Since Summer 2011 these shoes (which used to be worn by rich, old men when they reclined to the drawing room for a puff on their pipes) made it to becoming one of the year’s hottest shoe trends. And this Autumn and Winter the trend is still going. No smoke without fire.
First introduced by designers like Christian Louboutin and Alexander McQueen, the smoking slipper doesn’t have to look like you’re wearing your granddad’s slippers. With studded and animal print versions available, smoking slippers have become the perfect alternative to ballet pumps and will go with any outfit, casual or dressed up.

For a comfortable yet stylish way to wear heels this season a block heel is the perfect way to go. Although the chunkiness of the heel gives off a tough and edgy look, it can easily be worn with skirts and dresses for a night out. Also, the chunky heel gives enough stability for the shoe to also be worn casually throughout the day.

Coloured Chunky Heels by Forever 21 – £13.99
This year, trainers were no longer considered the chav’s accessory and with wedged versions seen all over the high street this Summer, the usually sporty shoe now can look more dressed up.

A shoe that’s going to keep nearly all of your leg warm, what more could one want? A mix between sexy and practical it allows you to still go bare-legged without getting too cold.
And for a style change-up, it can be worn with trousers for an equestrian look. Even though it’s a trend that repeats itself year after year, there’s a reason why – this type of shoe is versatile yet gives enough coverage for the cooler months and has gained itself the status of being a staple wardrobe piece.

Cap toe shoes
Reminiscent of the classic Chanel cap toed ballet pump, the cap toe shoe has been trending since Summer of this year. Like the smoking slippers, the cap toe shoe is a cool alternative to the traditional ballet pump that one would usually wear as their staple flat shoe.
