Time to step into the holidays


A holiday fashion and beauty overhaul need not stop in the makeup and wardrobe departments. Now more than ever, with the threat of afternoon rainfall becoming more frequent and the temperature cooling down with Christmas approaching, proper—and stylish—footwear is a must to truly step into the holidays.

So today, The Manila Times scores the latest trends straight from the runway to deck them footsies for the most wonderful time of the year.

Lady booties
Fashion icon Marilyn Monroe famously said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” For Holiday 2017, conquering the season means wearing statement boots with pearl accents and ruffle details.

Runway reports for this trend were all about the glitter boots of Saint Laurent and Chanel, and thigh-high booties from the houses of Fendi and Balenciaga.

In short, boots are definitely big for the holidays in the international scene so that local shoes and bags brand Parisian also has its version of the dolled-up footwear, in sync with the Philippine setting. Think open-toed boots and ankle and thigh-high choices too, but in less wintery materials as suede and nylon.

As for the ruffle details Gucci and Chloe set off for the season, these find their way into stilettos and flats to pretty up the holiday parties.

Relaxed classics
Denim, canvas and faux suede find their way on men’s footwear for the holidays. Handsome and masculine, these choice materials allow men to look polished without sacrificing comfort.

Whether for oxfords, brogues or slip-ons, American footwear retailer Payless picks up the trend perfectly, combining design with the comfort of memory foam insoles, flexible outsoles and sturdy stacked heels to ease the feet from all the holiday activities.

Family a-‘pair’
Why come in individual styles when the family can doll up in matching shoes?

Simply Shoes—the SM store’s all-in-one shoe stop for men’s, women’s and children’s footwear—suggest holiday togetherness with styles for everyone.

Take a cue from celebrity couple Cristine Reyes and Ali Kathibi and their adorable toddler Amarah, in their muted ensembles paired with regal blue footsies.
