Must-Have Shoes of the Season

Last week we caught up with Angela Buttolph, fashion guru, author and Contributing Editor of Grazia Magazine in The Shoe Rooms of Brown Thomas Dublin, to find out her must have shoes of the season.

Angela is a top style expert, who is known for her weekly fashion features in Grazia, hosts A Week of Dressing Dangerously and Fashion Victim Rehab on BBC TV and regularly broadcasts her shopping advice on BBC Radio 1’s Morning Show.  Buttolph is also the author of Kate Moss: Style Icon, a style biography about the fashion icon of a generation.

So without further ado, here are Angela´s top shoe choices for AW11, how to style them and if you hurry, you can buy them for yourself,   just in time for the winter wedding and party season!

Look 1


Model Yomiko wears an outfit by The Kooples and boots by Acne.

“Doc Marten style boots are THE boots of the season for autumn winter 2011”.

Look 2

Tartan dress by Carven with Brian Atwood ankle boots

“Style tip: start with the shoe and then choose the outfit. After all this is what SJP and Alexa Chung do.  Grazia´s Style hunter always looks for amazing shoes to photograph. A great shoe nails the look”.

Look 3

isabel marant top

Isabel Marant top, leopard print bag and glitter shoes.

“Digital prints and especially clashing prints are all in this season. Wear with a pair of clashing shoes. This look would definitely get into Style Hunter” Angela says.

Look 4


Jumpsuit by Whistles

“This is a great look to pull off the minimalist trend. Alexa Chung would wear these patent brogues with tux jacket.”

Look 5


Tory Burch Shoes, Marc Jacobs top and  flared jeans by Rachel Zoë.

“I´m obsessed with the 1970s trend and the studio 54 era, especially all the tan leather!”

Look 6


YSL tribute shoes worn with an off the shoulder, leopard print dress with balcony sleeves by Rachel Zoë.

“If you only buy one shoe this season, this is the one. It´s all about the late 70s disco look”

Look 7


Acne Aviator jacket, skirt by Raoul.  Kurt Geiger boots.

“The Aviator jacket is still in season and is worn here with a midi skirt.  Hanna who does Style Hunter for Grazia loves these skirts and you and don’t need to be skinny to wear them either.

Style Tip: Wear tall ankle boots with a midi skirt, and socks peeping out.  This look spells out cool and edgy – be sure to wear your shirt buttoned right up!”

Look 8


D & G Kitten heels

“A pencil skirt worn with kitten heels is irresistable to most men!”

Look 9


Cape and skinny trousers, both Marni. Dries van Noten perspex heels.

Style tip:  Short trousers make ankles look skinny. This Marni cape is offset by a skinnier silhouette on the bottom half”.

Look 10


Shoes by Kurt Geiger, Whistles skirt.

“The long, pleated midi skirt in chiffon is quite the Carrie Bradshaw look.

Everyone in the Grazia office bought the Whistles short pleated skirt this summer – this is winter version. You´ve been warned..get it before it sells out!”
