of the trendiest fashion magazines. To wear them best it is suggested to select a shoe with a thicker sole and taller heel. Although leather is considered the standard in most quality footwear, rubber soles and those with rubber inlays are also flying off the shelves, thanks to their comfort, traction and durability is the wettest of weather.
More than anything, quality is the best feature. Genuine leather, like the Italian leather creations by Paul Evans are an exceptional choice. They offer lace-ups, loafers, boots and more. All are carefully crafted with the finest materials and attention is paid to even the smallest details. The grain of the high-quality leather adds a subtle beauty that makes each pair unique, and the shades of gold, burgundy and glossy brown and black will help them blend perfectly with any wardrobe.
Remember however, that no matter how styles change, the old standards still matter. All fashion experts insist that no matter how many trendy pairs of shoes are tucked in a closet, the traditional black lace-up is a necessity. Not only will it work with any suit color or style, it can also do double-duty with a casual ensemble as well.
