HELLO OCTOBER - Autumn Shoe and Boot Style Edit

By Fiona Shackleton
HELLO OCTOBER - Autumn Shoe and Boot Style Edit

October is officially our favourite month. It has it all. Great weather, great scenery and great fashion. Big coats, cosy knits and… you guessed it, boots, loafers and trainers!

And then when the sun sets, you can either go for all-out comfort with our range of Lunar Slippers or get those heels on for an autumnal night out.

 Here are our favourite trends for autumn/winter 2018:

Animal Print

To be honest, it never goes away, but for some reason, we’re into animal prints more than ever this season. We especially love a bit of leopard print with a pop of red. It’s such a great look for a night out at this time of year.

According to Grazia, designers have opted for wild takes on the trend, but if you prefer to accessorise with the print instead, we stock a gorgeous pair of Leopard Print Court Heels from Lunar.

The Keisha is one of our higher heeled courts with a pointed toe. But high doesn’t have to mean uncomfortable. The padded insole enhances the comfort factor on this gorgeous heel.



Thankfully you can wear leopard print in the day too. These gorgeous leopard print loafers from Lunar will become a staple. As a key piece at ShuBoutique, they work just as well with jeans and a blazer, as they do with a black work suit.

We can even cater to the super casual style with these amazing trainers from Fabs.

All about the Studs

If Alexander Wang can do it, then so can ShuBoutique thanks to XTI. The Spanish brand has added subtle silver studs to the majority of our style picks this season. From court heels and heeled boots, to casual ankle boots and knee boots, XTI has the stud trend covered.

Prices start from £35.00

We absolutely adore the XTI Court Heels in Black (and also available in Navy), which matched up to Victoria Beckham’s stirrup legging with court heel outfit no problem – without the hefty designer price tag.

Some of our bags are inspired by this trend too. Whether you like a classic Valentino style stud or a studded Givenchy Pandora style, again XTI and Carmela have pulled out the stops, offering classic black, navy and tan styles, as well as burgundy and blush.

Chelsea Boots with Edge

According to who what wear, Chelsea boots have got a bit of edge this season. We love that a hint of well-placed detail has been added to this staple boot. Don’t get us wrong, we love classic, but we also love revived too.

Lunar has added colour with the Grey and Red Moselle, which are gorgeous leather slip-on boots with a luxuriously padded insole to enhance the comfort factor.

Lunar Leather Chelsea Boots £54.99

And XTI has added everything. That’s right, they have done a chunky sole, gem details and a range of colours – it’s difficult to decide which one we like best of all!

However, our overall Chelsea Boot favourite has to be from Carmela. carmela stud chelsea boot black

The black flat boot has a stunning gem filled heel design encrusted on beautiful black suede, it has a slightly chunky sole and is made with beautiful leather at the front. It’s a stunning all rounder and at an excellent price too at £69.00.


Bold Statement Boots

The seventies, eighties, victoriana and sock boot. The idea is that these do all the talking (as well as all the walking). The best part is getting to wear a great pair of boots on a night out, in order to keep our toes away from the elements. Our selection is also designed to suit trousers, dresses, skirts and culottes.

Lunar, Fabs and XTI have won this trend by far.

Commuter Boots

When those blustery showers come our way, there is no way that your usual trainers are going to protect you during your commute. That’s why we love our very aptly named Commuter Boot selection from Carmela and XTI.

The boots have trainer style soles, are fur lined and made from beautifully soft suede in a range of colours. Of if waterproofing is more your fix, XTI has these great welly ankle boots.

And when you get to the office, well…


Loafers and Brogues from £32.99
