Shoe trends for 2014 and the autumn/winter 2013 period have all been played out on the runways of the last fashion week, and it's now time to start homing in on our favourite styles: the looks that will define the coming season in footwear, from high end filtering down to the high street shoes that we'll all be wearing come autumn. It's always exciting to take stock of the new styles that will come to define a season, and we're already seeing certain patterns emerging:

One important look is the winter sandal: just as many runway garments for A/W 2013/14 have been said to have a summery look about them, so do the shoes, and we're seeing a blurring of seasonal styles, with an emphasis on highly embellished sandals, as well as pale colours and floral motifs. But there will also be plenty of chunky boots and suede Mary Janes to bring us down to earth with more winter-friendly shoes at every turn.

I will continue to add to this gallery as the season progresses, bringing in new looks and pieces from designers whose products drop later in the year - but for now, feast your eyes on these A/W 2013 treasures from Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Lanvin and more.
