A Definitive Guide To This Season’s Footwear Trends
After what seems like an eternity of dressing up to stay in, trends are starting to pop up again here, there, and everywhere. We have social media to thank for that! Because even though the world has come to a halt...fashion doesn’t wait for anyone.
Whether it’s for a quick convenience store run, a socially-distanced dinner with your partner, or simply walk around your apartment with a little bit of flair, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite footwear trends for the season - and how we’ve put our own spin on each one.
Take note, ladies, we have a feeling these are here to stay.
A classic with a twist: the pump
Also referred to as “court shoes”, pumps have been around since the XVII and XVIII century (back when even men wore heels…). An essential wardrobe staple, pumps are considered the perfect “trans-seasonal” accessory: they do just as well in the winter as they do in the spring. The perfect touch for any dressed up, casual, or smart look, pumps are a high-heeled multifaceted version of the little black dress.
Head over heels for pumps? Why not give our Dale mid-heel pumps spin? You know what they say: there’s no such thing as a pump too many.
Pro tip: Angular figures have been all the rage lately, as well as polished metal, colorful acrylics, and even hand-carved wood to breathe new life into a classic heel. This is the perfect way to combine both timeless and modern vibes into a single shoe.
A versatile piece: the ankle boot
A dominating force, the ankle boot has been a fan favorite through the years. Because of their adaptability and day-to-day functionality, ankle boots are popular with women from all walks of life who want to add a little spring to their step. Wear them to add a little height to a casual outfit or spruce up a workplace attire...the choice is yours! Plus, ankle boots also come with an added bonus: you can find them with both high-end or affordable pricetags.
Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to go all out: textures, hardware, and even colored leathers have been making an appearance this season. When it comes to shape, we suggest you opt for a square-toe boot. Doric leather boots, anyone?
A ladylike classic: the strappy sandal
This easy to wear silhouette has stood the test of time and is still a top contender when it comes to women’s footwear. The great thing is, you can play around with the heel shape and size to give your own pair a little je ne sais quoi that contrasts their mostly minimalistic look.
Pro tip: Choose thin straps that go over the bridge of your foot and opt for knots and wraps instead of buckles. When it comes to heels, choose anything from classic blocks to an all-time favorite: the classic stiletto. When in doubt, say “YES!” to our Lily heels!
Add a POP! of color
You’ve picked your favorite, now how about you shake things up a bit?
Listen, I get it. We all know black is a girl’s best friend. But don’t you think there’s something special about playing with color when it comes to your footwear. Why not take our outfit to the next level with our Galaxy metallic mid-heel boots?
“Trends were meant to be broken”
Trends come and go, but there’s something we can all agree on: it’s probably time you ditch the house slippers for something a little less casual, don’t you think?
So whether you’re constantly refreshing fashion blogs to see what the next “big thing” is (spoiler alert: it’s probably been done before), or constantly looking for ways to flip trends off (welcome to the club, is that how you found us? ;)) there’s nothing wrong with finding a little guidance along the way.
Hey...even rebels need a shot of inspiration every now and then.
