Shoe Trends vary from year to year. One year it will all be about the ballet flat and the next it’s about the sky high stiletto. Each shoe trend has its place in the fashion world, and some enjoy more popularity than others. These are just a few of the latest trends for shoes out there.
You may have noticed that glitter shoes are everywhere these days. The look is fun and frivolous, and definitely a statement maker. Whether you choose a pair of glitter flats or breathtaking high heels, as long as its glitter, it’s on trend.
Shoes with raffia or woven straw details are typical of spring/summer trends. Brogue or lace-up shoes with raffia soles were seen on the Prada catwalks, so it’s a look with some weight behind it.
Despite me thinking that the kitten heel was well and truly dead, it seems that designers are bringing back this shoe trend. It’s in keeping with the ladylike theme that is in fashion these days. The look is demure and is well suited for those who are averse to sky high heels.
The alternative and grungy trend is still going strong. If the typical black or white creeper shoe doesn’t do it for you, you can always try your hand at lighter or pastel colours. For a more wearable option, choose creeper shoes with a shorter and less noticeable platform.
Clothes trends also influence trends for shoes. Thanks to the current sport inspired trend, hi-top sneakers are going to become quite fashionable. The usually feminine Isabel Marant has introduced a sporty looking hi-top sneaker into her collection and it’s already a hit with fashionistas the world over.
There’s been a current trend lately for anything sheer and clear. Transparent shoes are just one way to wear the trend. Steer clear of anything too tacky though – keep it to a single feature such as a clear heel or clear strap.
Are you sick of hearing the term ‘colour blocking’ yet? If so, I’m sorry to say that this trend will be around for a while yet. Colour blocked shoes are a great way of working this trend and adding pops of colour to an outfit.
While they seem to have gone out of fashion for a while, pointed toe shoes are once again back in fashion thanks to designers such as Louis Vuitton. The look can be quite severe so if you want, add a touch of girlish charm to your pointed shoes with bow details.
These days it’s all about adding extra height. The platform shoe trend has been dominating the fashion scene and it’s a wonder how much higher heels can actually go! When wearing platform shoes, choose ones with thicker heels for more stability.
The current trends for shoes are quite all quite different. There seems to be a shoe trend to cover all manner of different tastes and styles. What do you think of these particular shoe trends?
