Steve Madden. A name synonymous with affordable designer dupes! A name that’s also always on top of every footwear trend to emerge – sometimes in a matter of days.
He has also ventured into apparel and designer handbag dupes but for today? Let’s stick with shoes.
Because if there’s one thing I think we can all agree on about the winter season it’s that we’re in primetime for footwear! Sure sandals have their moment in the summer months but there’s nothing quite like rocking a good of boots! They’re satisfying and offer such an assortment that you really can easily convince yourself that there’s always room for another pair in your closet.
And considering how costly that can become, it’s wonderful to have Mr. Steve Madden ushering trendy styles at a much more modest price than their designer counterparts. If it’s a service you enjoy, SM also now accepts After Pay.
Steve Madden Fall 2021 Collection
Yes. We can agree that Steve Madden is a worthy go-to for trendy shoes every season and the Steve Madden Fall 2021 lineup is no exception.
It was a sleek pair of patent leather booties with chunky gold details that first caught my eye when they appeared on Instagram. After (immediately) placing an order for my own pair, I went down a rabbit hole perusing all the latest arrivals and there are so many fun new styles that are perfect for day-to-day wear as well as dressing up in the evening.
Being a master of creating designer dupes, it of course came as little surprise to see the Steve Madden Fall 2021 collection feature a dupe for Versace’s platform pumps as well as dupes for Prada’s ever practical boots with a built-in coin purse for stowing — a key? Spare change? You decide.
It’s also clear Steve Madden is fully aboard the chunky sole trend we’ve been seeing just about everywhere the last few seasons. From chunky loafers that are no doubt a Fall 2021 essential to modern combat boots, the heavier the sole – the better. And of course it wouldn’t be a fall/winter collection without some sparkly fun offerings for party time!
Take a closer look at the Steve Madden Fall 2021 collection below and let me know if you have a favorite style.
The Chunky Boot
If you’re ready to put your sleek riding boots aside and stomp around in chunky boots you are in luck! The Steve Madden Fall 2021 collection is full of thick-soled pull-on booties and combat boots that will have you looking like you’re on your way to Hot Topic after school. Pair these with a plaid flannel button-down and you’ll be living your own version of My So Called Life.
The Chunky Loafer
Last year we saw chunky boots make a major comeback and this year loafers are following suit! These definitely take me back to my middle school days and will look fantastic with with an A-line mini skirt or floral midi dress that looks like it’s off-the-rack from The Limited. Oh the nostalgia!
Gold Hardware Detailing
Alongside our riding boots, we can put silver jewelry on the back burner as gold is having its moment all over again! Chunky gold jewelry especially is everywhere this season and while you can find all kind of fantastic costume pieces — you can also find chunky chains making their way onto footwear as well.
Clueless Platforms Pumps
You could say they’re Cher Horowitz approved as well, but it’s really Donatella Versace we can thank for platform pumps having their moment this season. For a more affordable option, Steve Madden is delivering near identical dupes of the Versace platform pumps we saw models like the Hadid sisters wear on the fall runway.
For safe celebratory fun, the Steve Madden Fall 2021 collection features an array of sparkling booties and heels that are ready to party.
Practical Prada Dupe
Miuccia Prada x Raf Simons have been cooking up several buzz-worthy styles since their partnership began last fall. Perhaps the most practical is their inclusion of built-in coin purses on everything from jackets and gloves to boots. At a much more modest price, Steve Madden has unveiled his version in brown, black, militant green and even sparkling rhinestones. Because why not?
Athleisure has been steadily on the rise for the last few years but especially after the pandemic hit. We now live in a time wear comfort is considered stylish and trainers aren’t just for gym sessions after work.
