Okay, we’re not even halfway through the decade, so there are certainly more trends to come! But we already spotted quite a few, ranging from vampy cutout shoes to simple ballet flats. It seems that we’ve finally learned to mix style and comfort. There’s a little something for everyone, whether you like a bird’s eye view atop skyscraper heels or prefer to stay grounded. Which is your favorite style?
Charles Philip Shanghai Satin Leopard Print Smoking Slipper: I would be remiss to mention smoking slippers and leave out Charles Philip. He’s largely responsible for their popularity, and with fall’s animal print trend, these are the slippers to slip into! At Bergdorf Goodman for $160.
Burberry Peep Toe Booties: Booties hit the big-time in the ‘10s, and when you cover up so much, a little peep-toe pop is just the right thing (pedicure required!). At Bloomingdale’s for $750.
Repetto Cendrillon Glossed-Leather Ballet Flats: If you’re going to sport ballet flats, it’s best to go straight to the source. Repetto has been making dancing shoes since the ‘40s. On NET-A-PORTER for $295.
Chloé Studded Python Ankle Boots: This super studded shoe is one of the most popular boots of the year and the epitome of the decade’s beloved style – low-heeled comfort. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,750.
Alejandro Ingelmo Ariposa Pump: This is one of the trendiest of the bunch, and it’s also the most fun. Alejandro is the master of crazy, sexy cutouts, and this pair of pumps (inspired by butterflies) is one of his most exciting. On Farfetch for $1,005.
Charlotte Olympia Pumps: I might as well have labeled this section “Charlotte Olympia.” Brit designer Charlotte Dellal is the Queen of Kitsch, so it only makes sense for her to create shoes fit for queens – Rapunzel ($1,472.69) and Sleeping Beauty ($856.95) to be exact! On Farfetch.
