The most important fashion shows always bring together interesting style concepts that manage to expand our style vision and ignite the desire to renew our wardrobe and exciting shoe styles have a particularly strong impact in creating this need for upgrading. The most important high-end brands have managed to dazzle fashion enthusiasts again with truly lust-worthy shoes.

Dangerously high heels have their charm and the most important labels have placed a high emphasis on these types of shoes to create a lasting impression on the viewer. Fashion houses like Vera Wang, Lanvin, Versace or Prada have highlighted killer high platform heels as alluring shoe style options for the new season. Although not really a novelty, the shoe styles are extremely interesting in terms of construction and motifs used.

From well defined shapes in fairly popular design concepts to edgier touches or motifs that reflect the theme a certain designer has chosen for its spring 2012 collection, floral motifs, transparency, beads or rhinestones are some of the elements used to create interest and even portray certain trends with the potential to become mainstream shoe style alternatives.

Along with platform pumps, wedges and shiny shoes options were also fairly popular at this edition of the Fashion Weeks. Shoe styles like the ones presented at Alexander McQueen or Burberry Prorsum have drawn a lot of attention. Since the representation of luxury was also an important concern of the designer, opulent tones like gold were generously used. The Yves Saint Laurent brand has focused on this particular trend to give the outfits created a more sophisticated allure.

Sophisticated and elegant or trendy and instantly attention grabbing, the shoe style options provided by the most important fashion houses from the main fashion capitals, New York, London, Milan and Paris have definitely sparked enough interest for the upcoming months in terms of accessories and the style options presented will definitely inspire many of the style alternatives to be found in some of the most important stores.
