AW16 Sole Ideas for Mother’s Day


AW16 Sole Ideas for Mum.jpg

Does your mum love shoes as much as we do? Probably!  Here are different shoe styles for your mum to fit into.


Boho-chic is versatile and not just for the young hipsters. This AW16 season, mix your wardrobe with a flowered or tassled shirt, with pair of denim jeans and a brown pair of  Hawley Brown by Therapy, also comes in a camel colour. This season we have different shades of brown boots that will help you mix and match your style.


Boho Chic Mum - Hawley Brown


The style “casual” is so loosely used these days. For mums who likes to dress casually at work or anywhere without feeling left behind of trendy, a solution is an easy pair of flats or slip on shoes. We chose Jasper Tan by Bare Traps because it’s versatile and it’s a smart slip shoe that’s easy to wear with a small heel and a perforated design which can be worn with a pair of jeans or skirt- it’s the smart casual look.




Casual Mum - Jasper Tan


Nothing beats a pair of black heels- it’s your classic go-to-shoe, every gal should have one. Naomi Black by Bare Traps has a comfortable size heel that provides just the right comfort and the shiny patent on the front and back gives a new overhaul on the classic black. This can be worn as part of your office wear wardrobe or out for a nice dinner date with a dress or skirt.



Classic-Modern Mum - Naomi Black


To dress for the winter season, we bring back the classic knee high boot with buckles on the side. It’s a classic style boot that can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans, tights or even a skirt. Stibbie Brown by London Rebel has an elastic panel at the back and a full length side zipper which makes it easier to fit into.


Comfy Mum - Stibbie Brown


Mums who are constantly on the move, in and out of the house- we’ve got the right shoes for you. Go Walk 2-Heathered Grey/ Turquoise slip shoe is the go-to comfy shoe, it can be worn for your daily walk, running errands, or long plane rides and it so light weight. Go Walk shoes are one of the top recommended active-wear slip on shoes by our store managers because of its demand. A great gift for mums!



Sporty Mum - Go Walk 2 Heathered Grey Turq


We love the contrast and the buckle on this new ankle heel boot. It’s trendy and on point! It’s bold and confident. You could wear so many outfits with these shoes and the size of the heel is just right, not too high and not too low – 7.5 cm. Dazzle Black by Simona Ricci also has a side zipper with an almond shape toe.



Trendy Mum - Dazzle Black


A pair of Shearers Ugg Australia slipper is just what every mum needs to make her feel warm and cozy at home this AW16 season. Lucinda Chestnut by Shearers Ugg Australia is an ankle boot with the folded collar and light weight sole, which makes it easier to slip into.

Autumn is here and it’s such a great way to start playing with fashion wardrobe and shoes! It’s a perfect time transitioning to clothes for cooler weather without going into a complete full head to-toe dress up. Also a nice way to flirt with the season’s trends from key pieces from your  closest and embracing the new items you recently bought!  So keeping that I mind, these trans-seasonal shoes we carry at FSW Shoes will give you a guide on what pair you could wear with clothes from the past and present – from casual jeans, skirts, dresses and jumpsuits!

This year the importance of trans-seasonal shoes is to be a bit more playful with the wardrobe that you currently have and be flexible with old and new pieces.

Navy baby

Smart navy shoes have become a trend for spring/summer 2015 with a variety of shoes to choose from. Depending on the type of venue of your formal, if you like the ‘smart casual’ look- then navy is your colour from leather to micro-suede.  The navy colour brings wit and hip to a casual outfit. For formals this year you can go with a smart casual look by pairing navy shoes in chinos, a patterned shirt, dress coat and top it off with a cute bow tie (or if you’re feeling daring, wear a washed out blue suit.) If you wish to go a little smarter – a waistcoat over a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up will turn heads.
